Chelsea advanced through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League with an 8-0 aggregate victory over Dynamo Kiev, and Maurizio Sarri has been discussing his side’s potential opponents in the next round.

The Blues comprehensively advanced to the final eight of the competition and will be determined to go all the way in their hunt for silverware.

Sarri spoke about who he would like to avoid in the quarter-finals and explained that he would prefer to play Napoli in the final, rather than in the next round.

His former side advanced beyond Red Bull Salzburg in the round of 16 despite the Austrian club coming out on top with a 3-1 win in the second leg. Napoli advanced with the aggregate scoreline 4-3 in their favour.

The draw for the quarter-finals will take place on Friday, with Chelsea undoubtedly eager to discover who they will take on.
