Chelsea broke with recent tradition and trained at the stadium on the eve of the last-16 tie, which they lead 3-0 after the first leg, with Sarri and his coaching staff making clear their displeasure at the condition of the turf as they inspected areas of the pitch.

"Jorginho is very important for us, a very good player".
"Of course, I don't want to stay here talking about this situation, but when they do that, we don't feel good inside the pitch. It's really very unsafe for injuries", Sarri told reporters. It's really risky to play any football here in this moment, and I think it's really very unsafe for injuries.

There isn't another solution, but I can not understand why Uefa haven't really given much attention to everything, such as the player list.
"The current issues with the pitch are mainly aesthetic and do not present the risks of playability".
