FC Zaria Bălți then signed the Ukrainian forward on loan and featured him in three matches. A Danish club Midtjylland then picked him in their squad wherein the player represented them in 18 matches and scored only once.
In the 22 appearances for Midtylland, Dovbyk has scored only once. He then featured in the Sønderjyske side to play as a loan player in the 2019-20 season. He made 21 appearances for this side and scored twice. Though, the years from 2020 brought glory to his career. He has his career-best records for Dnipro-1 wherein he featured in 84 matches and also scored 53 points. For the national side, he made 14 appearances to date and has 6 international goals.
