  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Dynamo Kiev
    • FC Porto
    • 90+3' FULL TIME: KIEV 0-0 PORTO. Thanks for joining us and sorry about the lack of entertainment out there!
    • 90+2' Otamendi plays it straight out. It’s been one of those nights. Scrappy. And with the home side attacking and in a great position, one of the home fans runs onto the pitch and ruins their move!
    • 90+1' Porto sub: Kléber on for Rodríguez.
    • 90' Three added minutes here.
    • 89' Rodríguez plays it to Lucho but he drags his shot wide. Half chance there.
    • 88' Brown tries to engineer something in the box but Otamendi does well to win it back.
    • 87' Kiev sub: Kranjčar on for Vukojević
    • 86' A lot of endeavor out there but little quality.
    • 85' PSG now 4-0 up so Porto will be happy with a point. Kiev all but out.
    • 84' Rodríguez shoots from outside the box but it’s well blocked by Veloso.
    • 83' Great ball over the top for Brown and Helton is out really early to casually chest down and take it past him!
    • 82' Ba concedes a corner but it’s given the other way! Unlucky Kiev.
    • 81' Martínez fouled and the referee plays advantage but Kiev win it back. Good running from Gusev but Ba across well.
    • 80' Into the last ten minutes and will we yet get a goal?
    • 79' PSG now 3-0 up against Dinamo Zagreb.
    • 79' And Castro comes on to replace him.
    • 78' A bit of a stoppage as Defour gets some treatment.
    • 77' Veloso shoots but it’s tame and trickles into Helton’s arms. Defour is down.
    • 76' Kiev getting a little momentum now and they know they need something. Yarmolenko looking threatening.
    • 75' Officially eight attempts on target each but that stat seems very generous!
    • 74' Porto sub: Atsu on for Varela.
    • 74' Long range effort from Lucho flies wide. Optimistic.
    • 73' Veloso plays it in and it’s a good delivery but Yarmolenko’s header is straight at Helton.
    • 72' Haruna wins another free kick, this time off Defour.
    • 70' Veloso plays in the free kick and Martínez turns defender, heading clear. Porto break but Varela hits it straight at Taiwo.
    • 69' Haruna fouled by Ba and he is booked.
    • 68' Amazingly, that’s Helton’s first decent save!
    • 67' Lovely through ball from Haruna to Yarmolenko and he hits it straight at Helton. Great chance and he should have done better. Looked just offside though.
    • 66' Kiev sub: Brown on for Ruben
    • 65' Rodríguez and Moutinho combine but it’s out for a goal kick.
    • 64' Lucho exasperated as he is adjudged not to have kept the ball in.
    • 63' Bad news for Kiev fans as PSG go 2-0 up. Rodríguez trying his best to get things going and engineer something for Porto.
    • 62' Moutinho takes the free kick and it deflects off Haruna’s head and wide of the post. Could have gone anywhere.
    • 61' Haruna concedes a free kick in a dangerous area after bringing down Rodríguez. Chance now.
    • 60' Well, apart from that first five minutes, it’s gone back to a bit of a stalemate here. Half an hour to go.
    • 59' Haruna in to the action and wins a free kick off Defour. Looked a dive.
    • 58' A very optimistic effort from Vukojević from well outside the box sails over the bar.
    • 57' Kiev sub: Haruna on for Milevskiy.
    • 56' Good defending from Danilo prevents Gusev getting past him in the box.
    • 55' A bad ball by Veloso and it’s out for a goal kick. Poor.
    • 54' Mangala caught offside as Brown warms up for Kiev.
    • 53' Varela beats Betao and gets a good cross in. Rodríguez eventually gets it on the right and shoots on goal. Easy for Koval. Foul by Ba on Ruben. Free kick.
    • 52' Back come Kiev and Yarmolenko hits it straight at Helton when there were three white shirts in the middle. Disappointing.
    • 51' There has been more action in the first six minutes of the second half than all of the first!
    • 50' A great through ball from Rodríguez to Varela and he’s through on goal but shoots just wide of the post. Finally Porto starting to create things.
    • 49' Lucho and Martínez combine really well but the final ball has just too much on it for Varela. Great build up disappointing end.
    • 48' Danilo is caught by Yarmolenko. Another free kick. This game has been punctuated by fouls.
    • 47' That was one of the best chances of the match. That’s how quiet it has been and you’d expect better form Rodríguez.
    • 46' Rodríguez overruns the ball and Khacheridi comes back well to take the ball of him. What a great chance wasted, he was through on goal.
    • 45' Let’s hope for considerably better stuff in the second half. The first was, quite frankly, awful. But Porto only need a draw and are perhaps wary of doing anything silly.
    • 45+1' HALF TIME: KIEV 0-0 PORTO
    • 45' Just one added minute in a desperately disappointing half.
    • 44' Helton comes charging out but Yarmolenko is flagged offside.
    • 43' POSSESSION: KIEV 45%-55% PORTO
    • 42' Yellow card for Milevskiy for a foul on Otamendi. A little harsh.
    • 41' Defour looks for Varela but he’s a bit slow to react and Kiev come away with the ball.
    • 40' Still only one meaningful chance to talk about. It’s been a strange half.
    • 39' Still 1-0 to PSG in the other Group A match.
    • 38' Good run from the midfield from Vukojević but he can’t quite get on the end of Yarmolenko’s cross.
    • 37' Mangala crosses in and it eventually falls back to Danilo who shins it tamely to the keeper.
    • 36' Veloso takes but it’s easily cleared.
    • 35' Ruben wins Kiev a corner.
    • 34' Great save Koval! Fantastic ball in by Rodríguez to Martínez and the keeper flings himself to his left to parry behind.
    • 33' Terrific defending from Khacheridi to break up a counter attack as Martínez and Varela try to link up.
    • 32' Varela and Taiwo have both gone down but there seemed little in that. They’re up and running about again.
    • 31' At last a corner, won by Valera. Rodríguez takes but Kiev clear easily.
    • 30' Varela goes down and wants a free kick for a challenge from Vukojević. Nothing given.
    • 29' Amazingly, still no corners or shots on goal in this match so far.
    • 28' Free kick Kiev. Veloso takes but the offside flag goes up.
    • 27' Otamendi tries to play in Martínez but Koval does very well, alert to the danger.
    • 26' Lucho feeds Danilo and Khacheridi again does well covering across.
    • 25' Danilo caught by Gusev. Free kick. There have been a lot of niggly fouls and stoppages. Not a classic so far.
    • 24' Yarmolenko working very hard down the right. He wins a throw.
    • 23' Gusev caught offside this time.
    • 22' Still neither keeper has been called upon to make a save.
    • 21' Great spell of possession from Porto. Lucho flicks on to Martínez and he’s flagged offside as he smashes it over the bar.
    • 20' Moutinho swings it in but Kiev clear. Porto still pressing.
    • 19' Milevskiy brought down by Danilo. Free kick. Porto clear the danger. Rodríguez fouled by Vukojević. Yellow card.
    • 18' PSG have gone ahead so not good news for Kiev fans.
    • 16' Lucho nearly puts in Martínez but Koval is out well. Good covering from Mikhalik too.
    • 15' Porto beginning to get more possession now. Martínez makes room for the shot but it’s blocked on the edge of the box.
    • 14' The fans trying to keep warm by singing and dancing. It’s been fairly sedate stuff so far.
    • 13' Oleh Blokhin watches on from the stands. He has recently turned 60 and a win would be a nice present.
    • 12' Gusev fouled by Ba. Free kick.
    • 11' Varela easily dispossessed on the right and back come Kiev again. Gusev caught offside.
    • 10' The game just beginning to settle into a rhythm. Porto willing to concede possession and play on the break.
    • 9' It’s played in and Martínez nearly gets a shot away. Nervy moments for Kiev.
    • 8' Rodríguez gets away from Khacheridi down the right and is then fouled. Free kick Porto.
    • 7' All Kiev at the moment but Porto won’t mind too much as they play so well on the counter.
    • 6' More good play on the left. Vukojević has a half chance in the box and appeals for hand ball off Mangala. Nothing given.
    • 5' Frenetic start here. The home team closing down Porto very quickly, not letting them settle on the ball.
    • 4' Yarmolenko in space on the right and he crosses into the box. Lucho clears the danger.
    • 3' Nice little touch from Defour but he can’t quite find Martínez. Porto looking sharp already but Kiev win a throw. Otamendi fouled. Free kick.
    • 2' Kiev have set up 4-2-3-1, Porto 4-3-3. Kiev win an early free kick. Chance to swing one into the box. Veloso takes but Moutinho heads clear.
    • 1' Spanish referee Alberto Undiano blows the whistle to get us underway here. Remember, Kiev almost certainly need a win to keep their qualification hopes alive. Porto only need a draw to secure qualification with two games to spare. We will, of course, keep you up to date with the other match in Group A.
    • 19.40 Five minutes to kick off here. MATCH ODDS: Dynamo Kiev (13/8), Porto (17/10), Draw (23/10).
    • 19.35 Expect goals tonight. Porto have not drawn away from home in Europe since April 2009, a run of 16 games with 10 wins and six defeats.
    • 19.30 Dynamo have lost eight and won three of their 11 Champions League games against Portuguese opponents and drawn their two matches (against Braga) in the Europa League.
    • 19.25 Kiev can still qualify for the knockout stages but a win is vital tonight as they sit three points behind Paris Saint-Germain who host rock bottom Dinamo Zagreb tonight. Check out the Group A standings, results and fixtures
    • 19.20 Porto are the runaway group leaders, having won all of their three matches played. Last time the sides met, Porto were 3-2 winners in the Estadio do Dragao. Read the match report here.
    • 19.15 Porto will be confident, however. The group leaders have played away against Dynamo Kiev on two occasions, winning both games 2-1. The Portuguese side are unbeaten away from home in the Ukraine, winning three times and drawing one (Two victories over Dynamo and a win and a draw v Shakhtar).
    • 19.10 Kiev are unbeaten in their last 10 European home games (excluding qualifiers) winning five and drawing five and have scored one goal in each of their six European home ties against Portuguese opponents.
    • 19.05 Vítor Pereira: "The match will be challenging for both sides. We know the class of the Dynamo players and we saw at the Estádio do Dragão that they can play really good football. They have great individuals but they are also strong as a team. We will need to give all we have to avoid defeat in Kyiv. I like Dynamo and I don't want them to be knocked out at this stage of the tournament, especially since it is their coach's 60th birthday. We wish him good health and many happy returns."
    • 19.00 Oleh Blokhin: "Of course, it's going to be very hard but we need nothing but a win if we want to keep our chances in the group alive. If we don't beat Porto and PSG in the next match, we can forget about the knockout stage. We are still thinking about our tactics but I think we will not play with three holding midfielders like we did in Porto. Anyway, even the best tactics will not do if the players don't work as a team."
