UEFA Champions League: FC Barcelona vs. Dynamo Kiev


The Ukrainians need to beat FC Barcelona this evening (20:45 CET) to have any chance of advancing to the last 16 of the Champions League.

While the Catalan giants require only a point to guarantee progress to the group stages, a win would guarantee they finish first.

Dynamo coach Valery Gazzayev is calling on fans to make the difference in a clash to be played in freezing temperatures.

“The group is very tight and all four teams still have a good chance to qualify. If we want to continue our Champions League campaign then we need a win, so our motivation is huge,” Gazzaev said in a press conference.

UPDATE: Holders Barca needed an 86th-minute free kick by Lionel Messi to win 2-1 at Dynamo Kiev and edge Inter Milan to top spot in their group.
