The two Premier League teams expected to meet in the final.

<p> </p><p></p><h2>Chelsea vs Eintracht Frankfurt</h2><p></p><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/chelsea-fc-vs-eintracht-frankfurt-3779623/?mtid=1"><strong>Thursday, May 9, Stamford Bridge</strong></a></p><p><strong>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Semi-final second leg on Thursday! &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/Bly4t9YY9l\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/Bly4t9YY9l&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ChelseaFC/status/1125716222660812800?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 7, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</strong></p><p>Chelsea have booked their Champions League tickets for the next season being 100% sure to finish in top 4 in the Premier League. Chelsea have lost just 1 match at home this season in the Premier League conceding just 12 goals in 19 games on their turf. They are even better in Europe winning their 5 Europa League matches in front of their fans and scoring 15 goals in the process. Olivier Giroud is leading the top scorers chart netting 10 goals so far in the competition and being priced at 2.25 to be anytime goalscorer on Thursday against Eintracht Frankfurt. Chelsea were very unlucky not to win the 1<sup>st</sup> leg in Germany after dominating the entire match giving no chance to Eintracht to play their game.</p><p>On the other side, Eintracht were trashed last weekend in Bundesliga losing 6-1 to Leverkusen but they are still sitting 4<sup>th</sup> in their domestic league standings equal on points with 5<sup>th</sup>-place Leverkusen. They have an amazing squad they are brilliant going forward but it will be very tough for them to pull-off the upset and qualify further in the competitions. Their attacking trio is absolutely amazing but unfortunately, they still missing Haller who is ruled out with abdominal strain. Ante Rebic is back and will try his best to help Luka Jovic in attack.</p><p>We expect a total domination from Chelsea with the host trying to solve the qualification issue from half time. Eintracht might score in this match, but we think that Chelsea’s European experience and squad quality will make the difference.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Chelsea to win with -1.5 Asian Handicap at 2.05 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p><p></p><h2>Valencia vs Arsenal</h2><p></p><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-europa-league/valencia-cf-vs-arsenal-fc-3779622/?mtid=1"><strong>Thursday, May 9, Estadio de Mestalla</strong></a></p><p><strong>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;TO MORE NIGHTS LIKE THIS... 🎉&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/Volem2Finals?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#Volem2Finals&lt;/a&gt; 🔥 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/WeWant2Finals?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#WeWant2Finals&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/KbVlrXpAYx\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/KbVlrXpAYx&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Valencia CF English 🦇💯 (@valenciacf_en) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/valenciacf_en/status/1125528163897843712?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;May 6, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</strong></p><p>The only chance for Arsenal to play next season in the Champions League is to lift the Europa League trophy. They manager, Unai Emery is THE Europa League specialist winning it 3 times in a row with Sevilla so the Arsenal fans are hoping he can win it once again. Considering their poor away record you would think Arsenal will return home with a defeat but their away record in the Europa League is pretty strong winning 8 of their previous 13 matches.</p><p>On the other side, Valencia are fighting Getafe for a top 4 finish in the Spanish top-flight league. They enter this match full of confidence on the back of a great 6-2 win away at Huesca. They managed to score a very important away goal in England, but it will be very difficult for them to overcome the 2-goal deficit and keep out Arsenal from scoring on their turf.</p><p>We expect a thrilling match with Valencia having the necessary weapons to contribute on the scoreboard but with Arsenal being deadly on the break.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goal at 1.9 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p>
