Kiev will play against Astana, and Vorskla will have an away match in London.
After two days of Champions League, today, 20 September, we expect fights in the Europa League. Here we have two representatives of Dynamo and Vorskla.
Dinamo will meet with the Kazakh Astana on the background of the unsuccessful performances in the championship after relegation from Ajax from the Champions League team Khatskevich three lost points in the Premier League, losing twice.
Kazakhstan football in the last few years is experiencing a real Renaissance. To a greater extent with UEFA that is Astana. The capital club in the domestic arena is unmatched, and in Europe last year came in the playoffs of the Europa League after losing to sporting.
Interesting that Astana has arrived in Kyiv without a head coach. Officially the team is headed by Ukrainian Roman Grigorchuk, but in fact he is missing at his post. A month ago the coach due to personal circumstances left Astana and is still not back.
Despite recent setbacks, the favorite of this tie is seen still a Dynamo. The status obliges.
Vorskla, devoid of the need to get into the group stage through the qualification, will start in the group stage of the Europa League match against group favourites – London’s Arsenal. Still on the road.
Vorskla on the domestic front, things are clearly going downhill. The starting failure was replaced by strained, but still victories. The last one was suffered in Lviv over the strong Carpathian mountains (0:1).
Of course, it will be interesting not only this duel, and then, with what spirit will come to Emirates inexperienced European battle-team Sachko. In such meetings for Poltava initially may not be losses, but only one purchase. Judge for yourself, for the defeat in London with Vorskla nobody asks, but any positive outcome will be erected Poltava players in the rank of heroes. The chances of a positive result are available. Moreover, it is unclear how the composition with Vorskla will play emery’s team and what attitude she will have.
Note that the match Dinamo Astana will start at 19:55, and for Vorskla kickoff in London will be performed at 22:00.
