On the upcoming Saturday the Ukrainian Super Cup match between Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv side will be held at Chornomorets stadium in Odessa. In this couple, bookmakers are on the side of the Miners, which are approaching the match as the clear favorites. It is hard to disagree with the set action line on a number of reasons. First of all, Dynamo have a new manager, who needs time to get used to a new place, and secondly, Dynamo have some squad problems, connected to the club’s finances.
Before the match against Dynamo, Shakhtar Donetsk had a number of friendly matches against Bochum, Odense, Holstein and Charleroi. The results of the matches are inconclusive: there were victories and a loss. But it is important to note, that Shakhtar do not have a lot of squad changes for now, and last year, the Miners had a number of victories over the Kievans, so why not defeat the principal opponents once again?
Dynamo Kyiv had a number of friendly matches in their training camp against Botosani, Wattens, Universitatea, Wacker and Sparta Prague. All in all ,the results are positive: four victories and one draw with Botosani. But playing against teams, like Wattens, is one thing, and to confront one of the strongest teams in Eastern Europe is completely another, moreover the manager Alyaksandr Khatskevich doesn’t have that much experience on a high level.
Dynamo Kyiv will put maximum effort to win the Ukrainian Super Cup, but Shakhtar are objectively stronger right now, than the Kievans. A bet on the Miners looks nice in the forthcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtar Donetsk to win with 0.0 Asian handicap
