Dynamo Kyiv vs Ajax
Champions League Play-off (2nd Leg)
Date: Tuesday, 28th August 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium (Kiev).
Dynamo Kyiv will be hosting the Netherlands Eredivisie side, Ajax, at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv.
For the home team, there will be very little to salvage in this 2nd leg UEFA Champions League qualification fixture after losing in their encounter against Ajax last week.
Nonetheless, they recorded a win in their return fixture at home against Slavia Prague two weeks ago. The match saw them keep a clean sheet as well as thrash Slavia Prague in a match that ended with only 2 goals.
This will definitely be a hard match as they are facing a stronger side. Besides, they will have to do all that is humanly possible to beat a team who thrashed them in the first leg game with a 2 goals difference.
Ajax win be coming into this away fixture in high spirits after an impressive form and performance in their UEFA Champions League campaign.
They are undefeated in their last 3 UEFA Champions League qualification matches. Notably, they are not stopping at anything and are willing to go that extra mile and get into the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.
In the first leg against Dynamo Kyiv, they scooped a win in a thrilling matchup that was 4 goals netted. Now that they will be on the road for this game, they need to remain in the same momentum in order to silence their opponents at their home ground.
Ajax have scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 UEFA Champions League matches out of which four have ended with over 2.5 goals.
