Europa League: The reason why Chelsea’s draw against Slavia Prague is a great omen for the Blues
Chelsea’s top four hopes took a huge blow last weekend with a 2-0 defeat to Everton.
Maurizio Sarri is reportedly on the brink of the sack at Stamford Bridge as his side sit three points adrift of the Champions League spots.
However, the Blues’ Europa League campaign is still intact and they have the easiest possible route to the final in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Chelsea face Czech side Slavia Prague in the next round and if they emerge victorious they will play the winners of Eintracht Frankfurt and Benfica in the semi-final.
The draw is also a very good omen for the club as the last time they faced a side from Prague they went onto win the competition.
Chelsea beat Sparta Prague 2-1 on aggregate in the Round of 32 stage in 2013 and later beat Steaua Bucharest, Rubin Kazan and Basel to triumph in the competition under Rafael Benitez.
So if you’re superstitious, Blues fans, there’s still reason to be optimistic this season as a European trophy is headed to west London.
