Dynamo Kyiv qualified for the next round of the Champions League by beating Fenerbahce Istanbul in the second leg. However, the Ukrainian team took a beating in the second half. Fans of the Turkish club provoked with shameless chants.

fAns of Fenerbahce Istanbul’s behavior overshadowed Dynamo Kyiv’s victory in Ukraine’s second competitive game since the start of the Russian war of aggression. Thousands of supporters of the Turkish club chanted the name of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the second half of the Champions League second qualifying round match. A provocation of the worst kind in view of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. Fenerbahce and the European football union Uefa were asked for comments.

The Ukrainian record champions won the second leg in Istanbul 2-1 (1-1, 0-0) after extra time. The narrow away win was enough after the 0-0 in the first leg to reach the third qualifying round for the premier class. There, Kyiv meets Sturm Graz.

Vitaliy Bujalskyj (57th minute) gave Kyiv the lead, followed by shouts of “Vladimir Putin” from the stands. Attila Szalai (89′) scored the equalizer for Fenerbahce shortly before the end of regulation time, who were outnumbered for a long time after Ismail Yüksek (53′) received a yellow-red card. Oleksandr Karawajew ensured Kyiv progressed in extra time (114th).

The Dynamo Kyiv coach has criticized the incident involving the Turkish fans. Everything went according to plan in the game, “but we didn’t take the fans into account, I didn’t expect such calls – it’s unfortunate,” said Mircea Lucescu, according to the newspaper “Fanatik” after the game on Wednesday evening in Istanbul. Out of protest, Lucescu did not attend the press conference that followed. Fenerbahce coach Jorge Jesus initially did not comment on the incident.

On Thursday, the Ukrainian ambassador in Turkey took a position. “It is very sad to hear words of support from Fenerbahce’s fans for a Russian killer and aggressor who is bombing our country,” tweeted Wasyl Bodnar. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reacted sportily – and with a pinch of humor. “We advise Turkish fans to be on the winning side,” tweeted Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleh Nikolenko.

Complicated situation for Dynamo Kyiv

Dynamo had played the first duel because of the uncertain situation around Kyiv in view of the Russian attack in Lodz, Poland. Since the beginning of the war and the end of the league, Kyiv had kept fit with friendly and charity games – such as in April at Borussia Dortmund.
