Dynamo Kiev-FCB: Did you know that…


This is the fourth time that the two teams have met in official competitions in the Ukraine, with two wins for each team so far. The game has many interesting facts surrounding it, which maybe you didn't know!

Group F is the only group in which all four teams are still in with a chance of qualifying for the next round and all of them depend solely on their own results. Barca will go through with a win, a draw or even a defeat by a single gola or two if they score themselves.

- That day the Barca keeper was Carles Busquets – Sergio's father.

- As a player, Guardiola twice visited Dynamo, both times in Europe's top competition: winning 0-2 in 1991/92 and losing 3-1 two seasons later. 

-  It's been 10 years since Dynamo made it out of the Champions League Group stages.

- Barca have been unbeaten away from home in Europe for their last eight games.
