Dynamo U19, who are the only team still representing Ukraine in euro cups this season, faced Deportivo away in the UEFA Youth League play-off round.

Kyivans equalized in a few minutes after corner too. Diachuk hit the post after cross by Bliznichenko and Tsarenko scored with a follow-up – 1:1 in the 6th minute!

Deportivo took the lead again twenty minutes later. Ihnatenko was too late to pass to defenders and let Lopez make is 2:1 with a tackle.

In the 36th minute Lopez got his second booking and was sent off. Diallo took a free kick, but the ball went a bit wide.

Dynamo tried to equalize again before the break, but home side defended orderly and made our team lose possession frequently.

Early in the second half opponents exchanged chances. Goalkeeper didn’t let Vivcharenko shoot while Ihnatenko parried the strike by Guerra.
