Barcelona hosts Dynamo Kyiv in round 3 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 20th at Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona is going through bad times. The team is in 7th place in the LaLiga standings. Koeman's resignation has been very actively discussed lately. As for the Champions League, the Catalans also look very bad. In the starting two rounds, they suffered two defeats from Bayern Munich and Benfica with an identical score of 3-0. In general, Barça gained only two victories in the last six matches in all tournaments (with one draw and three defeats). At the moment, the Catalans have a streak of three consecutive home defeats in the Champions League. This happened to them for the first time in their history. More recently, the Blaugranas had such players as Messi, Griezmann, Suarez, and Neymar. Now the team has to count on such personalities as Luuk de Jong, Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele, and Coutinho.
Dynamo Kyiv is in the 3rd position after two rounds of the Champions League group stage. The team has one point, which was earned in the home match against Benfica (0-0). In the last game in the European arena, the White-Blues lost to Bayern Munich with a score of 5-0. At the moment, the shape of the Ukrainian team raises many questions. In the last five matches in all tournaments, Dynamo Kyiv won only two times (with one draw and two defeats). The unbeaten streak in the Champions League amounts to four games (one draw and three losses). The last away victory in the Champions League was gained in September last year.
Of course, the hosts are the favorites in this pair. But I would not rush to bet on their clear victory. Still, Dynamo Kyiv has a very experienced head coach, who probably has some thoughts on how to play against the crisis-ridden Catalans. The visitors shouldn’t be afraid of them too much. If Dynamo Kyiv plays carefully in defense, it can upset an opponent in a counterattack. I believe that both teams will be able to score.
