Dynamo Kyiv v Chelsea: Match-facts
• Dynamo drew 2-2 at home to Porto on matchday one before a 2-0 success at Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC last time out.
• The Kyiv club beat Everton 5-2 at home in last season’s Europa League round of 16 (aggregate 6-4). Andriy Yarmolenko, Antunes, Oleh Gusev, Danilo Silva and Łukasz Teodorczyk were all on the scoresheet with Gusev also scoring in the away leg.
• That victory was only Dynamo’s fifth in 24 encounters with English sides and they have yet to win in England (D2 L10).
• Beaten 2-1 at Porto last time out, Chelsea – in their 14th group stage campaign – had started Group G with a 4-0 home victory against Maccabi.
• Oscar scored Chelsea’s goal in a 2-1 defeat at FC Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2012/13 group stage, their only previous trip to Ukraine for a competitive game.
