SWISS OPPOSITION IN EUROPA LEAGUE SEMI

Posted on: Fri 12 Apr 2013

Basel will be our opponents in the semi-final of the Europa League. The first leg is away.

The draw in Switzerland on Friday morning paired us with the team that knocked out Tottenham in the previous round. It will be the first meeting between Chelsea and Basel. Our other competitive tie against Swiss opposition was in the UEFA Cup in 2000 when we played St Gallen.  

The game in Switzerland will be on Thursday 25 April with the match at Stamford Bridge on Thursday 2 May.

In the other semi-final Fenerbahçe were drawn against Benfica with the first leg in Turkey.
