Dynamo Kiev vs Barcelona LIVE! Champions League

Barcelona sit third in Group E after a troubling start to the season, and that alongside their poor domestic form has cost Ronald Koeman his job.

The 1-0 win at home against Dynamo Kiev in Koeman’s final Champions League match in charge at least got the Spanish side off the mark in Europe for the season, but they are six points behind Bayern Munich already.

Life under interim manager Sergi Barjuan got off to an inauspicious start over the weekend, with a 1-1 draw at home to Alaves.

Barcelona travel to Ukraine needing to find some form quickly to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.

Dynamo Kiev held Benfica to a goalless draw at home earlier in the group stage, and have the potential to provide another tough test for an injury-hit Barcelona side.
