For Chelsea, winning the UEFA Europa League may be their only chance to be represented in the Champions League next year. The league has not been around for months. The team from Stamford Bridge was even passed through to sixth place, after a long time third place was taken firmly by the Londoners. It will probably come to the showdown between Naples, Arsenal London and Chelsea. The odds are therefore at about one in three, whether next year champagne or seltzer will be drunk, should the goal not be achieved through national competition.
Football Betting Prediction Dynamo Kiev vs Chelsea
The blues are very accommodating that they can access the entire squad. Kiev, on the other hand, has to give up the suspended Vitaliy Buyalskiy. Although the decision on progress has probably already been made, Kiev should not be underestimated. In the Europa League group stage, the men of Aleksandr Khatskevich prevail sovereignly as group first. In addition, recently showed the Champions League appearances of Ajax Amsterdam, Manchester United and Juventus that a comfortable cushion from the first leg in the absence of motivation can quickly dissipate. The starting position remains the same as before the first leg. Chelsea are the much better team and should be able to win even in the second leg “despite” comfortable leadership. At Dynamo Kyiv vs Chelsea our guess is that the Sarri-Elf will not let the butter go away in the return leg either.
Dynamo Kiev stands for the national competition as perhaps no other team from the Premjer League. With a total of 15 championship titles, they are the record champions of Ukraine as record champions. In recent years, however, it was not so good, so often focused only on the Europa League, while Shakhtar Donetsk increasingly gained more and more international prestige. In the current table, the above situation is reflected again. After 21 match days, Donetsk already has a comfortable seven-point lead. For years, the offensive has always been the figurehead of the men from the capital of Ukraine. This year, however, with 38 goals scored at this time of the season, it is an unusually low mark on the credit side.
The Khatskevich-Elf could be encouraged by the strong home-strength this season too. From eleven league matches 27 counters were saved. With only three goals Kyiv is here even the best defense. Since the Londoners do not have their very own defensive line, Dynamo Kiev against Chelsea could even predict a “under 2.5 goals” bet. Kiev will miss the midfielder Buyalski. After his yellow card in the first leg he is now damned to watch. Whenever he was allowed to go over the full 90 minutes, Kiev lost no game. He also scored twice in the last six games.
Expected formation of Dynamo Kiev:
➔ Boyko – Mykolenko, Shabanov, Burda, Kedziora – Sydorchuk, Shepelev -Verbic, Shaparenko, Tsygankov – Rusyn

It is an open secret that Maurizio Sarri no longer enjoys the full backing of the club. Celebrated at the beginning of the season as a new guarantor of success, he is now more and more in the criticism. Not a few experts accuse him of not reaching the team anymore. The constantly re-traded names that are supposed to replace him do the rest not to improve the situation in the blues. The worse the results were in the past, the more defensive Sarri let his team go to work. He let his men a few months ago still act with an offensive 4-3-3, especially in the backward movement, especially against better teams, rear one or the other time a chain of 5 is reared. It’s only too understandable that this does not really please the followers of the blues, as their predecessor Antonio Conte was scrapped because of his defensive style of play.
In the first leg against Kiev proved Sarris offensive orientation as just the right move. In the once familiar 4-3-3 offensive power was more than noticeable. Chelsea dominated the game with 8: 0 on goal. The 3: 0 went perfectly well even at this altitude. At no time did the neutral spectator feel that this match could be on the edge. It was only a matter of time before the 1-0 would fall. In the Premier League, however, this dominance is missing. It was not until recently when it was thought that the crisis was over and a race to catch up could only begin with a meager 1-1 draw against the Wolves. A glance at the statistics shows that Chelsea is increasingly losing its offensive power at the national level. With only 50 hits scored, the Blues scored the least goals of the Big-Six. Nevertheless, only three points are missing in fourth place and even a failure in the Europa League would not be equivalent to the abandonment of the Champions League in the coming season. Although there is some talk against the Londoners, in the match between Dynamo Kyiv and Chelsea, given the odds, a tip on the favorites is still the better option. Kiev has to come and if Chelsea can do it, then it’s the fast switching game.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
➔ Arrizabalaga – Zappacosta, Rüdiger, Christensen, Alonso – Kanté, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek – Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Willian
