Foot Predictions shows Thursday’s Europa League clash between Club Brugge and Dynamo Kyiv, including tips, preview and possible lineups.
It’s all to play between Club Brugge and Dynamo Kiev since the sides are locked 1-1 in the direction of Thursday Europa League second leg draw in the last 32nd leg.
Brandon Mechele tapped to cancel Vitaliy BuyalskiyThe first goal was in Kiev, with that away goal that gave Brugge a slight advantage by going to the reverse game at Jan Breydel Stadium.
Dinamo have not won any of the last eight European games, suffering at least twice in each of the last four, although the draw may be sufficient on Thursday.
Mircea LucescuThe team side may be lucky not to be a goal behind entering this competition, however, as Bas Dost missed a good chance for Brugge at the end of last week.
Brugge continued their draw in Ukraine with a 3-0 win over Leuven in the Belgian First Division on Monday, with a 15-point lead.
Philippe ClementThe team’s men have been unbeaten for 12 games in all competitions, winning 11 of them – with the exception of the tie with Kiev.
Dynamo himself has been in good shape, drawing two and winning one of his three official games in 2021.
Ukrainians have also won this season in Belgium, defeating Gent in qualifying for the Champions League – Vladyslav Supriaha and Carlos de Pena on the target that day.
However, they face a team from Brugge who lost just one of their previous seven qualifiers at home in the Europa League, most recently drawing 1-1 with Manchester United in the last 32 games of last season.
Brugge, who like Kiev fell to the Europa League after finishing third in the Champions League group, will enter this round as a favorite to protect what they have and move forward.
If that is the case, however, the hosts will have to keep Buyalskiy and Viktor Tsygankov the pair having been directly involved in 14 of Dynamo’s last 16 Europa League goals.
