Dynamo Kiev vs Chelsea
Thursday 15th March 2019, Olimpiyskiy National Sport Complex
UEFA Europa League – Round of 16
Live on BT Sport 3 – Kick-Off: 17:55 GMT
Chelsea will travel to Ukraine for the second leg of their UEFA Europa League tie with Dynamo Kiev.
The visitors ran out winners in the first leg at Stamford Bridge in a 3-0 win. Goals from Pedro, Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi were the difference. The Ukrainian outfit will hope for a much better showing if they are to miraculously pull this one back – as they failed to have a single shot on target in London.
Dynamo Kiev are under dogs for this encounter despite having home advantage and SkyBet have priced them at 5/2. Dynamo have a very tough contest ahead of them and one that seems a little too hard to conquer. However, their home form has been rather emphatic in their last five matches. They have won four of those with ease.
One man hoping to increase his campaign tally and see his sides defeat the odds is attacker Benjamin Verbic. The striker is his sides top goal scorer in the competition with three goals and he is priced at 16/5 to score anytime.
Chelsea are favourites for this match and are priced at a tempting 11/10. Maurizio Sarri’s side enter this match in good form with three wins in their last four matches. Last time out, they had three wingers score and Willian was a stand-out performer. The Brazilian is likely to start on Thursday and is price boosted at 9/1 to score from outside the area.
They have been in top form in this competition also and three of their last four Europa League competitions have seen them score 3 or more without reply. They are 5/2 to win to nil.
The referee for this match will be Tobias Steiler. There was very little trouble in the last match between these two. There was only 20+ booking points awarded. However, with it being the second-leg there is more on the line and it is likely to see more cards.
Dynamo Kiev vs Chelsea will be televised live in the UK on BT Sport 3 with kick-off at 17:55 GMT.
