Yarmolenko orchestrates Dynamo masterclass

FC Dynamo Kyiv 3-0 FC Thun
Andriy Yarmolenko's stunning first-half strike set up an emphatic win, the extent of the hosts' dominance not fully reflected in the scoreline.

FC Dynamo Kyiv leapfrogged FC Thun to go second in Group G, the home side's dominance not fully reflected in a 3-0 scoreline.

Dynamo's vibrant attacking stunned their Swiss visitors into near silence, the brilliant Andriy Yarmolenko shining brightly with his pace, poise and precision. All those attributes were on show as he broke the deadlock on 35 minutes, and when Dieumerci Mbokani doubled the lead on the hour the floodgates threatened to open. Dynamo could only manage one more, however, from substitute Oleh Gusev.

Yarmolenko's withdrawal midway through the second period perhaps helped keep the score down – and you could have forgiven the visiting bench if they had joined in the loud applause that heralded his departure. He was at times unplayable and had already rattled the crossbar when he found the net. Collecting the ball 30 metres out, the winger wrong-footed Sekou Sanogo Junior with a couple of stepovers before unleashing a powerful drive into the top corner.

Thun were rocked; a second goal seemed a matter of time. Lukman Haruna, Mbokani and Yarmolenko all wasted openings but Mbokani made no mistake a second time, heading in Danilo Silva's cross at the near post. Dynamo were now rampant, pegging their opponents inside their own half and carving them open. Haruna squandered another chance, yet Jeremain Lens' profligacy eclipsed it all as he first headed Yarmolenko's cross wide with only the keeper to beat, and then blazed over after more good work from the No10.

It was brief respite for Thun, whose night was summed up on the rarest of forays forward 12 minutes from time. They won a free-kick just outside the Dynamo box but it was poorly taken and, within seconds via Younes Belhanda and Sergii Sydorchuk, Gusev was side-footing in. Thun will not look forward to the rematch in a fortnight.
