Chelsea fear injuries on Dynamo Kiev's horror pitch

Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri have their eyes on the prize

Chelsea go into the game with a 3-0 lead from the first leg and are 90 minutes from reaching the quarter-finals.

But Chelsea may find tonight's game tougher due to the playing conditions at the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex.

Dealing with the pitch will be a concern for the team, though, with Sarri saying the pitch conditions could be risky to his players. "It's really very unsafe for injuries".

"It is a disaster". "The pitch is not good". It's really risky to play any football here in this moment, and I think it's really very unsafe for injuries. "It is very very risky". So we have to accept the situation. There isn't another solution. "There isn't another solution, but I can not understand why Uefa are so, so (concerned) about having to present the player list at a certain minute, but then we have to play in such a bad pitch".

But the Warriors scored the last four points of the period to extend the lead to 85-78 entering the fourth. "But that's OK. There is, however, a 6-foot-11, 270-pound wild card in the equation that wasn't around for the West finals previous year .

"But then we have to play on such a bad pitch. I think it will be very hard, also, for Dynamo because the pitch is no good". It's a problem for us, but also for our opponents, I think. I know very well for you Hudson-Odoi is the best, for me I want to see all of them at the same level.

"I don't know the reason, probably winter, because I played here two years ago and the pitch was wonderful (but it is now) very, very unsafe". "But now it is very risky". The striker was left out of the traveling squad and Sarri touched upon his absence in the pre-match conference.

For all of the strong start and the slump in the middle, despite doing well in two cups, our objectives for the end of the season remain what they were all the way back in August: qualify for the Champions League by any means necessary. Yesterday in the evening with the doctor we made a decision to leave him at home in order to recover him for the next match.' the Chelsea official website quote him as saying.
