After disposing Tottenham in the quarter finals, Basel was drawn to face another English side, Chelsea. Will they continue their good run against English opposition? Fenerbah├že v Benfica Basel v Chelsea

ehhh i miss the days of UEFA Cup and Champions League. What the H is Europa League anyway. They just had to go make changes to confuse everything. I mean why mess with a good thing?

Before the Champions League and Europa League, we have the Europe Cup, Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup. The tournament was very interesting then. But since they reformatted the game and with the success of Champions League, Europa League has become a poor cousin.

ooh man i remember when i was young. We had the home leagues. Division 1, 2, 3 etc. We had the home Cup. There was International cup (every 4 years) There was European Cup (every 2 years) There was champions league (for the best team/s of each country) There was Uefa Cup (for the 3rd, 4th best team/s, depending on country) Nowadays i dont even know what the h is going on. But i dont expect to since i stopped watching and betting on football/soccer whatever you wanna call it. :)

I think Chelsea are strong favorites to win this competition if they take it seriously until the end.I remember that other English clubs,like Manchester United and Manchester City,showed very little interest in this competition after being relegated to it from the Champions League last year and were both eliminated in the last 16,but with Chelsea things are different,they obviously showed that they want this trophy,which,along with the FA Cup,might save a dull season for them.I admire Basel for their remarkable campaign,but I think Chelsea will reach the final;as for the other match,it's very difficult to predict the other finalist,but I think a final between Chelsea and Benfica would be very attractive.

I think Chelsea is the favorite to beat Basel to play either Fenerbahce or Benfica in the final. Chelsea may not have been always in top form this season but they have got very good players who can win a game by their own skill. But I may be wrong as any team that could play in an Europeon semi-final is certainly not a weak team. Basel proved that last season by beating Manchester United and this season, Newcastle.

Chelsea will definitely be the favourite to go through but then so were Man Utd during last season group stage. As for the other semi final, I fancy Benfica to emerge triumph.

I agree that many people here ain't interested in soccer. This is rather surprising as soccer is a very popular sports. My guess is that many users are from countries like USA and Canada where soccer is not a very popular game.
