Coach Chelsea Maurizio Sarri spoke about a crushing victory over the Dynamo in the return match of 1/8 final of the Europa League
According to the Italian specialist, the important point of the match was the fastest goal scored by his team who broke all the hopes of the opponent.
The Chelsea boss said that the main reason for the defeat was that the Dynamo was not ready physically.
“We played well. First of all, we’ve got a great start to the match, which is what we expected. We tried to score a quick goal. We did it, and it broke all the plans of the opponent and put him in a very difficult position. In the second half we slowed down a little, but in General I can say that I am pleased with the play of his team.
Dinamo is the weakest opponent, with whom I met? No, you are not right. Such a large score suggests that the opponent was not quite ready physically. It has been seen. Two years ago I played against a stronger Dynamo. But the current team is very young, and I’m sure she has a great future”, — quotes the words of Surry dynamo.kiev.ua.
Recall that Dynamo, who had to win back three goals after the first match, in the opening stages of the second meeting put paid to their chances of reaching the quarter-finals. In the fifth minute Willian took a corner, and Olivier Giroud after discount easily sent the ball into the goal. Now Kiev residents have had to score five, which looked fantastic.
It seems that conceding the first goal that stunned the hosts, who later could not keep the ball. Chelsea calmly controlled the course of the game, threatening at the gates of the Dynamo, if it is the Londoners needed to win.
After an hour Marcos Alonso’s accurate pass, who cut off the defense of Kiev, found in the penalty Giroud, who doubled the advantage for his team and in fact completely outlined the outcome of this confrontation. However, Chelsea did not stop – and Alonso finished off the hosts. The Spanish defender, being alone surrounded by Dynamo players in the penalty area, tapped in a cross from the right flank. And the chances of Kiev to remember is that offside goal by Denis Garmash, is forced to take a position a striker because of staffing problems, and a free kick by Victor Tsygankov, spoiled strike the wall.
In the second half, the Dynamo came out focused and had several dangerous attacks. Garmash again sent the ball into the goal from an offside position, yet in one moment of Londoners from the first missed goal saved by the goalkeeper Kepa, and after the front gate. However, this fuse did not last long, and after the first fifteen minutes of the second half Giroud fully cooled the ardor of the hosts, having issued het-trik. Willian made a pitch at the head of a Frenchman, who had only to put the ball in the net. After a couple of minutes, Alonso could increase the expense and disgrace of the Dynamo – the Spaniard took a dangerous shot from a free kick, but Denis Boiko reached out and sent the ball into the crossbar.
On Dinamo to hope was definitely not what. And does not succeed to impose any game. All the same as in the first fight affected the class of Chelsea and the absence of the leaders of the offensive line Kiev Benjamin Verbicha and Fran Sol. A bullet in the second leg put Callum Hudson-Odoi, who converted a one-on-one and made the score 0:5.
