Slavia Prague v Chelsea
Chelsea will go looking to add to their brilliant away record in the Europa League when they head to Slavia Prague on Thursday.
After outclassing West Ham 2-0 on Monday, Maurizio Sarri is again likely to rotate but his squad players have done him proud on the road in this competition, winning four of their five games.
Slavia have recorded home wins against Bordeaux and Zenit St Petersburg this season but their most impressive performance came in the last 16 where they beat Sevilla in extra-time to reach this stage of the competition for the first time since 2000, when it was still the UEFA Cup.
The Cervenobili have not lost a competitive game at the Sinobo Stadium since August and, eight points clear at the top of the Czech Liga standings, can afford extra focus on this tournament.
Former Chelsea youngster Miroslav Stoch will have extra motivation to perform after failing to make the grade at Stamford Bridge and is in good form, having provided 12 goals and 10 assists in the league this season.
The Blues have the competition's top scorer, Olivier Giroud, who has netted nine goals, including in his last four European games. After only a brief cameo against West Ham, he is sure to get a start in the City of a Hundred Spires, as should the likes of Willian, Ross Barkley and Andreas Christensen.
This could be a tight game, with those three conceded against Sevilla the only goals Slavia have let in at home in this season's event. However, Chelsea have the greater quality and should take a lead back to the Bridge.
