Dynamo Kiev vs Barcelona LIVE!

Barcelona’s Ansu Fati scored a superb second-half goal to secure a crucial 1-0 Champions League win at Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday.

Barca’s young prospect Fati rescued his team in the 70th minute with a fierce volley from inside the area after the home defence failed to clear Oscar Mingueza’s cross from the right.

However, the Ukraine champions gave Barcelona a hard time in a frantic game, with both teams missing several chances.

The win puts Barca into second place in Group E with six points, two ahead of Benfica. Leaders Bayern have qualified for the knockout stage with 12 points after beating Benfica 5-2.

Elsewhere in Group E, a Robert Lewandowski hat-trick delivered Bayern Munich a 5-2 win at home to Benfica.

While Cristiano Ronaldo hit a late equaliser in both halves for Manchester United’s Group F draw at Atalanta, with Villarreal beating Young Boys in the other game of that group.

Full-time! Dynamo Kiev 0-1 Barcelona

21:53 , Marc Mayo

That’s it!

Nothing special from the visitors but they will not care with Xavi reportedly arriving tomorrow. Dynamo gave it their all but ran out of steam and just didn’t have the quality in front of goal.

Ansu Fati did have it and the 19-year-old’s strike is enough for the win.

21:52 , Marc Mayo

90+4 mins: This game has been scrappy from start to finish and there is still a moment or two of worry as Barcelona look to see it out.

Kiev cannot get the ball though.

21:49 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: The excellent Mingueza wins the ball back and Barcelona are able to keep the ball high up the pitch.

There’s no rush towards the home goal, whatsoever.

21:48 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Five minutes added on...

21:47 , Marc Mayo

89 mins: Chance!

Kiev are still giving it a good go!

Zabarnyi is on the end of a corner and side foots it back across goal, when a hearty smash would have been better. His shot bounces wide.

21:44 , Marc Mayo

87 mins: Fati gets his rest for the final moments, the goalscorer and probable matchwinner comes off for 18-year-old forward Balde.

21:43 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: Still end to end, it’s Barcelona who come forward and Nico refuses to shoot from a good spot 20 yards out, to instead work it wide.

The chance goes however.

21:40 , Marc Mayo

82 mins: Save!

Ter Stegen denies Tsygankov after Barcelona give it away while knocking it around at the back!

The rebound is then fired high over the bar. Kiev are still in this.

21:37 , Marc Mayo

80 mins: Karavaev is forced into a fresh clearance from a Barcelona corner, which was met by an accurate if weak header.

Meanwhile Araujo replaces Lenglet for the visitors.

21:35 , Marc Mayo

79 mins: A bit sloppy from Barcelona but Kiev’s efforts are tired. Buyalskiy hits an effort on target but Ter Stegen could gather at a snail’s pace.

21:34 , Marc Mayo

76 mins: Dembele, direct as ever, whips a shot straight at Bushchan.

The nature of the game hasn’t changed too much since the goal.

21:29 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: That was the first shot on target from Barcelona tonight.

Mingueza picked up the ball out wide, crossed from the right and a defender’s touch took it to Fati - who lashed his shot home before Bushchan could react. A quality finish.

Vitinho is thrown on by Dynamo in reply.

GOAL! Dynamo Kiev 0-1 Barcelona

21:27 , Marc Mayo

70 mins: Fati strikes!

21:24 , Marc Mayo

67 mins: A prime example of VAR working to overturn an error there, and Fati is also good to continue.

Will it motivate Barcelona to grab a winner?

21:23 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: Overturned!

That didn’t take long! One look from Hategan and the foul is given to Dynamo.

Meanwhile Dembele is on for Gavi, the winger’s first appearance of the season.

21:21 , Marc Mayo

64 mins: Kedziora looks to have won the ball before Fati kicked him, but the youngster is hurt.

VAR has been summoned!

21:20 , Marc Mayo

63 mins: Penalty! Fati goes down and Hategan points to the spot!

21:19 , Marc Mayo

61 mins: A rousing rally from the Kiev faithful, just as the hosts attempt to push back from a fresh Barcelona attack.

Plenty of space to exploit in this one, one big question is will the hosts tire?

21:15 , Marc Mayo

58 mins: Close!

Down the other end now, Kiev work a sweet move and Buyalskiy’s cross is cleared only as far as Karavaev, who curls his effort wide of the far-post.

Ter Stegen looked beaten.

21:14 , Marc Mayo

56 mins: Chance!

Lenglet doesn’t know it but Bushchan rushes right off his line for a cross that was never his.

The defender plonks his header right over the Dynamo bar with the goal at his mercy - and he only realises after the chance has gone!

21:12 , Marc Mayo

54 mins: A bit more from the visitors, Dynamo losing the ball quickly after winning it and Alba noticed as much, unlike his marker who was off to the races!

The cross wins a corner which is easily claimed by Bushchan.

21:10 , Marc Mayo

52 mins: Close!

A Barcelona corner is acrobatically improvised towards goal by Lenglet and the ball is launched off the far-post, albeit while unlikely to be going in.

21:08 , Marc Mayo

50 mins: Lenglet is the next to send a man crashing to the ground, after being beaten with a quick dummy.

That’s the fifth booking of a scrappy night.

21:04 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: Harmash attempts to deliver a bouncing ball back into the box from the free-kick but skews his effort into touch.

More composure needed from both teams.

Second-half! Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Barcelona

21:03 , Marc Mayo

We’re back underway in Ukraine...

And an early booking for Gavi after downing Karavaev with a drag back.

21:02 , Marc Mayo

Here come the players...

What these sides are up against in Group E...

20:56 , Marc Mayo

20:50 , Marc Mayo

Nine shots spread fairly evenly between the teams, only one of which forced the goalkeeper into action, sums up that 45 minutes of football.

Barcelona have bossed possession with little end product to show for it, Kiev have been bright when they’ve managed to create one of their few attacks.

With Benfica losing, this is a huge chance for one of these teams to stake a claim for second place in the group. Who will take it?

Half-time! Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Barcelona

20:48 , Marc Mayo

That’s the half, Buyalskiy booked for a hefty hack during that Barcelona attack just before the whistle.

20:45 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Chance!

Fati dummies a cross from a lovely counter and De Jong is just ahead of the ball, once again Barcelona cannot create a serious shot from an opening.

One minute added on.

20:42 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: Chance!

Mingueza whips in a nice cross and Nico’s header deflects off Depay when it might have been goalbound!

Fati cannot control the bouncing rebound and Kiev escape...

20:41 , Marc Mayo

41 mins: Frustrating for the Blaugrana, Fati seeking a free-kick from a ball-winning challenge on his run.

They do win a foul after Harmash leaves a painful looking stud on Busquets’ heel.

20:38 , Marc Mayo

38 mins: The away team work a corner short and Depay finds space down the left channel to put a ball in, but his off-balance cross is mopped up easily.

No shots on target for Barcelona so far.

20:36 , Marc Mayo

36 mins: A bit of Barcelona now to force Kiev back, the end product is distinctly lacking however.

20:35 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: Bayern Munich are 2-0 up in the other Group E game.

Probably good news for these teams, if the Germans can fly away and let them scrap for second place.

20:32 , Marc Mayo

31 mins: Post!

Nico wins a foul which Mingueza sends in - Lenglet flicks it on yet is offside and the flag goes up as it hits the post.

20:31 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Karavaev is next to fire at goal but meets a hasty block.

Sergi is calling out to his players from the rain in what is likely his last game in charge, the interim boss needing to produce a bit of life for his side here.

20:28 , Marc Mayo

28 mins: Close!

Here come Kiev again and Shaparenko rolls his chance wide! Garcia completely lost his man as he burst through the middle.

20:25 , Marc Mayo

25 mins: The hosts load the box and Ter Stegen is forced to save De Pena’s effort with his feet. That had some power to it.

20:24 , Marc Mayo

23 mins: Chance!

Dynamo work the ball into the box and Shaparenko is perfectly placed to finish it off - but scuffs his effort well wide. Disappointing.

20:23 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: Halfway into the first-half and not much for the Kiev faithful to shout about.

Barcelona are comfortable in possession and will surely create enough chances to win the game, if they keep this up.

Busquets probably not the man to deliver the goal, mind. He launches a volley way over from a Fati cutback.

20:20 , Marc Mayo

20 mins: There is the first yellow card of the game, for Garcia.

The ex-Manchester City man was rather late in the challenge and missed the bouncing ball, fortunately not getting much of the man too.

20:18 , Marc Mayo

17 mins: A fresh run from Depay is shut down by a clear cynical trip by Syrota and yet the defender evades a booking.

20:16 , Marc Mayo

16 mins: Chance!

A swift move led by Gavi sees a cross beat the goalkeeper and all the forwards as well, Alba at the back stick unable to make any kind of connection after a faint touch from Bushchan.

20:14 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: Not much momentum building for Dynamo so far.

De Jong and Fati bring clear a Blaugrana counter which settles into more possession for the visitors.

20:11 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Depay stands over a free-kick and floats his cross tamely into the goalkeeper’s chest.

Poor from the Dutchman.

20:09 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Referee Ovidiu Hategan is the latest to get involved in an attack, stopping play for a drop ball in the Kiev half.

Busquets takes the chance to launch a lovely ball out wide right and the cross almost lands for Fati.

20:07 , Marc Mayo

6 mins: A calculated start from the visitors, not over exerting themselves off the ball and happy to work in tight areas on it.

20:04 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Chance!

Depay almost breaks the deadlock but for a great last-ditch block.

20:02 , Marc Mayo

2 mins: Jeers from around the Olympic Stadium as the visitors settle into some passing moves about 35 yards from the Kiev goal.

Kick-off!

We’re underway in Ukraine!

19:30 , Malik Ouzia

A reminder of what’s at stake for Barcelona this evening, then. In a way they’re quite fortunate that Bayern Munich look like they’re going to run away with this group, so despite having lost two of their first three games, Barca are very much in the mix to reach the last-16.

With second-placed Benfica facing Bayern tonight, Barca know that there’s every chance that victory will lift them above the Portuguese side into second in the group.

It looks a chilly evening in Ukraine...

Standard Sport prediction

18:28 , Malik Ouzia

With an out-of-form Barcelona side down the bare bones, it’s difficult to see them improving on their recent form. The meeting between the two at the Camp Nou was tight and, given they’re missing players, perhaps it’s wise to expect a similar affair.

0-0 draw.

Barcelona team news

18:12 , Malik Ouzia

The club have recently confirmed Gerard Pique - who scored against Kiev in the last round - will be out for the foreseeable future while there was concern over Sergio Aguero, who was taken to hospital amid breathing difficulties in the recent draw with Alaves.

Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Ronald Araujo, Frenkie De Jong, Pedri and Martin Braithwaite are all unavailable.
