Parc des Princes - Paris
Referee:‬ Pieter Vink (NED)‎
90′ +3
There goes the final whistle! Neither side will be too pleased with the result, but PSG will at least be relieved to have denied Dynamo an away goal, while the visitors should be satisfied to take the tie back home for the second leg on a level playing field. Final score, it's PSG-0 Dynamo Kiev-0.
90′ +2
Rothen pumps a long, hopeful freekick from 40 yards out but Bogush easily gathers it.
90′ +1
Three minutes will be added on. PSG make one last burst in search of a winning goal.
Kezman is bundled over just inside the box and he looks to the officials for a penalty, but the ref waves play on!
Sessegnon's involvement is over as Le Guen sends in Pancrate to give his side some fresh legs in the closing stages of the game.
Substitution Stéphane Sessegnon Fabrice Pancrate
Sessegnon does well to win a freekick after Sabljic clattered into him from behind. Sessegnon takes the freekick himself on the left channel and swings it towards goal directly but it flies over the bar!
Correa has been stretchered off with what looks like a muscle injury. Gusev has been sent in instead as Dynamo look to see out the final minutes of the game without conceding.
Substitution Correa Ole Gusev
Sessegnon chests down Chantome's cross... SESSEGNON RATTLES IN A VOLLEYYYY... just wide!!
EREMENKOOOOO... blasts in a low shot just outside the box but it trickles wide of Landreau's right post.
Sessegnon tries to waltz his way past Betao down the left but again, he trips after tangling with his own foot!
SESSEGNONNNNN... sweeps in a freekick from 25 yards out but he couldn't make it dip under the bar!
Substitution Guillaume Hoarau Jean-Eudes Maurice
Yuri Semin has sent in Cernat for the lively Aliyev. Eremenko angles in a low cross from the right for Milevskiy at the far post and Camara is forced to scramble it out for a corner, but the ball came off his shin and it almost ended up in the back of his own net.
Ceara dinks in a cross from the right for KEZMANNNN... who tries to execute a bicycle kick but he fails to connect cleanly!
Sessegnon has a chance to spring forward on a rare counter attack, but he gets his footing tangled up as he is tries to outpace El Kaddouri.
The home crowd are getting rather restless as their side labour to get the ball out of their own half at times.
Eremenko drills in a cross-cum-shot from the right and Landreau is left flailing away but the effort sails wide of the far post!
PSG are still struggling to get into the attacking rhythm they showed in the first half.
Substitution Péguy Luyindula Mateja Kežman
Paul Le Guen will make his first change of the game as he sends in Mateja Kezman for Luyindula, who has been extremely quiet upfront.
HOARAUUUU... sweeps in a right-footed shot from a tight angle on the left channel but it only ripples the side of the net!!
The Parisiens have yet to venture into the opposing half. It's all been Dynamo so far as they pepper the PSG goal with shots from distance having struggled to break down their opponents with through balls in the first half.
VUKOJEVICCCC... tries his luck from distance with a clean shot from 25 yards out but Landreau again was equal to the task, diving to his left to fist it away!
ALIYEVVVV... sweeps in a curling shot from 20 yards out and Landreau had to dive at full stretch to his right to palm the ball away!
The Ukrainians are again making a bright start to the half. Correa and Eremenko are seeing plenty of the ball on the right wing but none of their crosses have been too bothersome for Landreau.
We're back for the second half. Sessegnon and Hoarau will get the restart underway for PSG.
45′ +1
There goes the half-time whistle! PSG created the better scoring opportunities and could easily have gone a goal or two up. Dynamo have had to rely on half-chances despite starting and ending the half the stronger. But at the break, it's 0-0!
Only one minute of time will be added on. Dynamo are definitely ending the half the stronger as they continue to pass the ball around inside the PSG half, looking for an opening.
The intensity has died down a little as PSG are pinned back while Dynamo charge forward, but they are not creating much at the moment as the hosts really tighten up at the back.
Dynamo are enjoying a nice spell of possession just outside the PSG box, but they can't find that killer final pass.
MILEVSKYYYYY.... drills in a swerving shot on the edge of the area but it just shaves the top of the bar! Landreau looked beaten!
The PSG players will be looking to impress with national team coach, Raymond Domenech watching from the stands.
Chantome looks like he's been knock out cold as El Kaddouri's smashes his foot right into his face as he attempts an overhead clearance. PSG have a freekick inside the box out on the right but they can't make the most of it.
ROTHEN IS THROUGH ON GOAL... Rothen rifles in a shot from the right channel inside the box but Bogush dives to his left to make the save at his near post!!
CHANTHOMMMMME... fires in a first time shot from six yards out but BOGUSH MAKES A SUPERB REFLEX SAVE TO PARRY IT AWAY!! It was Sessegnon who danced his way down the left flank to the byline inside the box before squaring it back for Chantome!
Rothen arros in a diagonal freekick on the left wing, hoping for a team-mate to just get a touch to the ball to steer it in but it bobbles all the way into Bogush's arms.
The game is opening up now as both sides try to improvise in attack, but it's very much PSG who are in control at the moemnt.
SESSEGNONNNNNN... smashes a first time piledriver on the edge of the are just over the bar!! Horau teed him up for the shot but the pass was a tad heavy and Sessgnon had to take it unprepared!
Aliyev goes for a tame curling shot from 20 yards out but it sails straight at Landreau!
Sessegnon wriggles into open space down the left... SESSEGNON IS IN... he takes the ball towards the byline and steps onto his right foot but his shot smacks into the side netting!! Luyindula was waiting for him in the middle and screaming for the ball!!
LUYINDULA IS IN.... HE SKIPS INTO THE BOX but Sabljic does brilliantly to backtrack and force him wide and onto the byline and eventually play it backwards to a teammate.
Rothen tries a similar move as he looks to release Horau down the left channel but not for the first time, the pass is too heavy. That seems to be the theme at the moment. A lot of through balls on the ground which can't seem to find the targte!
El Kaddouri brings the ball out of the back for Dynamo and tries to thread a through pass to Milevsky but Camara does well to step up and intercept.
There's a very rowdy atmosphere at the Parc des Princes as the home fans try to lift their team and the game. Rothen whips in a low cross from the left and it almost falls for Chantome but Yussuf just beats him to the ball to clear it!
Neither side are really taking an initiative to attack the opposing goal. Sessegnon brings the ball down expertly from defence and slips in Chantome into the box but the through pass was overhit!
Makonda clatters into the back of Correa and Dynamo win another freekick just outside the area. They take it short, though, and try to work it in, but the move breaks down.
PSG are slowly getting into the game now. They have a freekick from 30 yards out. It's scooped over the wall for Luyindula to chase down but it's just too heavy. The idea was there... but not the execution.
Aliev swings in a corner from the right away from goal and Landreau had to come out a long way to get a good fist at it to punch it clear.
Dynamo are on the attack early. They have a freekicki right on the edge of the box but Aliyev sends his shot just over the bar!
Refereee this evening is Piete Vink and he signals for Dynamo Kiev to get this contest underway!
