UEFA Champions League: Dynamo concede to Bruges in the away match of the third qualifying round
Dynamo Kyiv unsuccessfully opened for themselves the 2019/2020 Eurocup, minimally giving way to the Belgian Bruges.
On the eve of the match, Alexander Khatskevich was in a difficult situation, as Shepelev was injured in training. Also mentor white-blue again left on the bench Tsygankova - Victor is still not ready to hold a full match. In his place on the right in the midfield appeared newcomer Dynamo - player of the national team of Ukraine Karavayev.
Another player of the team of Andriy Shevchenko - Sobol, who has become Belgian in the starting line-up moved to Bruges in the summer. Also noteworthy is the debut of the black and blue Champions League champions of the Minigolle.
At the beginning of the meeting, the players of both teams made a lot of mistakes and there were enough moments. Already in the 4th minute he could score Karavayev, but he shot above the target. The home team immediately responded with two dangerous attempts, but Boyko managed to shoot Bonaventure and Okereke. In the 15th minute, Besedin himself managed to go face-to-face with a goalkeeper, but Minignol could not beat.
In the first half, teams spent more time in the center of the field, the number of fouls increased, the referee began to issue warnings. Bruges continued to put pressure on the Dynamo players, and in the end the visitors' defense failed. In his own penalty, Caravayev knocked down Rits, and the referee awarded a penalty shot confidently by Bruges leader Vanaken.
After the break at Dynamo, another newcomer, Rodriguez, and Tsygankov appeared on the pitch, who were expected to step up the team's play in attack. However, for a long time, neither the Ukrainians nor the Belgians could create danger at another's gates. Many good white-blue attacks have not been brought to a logical conclusion because of the lack of a final phase.
Still, the Dynamics could play, but in the 65th minute Mitrovic knocked the ball out of the empty net after a shot by Rodriguez, which took place after a corner. The people of Kiev controlled the ball for a while, however, except for an inaccurate blow by Tsygankov, they did not stand out. The Belgians responded with a moment of Shreivers, who almost did not upset Boyko by hitting a short corner. At the end of the duel he could score de Pena, but he also lacked accuracy.
The match was attended by Dynamo players, summoned by Andriy Shevchenko for the June 2020 Euroleague matches against Serbia and Luxembourg: Boyko, Burda, Mykolenko, Sidorchuk (yellow card), Karavayev (replaced by 46 minutes), Bieseni 46 minutes), Tsygankov (to be substituted 46 minutes into the game). In the Bruges the whole match was played by Sobol.
The match between Dynamo and Bruges will take place next Tuesday, August 13th.
