Possesion, passes, corner kicks, shots on and off goal were all dominated by Chelsea, but in the dying stages of the game Eintracht missed the chance to seize on an error by Ngolo Kante and ease their task in London.

Worth mentioning: Chelsea are undefeated in their last five outings and all but secured top 4 finish in the Premier League, after convincing 3:0 win over Watford in the weekend. The Blues scored at least two goals in each of their last five games at Stamford Bridge and recorded three clean sheets in the process. The only side to win their visit there in 2019 was Manchester United who triumphed in mid-February.
Eintracht Frankfurt were handed a heavy 6:1 defeat on Sunday by Bayer Leverkusen in the BundesLiga and that match marked the fourth consecutive game where the German side is unable to score more than one goal. It comes as no surprise that Eintracht registered three draws and did not win any of these. The team scored in their last eight away games, with each of the last four witnessing goals at both ends.
