Ukraine's national team is also at risk: Dynamo suffered a serious loss before the match with Besiktas
Dynamo Kyiv legendary midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko will not help the team in the return match of the play-off round of the Conference League qualifying with Turkish Besiktas. The meeting will take place on the field of the Vodafone Arena stadium in Istanbul on Thursday, August 31.
OBOZREVATEL will hold an online broadcast of the match between Besiktas and Dynamo. The game will start at 21:00 Kyiv time.
As the official website of the white-blues informs, Yarmolenko will not be able to play against the Turkish team, as in the first match, due to injury. It is known that the 33-year-old footballer is worried about a partial injury of the lateral ligament of the knee. Andriy should undergo a medical examination in one of the European clinics, after which the terms of his recovery will be known. Probably, the midfielder will miss the September matches of the Ukraine national team in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

After the game, Dynamo head coach Mircea Lucescu expressed outrage at the refereeing, calling his team the "champion of canceled goals." The Romanian specialist also called the Turkish team the national team of Africa.
