Chelsea travel to Dynamo Kiev as they continue their quest for a second Europa League title.
The Blues saw off Malmo in the previous round and can now book their place in the quarter-finals if they can get past the team who finished second in last season’s Ukrainian Premier League.
Maurizio Sarri’s team face a fight to finish the top four of the Premier League but will know that the Europa League offers an opportunity to reach the Champions League, as well as earning a major piece of silverware. Follow it live:
