Dynamo Kiev are struggling at bit in the opening stages of this season. They have failed to take the Ukrainian Premier League by the horns and find themselves in an unfamiliar 3rd position in the table, with the up and coming Zorya currently in Kiev’s customary 2nd place behind Shakhtar Donetsk.

The hosts are already seven points adrift of Shakhtar as well, so their league campaign could already be over. They will want to take that 2nd place spot again though. In the form they’re in that seems unlikely at the moment though. Dynamo Kiev have only won two of their last nine in all competitions, losing three and drawing four after a five match winning streak kicked the season off.

This includes a defeat to Napoli and a drawn with Besiktas in the opening two group games of the Champions League, which is a shame for them considering that this is one of the most open groups in the tournament this season.

Finding the net hasn’t been the problem for Dynamo Kiev. They have netted 11 times in their last five matches and main striker Junior Moraes has six goals to his name this season, with midfielders Denys Hamash and Viktor Tsygankov also having three apiece. At the other end of the pitch they have shipped 11 in their last eight though, so we could be in for a thriller here.

Benfica’s season has gotten off to a decent enough start, although they as well have failed to perform in the Champions League. They kicked the season off with a 3-0 win over Braga in the Portuguese Super Cup and have since won seven of their ten competitive matches, losing just once. This defeat came in the Champions League at group favourites Napoli, with the game ending 4-2 to the hosting Italians. This, coupled with their 1-1 draw against Besiktas, puts them on one point after two games.

In general the visitors are in pretty good form, despite their numerous injury concerns. Striking duo Jonas and Raul Jimenez are both sidelined, but Konstantinos Mitroglou has netted three times this season, although none of these were in the Champions League. Benfica’s three Champions League goals have come from Goncalo Guedes, Eduardo Salvio, and Franco Cervi.

With neither team having any in form standout players going forward I don’t think a goalscorer tip is the best option here. Instead, I’m looking at the visitors. Benfica have lost just once all season and they have won four of their last five outings in all competitions. Dynamo Kiev are in poor form at the moment and have lost three of their last four competitive home matches in all competitions. This includes defeats to Vorskia and Zorya either side of their Napoli defeat, both of whom are worse teams than Benfica.

This, plus the fact that Dynamo Kiev have only won two of their last nine matches, makes odds of 2.075 for a Benfica 0.0 Asian Handicap Win look a very good value bet, and I’m going for that along with a 2-1 correct score prediction at 10/1.

HEAD TO HEAD
This will be the first match between Dynamo Kiev and Benfica.

STATS
Benfica have won 72% of their matches this season, losing just 9% of them. Dynamo Kiev have won just 22% of their last nine outings and have lost 75% of their last four on home turf.

TEAM NEWS
Right back Danilo Silva is still out after picking up an injury last month.

Goalkeeper Julio Cesar, midfielders Andreas Samaris and Andre Horta, winger Rafa Silva, and strikers Jonas and Raul Jimenez are all struggling with injuries, although all but Jonas are close to a recovery and could play on Wednesday.
