Benfica team news
Benfica had the worst possible build up to their crunch Champions League match, losing 3-1 at home to bitter rivals Sporting CP on Friday night to lose ground in the Primeira Liga title race. But that must all be put to one side now as the Eagles look to reach the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time since 2016/17. It’s not an easy ask for Benfica, who must beat Dynamo Kyiv to even stand a chance of overtaking Barcelona at the final hurdle. They also require Barcelona to lose to Bayern, as a draw would not be good enough due to Benfica’s worse record in the head-to-head with the Blaugrana. Anything other than wins for Benfica and Bayern and the Portuguese side will be destined for the Europa League.
Benfica predicted XI: Vlachodimos; Almeida, Vertonghen, Otamendi; Lazaro, Joao Mario, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa, Nunez, Everton.
Dynamo Kyiv team news
There is nothing but pride on the line for the visitors on Wednesday with Dynamo Kyiv unable to move off the bottom of Group E. The Ukrainian side have earned just one point from their opening five matches, holding Benfica to a goalless draw in the first matchweek. Since then it has been four straight defeats, with nine goals conceded and just one scored, meaning Dynamo Kyiv miss out on the Champions League knockout stage yet again. Their last appearance past the group stage in this competition game in 2015/16 when they were knocked out of the last 16 by Manchester City.
Dynamo Kyiv predicted XI: Bushchan; Kedziora, Zabarnyi, Syrota, Mykolenko; Sydorchuk, Shaparenko; Tsygankov, Shaparenko, Pena; Garmash.
