Even if we have to wait for almost three months before the contemplative Christmas season is approaching, the tree is already burning brightly with FC Lugano these days. The previous year’s third of the Swiss Super League just does not budge and has since July 21 not won.
Today’s Betting Predictions and Odds Lugano vs Dinamo Kiev
Coach Fabio Celestini is well in the criticism and could soon be without work. However, on Thursday night, the Italo-Swiss will definitely prepare his team for the heavy Europa League match as part of Matchday 2. Then Lugano meets Dynamo Kiev. According to the odds, the Ukrainians are likely to have a better chance of a tripartite.
The White-Blue from the Ukrainian capital won their opening game just two weeks ago against Malmö with 1: 0 and laid down with it an optimal start. In Switzerland, the team of coach Mykhaylychenko wants now reload and thus take a big step in the direction of sixteenth finals.
Since we judge the guests qualitatively stronger and see them also in terms of international experience forward, we present before the kickoff Lugano. Dynamo Kiev the prediction that a tip on the guest will pay off in all likelihood. In the past, the Eastern Europeans convinced in the Europa League, especially abroad, which is why we trust them in the canton of Ticino three points.
Lugano – Statistics & Current Form
There is currently not much going on at FC Lugano. In the Swiss Super League, the black and white are now for eight games without a win and also hailed in the Europa League or the Cup it defeats last.
In the Swiss Cup, the Ticino sang and soundless at second division Lausanne lost (0: 3); On the European stage FC Copenhagen (0-1) was one size too big. The ongoing crisis could not be shelved last weekend. Home against the previous tail light Xamax Neuchatel lost the team coached by Fabio Celestini 0-1 and is thus – equal to the bottom of the table – to find rank.
The game is particularly worrying at the moment. In five of the nine Super League games, the FCL was without its own goal. If one computes all the compulsory games, this was the case even in seven out of twelve cases. On the other hand, the defense is reasonably reliable. The ten goals in the highest Swiss league are to be regarded as a decent value.
Due to the ongoing misery, which now includes eight winless competitive games, it is no surprise that coach Fabio Celestini is about to be replaced. So far, however, the board has renounced pulling the ripcord. The background is a dubious statement from the president that a new coach simply would not have enough time to change things immediately.
Thus, ex-professional Celesti applies in the environment of the Ticino as a kind of “lame duck”, which is only not fired because it just does not allow the circumstances. According to this, the question of whether Lugano can break the knot in the current constellation tends to answer with “no”. Among other things, therefore, we push on Thursday between Lugano and Dynamo Kiev a tip on the guests.
At least the hope is that the Black and Whites have won four of their last five European home games seasonally. However, to what extent this historical statistic influences the events on Matchday 2 of the current Europa League group stage remains to be seen. We expect an insecure home team that will once again encounter footballing and mental limits.
Incidentally, the argument “home advantage” in Lugano is only conditionally applicable, since the own stadium Cornaredo does not meet the UEFA requirements, the international matches are played in St. Gallen. This move to the kybunpark, which is just 300 kilometers away, will not really affect the performance of the Swiss.
With Soldini, Daprela, Sulmoni, Covilo, Macek, Bottani and Rodriguez several players are injured. The greatest hopes rest on the shoulders of Filip Holender, who moved in the summer from the Hungarian homeland to Lugano. The fact that the 25-year-old with three points scorer leads the internal list in the Super League, underscores the so far catastrophic season of Celestini protected.
Expected formation of Lugano:
➤ Baumann – Kecskes, Maric, Yao – Sabbatini – Holender, Custodio, Vecsei, Lavanchy – Carlinhos, Gerndt
➤ Coach: Sabatini

Dynamo Kiev – Statistics & Current Form
With seven appearances Dynamo Kiev is one of the old acquaintances in the UEFA Europa League. In five of the six previous cases, the Ukrainians have always been able to survive the group stage. In the previous year, Dynamo even reached the knockout round prematurely thanks to eleven points from the first five games. After a progress against Olympiakos Chelsea was finally a number too big.
Nonetheless, the players of the multiple national champion have plenty of international experience. Maybe this is one of the reasons why between Bucharest and Lugano Dynamo Kiev knock out the bookmakers in the direction of the guests. In addition, the blue-white compared to the Luganesi, of course, are in much better shape.
Most recently, there were four competitive wins in a row for the Eastern Europeans, who also conceded in the course of this positive run, not a single goal. In particular, the 1-0 home win against the Swedish titleholders for the Europa League opener was extremely important, since as the former European Cup winners can tackle the upcoming tasks in the preliminary round from a strengthened position out.
The fact that Kiev is called on Thursday away, drives the responsible persons and also the fans, moreover, no beads of sweat on the forehead. Last year, Dynamo took seven out of nine away away scorers in the group stage.
The defeat in the second round against Chelsea FC also ended a six-match unbeaten run in the distance at international level. Nine out of a total of 18 guest appearances in the course of the EL group stage were won by the Ukrainians. Between Lugano and Dynamo Kiev is a prediction on a tip in favor of the Mykhaylychenko-Eleven so obvious.
With the exception of Mohamed Kadiri and Mikkel Duelund all men are available. The currently most interesting player in the squad of third in the Ukrainian Elite League is Viktor Tsyhankov and is only 21 years old. The offensive outdoor player is predicted a great career with a top European team. Let’s see if he can make the difference on Thursday.
