EUFA EUROPA LEAGUE round of 16 2nd leg (RECAP)
DYNAMO 0:5 Chelsea
It is Chelsea who proceed to the next round(QUARTER-fINALS) after they cruised past Dynamo Kyiv with a record UEL win 5:0.
Olivier Giroud scoered a hat-trick while Alonso and Hudson-Odoi were also on-target.
While Giroud has started just two Premier League matches for Chelsea in the past four months, he has relished his outings in the Europa League.
Alertness and anticipation allowed him to steer Willian’s corner past the Kiev keeper for his first goal from around six yards out.
And his movement created the space for him to connect powerfully with Alonso’s cross to thump in a second from the centre of the hosts’ penalty area.
His final effort, a header from another Willian corner, also highlighted his aerial threat as he capitalised on shoddy marking to seal a “perfect” hat-trick, comprising of right-foot, left-foot and headed goals.
Chelsea travels to Everton on Sunday for their next Premier League fixture.
