Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Young Boys and Dynamo Kiev face each other at STADE DE SUISSE in the Group B derby. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Skenderbeu and Partizan, the Ukrainian side shared the spoils with Young Boys in their third group game and they are on the right track to book their place in the knockout stages of the Europa League. Dynamo Kiev would be more than happy with one point from Thursday’s football match and we predict that they will adopt a cautious approach against the Swiss outfit. Young Boys, on the other hand, shared the spoils with each of their rivals in Group B and they sit in second position in the standings ahead of the visit of the Ukrainian. Seeing that Adolf Hutter’s men are tough to beat at home, a close encounter appears on the cards and we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Bern.
Highlighted Player (Miralem Sulejmani):
Miralem Sulejmani is a product of Partizan football academy. The pacey winger played no more than one game in the Serbian Super League for Partizan before joining Heerenveen. The left-footed footballer impressed in the 2007/2008 season with de Superfriezen, with the Serbia international scoring 14 goals in 34 appearances in the Eredivisie. Miralem Sulejmani was on Ajax’s radar during the season and he signed for the famous Dutch club in the summer of 2008 for a fee of €16.25 million. After scoring 29 goals in 103 appearances in the national championship for the Amsterdammers Sulejmani moved to Benfica in 2013, signing a five-year contract with the Primeira Liga side. However, Miralem Sulejmani was struggling to find his best form during his spell with the Portuguese outfit and the club chiefs decided to sell him to Young Boys in June, 2015. Speaking of his international career, Miralem Sujelmani made his Serbia debut on February 6, 2008 in a friendly game against Macedonia in Skopje. He scored his first ever goal for the Eagles on September 12, 2012 in a 6-1 win over Wales (2014 WC qualifiers).
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.
