Chelsea have the second leg of their Europa League quarter final against Slavia Prague tonight, but plenty of fans are looking at the other side of the draw and wondering who we might get in the final.
We shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves however. We will play the winner of Benfica and Frankfurt, and those games are by no means a given. Those are two really strong sides, each with a bright young star in Luka Jovic and Joao Felix.
But should we make it past them, we have a potential dream final against Napoli in Baku. Not only are the team of Maradona a suitably sized European giant to make us feel like we’re really competing for something, we also have this excellent shared history with them now.
Jorginho and Sarri arrived from Naples this summer to take over at Chelsea – how much would they love to face off against their old team – and hopefully win? Let’s not forget the Napoli manager is also a former Chelsea boss, and that we played them in a legendary game on our way to the 2012 title.
They have also already shown against Arsenal in the first leg that they are a flawed team, and one we can beat.
It would make the perfect conclusion to the Sarri project’s first (and possibly only) season in English football.
