Dynamo Kyiv vs Besiktas
UEFA Champions League – Group B
Date: Tuesday, 6th December 2016.
Kick-off at 19:45 UK.
Venue: NSC Olimpiyskiy, Kiev.
Dynamo Kyiv have nothing to lose as they welcome Besiktas to NSC Olimpiyskiy on Tuesday night. They will be playing for pride as they are already out of Europe’s competitions this season.
Kyiv are winless in their 5 Champions League group outings this season, they have lost 3 and drawn 2. They’re on the foot of the group B table with just two points and have no hopes of qualification no matter the result. Kyiv are already condemned to draw, but can bow out with huge respect if they win this fixture.
Meanwhile, Besiktas may make their first Champions League knockout round debut if they win this game. They are just a point behind Benfica and Napoli and a win will automatically qualify them irrespective of the other result. Also Besiktas have a chance of qualifying if they draw this game provided the other game produces a winner.
