A first-half strike from Pedro gave Chelsea a slim advantage in their Europa League semi-final tie as they were held to a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

Jovic flicks Kostic’s cross in off the far post to give Eintracht the lead in the 23rd minute of the match.

Pedro levelled the scores in the 45th minute to rescue a point for the blues.

Despite dominating the second half, Chelsea were fortunate to survive a handful of late chances, and the tie remains finely poised ahead of the return leg at Stamford Bridge on Thursday, May 9.
