Chelsea head to the Kiev Olympic Stadium to face Dynamo Kiev in the second round clash of the Europa League.
The London side are clear favourites having won their first game at home 3-0.
This means an away goal would leave Kiev needing to score five goals to make it through and knock Chelsea out of the competition.
Although this should be game Chelsea can win boss Maurizio Sarri has expressed unhappiness with the pitch at Kiev’s NSC Olympic Stadium.
Chelsea, who won last week’s first leg in London 3-0, trained at the stadium on Wednesday.
“The pitch is not good and I think that it’s really dangerous to play any football here. It’s really very dangerous for injuries,” Sarri told reporters.
“I don’t know the reason, probably winter, because I played here two years ago and the pitch was wonderful (but it is now) very, very dangerous.”
The NSC Olympic Stadium hosted last season’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool, which the Spanish side won 3-1.
“I don’t understand why UEFA gives so much attention to everything like the players’ list… and then we have to play in such a bad pitch,” the 60-year-old said. “It’s a problem for us but also for our opponents.”
Striker Gonzalo Higuain has not travelled due to illness while teenage winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is likely to start, the manager added.
