Chelsea Faces Basel in Europa League Semi-Final; Barcelona to Play Munich in Champions League

The draws for the Europa League and UEFA Champions League semi-finals have been made.

In the Europa League, Chelsea will face FC Basel — the team that knocked Tottenham Hotspur out of the tournament. In the other semi-final, Fenerbahce will play Benfica. The matches will be played on April 25 and May 2, with the winners playing in the Europa League Final in Amsterdam on May 15.

Meanwhile, in the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona will play Bayern Munich in the semi-final, while the other semi features Real Madrid against Borussia Dortmund. At this stage in the tournament, either semi-final would have made a wonderful final. But the way the draw has unfolded, we could see an all-German final. Or perhaps an all-Spanish final.

The Champions League semi-finals will take place on April 23-24 and April 30-May 1. The final will be played at Wembley on May 25.

What do you think Chelsea’s chances are of beating FC Basel in the semi-final? And if they win, which team would you like to see them face in the final — Fenerbahce or Benfica?
