Dynamo Kyiv's star midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko will not help the team in the upcoming Conference League play-off match against Turkish side Beşiktaş. The captain of the Ukrainian national team was injured and will not take the field in the match, which will take place on 24 August.
The teams will play on the field of the Dzhuleshti Stadium. Watch the online video broadcast of the Dynamo vs Beşiktaş match on OBOZREVATEL. The match starts at 20:00 Kyiv time.
Yarmolenko's injury was reported by the Dynamo Kyiv Inside Telegram channel. According to the channel, the midfielder was injured and was not included in the matchday squad. There are no other details of the injury to one of the team's leaders, Mircea Lucescu.
It should be noted that for the first time since 1996, Dynamo Kyiv may be left out of the autumn part of the European season. Back then, although the White and Blues made it to the group stage of the Champions League and even won the opening match, they were eliminated from the tournament and their victory over Greek side Panathinaikos was cancelled.
On the eve of the game with Beşiktaş, the media found out that there was incredible tension in the camp of Lucescu's team between the players.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, before the match against Beşiktaş in the Conference League, Dynamo Kyiv sensationally lost to Chornomorets Odesa in the UPL.
