Desna Chernihiv boss Oleksandr Ryabokon will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash with a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Dynamo Kyiv
Dy. Kyiv boss Mircea Lucescu has to currently contend with reduced team options. Volodymyr Kostevych (Meniscal Injury), Denys Garmash (Injury to the ankle), Benjamin Verbic (Knee Injury), Mykyta Burda (Achilles tendon rupture) and Tudor Baluta (Metatarsal bone bruise) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
When taking all factors into account, Desna Chernihiv should have enough to find the net against this Dynamo Kyiv lineup, although just one goal is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re therefore tipping a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for Dynamo Kyiv at the end of the match. Should be an interesting one.
