Match Timings: Oct 20, 10:25 PM
Serie A champions Juventus faces Dynamo Kiev in their opening Champions League Group G game on Tuesday. The Bianconeri will miss their star player Cristiano Ronaldo for now and it would be a big responsibility on Andrea Pirlo to carry the momentum in this away fixture. The Italian Club has emerged victorious against Dynamo in their previous four Champions League matches. In Serie A 2020-21, Juventus overcame Napoli 3-0, before playing a 2-2 draw with Roma. They are coming off with a 1-1- draw against Crotone. They are unbeaten in the domestic competition but playing two draws out of four, they are 4-points behind to Milan and placed at 5th in the table.
Dynamo are playing in the Champions League for the first time since 2016-17. In this season, they suffered an early elimination, picking just one win in the group stage. Their last win was also recorded in the same year when they edged past Besiktas 6-0. The veteran coach Mircea Lucescu has a big responsibility to charge his club. The former Shakhtar Donetsk coach won eight league titles, six cups and the 2008-09 UEFA Cup. Rosenborg finished as the runner-up in the domestic league in the last edition, behind to Shakhtar. In qualifying round, they had 5-1 success over Gent. In 2020-21 Ukrainian Premier League, Dynamo won 4 matches out of six, including two draws. They are standing at the top, 2 points ahead of reigning winner Shakhtar.
