Club Brugge vs Dynamo Kyiv for the Champions League qualifying match on Tuesday at Jan Breydel Stadium.
Club Brugge host Dynamo Kyiv in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round. The Blauw-Zwart started the new season convincingly, and in their last game, Brugge thrashed St. Truiden by a resounding 6-0.
Brugge had an extensive preseason started in June and made seven friendly matches in which they only suffered one defeat. Brugge haven’t played any Champions League qualifiers this season yet, but the team have been in good shape.
The hired David Okereke, who already has three goals in the Jupiler League, seems to be a great player and has been very helpful to the Belgians. There are some doubts regarding the use of Jordi Vanlerberghe.
Dynamo Kyiv has proved they are a quality team, and this season they have won the Ukrainian Super Cup against rivals Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1. Dynamo Kyiv began their preparations for this season also in June, made eight friendlies where they lost two games.
At the beginning of the Ukrainian championship also achieved two wins in the opening rounds, beating Karpaty and Lviv. In fact, the team started the season well, but enter this competition with ineffective records, Kyiv has failed to win any of the last three games away from home.
The team have not played any European games this season, and that may be a less positive factor. However, Ukrainians are a group with many individual values. Dynamo has little or no injury concerns right now, and the coach can put his best possible eleven.
Both teams had a good start to the season, so I think the home factor is essential. The prediction for Brugge’s win is my guess.
