Our football match prediction:
Young Boys will have a mountain to climb against Dynamo Kiev in the second leg of the Champions League third qualifying round. The Swiss side need to overcome a two-goal deficit in the tie against Aleksandr Khatskevych’s men and that is easier said than done. Anyhow, we predict that Young Boys will adopt an attack-minded approach in the return leg and we would not be surprised if Adolf Hutter’s men find the net in Wednesday’s football match. Dynamo Kiev recorded a 3-1 win over Young Boys in the first leg, with Andriy Yarmolenko once again proving his worth. The former Arsenal target has been in a fine form at the start of the season and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. However, seeing that Young Boys are tough to beat at home, share of spoils appears on the horizon in this one.
Highligted 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.
Highlighted Team (Dynamo Kyiv):
The most successful football club in Ukraine, Dynamo Kyiv has not been relegated to a lower division since its inception in 1927. First founded as a part of the Soviet Dynamo Sports Society, Dynamo Kyiv became a member of the Ukrainian Premier League after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Over the course of its rich history, Dynamo Kyiv has won the total of 28 national titles, 13 of which came during the Soviet era. In addition, Dynamo Kyiv won 20 national cup competitions, while it also grabbed 3 major continental trophies, including two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups. Oleh Blokhin remains to this date the most successful player of the Ukrainian giants with his 266 goals scored for the Kyiv club. However, current Ukraine national team head coach Andriy Shevchenko is arguably the most recognisable player in Dynamo Kyiv history. Former Milan and Chelsea star scored the total of 124 goal during his two stints with the Ukrainian club.
