Dynamo Kyiv vs Chelsea: Higuain missing in Blues training ahead of Europa League tie

- Dynamo Kyiv vs Chelsea's Europa League second leg round of 16 tie will hold on Thursday evening, March 14

- Chelsea defeated the Ukrainian side 3-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge

- Argentine football star Gonzalo Higuain did not travel with Chelsea and will miss this encounter

Premier League giants Chelsea already have one foot in the 2018/19 Europa League quarterfinal after beating Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv 3-0 in the first leg of their round of 16 clash.

Goals from Pedro, a Willian free-kick and Callum Hudson-Odoi's superb strike sealed the win for the Stamford Bridge landlords in front of their faithfuls.

Dynamo Kiev will host Chelsea in an European encounter for the first time since October 2015 when they drew 0-0 in a Champions League group stage match.

The Kiev based club have progressed from their last two Europa league knockout ties in which they have lost the first leg away from home.

But facing Chelsea who only have the Europa League title to fight for this season, it will be a big mountain for Dynamo to climb.

However, anything can happen as far as the game of football is concerned.

Chelsea now look prepared and ready for the encounter with the photos of their training below.

Meanwhile, Dynamo Kiev striker Fran Sol remains injured meaning the inexperienced Nazariy Rusyn will again lead the line for the Ukrainian side.

Chelsea on the other hand will miss Gonzalo Higuain for this match as the Argentine failed to travel with the Blues due to illness.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Chelsea resulted in losing their star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid as the west London club will reportedly demand £100 million from the Spanish giants.

The 27-year-old was linked to a move to the Bernabeu last season after Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus.
