Dynamo Kyiv vs Gent Soccer Betting Tips – Champions League Playoffs 2020

Belgians in crisis with no chance in Kyiv?

Competition: Champions League qualification
Date 29.09.2020

Odds: 2
Stake: 6/10 units

On Tuesday and Wednesday, it will be decided which six clubs will complete the field of 32 participants in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League. One of the best starting positions is undoubtedly the Ukrainian top team Dynamo Kyiv, which was one of only two teams (RB Salzburg was the other) to win the playoff first leg away.

Thanks to the 2-1 success a week ago, Coach Lucescu’s protected should even allow themselves a 0-1 defeat on Tuesday evening. In view of this rather comfortable starting position, it is not surprising that before the second leg between Dynamo Kyiv and Gent there are extremely high odds for the Belgians to advance.

To make matters worse, from the point of view of the blue and white guests, there is still no calm in the club. With Wim de Decker, the third coach is already on the bench in the young season. The 38-year-old ex-professional also suffered an embarrassing 3-2 defeat in their own stadium at the weekend in the domestic league. The Buffalos’ lack of self-confidence could therefore be fatal.

We are probably not leaning too far out of the window when we predict before the game Dynamo Kyiv against Gent that a tip on a renewed success of the Ukrainian runners-up includes value.

Dynamo Kyiv – Statistics & current form

For the past three seasons, Dynamo Kyiv has had to be content with participating in the UEFA Europa League. In 2017 and 2019, the 15-time Ukrainian champion failed in round three of the qualification for the premier class; In 2018 Ajax Amsterdam was one size too big in the playoffs. The chances of being able to get involved in the concert of the greats for the first time since 2016/2017 increased suddenly in the past week.

The reason for this was the very convincing appearance in the first leg at KAA Gent, which was deservedly won 2-1. On Tuesday, the team of coach Mircea Lucescu, who has only been in charge in the capital since the end of July, would already be enough to get through a draw or even a 1-0 defeat.

Kyiv under Lucescu still without a competitive game defeat

At the moment, however, it seems more likely that the blue-whites will confirm their good form in the second leg and leave no questions at all with another sense of achievement. The strong condition can be derived, for example, from the proper start of the season in the league, where the reigning runner-up has at least ten points after four match days and has already scored eleven goals (two goals against).

The dress rehearsal at FC Mynai at the weekend was just as successful as the third-round match in qualification when the Lucescu team confidently brought the uncomfortable guest from Alkmaar to their knees 2-0. The impressions of these matches in connection with the existing quality and the form weakness of the opponent are sufficient factors to justify the attractive odds for another home win in the playoff second leg between Dynamo Kyiv and Gent.

The probable lineup of Dynamo Kyiv:
Bushchan – Karavaev, Mykolenko, Zabarnyi, Kedziora – Sydorchuk, Buyalskyi, Shaparenko – De Pena, Tsygankov – Supryaga

Gent – Statistics & current form

The KAA Gent started the new season with great ambitions. Due to the relatively high transfer expenses of almost 20 million euros, the runner-up of the previous season wanted to once again dare to attack the top in the new season. After less than two months, the mood in East Flanders could hardly be any worse.

With Jesse Thorup and Ladislaus Bölöni, two coaches had to take their hats off. Wim de Decker is currently responsible for the Buffalos. At the beginning of his term of office, the blue and whites presented themselves better and landed, among other things, the important success in the third round of the Champions League qualification against Rapid Vienna. The league debut in Mouscron was also victorious. In the meantime, the initial euphoria seems to be slowly dissipating again.

Five defeats in seven league games for the Buffalos

In addition to the mentioned 1: 2 bankruptcy in their own stadium against Dynamo Kyiv, there was also a sensitive 2: 3 defeat at home against Leuven at the weekend, which caused the Champions League round of 16 to slip to 15th place (!). The defense remains the biggest construction site with ten goals already, But even the offensive with the ex-Heidenheimer Tim Kleindienst has so far in no way met the expectations placed on it.

Due to the weak form and the lack of self-confidence, we consider a trend reversal on Tuesday evening to be almost impossible. In addition, between Dynamo Kyiv and Gent, a prediction for the home side is obvious because the guests will be forced to take more risks due to the defeat in the first leg. Because the balance between courageous attacking football and stable residual defense has not yet worked at all, there are further advantages for the Ukrainians.

Probable lineup of Gent:
Roef – Fortuna, Ngaduji, Plastun, Castro Montes – Owusu, Dorsch – Ofoe, Yaremchuk, Depoitre – Kleindienst

Dynamo Kyiv vs Gent – Direct comparison / H2H

Last week’s first leg, which Dynamo Kyiv deserved to win 2-1 in the Ghelamco Arena and still left numerous chances, was not the first meeting of these two teams at the European level. Already in the 2010/11 season, the clubs faced each other in qualifying. Back then, the Ukrainians clearly had the upper hand in both the first and second legs. The same fate beckons again almost exactly ten years later …

Dynamo Kyiv vs Gent Soccer Betting Tips

Before the playoff second leg between Dynamo Kyiv and Gent, lucrative betting odds on the home win of the favored Ukrainians are offered. We can’t get rid of the feeling that the odds are only so high because the Eastern Europeans are no longer forced to win the second leg due to their 2-1 success in the first leg. Nevertheless, we believe in another triumph of the Lucescu team.

This assessment is based in particular on the very weak form of the Belgians, who not only lost five of their previous seven league games but have already worn two coaches in just two months. At the latest after the embarrassing 2: 3 bankruptcy at home against Leuven on the weekend, the initial euphoria under Wim de Decker suddenly evaporated.

Key facts – Dynamo Kyiv vs Gent tips

  • Dynamo Kyiv have not lost a single competitive game this season
  • Gent has already suffered five defeats in seven league games
  • The Ukrainians won the first leg in Belgium more than deservedly 2-1

The home side, on the other hand, has not yet lost a competitive game under their new coach Lucescu in the current season and showed, among other things, in the third round of qualifying at home against Alkmaar at 2-0 that the desire to return to the group stage of the premier class for the first time since 2016/2017 achieve that drives the functioning team.

The bottom line is that we don’t think the Ukrainians will play for a draw. Much more, it can be assumed that the blue-whites benefit as the game progresses from the fact that the Buffalos have to take more risk. The available rooms are a kind of invitation for the host. Between Dynamo Kyiv and Gent, we are therefore playing the tip on a home win with six units.
