Our football match prediction:
Besiktas have no other choice but to go all-out attack in Tuesday’s football game against Dynamo Kiev. A win over the Ukrainian team will see the Turks make it to the Champions League last 16, but the hosts should not be underestimated. Dynamo Kiev did well to hold Napoli to a goalless draw at Stadio San Paolo in their last group game and they are certainly capable of making life difficult for Besiktas. The Ukrainians are on a three-match winning run at home in all competitions and we predict that they are going to pick up one point from Tuesday’s match against Senol Gunes’ charges. Besiktas are likely to go all guns blazing at Dynamo Kiev and, taking everything into account, a high-scoring affair appears on the horizon. You should bear in mind that the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in Istanbul earlier in the process.
Highlighted Player (Mykola Morozyuk):
Product of the club, Mycola Morozyuk is the 28-year-old right midfielder, who can effectively be deployed at right back as well. Having begun his career with the Kyiv giants in 2005, Morozyuk struggled to make his mark in the first team and was transferred to Metalurh Donetsk in 2010, the same year he was give his international debut. More than 120 appearances later and loans at the likes of Dnipro and Obolon Kyiv, the Ukrainian midfielder returned home to Dynamo Kyiv in 2015. Mycola Morozyuk was unfortunate to make an immediate impression following his return to the club he began his professional career with as he suffered a serious ligament injury at the beginning of 2016. Ligament issue limited his influence to mere 13 league appearances so far, but the 28-year-old lacks no motivation to finally earn his stripes with the Ukrainian giants.
