Chelsea: A 0-0 draw will be enough for the Blues to move on, while a 1-1 draw will force extra time. But if there is a draw with multiple goals for either team, the Blues would be on their way out. They are still the favorite in this second leg but have to be cautious about a team in Eintracht that is known for scoring early.
Eintracht: This team is forced to score, or it will be out of the competition. Being more aggressive in attack will be needed and if Chelsea scores one, it's not a big deal because it doesn't really change the fact that they need to find the net. Expect them to go for more balls over the top against an inconsistent Chelsea defense.
Eden Hazard starts in the second leg and scores twice as the Blues move on to the final.
Pick: Chelsea (-290)
