Club FriendlyDynamo Kiev vs Vorskla Poltsava
As national teams are playing qualification matches for European Championships or friendly matches, teams are also using this time to play friendlies and stay in rhythm. Here we have a friendly clash between Ukrainian teams where legendary Dynamo Kiev will face solid Vorskla.
Dynamo is just amazing this season, they have 7 point advantage over their rivals Shakhtar and they qualified to 1/8 finals of Europa League. But in this match they will be without 12! players who play for their national teams + 2 injured players that would anyway also play internationally. Defense and midfield are the parts of the team most weakened as 5 of unavailable players are defenders and 6 are midfielders. So Dynamo is missing 14 of their 25 first team players here, so a lot of youngsters from the 2nd and youth teams will get the chance to play.
Vorskla has a solid squad and they are 7th in the Ukrainian championship at the moment (5 wins - 7 draws - 5 losses, after 17 rounds). They will be just over-motivated not to lose against Dynamo (even win if they get a chance) no matter if this is a friendly or not, staying undefeated against such team brings a lot of benefits to a team (confidence boost being a major one).
It is hard to see Dynamo winning with a second squad here against a solid Vorskla that will have all of their players available.
