Shakhtar has dominated this season in all aspects of the game. There is no other team which has scored more goals or conceded least goals than the Champions. Also, they are unbeaten in league games against Dynamo.

But the hosts have lost their recent game against Desna which puts them under more pressure coming into this game. So the visitors will have the upper hand and also there is high chance that this will end as a draw.

Kyiv has scored 58 goals in the 28 matches so far. This is the second best scoring rate after the toppers. They have also found the back of the net in recent head to head clashes against Shakhtar including cup games. So we can expect goals on both ends of the pitch this weekend.
