Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dynamo Kyiv Prediction & Match Preview

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dynamo Kyiv
Ukraine Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 May 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium (Kiev)

The reigning champs will face the record winners of the Ukrainian Premier League. Shakhtar suffered defeat at the hand of Zorya who are in second place in their last league fixture. This is their second defeat in the last 5 matchdays. But a 13 point lead at the top of the table makes them a sure bet for yet another title.

After a recent 3-1 away victory to Dnipro, Dynamo has to rethink their away strategy. With teams like Shakhtar and Zorya to come next, they will have to get at least a point from matches on the road. Currently, they are 3rd in the table even though they are equal on points with Zorya.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dynamo Kyiv: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Both teams have two wins each in their last 5 meetings in all competitions.
  • Both of them scored in 4 of those 5 matches.
  • Three of them had fewer than 2.5 goals at ninety minutes.
  • Shakhtar is unbeaten in their last 4 home games against this opposition.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dynamo Kyiv: Prediction

The face that Shakhtar is playing not at their home stadium may play a crucial in this game. The match is held at the home of Kyiv which makes it more interesting. The head to head stats their clear domination in home games. Also, since they are coming into it from a loss to Zorya they will be under pressure for sure even though the result will not affect them much.

Dynamo will be almost out of the title race if they lose this one. They have currently unbeaten in three matches on the trot as well. I am pretty sure they will get chances to go through the home defense. But they have already lost to this opposition about 10 rounds ago. So I am backing both sides scoring and a narrow win for the reigning champs.
