Bayern is already safe in the next phase of the Champions League. In essence, they also secured first place in the Group E table. Mathematically, however, that is not yet a done deal. It is necessary for them to remain undefeated in Kyiv, where they will have their last visit in the group stage of the competition tonight.
Dinamo can only surprise, so far only one point has been registered on their account In any case, the team from Munich does not travel to Ukraine with a confident, because the German "boss" sensationally failed the previous weekend and was not strong enough for Augsburg in the Bavarian derby.
Although he did not lose first place in the table in the Bundesliga, after this failure, Bayern does not leave such a dominant impression, since the advantage over the second-placed Dortmund is minimal. The Munich giant has no desire to ruin its reputation on the European scene.
So far, their performance can be assessed more than positively, since they scored a total of 17 goals during four matches, they received only two and, above all, the total number of points won is the maximum.
When Dinamo visited Bavaria at the end of September, Bayern scored five goals.
And they will have the role of the favorite in the next case, despite the fact that they will not play in the strongest team. A terrible threat called Covid-19 has entered the ranks of the Munich team, Niklas Sule and Josip Stanisic are reportedly ill, and other teammates have not escaped isolation, especially Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Eric Maxim Chupo-Moting and Jamal Musiala are in quarantine.
Dayot Upamecano, which has already collected three yellow cards and is therefore automatically suspended, will not be in the combination, and the question mark hangs over the starts of Kingsley Coman and Marcel Sabitzer.
"Sabitzer's situation does not look good, he has problems with the Achilles tendon and the leaf. Koman still feels some kind of pain in his leg," said guest coach Julian Nagelsmann. Dinamo never hit the net in the Champions League.
That's a statistic they could certainly change now, provided they take advantage of a few opponent absences. "The fact that we will play against Bayern motivates us a lot. That is why we will try to provide the best possible result," promised home coach Mircea Lucescu, who will miss Artem Besedin and Benjamin Verbic. Despite everything, they are aware that they may have the toughest game of the season
