On Wednesday Ukrainian Grand Prix Dinamo Kiev met the Swiss team Young Boys at the "Olympic Stadium" in a match from the third Preliminary Round of the Champions League.
The hosts are the favorites to qualify for the next phase of the tournament but certainly can not afford to underestimate the dangerous Swiss team.
Dynamo is in a poor series in the Champions League after winning just one of his last 8 matches in the tournament. Moreover, the team failed to score in 3 of their last 4 fights in the race.
Dynamo's hosts do not differ from overall statistics and the team managed to win only two of their last 9 games in front of their own audience. As a matter of fact, the team has lost 3 of its last 4 home games in the race in which it has scored at least two goals in each of the losses.
However, the hosts made a strong start on the home scene after winning their meetings with Chernomoretz and Shakhtar Donetsk, which should give them a certain amount of confidence.
Like the hosts, Young Boys is also in an unenviable series in the tournament. The Swiss have lost 6 of their last 7 Champions League games. In addition, guests have scored at least two goals in each of those losses.
Throughout their history of the race, the Swiss have played 6 matches as a guest, losing 5 of them. An interesting fact is that in each of these 5 games he has scored at least 2 goals.
Despite the weak statistics in the race, the overall results of the team are generally good. Young Boys is in a series of 3 consecutive non-loss matches - a draw against Stoke City, followed by a 2-0 victory over Benfica and a 2-0 win in the local championship over Basel.
