Starting tonight at 21 PM, and back to Frankfurt the head. Over 50’000 Fans in the Commerzbank Arena against Chelsea for a hell of a mood and hope for a miracle.

“The Fans are incredible here,” says Gelson Fernandes (32), seen as the undisputed master player and Captain his second spring. “We are very happy. But Chelsea has a strong team, the Londoners are clear favourites.”

But a man can dream Yes. “Of course I believe in the Final and hope for a Swiss duel. With Eintracht against Arsenal, with Granit Xhaka and Stephan Lichtsteiner, against my former team-mates, that would be nice.”

However, Arsenal has a chunk out of the way: Today it is expected to Valencia for the first leg. The Europa League Final, then place on 29. May in Baku.
