Another of the games that is very tight and hard to call is the Dynamo Kyiv against Fiorentina match up. Fiorentina equalised in the third minute of injury time in the first leg and it was a tough blow to a Kyiv team that had defended brilliantly after taking an early lead. Serge Rebrov's team created enough chances to be well ahead by the time Fiorentina equalised but they didnt take the, Lens and Yarmalenko are the key men for Kyiv and if they play well on Thursday and take their chances then there is every chance that the Ukrainians will be in the semi final of the competiton.
Fiorentina rested alot of their starters on Monday night to give themselves the best possible chance of winning this game. Mohamad Salah and Mario Gomez are going to have to be better in Florence on Thursday if Fiorentina are to win. Neither played well in Kyiv and it took a late strike from substitute Babacar to rescue the game and Fiorentina will be hoping that they do not need similar heroics on Thursday at home. Fiorentina have lost three of their last four including two home losses although one was to Juventus and the other was on Monday when, as I mentioned, they rested alot of starters.
Tough to see how this one will work out but I liked Dynamo Kyiv alot last week and I think they were very unlucky not to close out the game with a win. I'm going to take both teams to score tomorrow as I think Kyiv know they must come out and go for it and I also think that at home Fiorentina will find a way to get through this game and into a semi final. This on should be really good to watch.
