Match preview

Having enjoyed a momentous victory in the second qualifying round, will Dynamo Kyiv remain on track for Champions League football?

Given that they hadn’t played competitive football since December, the Ukrainian side went into their clash with Fenerbahçe very much up against it.

This was only exacerbated when their ‘home’ leg finished goalless in Łódź.

But then, last Wednesday, Vitaliy Buyalskyi and Oleksandr Karavayev were on target as they won 2-1 at Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, the latter coming deep in extra time.

So, at the very least, Dynamo Kyiv are guaranteed Europa League group phase football.

But, the Blue and Whites won’t settle for that, aiming to reach the Champions League group stage for the 20th time.

Will Mircea Lucescu’s team win this first leg at their temporary home of Stadion Miejski im. Władysława Króla?

Sturm Graz meanwhile, who enter at this stage, will be hoping to play the role of party poopers.

Die Schwoazn haven’t featured in the Champions League proper since 2000, but did qualify for the Europa League group phase last season.

Nevertheless, based on continental pedigree, last season’s Austrian runners-up come into this one as underdogs.

Will Dynamo Kyiv be too strong in Poland?
