Dinamo Kiev and AZ Alkmaar will face NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium on Tuesday night in a match from the 3rd preliminary round of the Champions League. For the Ukrainians, this will be their first game in the new European season, while AZ has already played in the previous round, managing to eliminate Viktoria Plzen.
Dinamo Kiev failed to win the fourth consecutive match.
On Friday, they drew 0-0 against Desna in a match in the first Ukrainian league.
Before that draw, Dinamo’s offense scored lightly, totaling 12 goals in 3 consecutive matches.
4 of the last 5 matches played by Dinamo Kiev ended with at least 3 goals scored and, at the same time, with goals in both goals.
AZ Alkmaar’s match in the first stage of the Dutch championship has been postponed, and now he will enter this qualifying match behind a series of 4 consecutive games without victory.
However, AZ’s only official game was in the Champions League qualifiers, when it needed extra time to qualify against the Czechs at Viktoria Plzen.
Only one of the last 5 games has produced at least 3 goals, while in 3 of them there have been goals at both gates.

Football Prediction of the Day Dinamo Kiev vs AZ Alkmaar
Despite the fact that AZ has already played a match in the Champions League preliminaries, and Dinamo Kiev will only now enter the competition, I consider that the Ukrainian team has a better pace of play.
Dinamo Kiev is already coming after 3 competitive matches, 2 in the Ukrainian championship and 1 in the Ukrainian Super Cup.
Lucescu’s students showed strength and determination, especially in the match with Shaktar in the Super Cup when they won against the great rival with the score of 3-1.
AZ Alkmaar is a team full of talented young people, who can put big problems on Dinamo Kiev’s defenders. Considering that the qualification is played in one round, we will see two super-motivated teams and I think this will
lead to a football show. My prediction is that both teams will score.
