Kiev “Dinamo” in Kazakhstan ahead of schedule will try to reach the playoffs of the Europa League.
Two victories over Rennes as closer Dynamo for release in the 1/16 finals. Now the people of Kiev should think about a more favorable chance in the playoffs – to exit the group in the first place the Vice-champion of Ukraine enough today to beat “Astana”. Satisfied with Dynamo and a draw with the score 3:3 and above – in this case, the charges of Alexander Khatskevich will pass Kazakhs in personal meetings and with the design of the victory in the home match against modest “Jablonec nad Nisou” in Kiev to have problems should not.
Beat “Astana” in Kazakhstan is much more difficult than it sounds on paper. Kazakhs is carried out in Europe in just six seasons, but has already become one of the most desired rivals on the continent. This stems from at least two factors – artificial turf and long flights to Kazakhstan with the change of time zone. With these conditions are unable to cope, Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Galatasaray, Celtic, Olympiakos, “young boys”, “Lehi”, “Slavia” and others. Each of these teams never managed to beat the “Astana” on the road. Suffice it to say that of the 30 home games in European competition “Astana” lost only five.
What speaks in favor of “Dynamo”, is the lack of “Astana” match practice. The last official match of the champion of Kazakhstan held two weeks ago against “Irtysh” (4:0). “Dynamo” managed to play a friendly match against Olimpik Donetsk (3:0) and sensational to give way to the “Alexandria” in the Premier League (1:2).
With “Astana”, “Dynamo” will not help Vitaliy buialskyi, Artem Besedin, Josip Vida, out on the field Mykyta Burda is in question.
