The history of confrontation
Chelsea and Dynamo have crossed before. In the group stage of the Champions League 15/16 meeting in London ended with a victory of owners 2:1, and the Kiev team played in a goalless draw. In the end, both teams reached the playoffs of the tournament.
Kiev “Dynamo” is quite often met with the English clubs 26 matches. One of the latest successes in the games with the British – striking match against Everton, in which the people of Kiev received the largest successful victory over the English team – 5:2. This meeting was the most productive in the entire history of confrontations with the British.
Over the weekend, “Dynamo” done away with Desna, winning 2:1. With the same score in the Derby of West London have won “Chelsea” – also on departure wards Surry beat Fulham.
Dynamo will not help Artem Besedin, Mikel Duelund, Benjamin, Verbic, Fran Sol, Vladislav Supryaga, Joseph, Pivaric, Th, Th, Vitor Bueno.
But in “Chelsea”, as assured the head coach Maurizio Sarri, no one is injured.
The word trainers
“We have no problems with injuries and illnesses, but the players are a bit tired. Therefore, in the match of Europa League we will make a small rotation. However, this does not mean that we prefer to fight for getting into the top four in the Premier League. The Europa League is not a less important goal for us. As for the Dynamo, that is a very good young team with very quick wingers who are especially dangerous on the counterattack. I can guarantee we will not, and to go further, you will have to show all that we can,” – said the chief coach of “Chelsea” Maurizio Sarri.
“The scheme will not change, instead of one striker will come out the other. Instead of the franc will be released Rusin. As for the other options [replace Verbicha], we will see tomorrow. These games [against Chelsea] will consist of two matches. Before each match, as I said against Olympiacos 50-50,” said the coach of Kiev Alexander Khatskevich.
Forecast for the match
Chelsea on the moral upswing after a difficult period, so expect from the leader dominance in his field. “Dynamo” remains on the defensive and wait for mistakes, which will definitely be the game Fulham showed that. In this case, an away goal will be an important achievement, but who will score if there is no main striker and the main striker?
In our opinion, the Dynamo, even with the bench injured players will be able to show character. 1:0 or 2:1 in favor of the “aristocrats” would be a good result for the white-Blues away.
