Sarri has never won a trophy in his managerial career and will be desperate to go one step towards doing so at Stamford Bridge on Thursday. After their place in the top four was sealed at the weekend, Chelsea can now pay all their attention to their Europa League campaign.
Luka Jovic headed the Bundesliga side into the lead at the Commerzbank-Arena, but Pedro’s equaliser means the Blues have a valuable away goal and will progress with a 0-0 draw.
The victory means the Blues will be playing UEFA Champions League football next season and takes some of the pressure off Maurizio Sarri’s side, but they will still want to end the season by lifting a European trophy.
Chelsea look as though they will have to cope without key midfielder N’Golo Kante for the second leg after he was forced off with a hamstring injury against Watford.
Chelsea midfielder N’golo Kante went off with a hamstring injury against Watford at the weekend. Sarri admitted that it was a mistake to play the Frenchman, as he is now feared to be out for the remainder of the season.
Eintracht will be waiting to hear on the fitness of key forward Sebastien Haller. The French striker has bagged 14 goals this season, but has been missing in recent games due to an abdominal strain. His fitness will be monitored closely in the lead up to the game, as the German side hope he is fit enough to partner Jovic up front.
