Chelsea will face Frankfurt in the semi-finals of the Europa League after a goal-fest against Slavia Prague.

The Blues were 5-1 up on aggregate by half-time and cruising to a meeting with the Germans after their victory against Benfica, the team Chelsea beat in the 2013 final of this competition.

Pedro, twice, Olivier Giroud and a comedy own-goal from Simon Deli had given them their advantage.

Slavia were a different side after the break and Petr Sevcik’s two long-range goals gave the scoreline a much healthier look as far as they were concerned.

But the Blues had already done enough and despite their second-half stutter they didn’t seriously look like throwing away their lead.
