Benfica needs a win here to proceed to the knockout rounds of the campaign. They would however need Barcelona to drop points against Bayern at the Allianz Arena to do so. 

Kiev on the other hand will not continue in any of the European competitions this year. No matter what happens in this fixture they will finish bottom of the group.

Benfica vs Dinamo Kiev Head-to-head

  • The Eagles have won thrice and lost once in 5 previous duels.
  • They have kept clean sheets in the last 4 h2h games.
  • 2 or fewer goals were scored in 4 of the 5 fixtures.
  • The visitors have failed to take any points from this venue.

Analysis

The hosts have largely had a comfortable season but their huge losses against Bayern has interfered with their run of form. 

They were undefeated in 8 domestic games leading into the weekend but suffered a 1-3 loss at home against cross-town rivals Sporting. They are now 3rd in the league, 4 points from the top of the table. 

Dynamo Kiev has been in marvellous form in the league. They have lost just once in the season and have added 44 points to their name. 

However, they have been matched by the excellent performances of Shakhtar Donetsk who are level on points with them but ahead in 1st place on goal difference.

Benfica vs Dinamo Kiev Prediction

The Glorious Ones have kept 11 clean sheets already and will face a side that has scored just 1 goal in the Champions League so far. Despite their loss against Sporting this weekend, their previous matches exhibit the form they are in and should be able to win without conceding.

Darwin Núñez has scored 3 of the 5 goals that his team has managed in the campaign. The Uruguayan has made 10 goal contributions for his side already in the season and is likely to find the back of the net this Wednesday.
