Dynamo Kyiv host Shakhtar Donetsk for their Matchday 3 clash in great form and on the back of a six-game winning streak across competitions, hoping to build on it and challenge the top spot in Premier League early on.

Dynamo have beaten Shakhtar 1-0 in Super Cup at Stadion Chornomorets in July, where a single goal from Vitaliy Buyalskyy proved enough, and built on the success with similarly narrow wins over Vorskla and Lviv. This will surely be a great confidence booster by itself and the crowd at NSK Olimpijs’kyj will be looking for more of the same.

Shakhtar have meanwhile bounced back with confident displays against Desna and Arsenal Kyiv, bagging five goals along the way and now topping the table with Oleksandria and Dynamo still breathing down their necks. Miners have suffered a 2-1 loss on their last trip to this ground and now surely have a lot to prove!

Dynamo Kyiv vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Head-to-head

Indeed, Shakhtar have bagged just one win in the sides’ last six head-to-head clashes, which will be worrying.

Dynamo have earned four wins and just a single draw along the way.

We’ve gotten used to very narrow clashes along the way, with just one of those ending with three or more goals.

Dynamo Kyiv vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Prediction

We will now stick our necks out for Dynamo to build on such records and a very confident spell of form of recent, where a Home win could prove overpriced at 3.10. They’ve been rock-solid and will be a very tough nut to crack despite the visitors’ recent confidence boosters.

Kyiv rivals have based their success on a stable defensive line and we expect a similar scenario on the day, now going for a sixth low-scoring clash in seven head-to-head matchups and backing Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.87 – hoping for Dynamo to prove their worth once again and just narrowly turn this one their way.
