- Juventus have won six of their last seven matches in the Champions League.
- The Turin giants have won ten of their last 13 Champions League group stage matches.
- Dynamo Kiev lost both meetings with Juventus in the 2002/03 group stages, with the home game ending 2-1.
Ronaldo-less Juve can still threaten in Kiev
An excellent run in the Champions League qualifiers saw AZ Alkmaar and Gent eliminated at the hands of Dynamo Kiev, allowing the Ukrainian side access to the group stages for the first time since 2016.
The financial rewards will be welcomed, but after being drawn in a group alongside Juventus and Barcelona their chances of making the knockout stages appear slim at best.
It’s the former of the two European giants that they face on matchday one, and while the Turin side remain without Cristiano Ronaldo after his positive COVID-19 test they are still very much favourites on Tuesday night.
Juventus have won two and drawn two under new boss Andrea Pirlo, and while their 1-1 draw at the newly promoted Crotone on Saturday was a major disappointment they can and should hit back with a win on Tuesday.
The Old Lady have won six of their last seven Champions League matches and have won ten of their last 13 group stage matches. Dynamo Kiev may be in solid form, but a game against Juve is a step up in quality and backing the visitors to take the three points appeals. The visitors have conceded in two of their last three outings though, so a 2-1 correct score prediction is another attractive option.
