Valencia will come up against Unai Emery’s Arsenal, while the other semi-final will see Eintracht Frankfurt pitted up against Chelsea.
Valencia will play the first leg at the Emirates Stadium on May 2, before hosting Arsenal at Mestalla a week later on May 9. Neither Valencia nor Arsenal blinked in their second legs ties as they both emerged victorious against Villarreal and Napoli respectively.
In the other semi-final, the first leg will be played in Frankfurt as Chelsea travel to the Commerzbank-Arena to face Luka Jovic’s Eintracht. The Germans overcame a 4-2 first-leg defeat to Benfica in Portugal to advance on away goals, having won 2-0 in the second leg. Chelsea, meanwhile, won 4-3 – 5-3 on aggregate – in a crazy match at Stamford Bridge.
