Next Tuesday, 20th of October 2015, the current English champions Chelsea will travel to the Ukraine to measure forces with the country’s title holders Dynamo Kyiv at NSK Olimpiyskiy Stadium for the third match of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Time for Chelsea to return to wins at the UEFA Champions League.

After three consecutive competitive matches without a single win, Chelsea managed once again to secure the three points in their league match against Aston Villa last Saturday at Stamford Bridge. A goal from Diego Costa and another from Alan Hutton in his own net allowed Chelsea to secure their third win in nine league matches so far this season. The London Blues have been miserable at the English Premier League so far and last month’s defeat against FC Porto, for the second UEFA Champions League group stage match, has also placed them in a somewhat delicate situation in the competition. José Mourinho’s men weren’t able to withstand the Portuguese team solid and organized attacking game and ended up leaving Estádio do Dragão with a 2-1 defeat. At the end of the match, Mourinho acknowledged his team’s childish defensive mistakes and congratulated FC Porto for the win. It was a particularly special match for the Portuguese head coach, since it was with the Dragons that he won his first major international trophies as a first team manager. Mourinho received a round of applause from the majority of supporters during the break and he wasn’t able to hide his emotions.

The upcoming Champions League match at Ukraine will surely be far from easy for the London Blues, and although Dynamo might not be the European football powerhouse they used to be during the 1980s, they are still a fairly consistent and organized team that will most certainly give Chelsea a hard night at Kyiv next Tuesday.

The current Ukrainian champions Dynamo Kyiv were enjoying a fantastic winning stint in the country’s domestic league until last Friday, when they were heavily hammered by their biggest rivals Shakhtar Donetsk at home. Sergey Rebrov’s men have now to share the leadership of the Ukrainian league with Lucescu’s Shakhtar, as both sides have the exact same points and the exact same amount of wins, draws and defeats after eleven matches. In their last Champions League match, Dynamo visited Israel and defeated the local Maccabi Tel Aviv by 2-0 with goals from Yarmolenko and the Brazilian journeyman Júnior Moraes.
