Dynamo Kiev News and Form

So Kiev need a very special night at home to turn this around. Just as Chelsea did, Dynamo Kiev won their group in this season’s Europa League. They had a tight squeeze in beating Olympiakos 3-2 on aggregate in the last round. Dynamo Kiev actually have some pretty decent home from running against English opposition. They have taken just three defeats from fourteen previous home games against English sides. Kiev have won 5 of those 14.

In the Europa League specifically, Dynamo Kiev are W2 D1 at home against English opposition. They have won their two previous knockout ties as well in this competition against English opposition, Man City in 2010/11 and Everton in 2014/15. It looks pretty unlikely that they are going to make it three in a row though. Still, they are a really good home side having suffered just two defeats in their last fourteen home games in Europe (W8 D4) which is a fine record. In 5 of their last 13 previous UEFA ties where they had lost the first leg away from home, Kiev fought back to win.
