Ukrainian Premier League / Dynamo Kyiv vs Shakhtar Donetsk – The biggest Ukrainian derby is on schedule already in the third round, while in first two each team won. Shakhtar was a bit more efficient and it occupies the first place in the table and Dynamo is second, but the team from Kyiv has defeated its rival from Donetsk in the Super Cup at the beginning of season. Last year each team won two head-to-head, and drew two other matches.
Game Dynamo Kyiv vs Shakhtar Donetsk begins 10.08.2019 at 16:00 CET
Dynamo started the season perfectly in domestic competitions and won two league matches with a clean sheet. Both times they played in Lviv and didn’t give much chance the home teams to surprise them as they won by 0-2 and 0-3. Before that Dynamo won the Super Cup by winning Shakhtar and that is always especially important for them. Burda and Harmasha scored near the end of match and that turned the result up-side down, but the problem is that they lost to Club Brugge 1-0 in the third Champions League qualifying round. Of the newcomers only Karavaiev earned a place in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Dynamo Kyiv: Boyko – Kedziora, Burda, Kadar, Mykolenko – Buialskyi, Sydorchuk – Karavaiev, Harmash, de Pena – Biesiedin
Shakhtar too started the new season with two victories, although they were the hosts once and they scored one goal more than Dynamo. In the first round they defeated Oleksandria 1-3 and this was a worthy triumph because Oleksandria is tough opponent. In the second round they faced Karpaty and won by 3-0 without any difficulty. It is interesting that all six goals were scored by different players, although one of them was an own goal. Different player was scorer of the leading goal against Dynamo in the Super Cup but Shakhtar unexplainably lost steam in the finish of match and lost. Shakhtar didn't bring too many newcomers and instead will rely on proven players.
Probable lineups Shakhtar Donetsk: Pyatov – Dodo, Kryvtsov, Matviienko, Ismaily – Stepanenko, Patrick – Tete, Marlos, Taison – Moraes
Betting Pick: Dynamo Kyiv vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Shakhtar was more successful than Dynamo in recent year but Dynamo wins more often their recent head-to-head. Shakhtar suffered the only defeat last season right in Kyiv and consequently we give advantage to Dynamo.
Pick: Asian handicap 0 Dynamo
