Already in the 2012/13 season, Chelsea FC won the UEFA Europa League after beating the memorable overall victory in the Champions League in Munich against Bayern (2012). Six years later, the chance with respect to the 16 remaining teams in the second round seems to be big again. And not only that, it is in all likelihood the only chance how the reigning FA Cup winner can save the season. After all, the Europa League winner beckons the ticket for the premier class, which was last for league rivals Manchester United the springboard in the most important international competition for European club teams.
Today’s Betting Prediction Chelsea vs Dynamo Kiev
The Blues are very pleased that Dynamo Kiev have lost their ticket to a blatant outsider who, although he has made it to the semi-finals of this competition in 2008/09, has to dispense with key players at Stamford Bridge in London in droves. Thus Chelsea vs. Dynamo Kiev are not only clearly in favor of a home win for Maurizio Sarri’s team, but the sixth in the Premier League are also good at conceding a clean sheet, which is the starting point for the return leg in a week in the Ukraine would be extremely comfortable. At least, against Chelsea against Dynamo Kiev, the tip for Aleksandr Khatskevich’s team to score an away goal is not considered too likely.
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
As a major misunderstanding was the tenure of former Italian coach Antonio Conte at the Blues, although the eccentric predecessor of Maurizio Sarri won the Premier League in the first year and said goodbye last summer with the FA Cup from London. Achievements that are longing for these days, as Chelsea have swum their pelts practically everywhere in recent weeks: defeat in the League Cup final including the refusal to replace keeper Kepa, who has caused quite a stir in the international press. In the Premier League a 0: 6 swatter at Manchester City and the FA Cup home against Manchester United (0: 2). As if that were not enough, there are also the UEFA’s investigations, which want to lock the Londoners for two transfer periods. Although the Blues have caught up with a major 2-0 win over Tottenham again and brought in the past English week, after all, the maximum yield of six points in the table is currently only sixth place to book, bringing the premier class to the second Time would be missed in series.

These are groundbreaking weeks for the Blues, who on the one hand need to make at least 10 more points at national level from the matches against the underdogs Wolverhampton, Everton, Cardiff and West Ham, but they are also the back door in the premier class over the Europe League have to keep open. All the more does the Blues have a great record in the cards: Chelsea have won seven of the eight matches so far in this year’s Europa League season (one draw), winning in all four home games. Including the last appearance in this competition, which culminated in the title win six years ago, Londoners have been unbeaten in eleven Europa League games and have never lost a home game since the competition was launched (seven wins, one draw). Good conditions, especially since the two previous home games against teams from Ukraine were won: Both but each with goals, this time the deflated goalkeeper Kepa is to defeat. Already against Fulham the Spaniard held the shaky 2-1 win confidently. What also plays a role in Chelsea’s prediction against Dynamo Kiev is the fact that Maurizio Sarri can make the most of all and that all the players are fit, which is something that the guests from Ukraine can not claim.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
Kepa – Alonso – Luiz – Rudiger – Azpilicueta – Kanté – Kovacic – Jorginho – Hazard – Pedro – Higuaín

Dynamo Kiev – Statistics & Current Form
With a total of 15 league titles in Ukrainian premier league Dynamo Kyiv is the country’s record champion, but in recent years the white and blue have become increasingly outnumbered by Shakhtar Donetsk. Recently, there were again only two runner-ups in a row for the flagship of Ukraine, which could win at least twice the European Cup Winners’ Cup. At the moment, however, coach Aleksandr Khatskevich’s footballers have other worries: in the current table, after only 20 matches played, only second place is left – seven points behind Donetsk. Only 14 games were won – also because Kiev was unusually weak in the offensive. Although there was a 5-0 home win over Sorja Luhansk in the first league game of the new year, too rarely Dynamo but just against the supposedly small of the league at least a double succeeded.
“The odds are always 50:50 before the match.” – Aleksandr Khatskevich on the website of the association
This yield is reinforced by the fact that in the storm in rows, the players are missing. Mikkel Duelung is missing after ankle injury at least the whole of March. Artem Biesiedin may not be available again until next season following an operation on his Achilles tendon, which also applies to the Spaniard Fran Sol, who was brought in the winter to compensate for the aforementioned deficits. The injured at the weekend in a 2-1 win at Desna shoulder and needs the latest predictions, an operation that would also seal the end of the season. As if that were not enough, Benjamin Verbic picked up a momentous caution against Olympiacos Piraeus in the semifinals and must also be replaced on the left wing. Although ended with a 2-1 victory at Stade Rennes on the third matchday of the preliminary round just a negative series of six away games in series in the Europa League without victory (four draws, two defeats), overall speaks in light of the injury woes at Chelsea against Dynamo Kiev for a tip on the next away win of Ukrainians, let alone an away goal, very little.
Expected formation of Dynamo Kiev:
Bojko – Mykolenko – Shabanov – Burda – Kedziora – Buysalskyy – Shepelev – Sharapenko – Sidcley – Tsyhankov – Supriaha
