    Time:90'
    • Dynamo Kiev
    • Dinamo Zagreb
    • 90+2' FULL TIME: Dynamo Kiev 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+1' Another poor ball from Zagreb. Rukavina plays it out for a Kiev goal kick.
    • 90' Only two minutes of time added on here. Kiev have totally dominated this.
    • 89' Raffael finds Taiwo but his cross too close to Kelava. A bit of a waste as he had more time.
    • 88' The match now drifting towards an inevitable conclusion and a much needed win for Kiev.
    • 87' Porto have just gone ahead against PSG so not the best news for Kiev fans. Porto v PSV
    • 86' Mehmedi crosses and veteran Šimunić puts it behind for a corner.
    • 85' Nicely taken by Rukavina but Danilo Silva tracks back well and takes it off him.
    • 84' Forward by Pivarić but the flag goes up for yet another offside. Too many for Zagreb tonight.
    • 83' This game has petered out alarmingly in the last ten minutes. Carrasco wins a corner and they must throw bodies forward.
    • 82' Kiev sub: Gusev off for Raffael, who scored his first goal for the club on Friday night, the Brazilian signing from Hertha Berlin.
    • 81' Zagreb have come back into it slightly. A poor ball by Ademi goes out for a goal kick.
    • 80' Mehmedi has ten minutes to prove his worth. The Swiss youngster supposed to be a big talent.
    • 79' Kiev sub: Yarmolenko off for Mehmedi. He’s applauded off. A good performance.
    • 79' Yarmolenko finds room to shoot but it’s straight at Kelava. Could easily have had a hat-trick tonight.
    • 78' No real conviction in the Zagreb play. If they got a goal back they could set up a big finish but it doesn’t look likely at all.
    • 77' Zagreb sub: Sammir off for Carrasco. Straight into the action with a nice touch.
    • 76' Yellow card for Vukojević for a foul on Vida.
    • 75' Into the last 15 minutes and Zagreb still well and truly on the back foot here. looks like a training exercise.
    • 74' Could be a great night for Kiev as Porto and PSG are still level. You can follow that match here.
    • 73' Great run by Rukavina down the right and he has looked lively since coming on. Totally lacking in support though.
    • 72' Free kick to Kiev taken by Veloso but Brown heads well over the bar.
    • 70' STAT: Zagreb with 12 goal attempts to Zagreb’s 3.
    • 69' It was Tonel who dithered and was caught by Brown but redeemed himself.
    • 68' Brown finds himself in a one on one with the keeper. He dinks it over but Tonel gets back in time to hook it clear. Should have been another.
    • 66' A great ball from Veloso nearly finds Garmash but he can’t quite bring it down.
    • 65' Yarmolenko lays it off to Veloso who blasts it just wide. Another chance goes begging.
    • 64' Sammir takes but it’s easy catching practice for Shovkovskiy. No pressure on the keeper whatsoever.
    • 63' Good little run from Rukavina but he’s unable to wriggle through a wall of white shirts. Cop’s cross out for a corner.
    • 62' Well it’s fair to say that Kiev could easily be 4-0 up already in this second half.
    • 61' Veloso has a great chance to play in Yarmolenko but shoots instead and it’s blocked. Another chance gone.
    • 60' Gusev ghosts past Vida and blasts his shot at goal. A good sharp save to his left from Kelava. So close to another!
    • 59' Gusev crosses to Yarmolenko but he hits his shot into the ground. Another great chance for Kiev.
    • 58' Shovkovskiy caught by Cop who charges down his clearance. It bounces towards goal but slows up and the keeper falls on it!
    • 57' Zagreb sub: Beqiraj off for Rukavina.
    • 55' Back come Kiev but a poor touch on his right foot from Yarmolenko loses possession. Sammir fouls Garmash.
    • 54' Vida onside and delivers a dangerous cross but Shovkovskiy punches clear.
    • 53' Vida does really well down the right and shrugs off Taiwo but nobody is in the box for his cross.
    • 52' All Kiev and there’s a feeling there could be more goals from the men in white. They’ve been so superior.
    • 51' Yarmolenko again in acres of space and has time to deliver a cross but it’s cleared by Zagreb.
    • 50' Garmash shown the yellow card.
    • 49' Long range effort from substitute Cop and Shovkovskiy has his first shot to save. Comfortable though.
    • 48' Kiev already looking the sharper side at the start of this second half and Brown is looking lively up front.
    • 47' Good run from Yarmolenko but his shot is way over the bar. He could have crossed that.
    • 46' Taiwo caught in possession and he went down as if injured. Nothing given.
    • 45' Zagreb sub: Cop on for Callelo.
    • 45' Kiev sub: Garmash on for Kranjčar.
    • 45' We’re back underway here. Zagreb have it all to do.
    • 45+3' HALF TIME: Dynamo Kiev 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb
    • 45+2' A half chance for Brown and then Kranjčar but they just can’t get their shots away in the box.
    • 45+1' Garmash warming up for Kiev on the sidelines. Beqiraj just fails to get to the ball before the keeper.
    • 45' There will be two added minutes here.
    • 44' Nice ball through to Brozović but Khacheridi shepherds it out well. Goal kick.
    • 43' Poor first touch from Kelava and he loses it.
    • 42' Zagreb press forward but there are now ten white shirts behind the ball for Kiev. Brown crosses for Yarmolenko and he scuffs his shot at Kelava. Could have been three!
    • 41' STAT: Kiev with 52% of possession and 4 attempts to 2.
    • 40' It’s been a relatively comfortable return to Champions League action so far for skipper Shovkovskiy in the Kiev goal.
    • 39' Yarmolenko has limped off injured now but he may come back on.
    • 38' Terrible free kick from Šimunić straight to Yarmolenko and he’s nearly punished but Brown slips in the box as the ball is played across.
    • 36' The other good news for Kiev at the moment is that the other Group A match is 0-0. You can keep track of Porto v PSG here.
    • 35' Too many cooks for Zagreb. They had plenty of men over but too many passes around the box allowed Kiev to regroup.
    • 34' It’s going to be really tough for Zagreb now and they could be on the way to a tenth successive Champions League defeat!
    • 33' Definitely a terrible mistake from Kelava and Cacic will be furious.
    • 32' GOAL Kiev! The keeper passed it straight back to Taiwo on the wing. He crossed it in and it comes off Pivarić. A catalogue of errors.
    • 31' Yarmolenko can’t quite keep it in. Throw Zagreb.
    • 30' And it nearly drifts straight into the top corner. It was dipping in from Veloso and Kelava does well to tip it over.
    • 29' Yarmolenko is fouled and Kiev have a free kick in a very dangerous position now on the edge of the box.
    • 28' Kiev have just upped the anti a little again, trying to build on that early goal. Šimunić concedes another throw. He hoped for a free kick.
    • 27' A terrible waste and the corner floats harmlessly out for a goal kick.
    • 26' Zagreb have arguably been the better side in the last ten minutes. Pivarić concedes a corner though.
    • 25' And straight up the other end it’s a good opportunity missed as the keeper comes out too far. Beqiraj skips past the keeper but Brozović couldn’t get to the cross.
    • 24' Fantastic bit of skill from Gusev to spin and flick it over his head but he doesn’t quite find Brown.
    • 23' Kelava opts to punch away the corner and it doesn’t quite fall for Kranjčar.
    • 22' After Kiev’s early dominance it’s all getting a little scrappy. Blokhin is off the bench. Silva wins a throw. Yarmolenko wins a corner.
    • 21' STAT: Kiev with 53% of possession so far.
    • 20' Brozović bundled off the ball and Kiev have a throw. Kiev have dropped slightly in intensity.
    • 19' Taiwo tries to find Kranjčar but he is flagged offside this time.
    • 18' Taiwo is fouled by Beqiraj and he didn’t need to do that. It was a poor extra touch that lost the ball in the first place.
    • 17' Sammir floats it in but it’s easily cleared by the Kiev defence.
    • 16' Beqiraj pulls wide and wins Zagreb a corner.
    • 15' Brown tries to find Veloso but it’s a poor ball. He had time and space to continue his run.
    • 14' Good pressing from Kiev in the midfield and Zagreb have to backtrack all the way up. Good work from Ademi down the right but the flag is up again against Beqiraj.
    • 13' Blokhin’s side looking comfortable in possession. Ademi clears but a flag goes up for offside.
    • 12' Ademi looks for Beqiraj and if he’d played it a fraction earlier, the striker could well have been in. Nice idea.
    • 11' Back come Kiev. Taiwo’s cross into Kranjčar well headed away.
    • 10' Zagreb at last enjoy a spell of possession. Sammir’s shot is blocked after a patient move but Vida concedes a foul.
    • 9' Brown is causing Šimunić problems and that will be a good battle to watch.
    • 8' Mikhalik fouled and Kiev get another decision. Taiwo crosses but it’s a little too deep. Kiev really bossing this though.
    • 7' Gusev goes down and the referee brandishes the yellow card to Tonel. Looked a little harsh. he will have to watch his step now.
    • 6' You sense that the Kiev side is enjoying it early on. Zagreb have hardly got out of their half and the fans are on their feet.
    • 5' Kelava claims the corner but my word do Zagreb look terribly shaky early on. The defence looks all over the shop and Kranjčar is pulling the strings.
    • 4' Another great chance. Veloso plays it into Brown and his header is tipped just over. Zagreb rattled. Corner.
    • 3' That was just too easy, a great ball in from Vukojević though.
    • 2' GOAL Kiev! Vukojević crosses in to Gusev who heads past Kelava. What a start for Blokhin.
    • 2' Kiev start well from the off, Yarmolenko storming down the flank. Both sides playing a lone striker up front. Kovačić tries to slide one through to Beqiraj but the keeper has it.
    • 1' Referee Martin Atkinson from England blows the whistle to get us underway here. You feel even at this early stage in Group A it's a crucial match for both sides..
    • 19.40 Match odds tonight: Dynamo Kiev 4/9, Dinamo Zagreb 13/2, Draw 16/5.
    • 19.35 Ten minutes to kick off and the stands are filling up quickly. Let’s hope we get a good game and a result for one of these teams tonight to end their poor Champions League run!
    • 19.30 The teams have faced each other twice before in the qualifying round of the 2003 tournament. Kiev won 3-1 at home and 2-0 away.
    • 19.25 Dinamo Zagreb have lost nine and won none of their last 10 matches in the Champions League with seven successive defeats and have shipped 19 goals in their last four Champions League matches. Something has to give tonight!
    • 19.20 Dinamo Zagreb have lost nine and won none of their last 10 matches in the Champions League with seven successive defeats and have shipped 19 goals in their last four Champions League matches. Something has to give tonight!
    • 19.15 Both teams are struggling at the foot of Group A. The Ukrainian side have won none of their last six Champions League matches (W0 D2 L4) and just two of their last 12 Champions League home matches (W2 D2 L8). Check the Group A table and results so far.
    • 19.10 Ante Cacic: "Dynamo Kyiv are under great mental pressure – that may help us. A draw would be a good result for us, because that would be an important point. We are preparing in our usual way, and although their appointment of a new coach will have a positive impact, it has changed nothing for us. We remember our 1-0 win against Dynamo in a pre-season friendly in Austria, but I don't think that result has any bearing on the game."
    • 19.05 Oleg Blokhin: "Dinamo Zagreb are a very disciplined team who largely play defensively. Having really fast wingers and full-backs, they count on quick counterattacks. They try to pack the midfield and play very tight. I watched their first match in the group [a 2-0 home loss] and must say that Porto had a very difficult time until the first goal. That's why I'm going to warn my players that we have to expect a really hard game."
    • 19.00 Dynamo sacked coach Yuri Semin nine days ago in the aftermath of Sunday's 4-1 loss to FC Shakhtar Donetsk in the Ukrainian Cup. Former Bilo-Syni striker Oleh Blokhin was quickly appointed, with tonight being his UEFA Champions League debut as a coach.
