The match

Benfica host Dynamo Kiev in their final game in Champions League Group E. They are third in the group and have to win this match to have a chance of making it into the knockout stages. A Europa League place is guaranteed but they want so much more than that. It's not in their own hands though because a Barcelona win at Bayern Munich will see the Spaniards clinch second spot in the group. Benfica have had a strange time in this group. They beat Barcelona 3-0 at home but that's their only victory. They've lost twice to Bayern, drew in Kiev and then went to Barcelona and came home with a point. The Portuguese side lost at home to Sporting last weekend but that ended a run of 10 games in which they'd only lost to Bayern. Home form in the Champions League is strong with five straight wins before losing to the Germans.

Dynamo Kiev have little to play for here. They are bottom of the group and that's where they are going to stay. They have just one point from their five games, a home draw with Benfica. The other four have all been lost and the only goal they have scored was in the 2-1 home loss to Bayern. On their travels, Kiev have lost both their group fixtures, conceding six goals and not getting a goal. Just one of their last 14 away Champions League games has been won. Back Benfica to win this game, but will it be enough to take them into the knockout stages?

Key Statistics

  • Kiev have lost both of their away games in this group without scoring a goal.
  • Benfica have won five of their last six home Champions League games.
  • Kiev have only won one of their last 14 away Champions League games.

The bet of our experts

Benfica know that even a win over Kiev might not see them qualify. They have a good home record in the Champions League and should be able to get a win over the side bottom of the group. Back Benfica to get the win here. A side bet on a win to nil can also be a winner.
