Dynamo Kyiv vs AZ Alkmaar – Champions League – Dynamo Kyiv: Last season was not really a good one for them
Dynamo Kyiv vs AZ Alkmaar –somewhat distant from their rivals Shakhtar as well as many compromising results, either at home or in the European competitions where they also disappointed, more concretely in the Europa League group stage, where they could not even qualify in a group that was within reach.
Dynamo Kyiv seems more renewed in terms of game ideas and with a stronger football in this beginning of season. The win over Shakhtar in Ukraine’s Super Cup stands out and besides that, they also managed to start the championship better.
They drew 0-0 with Desna in the last round. I saw parts of the match, and Dynamo had plenty of opportunities to score, essentially in the last minutes of play, and deserved the advantage in the game.
They were the good surprise of the Eredivisie last year and until the interruption of the championship, they were side by side with Ajax and fighting against the Dutch title holders in the race to become the new champions.
The Netherlands decided not to award the league title and only kept the classification table for purposes of qualifiers for the European events.
AZ were already forced to play the previous qualifier and they got rid of a big scare with Plzen, as they were losing 0-1 and in the added time they managed to tie the match that would be decided in extra time allowing AZ to move on.
They haven’t started the Eredivisie yet and after that Plzen game they played 2 friendly matches in order to gain some pace.
It is not an easy task to play in Ukraine at the Dynamo Kyiv stadium, and although there is no crowd, I see Dynamo Kyiv very likely scoring first in this game and taking the knock out with them.
It’s a single leg knock out and that makes things more complicated in terms of reading and analysing these qualifiers, but from what I saw from both teams, I see here a better prepared Dynamo Kyiv side, with more competitive rhythm and with a style of play that leads me to believe that in this game they have all the conditions to succeed and move forward in the knock out.
