2014/15 UEFA Europa League, 2014 First Round
  • Domagoj Vida (70')
  • Oleg Gusev (90'+3')
  • Aleksandar Dragovic (68')

Dynamo Kiev 2-0 AaB

Dynamo Kiev claimed top spot in Group J of the Europa League, beating AaB 2-0 with both goals coming after the hosts had been reduced to 10 men.
In a match short on chances for both sides, Domagoj Vida's opening goal came moments after Aleksander Dragovic had seen red in the 68th minute.
And although the game was not completely safe until Oleg Gusev scored a second two minutes into time added on, AaB had done little to worry them in the meantime.
The result moves Dynamo top with nine points from four matches after Steaua Bucharest drew 2-2 against Rio Ave.
An early flurry of activity proved a false dawn for the match.
Two minutes in, Thomas Enevoldsen's shot had to be turned away at the expense of a corner, and AaB were on the attack again moments later with Olexandr Shovkovskiy able to hold Nikolai Thomsen's shot.
Younes Belhanda fired wide at the other end before Henrik Dalsgaard passed up another opportunity for the visitors with 14 minutes gone.
But there was hardly another sight of goal for either side until after the hour mark, when AaB goalkeeper Nicolai Larsen palmed Artem Kravets' shot wide.
The game might have swung away from Dynamo in the 68th minute when Dragovic was shown a straight red for a poor challenge on Kasper Risgard, but instead the hosts almost immediately took the lead.
Andriy Yarmolenko curled in an inswinging corner and Vida headed home from close range.
With eight minutes left, AaB mustered their only half-chance to level, with Thomsen's shot diverted wide by Sergiy Rybalka for a corner from which the visitors failed to muster an effort on goal.
Gusev than made certain of the points as he powered a shot home from the edge of the area in time added on.
