Dynamo Kiev Preview – Can Dynamo improve what has been a poor run of results in the Europa League?

Participation in the Champions League may not have went as planned for Dynamo but there is still plenty of potential for Mircea Lucescu’s first season in charge of the club to be a very successful one. The veteran coach has guided the Kiev club to top of the domestic league (three points clear of his former team Shakthar Dontesk) and this is an opportunity for them to progress further in European competition.

Lucescu knows what it takes to win the Europa League as well having led Shakthar to glory in 2009. He would love to repeat that feat with his new club but they have to improve their overall performance in Europe to have any chance.


Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 goals

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 17 February)
Dynamo were very poor in the Europa League last season winning just one of their six group games and being eliminated at the group stage. Considering the standard of opponent in that particular section there is no getting away from how disappointing they were. Dynamo had reached the last 16 the previous season and that will be their target again.
If the Ukrainians are to progress then much will depend on the contribution of midfielder Viktor Tsygankov. He’s top scorer with 10 goals, two of which came in the Champions League.

Club Brugge Preview – Are Club Brugge set to extend their winning run to 11 matches in all competitions?

Club Brugge were perhaps the unluckiest third place finisher in this year’s Champions League. Despite being down to 10 men for more than half their final match away to Lazio, and also trailing at the time of the sending off, Brugge were tremendous in the second half and missed a guilt edged chance in added time which was ultimately the difference between them playing in this competition compared to the Champions League.

Philippe Clement’s men have not let that disappointment affect them, however, and they resume European football in excellent form. They lead the Belgian league by 13 points with a game in hand and are into the quarter-finals of the Belgian Cup.

Since the draw in Rome, Club Brugge have played 13 games. They’ve won 12 of them (including their last 10) and lost just once. It’s an impressive run of form and ensures they come into this game in confident mood. Brugge have played at this stage in the previous two seasons but their runs have been ended by Salzburg and Manchester United on those occasions.

Veteran striker Bas Dost joined Brugge at the start of January and he has hit the ground running with six goals in eight games and will be eligible to play his first European match for the club, too.

Dynamo Kiev vs Club Brugge Betting Advice

This is the sort of tie where both clubs will feel they have a chance of progressing from. Dynamo Kiev and Club Brugge are both top of their respective domestic leagues. The visitors may just have the advantage in terms of fitness, though, as Dynamo have played only one competitive game since the middle of December – although that is an issue they face continually at this stage of the season.

The teams last met in Champions League qualification back in 2019/20. The Belgians edged that 4-3 on aggregate.


Key Facts – Dynamo Kiev vs Club Brugge Betting Tip

  • Dynamo have won just one of their last eight games in the Europa League (1-0 Malmo, Sept 2019)
  • Club Brugge narrowly missed out on qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League
  • Both of these clubs are top of their domestic leagues, with three and 13 points leads respectively


Due to their incredible winning run and consistency, added to Club Brugge’s fitness advantage, I’m backing the visiting team to take a lead back home with them into the second leg.
