LIVE: Barcelona vs Dynamo Kiev – Gerard Pique gives Catalans the lead in MUST-win Champions League clash at Nou Camp after heavy defeats in their opening two matches for Ronald Koeman’s side
A beleaguered Barcelona are desperate for a win against Dynamo Kiev as they face an early exit from the Champions League after defeat in their opening two matches has left them bottom of Group E.
Under-pressure Ronald Koeman passed the first of a series of tests that will help him keep his job at the Nou Camp with Sunday’s 3-1 victory over his former club Valencia.
But tonight presents a much more significant fixture as usually at this stage in the competition three games in Barcelona would be looking to add easy points to secure qualification, instead they’re facing a battle to keep their campaign alive.
Barcelona will be without the suspended Eric Garcia following his red card against Benfica on matchday two, while Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, Martin Braithwaite and Ronald Araujo remain sidelined through injury.
