Chelsea is unbeaten in their last five games, in nine of their last ten, and in thirteen of their last fifteen. At home, their record has been even impressive as the Blues are unbeaten in their last ten attempts, and in 23 of their last 25.
In the meanwhile, Frankfurt is winless in their last four fixtures, and in six of their last seven. On the road, they repeated the feat in their last three tries.
Importantly, their confidence took a major beating as they lost 6-1 to their nearest competitor in the top-four race, which would open the gate to the next edition of the Champions League. The team’s CL future hangs in the balance, while Chelsea just confirmed their participation with a stylish 3-0 win at home against Watford.
Going on, the Blues have an away goal advantage, which will force the visitors further up the pitch.
Maurizio Sarri’s men, who have been exemplary at home, all through this season, will take advantage of this fact, and try to capitalize on it. They will surely not take the risk of defending this sole-goal lead.
As such, we can expect end-to-end football, with both teams desperate to score and bring the fare under control.
Chelsea has scored two or more goals in 13 of their last 16 home ties, and with Frankfurt having to concentrate more on the offense, the hosts will get on the scorecard somehow.
This will lead to the attack led by Luka Jovic to go more fiercely after the Chelsea nets, and at one point or the other, the German side who has scored in their last eight away ties, and two or more goals in five of them, will get past the home defense.
Everything points towards the fans having an incredible goal-fest to be thrilled about. Expect at least three goals in this spirited tie.
