Former Dream Team invitee Peter Olayinka risks missing Slavia Prague’s trip to London next week for the return leg of their Europa League quarterfinal clash with Chelsea.
The striker is walking a tightrope in order to avoid picking up his third yellow card of the competition which would trigger a suspension.
Olayinka received his first yellow card in the Europa League against Samuel Kalu’s Bordeaux on game week five and was shown a yellow card eleven minutes after his introduction in the seven-goal thriller against Sevilla last month.
He was penalized for a foul on Sevilla’s Sergi Gómez in the 88th minute.
UEFA states that ‘all yellow cards expire on completion of the quarter-finals and they are not carried forward to the semi-finals’.
The 23-year-old has been involved for Slavia Prague in their last seven matches in the Europa League, with five appearances coming off the bench.
