In a journey to qualify for the Champions League, Dynamo Kyiv and Fenerbahçe are facing off this Thursday at the Stadion KLS. For the first part of their second qualifying round tie, the teams are facing off after 14 years, and they’re coming in with history. In the four times, they’ve gone head-to-head in the UEFA Champions League; there’s been two draws and two wins for Kyiv. Do these instances foreshadow the results of the upcoming game? That’s what we’re here to find out. 


To be stationed at the Stadion KLS in  Łódź, Poland, since the Ukrainian team has been displaced due to ongoing conflict, thus Dynamo’s ‘Stop the War, Play for Peace’ tour has been underway. Kyiv has most recently suffered a loss against Antwerp in a 2-1 game. In terms of injuries, Dynamo will be without the playmaking of Volodymyr Kostevych, Vladyslav Kulach, and Ibrahim Kargbo Jr. Besides these absences, there’s no other cause of concern or worry for manager Mircea Lucescu. 


The Istanbul club Fenerbahçe, on the other hand, has been national champions not once, twice, or even 10 times but 19. However, they have not gotten a grasp of the Super Lig trophy since 2014. They’ve won their last five games, so things are looking stable for the team. Only Nazim Sangare is injured in the whole Fener squad and has no doubtful or suspended players either. 


There are some things to be said regarding Dynamo’s current run, and their preparation has not been the most optimal, to say the least. Then again, the team’s drive towards their cause due to conflicts at home is beyond good measure for a persistent and interminable performance for their upcoming game. Their opponents from Turkey are formidable, especially under the hands of the highly-regarded manager Jorge Jesus. They have enough firepower to outdo Kyiv as well; however, it will all come down to motivation from the looks of it, and Dynamo is more desperate more than ever. We say it’s 2-1 in favor of Dynamo Kyiv in a close game with their winning point to be gained last minute. 


2 AM (PST), Thursday, 21 July 2022. Stadion KLS, Łódź, Poland.
