Barcelona welcome Dynamo Kyiv to Camp Nou on Wednesday evening on matchday three of the Champions League with Ronald Koeman's side already facing a crucial game at this early stage of the competition.

Two defeats from their opening two matches have left Barca bottom of Group E and another loss to the side from Ukraine would put the Catalans in real danger of missing out of the knockout stages.

Barcelona vs Dynamo Kyiv first goalscorer

The Liga side are yet to score in the Champions League this season but will be confident of ending that barren run on Wednesday evening.

Sergio Aguero made his Barcelona debut in the weekend win over Valencia and is the shortest-priced player along with Memphis Depay to break the deadlock at 3/1 (4.00).

Ansu Fati has been in excellent scoring form since returning from injury and is priced at 9/2 (5.50) while for the visitors Victor Tsyganov is available at 11/1 (12.00).

Barcelona vs Dynamo Kyiv preview

There is plenty of pressure on the Catalans coming into the game with the hosts knowing they have little margin for error given their back-to-back 3-0 defeats against Bayern Munich and Benfica respectively.

In theory Dynamo Kyiv are the weakest side in the group yet the Ukrainians caused Barca plenty of problems last season and will be hoping to capitalise on their opponents missing both Eric Garcia and Ronald Araujo in defence.

Barca have kept just two clean sheets in 10 matches so far this term and opposing them to keep the visitors at bay on what could be a nervy night at Camp Nou should appeal.
