Maurizio Sarri: "Our target is to play in Europa League final"

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri shared his expectations before UEL round of 16 second leg match against Dynamo Kyiv after his team won in London 3:0.

It will be a very difficult match. And our main target is not underestimate our opponent. The way they play at home is always dangerous. We have to think about winning the match not just of going throught to the next round. That is what can guarantee our success.

I cann’t know the future but our overall target is to play in Europa League final. It is my massage for players. Tomorrow match is very important and can not relax. That's what Iam thinking about.

Italian coach noticed not the best condition of the pitch at the NSC Olimpiyskiyl.

- It can be connected with the winter that has just finished in Ukraine. I played at this stadium two years ago in September and the pitch was perfect condition.

Brazilian midfielder of Londoners Wiillan who has already practiced at Olimpiyskiy also answered the questions of media representatives:

Of course, the condition of the pitch is not the best. But we donn’t have to concentrate on this, but think about the game. The pitch is the same for everyone. Yes, we will not be able to play football that we love, but we must adapt and do our work and win the match.

We understand that tomorrow match will be very different from the first leg, and if we are not 100% concentrated, we will have problems. Therefore, we must be mentally prepared for this match. I scored two very similar free kick goals, that is my job, and I would like to score tomorrow.

Recall that the match at the "Olympic" will take place on March 14 at 20:00. The fan entrance will be open 2 hours before the start whistle, at 18:00.
