    Default bouncebackability

    Could I use it as in "Dynamo Kyiv showed bouncebackability when they came from a disastrous loss in the prevoius game to a 2-0 win in a game with Dynamo Zagreb yesterday"?

    It's fine as an informal, made-up word of the kind sportswriters are fond of.

    Maybe I would say "against Dynamo Zagreb".
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    I'd use previous instead of prevoius.
