Gent vs Dynamo Kiev
Champions League Qualifiers 2020/21 (Play-off round)
Date: Wednesday, 23 September 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: GHELAMCO Arena, Gent.
After a disastrous start in First Division A, team Gent will host Dinamo Kiev with not so high team spirits in UEFA Champions League playoffs round.
It’s been five years since they participate in the group stages of most elite European football competition, four years since the last attempt to qualify.
Dinamo Kiev have been playing very inconsistent lately, so predicting full-time winner for this one is going to be a rough challenge.
Bookies have given a small advantage to the home team, at least when it comes to first leg match, pricing them at 2.40 to gain some sort of leverage before trip to Ukraine.
Gent vs Dynamo Kiev Head-to-head
There were two previous h2h encounters between these two squads. Those happened ten years ago, also in UEFA Champions League qualifying stage. Dinamo Kiev absolutely demolished the Belgium side, winning both games on aggregate 6-1.
Gent vs Dynamo Kiev Prediction
When it comes to their premiere European match, Gent looked really well. They were much better opponent on the pitch than Rapid Wien, gaining a comfortable 2-0 lead through Niklas Dorsch and Roman Yaremchuk. Back line slipped in the 93rd minute and allowed one goal to the Austrians.
Gent’s stats in the domestic league are disastrous in the opening two months. They have collected only six points from opening six games, losing four duels.
It’s been years since Gent had such poor stats in terms of efficiency (five goals in six games). Form is on the rise though – last weekend the Chiefs defeated Excel Mouscron 1-0 on the road.
Dinamo Kiev and their fans should feel lucky after the match against AZ Alkmaar. Dutch side completely outplayed Ukrainians, created a lot of chances but failed to capitalize on their domination. Dinamo scored two goals from two counter-attacks.
We didn’t like their performance in that game at all, which is why we will stick necks out and try with a home win pick.
Gent vs Dynamo Kiev Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.40
Over 2.5 goals in the match @ 2.10 odd.
