UEFA Champions League, Qualification Round 3
Slavia Praha - Dynamo Kyiv
Eden Arena, Prague, Czech Republic
August 7, 8.30 p.m.
Dynamo Kyiv FC stepped on the pitch in Prague to face Slavia, the local team, which also counts on proceeding in UEFA Champions League. The Qualification Round 3 of Europe's most prestigious tournament is now underway, and Ukrainian and Czech squads came toe-to-toe in the fixture to figure out who will advance.
Kyivites have not yet allowed a goal in the current season; they can improve this piece of statistics even more.
Czechs also showed some decent game in the early games of this season; all three proved victorious. So, the fixture may turn out quite interesting and full of struggle.
Earlier, Manchester City FC accepted the offer made by Wolverhampton, which is eager to buy the Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko. Mirror wrote that, specifying that the Citizens agreed to sell him for 16 million pounds.
While the deal apparently suits Man City, the 21-year-old native of Zhytomyr region, northern Ukraine, clearly wants to stay. Zinchenko plans to keep training with Josep Guardiola's team, even though he does not have enough game practice for now.
