Dynamo survive late Drogheda charge

FC Dynamo Kyiv 2-2 Drogheda United FC (agg: 4-3)
The Ukrainian giants survived a late scare to set up an enticing meeting with old rivals FC Spartak Moskva.

FC Dynamo Kyiv survived a late scare in their home return leg against Drogheda United FC, holding on for a 2-2 draw to set up a mouthwatering UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie against FC Spartak Moskva.

Aliyev opener
Little drama was expected after the Ukrainian giants triumphed 2-1 in Ireland last week, and Yuri Semin's team seemed to snuff out any lingering danger when Olexandr Aliyev fired in from outside the area with 12 minutes gone. That only served to put the hosts to sleep, however, and after Eamon Zayed failed to beat Taras Lutsenko in a one-on-one contest with the Dynamo goalkeeper, Shane Robinson levelled from the spot four minutes before the interval following Badr El Kaddouri's foul on Richard Baker.

Late pressure
Despite mastering possession after the break, Dynamo relied on set-pieces to threaten Jame Ewings' goal, until rapid interplay between Artem Milevskiy and Betão proved too much for the visitors, who brought down the Brazilian defender in the area. Milevskiy converted the penalty, but Drogheda refused to give up and equalised again when Lutsenko's mistake allowed Graham Gartland to head into an empty net. Ollie Cahill then missed a good chance and Robinson saw a shot parried against the woodwork in added time as Dynamo just managed to cling on.
