dynamo-kyiv vs club-brugge Head to Head:

The first leg, which saw Club Brugge win by a goal to nil in Belgium, was the first time that this pair had faced each other.

dynamo-kyiv vs club-brugge Tip Reason:

Losing the first leg certainly won’t have been on Dynamo’s agenda, nor will they have wanted to return to Ukraine without having scored an away goal, though a 1-0 loss away from home in such two-legged affairs is never the end of the world. Back on their own patch, Dynamo will fancy themselves to overpower the Belgians, though they must be careful, as conceding an away-goal could be catastrophic. It’s often the case that the result of a game reflects very little of what went on, though the result when the pair met in Brugge a week ago was just about bang on. Dynamo weren’t completely dominated, but they were second best in most areas and, as an expected goal difference of -0.90 suggests, thus they deserved to lose by a goal. From a performance point of view, the Ukrainians weren’t up to much last week, but they’re likely to be a different side on their own patch. In qualifying last term, they weren’t great away from home, as they drew with Slavia Praha and Ajax, though they beat the former and drew with the latter in Ukraine. Moreover, Kiev have lost none of their four home qualifiers, three of which they’ve won, since 2016. Unlike Tuesday’s hosts, Club Brugge will be happy with their overall performance last week, but they’ll probably be disappointed with the fact that they go to Ukraine with just a single-goal advantage. That said, the Belgian outfit proved, when featuring in the group stages of this competition last term, that they’re no pushovers, even away from home against top opposition, as they drew (and kept a clean sheet) away against Dortmund. They also beat French outfit Monaco away from home, scoring four goals on route to victory. Such results may not have much bearing on how they fare this term, but they do at least show that Brugge, who still have much the same squad (give or take a few players), are capable. The early betting suggests that Dynamo Kiev are highly likely to emerge victorious from this match, though for all they do deserve to be favourites at home, it’s easy to feel that they’re slightly too short. They may offer more at home, as is almost always the case with Eastern European sides, but their effort last week created a negative impression.
