Maurizio Sarri’s men fought back from behind to draw 1-1 in Germany last week and return to Stamford Bridge favourites to progress.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek put Chelsea 2-1 in front on aggregate with a well-taken goal after half an hour tonight, only for Jovic to reply just before the hour to make it 2-2 on aggregate.
The match went to penalties, where Kepa saved twice in the shootout and Eden Hazard hit the winner.
Champions League football for next season has already been secured courtesy of a top-four finish in the Premier League, so the pressure is off the Blues ahead of this tie.
