Dynamo Kyiv vs Juventus prediction

Dynamo Kyiv comes into this game as the loser. Much will depend on players like the young midfielder Viktor Tsyhankov, who has been linked to some of the best European clubs in recent times, as well as Carlos de Pena and Vitaliy Buyalskyi.


Juventus, on the other hand, have started relatively well with new coach Andrea Pirlo. The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo will mean that attackers like Paulo Dybala and Álvaro Morata will have to step up, alongside Federico Bernardeschi and Federico Chiesa.


Juventus are the clear favorites for this game and should be victorious over Dynamo Kyiv.


Prediction: Dynamo Kyiv 0-2 Juventus
