FC Lugano vs Dynamo Kiev
Date: Thursday, 3 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Kybunpark (St. Gallen).
Lugano has been struggling to survive this season. Last time around they had been a force to reckon with though. At present, they are placed ninth in their domestic league table and have just a single win to show so far.
They had begun their European quest on the road, against Copenhagen, which ultimately ended in a 1-0 loss for the Swiss outfit.
Kyiv meanwhile, is doing justice to their tag as the second-best unit in Ukraine. They had finished just below champions Shakhtar Donetsk the previous campaign, and in 2019-20 too the situation does not seem to be that different.
