Frankfurt to give Sarri the Blues

Maurizio Sarri

The Europa League’s top two scorers meet in Frankfurt on Thursday night but Eintracht can gain an early advantage against Chelsea in their semi-final first leg.

Frankfurt to win @ 39/20

Die Adler have netted 28 times this season’s competition, with Maurizio Sarri’s Blues topping the charts on 30, and while both will hope to keep things tight, that looks unlikely.

Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud will be looking to make the most of another start as the tournament’s top scorer on 10, but Eintracht have the inspired Luka Jovic who is two behind the Frenchman.

Expect fireworks but Adi Hutter’s side are good at home and a victory looks on the cards, with some punters potentially going further by backing the 17/4 on a home win at BTTS.

Arsenal v Valencia – Draw @ 51/20

In the other Europa League semi-final first leg, Arsenal take on Valencia in what is likely to be a cagier affair.

The Gunners have lost their last three but are coached by a three-time winner of this competition in Unai Emery and his nous helped them overcame Napoli in the last round.

Los Che have themselves lost two in a row but Marcelino schools his side well and they have the joint-third best defence in La Liga.

The Spaniards will look to strangle the game and a share of the spoils may not be too bad for either side.
