Can Chelsea put one foot into the Europa League final as they travel to take on tricky German side Eintracht Frankfurt? Live Soccer TV's match preview provides match facts, teams news, and global broadcast listings for Eintracht Frankfurt vs Chelsea.

Current form: Eintracht vs Chelsea

With Arsenal falling by the wayside, Chelsea are inching ever so closer to sealing their grip on a top four spot. Although the Blues failed to pick up all three points in their crunch clash against Manchester United last weekend, and are still winless in their last three Premier League games, their London rivals are on a three game losing streak in the league. That has helped Maurizio Sarri's men inch two points clear and even move within two points of third-placed Tottenham with just two games to go in the season. Chelsea's last two league games are against Watford and Leicester - certainly both winnable - but both come sandwiched between clashes against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, and that's a competition that clearly Sarri wants to win this season.

How he manages his squad over the next few weeks will be vital, as winning it will secure a spot in the Champions League next season - regardless of where Chelsea finds themselves in the league table. If they don't win it, then, naturally, a top four berth is that much more vital, so how they fare in these two semi's will ultimately decide where Chelsea are playing in the upcoming campaign.

As for Eintracht Frankfurt, domestically, Adi Hutter's side are in a great position to seal a spot in the Champions League next term. They find themselves in a very impressive fourth spot, despite also failing to win their last three Bundesliga games but certainly winning the Europa League would be the crowining achievement on what has been a very strong season for Frankfurt.

How they got here: Eintracht Frankfurt vs Chelsea

No one expected Eintracht Frankfurt to get this far, but they have. In fact, they weren't even supposed to be in the Europa League after finishing eighth in the Bundesliga, but under Niko Kovac last season, they shocked German football by beating Bayern in the DFB-Pokal and thus earned a ticket to the tournament.

Die Adler have been simply impressive throughout. They finished the group stages with a perfect record - 18 points out of 18 - scoring 17 goals, conceding just five, and beating Lazio and Marseille along the way. In the round of 32, they easily strolled past Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar 6-3 on aggregate, and despite being pitted against tougher opposition in the form of Inter in the round of 16, they eventually managed to see off the Nerazzurri thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

A 4-2 defeat to Benfica in the first leg wasn't enough to keep them out of the semi-finals, as Frankfurt came roaring back to win the second leg 2-0 and dump the Portuguese champions out on away goals. It's their strong home record - they have yet to lose a Europa League game on home turf this season - that will really make Chelsea quite wary, despite the Blues enjoying a strong performance so far in the Europa League this term on the road.

Chelsea, meanwhile, cruised through the group stages, and were quite close to earning a perfect six wins out of six had they not been halted on matchday six by a shock two-all draw with Eastern European outfit Vidi. Then, in the knock-out rounds, they faced Dynamo Kiev in the round of 32, where they easily brushed them aside 8-0 on aggregate, followed by Swedish side Malmo in the round of 16 (5-1 on aggregate).

However, in the quarter-finals, they surprisingly found things a bit trickier than expected against Czech outfit Slavia Praha. Marcos Alonso's goal was enough to decide the away leg, but the Czechs were desperate to not go down without a fight, and caused quite a stir at Stamford Bridge as they netted three goals to push the Blues all the way to the end. Nonetheless, Sarri's side prevailed thanks to a hard-fought 4-3 victory (5-3 on aggregate) to set up their upcoming show-down with Eintracht, who have proven so far to be a very tricky opponent and are shaping up to be a real dark horse in this competition.
