Ajax vs. Dynamo Kyiv match will be played on Wednesday, August 22, at the Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam. This is the first leg of Champions League qualifying playoffs phase.  Ajax eliminated Standard Liege in the previous round by 5:2 on aggregate, while Dynamo Kyiv was better than Slavia Prague in the previous round by 3:1 on aggregate.


Ajax is in a series of four games without a defeat in all competitions. In four out of their last six matches we saw over 2.5 goals.

Dynamo Kyiv is undefeated in their last 16 matches in all competitions. In fact, they were defeated only once in their last 25 games!


These teams met two times before. In 2010, Ajax recorded a home victory by 2:1, while Dynamo Kyiv played only 1:1 at their home against Ajax.


Ajax has big ambitions for the current season. They bought two excellent players from the Premier League - Danny Blind and Dusan Tadic, and these two should help them to achieve their major goal - qualifying for Champions League group phase. Ajax didn't have a great start at Eredivisie, where they recorded only a draw against Heracles in the opening game, but they went to defeat VVV in the second round, and they are 6th on the table at the moment, after two rounds. In Champions League they played much better and they hope that their string of successful results will last.

Dynamo Kyiv is in an excellent for at the moment. Although they are outsiders against Ajax, they will do anything in their power to eliminate Ajax, which is the favorite in this match. In the first leg, Dynamo will probably defend at try to hurt Ajax on counter attacks.
