Dynamo Kyiv is going to stand against KAA Gent in the game of UEFA Champions League qualification playoffs. The match is supposed to kick off at 10 p.m. Kyiv time, and will be played at Gelamco Arena in Gent.
Gent is sometimes considered the most "Ukrainian" team in Europe. Currently, three Ukrainian players represent the club - Roman Bezus, Ihor Plastun and Roman Yaremchuk appear on the pitch, contributing to success of their team. Yaremchuk, in particular, became a true leader in the club. Even though Gent changed two head coaches since the beginning of this season, the team is still a tough nut to crack, and Dynamo will need to find the respective approach.
As Dynamo head coach, Mircea Lucescu seems to be in trouble, with almost no options in choice of defenders for this game; three defense players are out for the time being.
