The Blues are through to Europa League final after beating Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties during the semi-final second leg clash at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Kepa Arrizabalaga the super goalkeeper.
Both sides played out a 1-1 draw after extra time and 2-2 on aggregate but Chelsea booked a spot in the final after winning 4-3 on penalties.
Maurizio Sarri’s men held a slight advantage over the German outfit after the first leg due to Pedro’s strike, handing the Blues a vital away goal.
Loftus-cheek fired the Blues ahead 28 minutes into the game after Hazard released him on the run and he does the rest with a composed finish.
With 4 minutes into second half, Jovic equalises for the visitors. Jovic wins the knockdown towards Gacinovic before the latter threads a precise throughball behind the Chelsea defence. David Luiz moves into no man’s land and allowed Jovic to raid behind him. The striker holds his composure to slot his strike past Kepa.
After playing out extra time, there was nothing to separate both sides as it all boiled down to penalties. Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga denied Hinteregger and Paciencia to hand in the Blues victory.
