The Europa League Semi-finals: Arsenal vs Valencia, Eintracht vs Chelsea

There are just four sides left in the Europa League, with that figure set to be halved after the next round ahead of the final in Baku on May 29.

Valencia will come up against Unai Emery‘s Arsenal, while the other semi-final will see Eintracht Frankfurt pitted up against Chelsea.

Los Che will play the first leg at the Emirates Stadium on May 2, before hosting Arsenal at Mestalla a week later on May 9. Neither Valencia nor Arsenal blinked in their second legs ties as they both emerged victorious against Villarreal and Napoli respectively.

In the other semi-final, the first leg will be played in Frankfurt as Chelsea travel to the Commerzbank-Arena to face Luka Jovic‘s Eintracht. The Germans overcame a 4-2 first-leg defeat to Benfica in Portugal to advance on away goals, having won 2-0 in the second leg. Chelsea, meanwhile, won 4-3 – 5-3 on aggregate – in a crazy match at Stamford Bridge.
