FC Partizan Beograd vs. Dynamo Kiev/ Europa League – In this group Dynamo is objectively the best team and they would have to win placement in the knockout phase. They started very well and in the first round they celebrated the expected a home victory. Partizan could fight for the second place and they also started well, because they played a draw away against their direct opponent. Both teams are in second place in their domestic championships, behind their biggest rivals, with the proviso that Partizan has slightly bigger backlog. These rivals have not met in the near past. Begins: 28.09.2017. – 21:05 CET
FC Partizan Beograd
Partizan has made a good base for the group stage of Europa League because they have played a draw in the first round against Young Boys and it is a good result, so it would be particularly important if they end this match with three points won. It will certainly not be easy because they are playing against the strongest rivals in the group, and it is visible in the championship matches that Partizan is not in the best shape.
They do not lose their matches so often, and besides that defeat in the qualifiers of the Champions League from Olympiacos, they lost only once in the championship at that was at home from Vozdovac, after which they played a very “skinny” draw against Napredak, because they were saving one point in the end though they had more players on the field. They were also defeated in the last round against Rad, and they celebrated with 4-2, and a bad thing before this match is that Stojkovic and Cilicovic are injured, as well as the experienced midfielder Tosic, and Jevtovic.
Probable lineups FC Partizan Beograd: Jovicic – Vulicevic, Ostojic, Miletic, Antonov – Everton, Radin – Ozegovic, Jankovic, Pantic – Tawamba
Dynamo has just like their hosts started their European path in the Champions League, and it is interesting that they were eliminated from Young Boys, a team that was later eliminated from that competition and they will now met in Europa League. Dynamo has played one qualifying round for this competition and they eliminated the team of Maritimo, while they at the start of the group stage mastered Skenderbeu on their field with 3-1, although they received a goal first.
They were good in the championship and they succeeded to defeat their biggest opponent, Shakhtar, but they played 0-0 hat against the weaker rivals, so they are second on the table with one match less. They have played a goalless match in their field against Veres and those are first lost points in front of their fans, which makes atmosphere a bit messy before this match. Coach Katshkevich did not send the strongest team on the field, and Vida and Garmash were on the bench, but we now expect them from the first minute.
Probable lineups Dynamo Kijev: Koval – Vida, Khacehridi, Kadar, Pivaric – Sydorchuk, Buyalsky – Tsygankov, Garmash, Gonzalez – Mbokani
FC Partizan Beograd vs. Dynamo Kiev PICK
Partzan has a good start in Europa League, but they also have a lot of problems in their championship matches lately. Dynamo is not very good in the championship, however, they are individually the stronger team and they have lesser problems with absences, so we believe that the guests will celebrate in this match.
Pick: Dynamo Kiev
