Maurizio Sarri says Slavia Prague are a “dangerous” side as Chelsea prepare for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
Slavia Prague’s last-minute winner in extra-time against Sevilla in a 4-3 thriller put them into the Europa League quarter-finals for the first time.
“This a very dangerous match for us,” said Sarri. “They have scored six in two matches against Seville, they are dangerous.
“We need to be very compact and to defend really well. On crosses they can attack with five or six players. It’s not easy for us.
