Champions League Preview
There is a huge game in the Champions League in Group E on Wednesday, as Portuguese giants Benfica stand on the brink of one of their greatest achievements in the recent history of the competition. They are potentially one win away from knocking Barcelona out of the competition. Their aim is relatively simple, as the Portuguese club will need to beat Dynamo Kyiv and then hope Barcelona are held or beaten by Bayern Munich in Bavaria.
Given the way that Bayern have been playing in the competition this season, it looks extremely likely that they will get the win against Barcelona, which means the pressure will be on Benfica to get the win that they need. Benfica have won one of the five games that they have played, with that victory coming in the way of a dominant 3-0 win against Barcelona earlier in the group.
Dynamo Kyiv can’t move up in the final round of games, which means that they will be finishing Group E in bottom place. Kyiv have scored just once in the five games that they have played, with that goal coming in a narrow 2-1 home loss against Bayern Munich.
They have lost four of the games that they have played, with their only positive result coming in the way of a 0-0 draw against Benfica in the Ukraine. Kyiv have also allowed nine goals in the Champions League this season, which is the joint-most of any side in Group E.
Benfica vs Dynamo Kyiv Head to Head
Benfica come into this game with a reliable record against Dynamo Kyiv, as they are unbeaten in their previous four matches. Three of those matches have been won by Benfica, while the 0-0 draw earlier in the campaign was the only tie.
Benfica vs Dynamo Kyiv Prediction
