Chelsea vs LOSC Lille
The UEFA Champions League is set to take place at the Stade de France on May 28. After a year in Russia‚ UEFA has switched the venue for this year's competition due to the situation in Ukraine. Lille have been up against Chelsea in the league‚ but will be looking to make up some ground in the semi-finals. If they're to make it all the way to the final‚ they'll need to be at their best in the first leg. Despite the abysmal start to the season‚ Chelsea are among the favourites to progress to the quarter-finals. The team will be carrying a two-goal lead into the second leg‚ but doubts remain over their financial situation and ability to perform well in the semi-finals. The draw will be made on Friday‚ so Chelsea fans can expect to find out their opponents. The draw for the 2021-22 Champions League semi final will take place on Friday‚ 18 March‚ at 12pm CET.

Sevilla vs LOSC Lille
The semi final will feature a game between two sides with contrasting styles.

But Lille's defense will stand firm‚ with Sevilla able to counter their high press. The match will be played at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville‚ which was constructed in 1958. The stadium is capable of seating 43‚880 fans. Both teams are currently in the midst of difficult campaigns. Lille have gone four games without a win‚ scoring just two goals in the process. This has led to pressure on coach Michel Gourvennec‚ as Lille's away record has been horrendous this season. Sevilla‚ however‚ are the team to beat‚ as they recently defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 in the UEFA Cup. The semi finals will be played on April 5 and 6‚ as the fourth round matches will take place at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica and the return leg at Anfield.
