THE PREDICTION

Chelsea face arguably their biggest test in the competition so far as they make the trip to Frankfurt. Chelsea have won 14 of their last 15 Europa League matches and many of those matches saw them field a weakened team. They will field a strong side here and they can come away with at least a draw.
