However, Kiev are unbeaten in their last two matches at home in the Champions League having registered one draw and one win as the hosts. 
Meanwhile, Barcelona will be confident of making it two wins in a row when they lock horns with a wounded Kiev side. 
The win over Kiev ended the Spanish football powerhouse's five-match winless run in the Champions League having recorded four defeats and one draw.

"These three points were the most important thing," Gerard Pique, the Barcelona central defender, said as he reacted to their win over Kiev. 
"After the first two group games, with no points and no goals, this victory was so important to give ourselves a chance to be in the mix until the end of the group stage. 
"I think we did well, although we need to do better. Dynamo didn't get a single effort on target, but that's because they were very defensive – that was difficult for us."
The last time Kiev hosted Barcelona in a Champions League match was on 24 November 2020. 
Barcelona emerged 4-0 winners over Kiev in a Group G match which was played at the NSK Olimpijs'ky.
