Maritimo vs Dynamo Kiev: Preview and Predictions

Maritimo vs Dynamo Kiev Predictions UEFA Europa League Qualification 17th August 2017

Maritimo vs Dynamo Kiev
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Play-off
Date: Thursday, 17th August 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Dos Barreiros.

Dynamo Kyiv suffered shocking Champions League elimination to Young Boys and a potential slip up in the Europa League playoffs against Maritimo would probably cost the Belarusian manager Aleksandr Khatskevich the head coach job.


Maritimo will be looking to back up the fine defensive displays shown against Botev Plovdiv in the third qualifying round as they went through past the Bulgarian side with 2-0 on aggregate.

The team led by Daniel Ramos opened the new Primeira Liga season in similar fashion as none of their two opening fixtures saw more than a single goal scored.

They first dispatched Pacos de Ferreira 1-0 on the home patch before losing to Belenenses with the same scoreline three days later on the road.

Dynamo Kiev

The Ukrainians are off to a strong kick off to the new season in their domestic league as they managed to see off their bitter rivals Shakhtar Donetsk in the second round of the competition away from home.

Dynamo did slip up ten days ago when they only played a goalless draw at the visit to Vorskla, but they recovered with a convincing 3-0 victory over Zirka at their NSK Olimpijs’kyj last weekend.

Maritimo vs Dynamo Kiev: Head to head

This is going to be the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.

Maritimo vs Dynamo Kiev: Prediction

We would not be surprised to see Dynamo playing yet another goalless draw this Thursday.

Maritimo will likely sit at the back and try to keep their net untouched in front of their fans and we can just not see the scenario in which this could potentially be a high-scoring contest.

  1. Sorry I am very new to sports betting so excuse my dumb question. What does it mean by under 2.5 goals? Or over 1.5 goals? I have registered to a few sites but I didn’t understand what it really means?

    • Over 2.5 goals > Total Match goals above 2.5 mark, otherwise 3 or more goals. Example 3-0, 2-1, 2-2 and so on.

      Under 2.5 Goals is 2 or less goals.

      Hope this clear your doubt.
