Dynamo Kiev take on the visitors Skenderbeu at “NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium” in the matchday one of the UEFA Europa League Group stage. The game will be played in Kiev on Thursday, September 14th.
Dynamo Kiev lost only twice in 12 clashes played in this season and both those failures have cost the club funds and prestige as Aleksandr Khatskevich’s side was beaten in the Ukrainian Super Cup and the UEFA Champions League Qualification. The team from Kyiv took a confident 3:0 triumph over Oleksandriya in their last match in the Ukrainian Premier League on the eve of the Eurocups battles. However, despite that victory Dynamo Kiev gave the first place to Shakhtar Donetsk, having received a default loss in its head-to-head against Mariupol. Therefore, Dynamo Kiev come up to the Eurocups in a blue mood.
