Kryvbas Krivoy Rog and Dynamo Kiev will play against each other in the first match of this round of the Ukrainian league. Dynamo is 100 percent favorite in this meeting and it has been so in Ukraine for many years. However Krivbas’s season started well with two wins before giving a difficult win to the other big favorite in the former Soviet republic Shakhtar.
However, I would put my money on the hosts and will do it for several reasons. The first is that Dynamo have a meeting of the European League against Feyenoord away during the week. In the first match on Tuesday Dynamo found it hard to beat the Dutch with 2-1 after the Dutch team managed to score first in the match. There is no way the majority of the resource of the team will not be transferred to the important meeting that will bring fresh money into the team. I am quite sure that the minor league match will be put on the second plan.
Moreover Dynamo shows weak and shaky play this season. Indeed, the three achieved victories in three meetings which is something to respect, but all three wins were very difficult with late goals and twists.
Krivbas also took two wins at the start of the season and even the minimum loss of 0-1 against Shakhtar could be called a prestigious one. We can say that their tactics won’t be to throw everything for a win against Dynamo. The largest team in Ukraine will also be satisfied with a minimal victory.
That’s why bet on victory for Krivbas with Asian handicap of 1.5 goals for the host. The odds for this prediction are 1.8 which seems to me perfectly acceptable.
