FC Astana vs Dynamo Kyiv
Europe- UEFA Europa League.
Date: Thursday, 29 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:50 UK/ 16:50 CET
Venue: Astana Arena (Astana).
Both of them are on 8 points and on top of the table. Astana has been defending well and the goal difference makes them the leaders.
The home team has been a surprise addition to the Europa League this season and they have proven their worth already. They have never lost a group game until now. With 2 wins and draws each, they have 8 points.
The Kazakh Champs are on the road to another title on the row as they have a notable lead over their domestic rivals. This domestic form has been reflected in Europe as well. They have scored 7 goals and conceded only 4 in their group matches.
Astana is currently on a 3 match win streak in both league and European competitions. This ended a 4 match unbeaten streak in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals came in their previous 4 games as well. At home also they have an unbeaten streak of 9 matches, which includes 7 wins too.
Kyiv has been struggling in the Ukrainian League. After 16 rounds completed they are 3rd in the table with a 9 point deficit for the top spot in the league. European form has been just the opposite. They have not lost a game in Group-K. Defensive errors have to be resolved by Coach Alyaksandr Khatskevich. His team has conceded 6 goals in their 4 matches in UEL.
In their last 6 matches across all venues, they have 3 wins and defeats each. Over 2.5 goals came in 5 of those matches on the trot. But they are fresh from 2 consecutive defeats in the domestic league; both ending 2-1 in favor of their opponents. The last 4 games they played had a final score of more than 2.5 goals in total.
The result of this match will surely decide the group winners and the remaining 2 sides in the group won’t have to gain from this game.
