Image result for miroslav stoch chelsea epl

lol,in one of his 5 games he ever played for the first team

In his season out on loan at Enschede when he was 19/20 he carried them to their only ever Eredivisie championship to this day with 12 goals from midfield. I beleived he was the real deal, even wathcing some Enschede games and was mad when the board sold him for 5m to Fener. Turned out he did fuck all the rest of his career and that season probably remains his best^^ The first academy graduateI completely overestimated...

Let's hope Barcelona humiliates them like the frauds they are. Some of the biggest luck this season ever.

Hope the first leg of Barca/United is at Old Toilet so some outlandish, ludicrously lucky bullshit doesn't happen in the 96th minute of Fergie time to send them through in their stadium. I'll be hoping Barca can score a couple at United's place and then not be massive chokers like PSG when they return to the Camp Nou.

Interesting ucl draw, not perfect but not bad

Spurs vs city, I don't like team from the same country to face each others but with 4/8 it is quite difficult. Should be fun. But city is arguably the best team in Europe. I don't see spurs going through at all. 

Barca vs united. Two teams with porous defense. With Ole luck anything can happen. 

Ajax vs juve. This is going to be a big test for this young Ajax squad. Juventus is always difficult. 

Pool vs porto. It is very difficult for any team to play against this pool side. You press them, their front 3 is a nightmare to play in transition. You camp in your box. Their two fb are really good providing width.

Slavia Prague v Chelsea.

Napoli v Arsenal

Arsenal will play at home first now as us and them cannot both play at home at the same time.

In the second semi-final, the winners of Slavia Prague v Chelsea will play...

The winners of Benfica v Eintracht Frankfurt

Couldn't have hand picked a better route to the final. If we play with the same swagger and focus as we did against Kiev we should be comfortably be better than our opponents in the next two rounds.

Hopefully Napoli and Arse take a lot out of each other and hopefully Napoli advances. I really don't want to face Arse in the final and potentially lose to them.

But what do Chelsea need to know about Slavia Prague?

Key player

Miroslav Stoch: Slavia Prague’s top-scorer this season with 13 goals, Stoch used to play for Chelsea from 2006 to 2010. He only made four appearances before joining Fenerbache, where he was until 2017. The Slovakian international, who has played 57 times for his country, won the FIFA Puskas Award in 2012 for best goal and will be a threat up front alongside Milan Skoda for the Czech side.

 

Europa League record 

Slavia Prague last reached this stage of the competition in 2000, where they lost to fellow quarter-finalists Villarreal. The club’s best European performance was reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup in 1996, where they lost to Bordeaux, and last season they were knocked out of the Europa League in the group stages. They stunned Sevilla in the last-16, winning 6-5 on aggregate, after drama in extra-time.

Domestic form

Slavia Prague are top of the Czech First Division, and are six points clear of second placed Viktoria Plzen, having won all but four of their 24 games. They’re also in the quarter-finals of the Czech Cup, playing MFK Karvina on April 2.

If Bayern and Dortmund, the best two teams in the Bundesliga got smashed in the CL by EPL teams I don’t see why we would have any trouble.

You're comparing us to Spurs AND Liverpool?

Point is that the quality of the Bundesliga isn’t all that great. The fact that I’m worried more about Benfica speaks volumes.

We probably won’t smash Frankfurt but we should beat them comfortably if we ever meet.
