Inter Milan are a big name missing after a shock 1-0 home loss to Eintracht Frankfurt, and so are Sevilla after Slavia Praha stunned them in extra time to win 6-5 on aggregate.

Chelsea will face Slavia Prague in the Europa League quarter-finals. The Blues hammered Dynamo Kiev 8-0 on aggregate to ease into the last eight. Olivier Giroud’s hat-trick was the highlight from Thursday’s thrashing.

The competition has also provided an opportunity for Maurizio Sarri to experiment with his side. Callum Hudson-Odoi is thriving with his increased minutes and has scored four times and assisted two more in his eight appearances so far.

With the Blues locked into a battle for a top four finish, Sarri will be delighted to have the backdoor entry to the Champions League, should it be required. A three-point gap separates them from fourth-placed Arsenal, though a game in hand against Brighton could draw them level.
