FC Dinamo Minsk will look to halt an alarming glut of goals conceded in UEFA Europa League Group K as EA Guingamp seek a first continental away win since 1996.

Form guide
Dinamo Minsk have conceded nine goals in Group K – more than any other side in the group stage.

Dinamo's 3-0 home loss to ACF Fiorentina last time out matched the margin of their worst previous UEFA home result – a 4-1 UEFA Cup qualifying loss to PFC CSKA Moskva in 2002.

Dinamo won all three of their qualifying home games this season without conceding.

Guingamp have not won away in six European contests (D1 L5); their only UEFA away victory to date was a 3-1 success at FC Kolkheti Poti in the 1996 UEFA Intertoto Cup.

Trivia and links
Dinamo are one of only four teams to have made it from the second qualifying round to the group stage (along with FC Krasnodar, HNK Rijeka and Asteras Tripolis FC).

Dinamo striker Franck Dja Djédjé started his career in France; he was contracted to Paris Saint-Germain FC (2003-07) while Guingamp's Younousse Sankharé was a trainee at the club. He subsequently played for Stade Brestois 29, Grenoble Foot 38, RC Strasbourg, AC Arles-Avignon and OGC Nice before heading east.

The coaches
• Vladimir Zhuravel won six national titles as a player during two spells with Dinamo, as well as 11 caps for Belarus. Having moved from the pitch to the bench as assistant coach of FC Torpedo Zhodino in 2005, he struck out alone with a three-year spell at FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk before taking command at Dinamo in 2014.

• A losing UEFA Cup finalist as an Olympique de Marseille midfielder in 1999, Jocelyn Gourvennec played for a number of clubs all over France but returned to his native Brittany to take charge of Guingamp in 2010, leading them to their second French Cup triumph in 2013/14.
