Match Preview

PMB: Dynamo Kiev v Chelsea - the numbers


The Blues travel to Ukraine today and here club statistician Paul Dutton begins our preview of the Europa League round of 16 second leg...

Chelsea in Numbers

Chelsea have won 11 of the 15 previous UEFA ties after a first-leg victory at home, most recently in the 2012/13 Europa League match against Rubin Kazan. We have prevailed all three times when the score has been 3-0. The last team to eliminate Chelsea after we had won the first leg at Stamford Bridge were Liverpool on penalties in the 2006/07 Champions League semi-finals (1-0 home, 0-1 away).

The Blues are 12 games unbeaten in the Europa League. Our 2-2 draw at MOL Vidi on matchday six ended a run of eight successive wins. Our last defeat in the competition was 2-3 at Rubin Kazan in the 2013 quarter-final second leg after we won 3-1 at the Bridge.

Chelsea have scored more direct free-kick goals than any other team in the Europa League this season (four). Included is Willian's versus Dynamo which can be enjoyed again in this video...

WORLDIES: Willian's Free-Kick🚀


Ruben Loftus-Cheek is one of only two players to have scored a hat-trick in this season’s Europa League. The other is Salzburg’s Takumi Minamino.
