Tuesday’s Champions League schedule brings us Dynamo Kyiv up against Barcelona.
View all of the Dynamo Kyiv v Barcelona predictions, poll and stats below including the latest game odds.
Dynamo Kyiv will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-2 Premier League triumph over Inhulets Petrove.
Mircea Lucescu's Dynamo Kyiv have hit the back of the net 8 times over their past six outings. The comparative number of goals that they have conceded in that time is 8.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Atlético Madrid in La Liga competition, Barcelona and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Barcelona managed 55% possession and 13 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. At the other end, Atlético de Madrid had 9 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Yannick Carrasco (45') scored for Atlético Madrid.
The stats don’t lie, and Barcelona have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 8 goals in total. At the back, Barça can certainly do much better. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued into this match, of course.

Team News: Barcelona
Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has a number of players out of action. Samuel Umtiti (Knee Injury), Sergio Busquets (Ligament Problems), Ronald Araújo (Muscle Injury), Sergi Roberto (Muscle Injury), Gerard Piqué (Knee Injury) and Ansu Fati (Mensical Laceration) will miss out on this game.
We envisage that Barcelona will probably see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, Dynamo Kyiv could well struggle to score themselves- but, we do see them seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
Our selection here is for a 1-3 margin for Barcelona at full-time.
