Dynamo Kyiv are set to host Juventus at the Olimypiyskiy National Sports Complex on Tuesday in their opening UEFA Champions League group stage fixture.

Dynamo Kyiv come into this match following a 2-0 win over Rukh Vynnyky on the weekend in the Ukrainian Premier League. Goals from Uruguayan winger Carlos de Pena and Luxembourg international Gerson Rodrigues secured the win for Mircea Lucescu's men.

Juventus, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Crotone on Saturday at the Stadio Ezio Scida in Serie A. A penalty from Nigeria international Simeone Nwankwo for Crotone was cancelled out by a goal from Spanish striker Alvaro Morata for Juventus, who had new signing Federico Chiesa sent off in the second half.

Dynamo Kyiv come into this game as the underdogs. Much will rely on the likes of young midfielder Viktor Tsyhankov, who has been linked with some top European clubs of late, as well as Carlos de Pena and Vitaliy Buyalskyi.

Juventus, on the other hand, have begun relatively well under new manager Andrea Pirlo. The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo will mean that attackers like Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata will have to step up, alongside Federico Bernardeschi and Federico Chiesa.

Juventus are the clear favourites for this game, and should emerge victorious over Dynamo Kyiv.

Prediction: Dynamo Kyiv 0-2 Juventus
