  • BACK-TO-BACK

    Dynamo Kiev have won just one of their last 12 UEFA Champions League games (D4 L7), beating Besiktas 6-0 in December 2016.

    The Ukrainian side are looking to avoid losing three consecutive matches in the competition for the first time since losing all six group stage games in 2007-08.

  • TOP FORM

    Juventus – who have already qualified for the round of 16 – have lost just two of their last 26 group stage home games in the UEFA Champions League (W16 D8), though one of those defeats came this season (vs Barcelona).

  • PREVIOUS MEETING

    Juventus came out on top the last time the two sides met.

  • VENUE CHECK

    Juventus are playing at home tonight at the Juventus Stadium.

  • AWAY DAYS

    Dynamo Kiev have only won one of their 12 previous away games against Italian sides in major European competition (D5 L6), a 3-0 win at Roma in the 2004-05 UEFA Champions League group stage.

  • TABLE CHECK

    Juventus are trailing Barcelona by three points and a considerable amount of goals.

    They'll need a Barca slip up if they're going to snatch top spot.

    Dynamo are just about holding onto third spot by one goal, they'll be looking to limit the amount of goals conceded tonight.

  • HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Juventus have won four of their previous five meetings with Dynamo Kiev in all competitions (D1), with each coming in the UEFA Champions League between 1998 and 2020.

    No Ukrainian side has ever beaten Juventus in the UEFA Champions League, with the Italian club winning five and drawing two of seven such games.

  • GOOD EVENING 

    And welcome to the live blog for Juventus vs Dynamo Kyiv.

    The Old Lady are sat second in their Champions League, three points behind group leaders Barcelona.

    A high-scoring win tonight against Dynamo could keep them in the hunt for the top spot, but they’ll have to hope Barca slip up with a draw or a loss.

    Inconsistent is the best way to describe Juventus under club legend Andrea Pirlo, they find themselves six points adrift 1st place AC Milan in the Serie A – dropping points in games they should be winning.

    Juventus have been dependent on superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, winning only one of the five games played without him.

    With Juventus’ place secured in the knockout stages of the Champions League, Pirlo could field a weakened team allowing Ronaldo to miss another game.

    Merih Demiral and Giorgio Chiellini are both still out with muscle injuries.

    And should Gianluigi Buffon get a rare start, he would equal Paul Scholes' 124 appearances in the competition.

    Kyiv have Oleksandr Tymchyk out with a muscle problem while Mykyta Burda is sidelined with an Achilles injury.

    The full team news will follow shortly, so don’t go anywhere!
