Dynamo Kyiv vs Fenerbahce Prediction

Dynamo Kyiv will rely on forwards like Benjamin Verbic and Viktor Tsyhankov to provide them with attacking impetus.

Fenerbahce, on the other hand, finished second in the league, eight points behind league leaders Trabzonspor. Former Darmstadt striker Serdar Dursun scored 15 league goals for Fenerbahce last season. It will be interesting to see whether South Korean centre-back Kim Min-jae plays or not, with the 25-year old linked with a move to Napoli.

Rennes are closing on Kim Min Jae as new signing. Napoli want him but Kim has now reached an agreement with Rennes on personal terms. 🚨🇰🇷 #transfersNegotiations now ongoing between clubs with Fenerbahçe for €19.5m.

Fenerbahce should have enough firepower to prove victorious over Dynamo Kyiv.

Prediction: Dynamo Kyiv 1-2 Fenerbahce
