Chelsea win via penalties
Chelsea hosted German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday in the second-leg of their Europa League semi-final.
The reverse fixture saw Pedro cancel out Luka Jovic’s opener, giving Chelsea the away goal advantage heading into the second-leg.
Chelsea then took the lead 28 minutes into the clash at Stamford Bridge through Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
However, the in-form Luka Jovic would once again strike for Frankfurt shortly after the restart.
The 90 minutes finished 1-1, sending the clash to extra time.
Hazard’s Chelsea future
With the tie still all square after 120 minutes, Chelsea’s fate was decided by penalties.
After using up all of his substitutes, Maurizio Sarri was unable to bring on Willy Caballero, so, there was no chance of a repeat of the League Cup final scenario, when Kepa refused to come off.
Luckily for Chelsea, though, their fortunes changed this time around, with Eden Hazard having stepped up to score the winning penalty.
Two penalty shootouts, two different outcomes…

After helping send Chelsea to the final of the Europa League, Hazard was once again asked about his future in London.
The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.
This is Hazard’s latest update on his Chelsea future:
“I don’t think about that.
“I’m only thinking about winning something for this club and this squad.
“If it’s my last game I will try to do everything for this club to win a trophy. In my mind I don’t know yet [if it will be his last game].” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
