CHE vs DYK Dream11 Team | Dynamo Kiev vs Chelsea Europa League Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News
Chelsea will head to Ukraine to finish the job against Dynamo Kiev in the round of 16 in Europa League. The English team had comfortably won the first leg 3-0 at the Stamford Bridge when Willian, Pedro and Hudson-Odoi found the back of the net. The Blues are in a commanding position and they would like to put Dynamo in their place and move forward in the tournament. Kiev, on the other hand, must be hoping to perform much better at their home.
Dynamo Kiev are in a very delicate position and a win in the tie looks very unlikely for them. The Ukrainians know that even a single away goal by Chelsea would mean that Dynamo will need to score at least 5 goals to overturn the defeat in the first leg. Hence, the team led by Alyaksandr Khatskevich will be better thinking of doing the best they can and see where it takes them. Their rivals, Chelsea, must be keen to get an early away goal and effectively end the contest.
Chelsea are suffering in the domestic campaign this season with them out of the Champions League spots. The London based club sits 6th in the table and they could miss out on Champions League next season if they were to finish out of the top 4. However, Europa League is another way for them to get into the most elite competition in club football. Thus, Sarri might decide to prioritize this competition at some point this season.
The last time Chelsea played in Europa League, they finished as the winners of the competition back in 2012. They will be hoping to have a repeat of the same and a win against Dynamo Kiev would be a step in the right direction for them.
