The winners will play either Inter Milan or Shalke04 in the semi’s with the first leg away on 26th April with the home leg on Wednesday 4th May.
It is a repeat of the 2008 Final, in which we were defeated on penalties in Moscow, the only time we have met in European competition previously. I’m sure many Chelsea supporters are looking forward to putting the ghost of Moscow to bed and hopefully progressing through to Wembley.
