Callum Hudson-Odol claimed his third Europa League goal of the season so far as Chelsea bested Dynamo Kiev for the last 16 first leg match, and has since moved forward into the quarter finals. The Pedro opened the scoring from close range as he barrelled after Olivier Giroud.
Williams claimed a second goal as Chelsea’s dominance continued after drilling home from 25 yards. Teenager Hudson-Odol added their third goal, putting Chelsea in charge of the tie. Dynamo Kiev, who has never won a game in any of their 15 visits to Britain, did not manage to claim a single goal, nor did they get a shot on target.
Hudson-Odol has had a good season in the Europa League, netting against PAOK Salanokia in the group stage, as well as at home to Malmo in the last round. The 28 year old player put in a transfer request in January for Bayern Munich, although the club rejected it.
The Blues won the 2013 Europa League will need to win the tournament in order to qualify for next season’s Champions League as they are currently sitting at sixth place in the Premier League. Maurizio Sarri has also made six changes, but has still put forward a strong team, with N’Golo Kante, Eden Hazard, and Gonzalo Higuain on the beach in case of any emergencies. Pedro’s opener was followed by a miss for a chance to double the lead as he fired into the keeper after a cross from David Zappacosta.
