Chelsea take on Basel on Thursday 2nd May, 2013, with kickoff at 20:05. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV.

A good away win for Chelsea in the first leg has set this game up beautifully for the Blues, and we could even see the rare vision of a Stamford Bridge crowd cheering on Rafa Benitez and his team if the good times continue to roll. Basel have a good side and nothing to lose, but won’t be expected to trouble the reigning European champions unduly.

The final is due to be held in Amsterdam, and while Chelsea may feel like they should be aiming for Wembley instead there is not a chance of seeing them unmotivated this close to such a huge event.
