UEFA Europa League

Five-Star Chelsea Run Riot, Napoli Scrape Through

Dynamo Kyiv  0-5 Chelsea (0-8 on agg.)

Chelsea cruised into the next round of the UEFA Europa League after thrashing Dynamo Kiev 5-0 in the second leg.
 
The Blues held a comfortable 3-0 lead from the first leg, and any hopes of a Kiev comeback were dashed after just five minutes in the second leg when Olivier Giroud opened the scoring.
 
Giroud doubled the lead in the 33rd minute before Marcos Alonso extended the lead on the stroke of halftime.
 
The French World Cup winner completed his hat-trick just before the hour mark before Callum Hudson-Odoi rounded off the scoring with 12 minutes remaining.
 
Salzburg 3-1 Napoli (3-4 on agg.)
 
Napoli secured their passage to the last eight of the competition, despite suffering a 3-1 defeat to Salzburg in the second leg.
 
Carlo Ancelotti's men claimed a 3-0 win in the first leg and it didn't take to add to the advantage when Arkadiusz Milik opened the scoring after 14 minutes.
 
The hosts hit back through Moanes Dabour, Fredrik Gulbrandsen and Christoph Leitgeb, but the visitors were able to see out the remaining stages of the game to claim a 4-3 aggregate win.
 
Krasnodar 1-1 Valencia (2-3 on agg)
 
Valencia struck late in the second half to earn themselves a 1-1 draw away to Krasnodar and a spot in the last eight.
 
The LaLiga outfit held 2-1 lead from the leg, although Magomed Suleymanov's 85th minute strike looked to have put them out before Gonçalo Guedes snatched the equaliser in the third minute of time added on to secure a 3-2 aggregate win for Valencia.
