Saturday, 18 November 2017 kick-off 14:00

The away game against FC Zirka Kropyvnytskyi was the start of really intense period for FC Dynamo Kyiv.

The White-Blues will play six matches within about three weeks.

Comparing with the game against FC Vorskla Poltava, which was the last one for our team before the break for international fixtures, there were several substitutions in Kyiv side starting lineup. Kadar and Pivaric replaced Vida and Mykolenko. Shepelev and Tsyhankov took places of Korzun and Harmash in the midfield.

Olexandr Khatskevych’s men got down to business right after the starting whistle. Mbokani created the first chance for visitors. He made defender foul in front of Zirka penalty area. Pivaric took the free kick and hit the post.

After that Dynamo created one opportunity after another. Moraes and Buialskyi had worthy attempts. Eventually the White-Blues opened the score halfway through the first half. Moroziuk put a cross into the box from the corner flag and Mbokani headed the ball in.

Gonzales could score in one-on-one situation after pass from Moraes, but Zirka goalkeeper Past saved his team.

Moraes unleashed a good shot after cross From Pivaric, but missed the target.

Finally Moroziuk found Mbokani inside the box with a great cross and Congolese striker headed the second ball of the game in.

After the break visitors were more careful remembering about the forthcoming Europa League fixture in Albania. Moraes had the best chance to score in the second half as he hit the bar from outside the penalty area.

Home side didn’t manage to deprive Heorhiy Bushchan of clean sheet.

A couple of minutes before the time Olexandr Khatskevych let young Mykola Shaparenko make his debut for Dynamo first team.
