Die Rotten came out 2-1 victors at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last Wednesday and are nearly certain of getting another victory here at odds of (1.25) with NairaBet which will be enough to see them qualify for the semifinals at (1.03).

Last Saturday, they sealed a sixth straight Bundesliga title after a 4-1 win over Augsburg, during which defender Jerome Boateng suffered a bruised foot.

Despite being on Chelsea's books for nearly three years, Kenedy has only started five Premier League matches, with only one of those within the last two years. "They [Sevilla] did brilliantly in Manchester and we know we have to perform".

"They will certainly go on the offensive", Heynckes said. Everyone is talking about the semis, but if we win, then we can talk about that.

Their bid to complete an unlikely comeback will be boosted by the return of Banega, who missed the home leg through suspension.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich will host Sevilla in an intriguing contest on Wednesday after the first leg in Spain which Bayern Munich won by 2-1.

While Sevilla started off very strong in the first-leg match, surprising Bayern with a spirited start paying off in an early goal, they were not able to keep up that endurance and the momentum slowly fizzled out in the second half.

Sevilla are winless in their four games since winning at Old Trafford and crashed to a 4-0 league defeat at Celta Vigo on Saturday.

"The match lasts 90 minutes, so it's important that we are in it for the whole 90 minutes", the Italian told the media ahead of Wednesday's game.

However, David Alaba and midfielder Arturo Vidal have been ruled out of the fixture. Should Sevilla kill off the supply line between the spaces, they might stay in the match for longer periods, giving their attacking men the chance to grab a foothold in the game. They have also shown that their poor form in La Liga has no bearing whatsoever in Europe, and should again be a hard side to break down. It's therefore (1.80) for both teams to score in this game. "We aren't going to go our and play for a 0-0 draw, we want to try and win what we know will be a demanding game".
