Barcelona is going through one of the worst stages in this recent history of this team. Failure 0-1 against Atletico Madrid pushed the Catalan giant to the 10th place on the La Liga rankings and the team led up to 9 points.
Barca's gameplay still depends very much on Messi
Obviously, Coach Koeman still couldn't solve the outstanding issues of Barcelona despite the president of Bartomeu resigned. Messi's future or stay is still a big question mark. Meanwhile, the game of Catalunya's giant still depends very much on the Argentinian superstar. And once the 33-year-old was blocked, Barcelona's play was easily disabled.
Fortunately, the Champions League arena is a completely different story. The Catalunya giant won all three games in Table G and the victory over Dynamo Kyiv would help them to ensure a full range of direct qualifiers for 2 matches. Remember, Barca did not lose in the Champions League group since the 2016-17 season, winning 17 and mixed 6 of the last 23 matches.
With Dynamo Kyiv, having to stay in the table with the presence of two big Barcelona and Juventus, then the third place to go down to play in Europa League is probably the best achievement they can hope. The representative of Ukraine is currently ranked 3rd in Table G with 1 point, equal to Ferencvaros.
Dynamo Kyiv will enter this match after a 2-0 victory over inhulets in the domestic league, and they are currently leading Ukrainian Premier League with 23 points after 10 rounds. In the match, Dynamo Kyiv caused a lot of difficulties for Barcelona right at the Nou Camp and only failed 1-2. And with the high-rise spirit, the Lucescu coach team could completely do better, especially when playing at home.
