Chelsea progressed to the semi-finals of the Europa League after defeating Slavia Prague 4-3 at Stamford Bridge, resulting in a 5-3 aggregate victory.
The Blues played their part in a dramatic second-leg affair but were able to advance after blowing their Czech counterparts away in the first half of the quarter-final clash.
It took just five minutes for Chelsea to open the scoring through Pedro before the Spaniard was again involved as Simon Deli turned into his own net, making it 2-0 to the hosts after nine minutes.
Olivier Giroud netted his 10th Europa League goal of the campaign after 17 minutes before Slavia Prague pulled one back courtesy of Tomas Soucek.
Chelsea were back in the goals again two minutes after their visitors responded, with Pedro netting his second of the evening on the 27th-minute mark.
A second-half fightback from Slavia Prague saw Petr Sevcik score two exceptionally-taken strikes within three minutes of each other, to bring the scoreline to 4-3.
Chelsea will face Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals of the Europa League after they defeated Benfica on away goals following a 4-4 aggregate draw.
Here are our player ratings from the win at Stamford Bridge.
Kepa Arrizabalaga - 5
Didn’t look confident at all between the sticks and conceded three times to lowly oppositions, albeit from two notably impressive efforts.
Cesar Azpilicueta - 6
Azpilicueta was reasonably quiet down the right-hand side but did little wrong as Chelsea secured their place in the semi-finals.
Andreas Christensen - 6
Christensen came in following Antonio Rudiger’s injury against Liverpool. He was solid, if unspectacular, at the back.
David Luiz - 6
Like his centre-back partner, Luiz turned in a rather standard performance against Slavia Prague.
Emerson Palmieri - 6
Another defender, another six… Emerson was by no means poor, but he hardly stood out on the night.
N'Golo Kante - 7
Kante worked typically hard in midfield and aimed to break up play before initiating attacks whenever the opportunities presented themselves.
Mateo Kovacic - 6
Kovacic kept things neat and tidy but failed to grasp his opportunity to impress Maurizio Sarri.
Ross Barkley - 6
Like Kovacic, Barkley hardly did much to convince Sarri of his credentials as a starter in this Chelsea side.
Pedro - 9
Pedro was excellent for Chelsea, notably in the first half, as he orchestrated their attacking moves. He was the Blues’ Man of the Match by a mile.
Olivier Giroud - 8
Led the line expertly and added yet another goal to his tally for this season’s Europa League. He continues to stake a claim for a place in Sarri’s starting line-up.
Eden Hazard - 6
Hazard showed glimpses of quality but was rather subdued against Slavia Prague.
Willian – 6: Came on for Hazard but was similarly ineffective on the wing.
Jorginho – 6: Kept play ticking over but did little to influence proceedings.
Callum Hudson-Odoi – N/A: Was not on for long enough to make an impact.
