Juventus is welcoming Dynamo Kyiv to Allianz Stadium in round 5 in the UEFA Champions League.
Juventus is playing solid soccer, and they haven’t lost any of their last 6 games while winning 4 of those 6 games. Juventus has scored at least 1 goal in all of their last 6 games, 14 goals in total, but they were able to keep only 1 clean sheet in those 6 games. Juventus was playing against Benevento on the road in their last Serie A game, and despite being the better team, they were only able to get a 1-1 draw. In the Champions League, Juventus is in second place, and they will be advancing to the next stage, the only question is from which spot. Morata has been Juventus’ best player in the Champions League with 5 scored goals, while Cuadrado added 3 assists. Gori, Demiral, and Chiellini are injured, while Ronaldo will be rested for this game. In their last game against Ferencvarosi, Juventus was the dominant team with 66% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Juventus was losing, but they were able to turn the game around, and with a goal in the 92nd minute, Juventus has won 2-1. It seems that Juventus’ players are still getting used to coach Pirlo’s ideas and tactics, but they should get there faster because the competition is strong.
Dynamo is in 3rd place in this Champions League group, and they will be fighting for the Europa League with Ferencvarosi. Dynamo Kyiv is shaky as of late, and they have lost 3 of their last 5 games. Dynamo has beaten Vorskla in their last Premier League game, but they have lost their last 2 games in the Champions League. In their last Champions League game, Dynamo was hosting Barcelona, and they were playing solid soccer, at least in the first half. Dynamo has had only 30% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Dynamo was defending well in the first half, but they conceded 4 goals in the second half, and they ended up losing this game 0-4. Tsygankov has scored 2 goals for Dynamo, while De Pena added 1 goal. Buyalskiy has added 1 assist. Burda, Tymchyk, Kostevych, Rusyn, and Buyalskyi are all injured, and they will miss this game. Dynamo has a little bit fewer injuries than they had last week, but still, some important players are out of commission. I think the last game of the group stage will be crucial for Dynamo, but they are lucky enough that that game is being played at home.
Juventus has beaten Dynamo on the road in their first Champions League game, and they are the better team here, by far. Dynamo has had some good moments in this Champions League campaign, but that’s about it from them. Juventus is the big favorite here, and I will take it.
