Tuesday, 18 July, Dynamo will open a new Ukrainian League home game with Chornomorets Odessa.

What to expect from this game, said the famous scorer Alexander Kosyrin, who in his time played for “Dynamo” and “Chernomorets”:

Dynamo managed to play for the Ukrainian super Cup with Shakhtar. The capital club have a new coach, new players.

Usually first games are always a retractor. I don’t think Chornomorets will try to pressure or play the first number. Most likely, guests will be on the defensive like the rest of the team against “Dinamo”, and wait for the opportune moment to pop up to the counter.

Kiev, of course, will have the advantage to control the ball and create chances – and, as far as we know, the more opportunities, the more likely to score.

– How much has changed “Chernomorets” in the offseason? We will see the same team as last year?

– I think, like in the previous season, despite the fact that some leading players left. Unfortunately, very carefully for the team I don’t watch, but I know that joined the staff of the youth. Of course, it takes time to learn and show high level. This is another reason to attack more “Dynamo”, and to defend – “Chernomorets”.

– How, in your opinion, the result of the match will affect how the Dynamo will enter the season, on the morale of the team?

– I think, in General will not be affected, “Dynamo” prepares for League of Champions for team priority to get to the group stage, so all the forces they will have to concentrate on this. And the super Cup and the Ukrainian League, I think, at the moment a lower priority.

– In your opinion, what is the “Dynamo” we will see in the new season, given the arrival of a new coaching staff and a few newcomers?

– Alexander Khatskevich picked players under him, his vision of football and they should benefit. Of course, Dinamo have more opportunities to invite the players, than the same “Chernomorets”. But I’m sure the upcoming game will be interesting.
