Chelsea are playing against Dynamo Kyiv in the first leg of 1/8-finals of Europa League. Thanks to the improved form of The Blues recently, Chelsea are the favourites of the bookmakers to win the competition. The Blues qualified for this phase of the tournament without much problems with two wins against Malmö with an overall score of 5-1, while Dynamo Kyiv overcame Olympiacos a little harder after a 2-2 draw in Greece and a 1-0 victory in the rematch.
Over the weekend Chelsea warmed up for the fixture on Thursday with a 2-1 win against Fulham. The Blues controlled the game until the 60th minute, but in the last 30 minutes, Kepa Arrizabalaga had to make several saves to guarantee the success of his teammates. Although Chelsea made some mistakes at the end of the game versus The Cottagers, they are still performing convincingly, and it looks like the players are again motivated for success.
Dynamo Kyiv controlled the rematch against Olympiacos, but only in the first half. In the second half, the Greece side dominated, and just the luck helped Dynamo to have a clean sheet. However, the game against Chelsea will be different, and we expect Dynamo to play defensively and to seek a result that will give them a chance for the rematch.
