The 2 juggernauts of Ukrainian football come up against each other in what should be a dirty game due to the huge rivalry between both teams
Shakhtar last 5 games – WWWLW
Shakhtar are coming off the back of an impressive European adventure and will be looking to kick on starting with the Super Cup. They have got a lot of talent at their disposal so it will be a big signal intent if they can get past Kiev who are the huge rivals in Ukraine.
Dynamo Kiev last 5 games – LWLWW
Kiev are normally the ones looking on while Shakhtar dominate as the powehouse of Ukraine and will be looking to continue fighting to get to the level that they would want to be. Due to no european commitments they have been able to fully focus on the game ahead which might give them the edge they need. They have lost a starting defender but there will be enough cover to ensure the loss isnt too big.
Both teams started the season with big wins of 3-1 and 4-1
