Chelsea to Play Swiss Side, Basel in the Semi Final of the Europa League.

Chelsea FC were lucky enough to have escaped the other two strong opponent left in the Europa League after the Draws revealed the London team will be traveling to Switzerland for the first leg of their Europa League clash.
However the tie with Basel is arguably not as tough as the other fixture- Benfica against Fernabache- it was the Swiss team that eliminated Tottenham on penalties. Chelsea FC will have to be at their best form if they really want to be in Amsterdam on 15th may for the final match.
Among the positive for The Blues on Friday is the fact that they will have to travel to St Jakob- Park for the first leg, to be followed by the second leg in Stamford Bridge.
With the present form of Raphael Benitez’s team who is going to play Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday, the chances of getting a silver ware at the end of the season will go on to improve the Spaniards’ CV; amidst series of a public outcry from the Chelsea fans over his choice.
Finally FC Basel and Chelsea Football club are not familiar foes; this will likely increase the level of unpredictability, hence could spring a surprise on The Blues. Therefore, completely discarding the Tottenham game’s tape is not among the best options for Raphael Benitez as the outcome of this fixture could help win the hearts of a genuine percentage of the Stamford Bridge faithful.
