Dynamo Kyiv is competing in games all around Europe in their 'Match for Peace' tour. In the presence of 35,000 fans, they played their fourth match of this tour in Dortmund. The result of yesterday's friendly match was in the favour of the Dynamo Kyiv. The visitors defeated the hosts 3-2 and most importantly raised $426,000 for the victims of the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Next, Dynamo will face Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, AC Milan, Dinamo Zagreb, and FC Basel 1893. They are visiting Germany's largest stadium this Tuesday to play against Barcelona, AC Milan, and PSG.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said prior to the match, "Football is the most beautiful pastime in the world. But there are things that are so much more important. Peace, health, home, education. In the middle of Europe, all this can no longer be taken for granted. And that hurts a lot. We stand by the people of Ukraine. Together with the BVB family, we have already brought many tons of relief supplies to the country and now we also want to collect money."
