Chelsea will get back to Champions league action on Tuesday as they travel to Ukraine to face Dynamo kiev. We take a look at key elements that could play out in this game.
The blues won their Match against Aston Villa this weekend as they aimed to kick start their season after a disastrous start to the 2015-2016 season. Mourinho’s side lost their last match against FC Porto and will be looking to take 3 points from this game if they are going to qualify from the group stages with ease. The blues will draw confidence from their disciplined win on Saturday as they lock horns with the Ukrainian side. Jose Mourinho has told fans not to expect his side to win pretty anytime soon as the Portuguese goes back to the basics of drilling his side to be defensively and tactically disciplined before killing off the Opponents on the break. The blues sit third on the Champions league log table with 3 points behind Dynamo Kiev and FC Porto whom both have 4 points.
The Ukraine based side come into this game top of the log table after a victory over Maccaibi Haifa and drawing with Porto. Jose Mourinho’s side will be hoping to shut out Dynamo Kiev’s Star man Yarmolenko whom the blues have scouted. Although the winger recently signed a new contract but he hasn’t ruled out a move to the English Premier League. A game against the EPL champions will be a good opportunity to test himself against one of the best teams in England. Dynamo Kiev will be hoping to return back to winning ways after losing at home to Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 on Friday
