Dynamo Kyiv is hosting Juventus at Olimpiysky National Sports Complex in round 1 in the UEFA Champions League.
Dynamo is one of the best teams in Ukraine, and they haven’t lost any of their last 12 games. In the Ukrainian Premier League, Dynamo is in the first place with 14 points, 14 score goals, and 3 conceded goals. Tsygankov is the leading goalscorer for Dynamo with 3 goals, while Supryaga and Verbic added 2 goals each. In their latest match in the Premier League against Rukh Lviv on the road, Dynamo has had 54% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, and 6 corner kicks. With 1 goal in each half, Dynamo has won this game 0-2. Unfortunately for Dynamo, they ended up in second place in the Premier League last season with 45 points, massive 23 points behind Shakhtar. Offensively, Dynamo was good with 65 scored goals, but their defense wasn’t so good with 35 conceded goals in 32 games. Dynamo is a solid team with a few good players, but I don’t think it will enough for the Champions League because they are in a group with Barcelona and Juventus.
Juventus hasn’t lost any of their last 5 games, and they are still undefeated in Serie A so far. With 8 points, 9 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals in the first 4 games, Juventus is in 5th place in the Serie A standings. De Ligt, Sandro, and Ramsey are injured, while Ronaldo and McKennie are in quarantine because of the Coronavirus. In their latest Serie A game against Crotone on the road, Juventus has had 54% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Juventus started well, but then Chiesa conceded a red card in the 60th minute. We saw an exciting first half of this match, and both teams have scored 1 goal. There were no goals in the second half, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Ronaldo is the leading goalscorer for Juventus with 3 goals in Serie A this season. Juventus has the new coach, a few new players, and a new game style, and it might take a while for them to get used to it, but once most of the injured people come back, and Ronaldo gets into his usual goalscoring form, this could be the better Juventus team than most of the teams from the last few seasons. Juventus has only 1 goal this season, and that is to win the Champions League, but there are many great teams competing here, and I’m not sure if Juventus has what it takes just yet.
The last game Dynamo and Juventus have played was back in 2002, and Juventus has won that match 1-2. Even without all the injured players, Juventus has more quality and depth, and they are the favorites in this game. I will take Juventus on the road.
