Benfica need to beat Dynamo Kiev in their final Group E assignment on Wednesday and hope that Barcelona either lose or draw against Bayern Munich in the Bavarian capital to advance to the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Portuguese club are currently two points behind the Catalans but they have an edge in head-to-head points. The first meeting between Benfica and Dynamo Kiev back in September ended in a goalless draw. Should they fail in their mission, they will continue their journey in the Europa League.

Benfica have won three of their last five matches in all competitions. The Eagles drew 0-0 at Barcelona in the last round which gives them hope to reach the knockout rounds for the first time since the 2016-17 season.

Jorge Jesus’ side returned to the Primeira Liga, winning 7-0 at half time at Belenenses before the game was abandoned. Benfica are coming off a 3-1 defeat against Sporting CP in the Lisbon derby. 

Rodrigo Pinho, Lucas Veríssimo, Diogo Gonçalves and Nemanja Radonjic are injured.

Dynamo Kiev have lost their last four matches in the Champions League and have nothing to play for here.

Mircea Lucescu’s side have won three straight in the Ukraine Premier League, all away from home. Dynamo triumphed 6-1 at Chornomorets, 2-0 at Minai and 3-0 at Veres Rivne.

Ibrahim Kargbo, Vladyslav Supriaga, Artem Besedin and Denys Popov are injured and will not feature here.

We are backing Benfica to win to nil in this contest.
