Commentary

That's all from me, Matthew Judge, and it has been a great pleasure talking you through all of tonight's action from Portugal. We hope you can join us again very soon. Take care!
Dynamo Kiev keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions knockout stages alive as they pick up a 2-0 win over Porto at the Estadio do Dragao. Yarmolenko and an own goal from Casillas hand the Ukrainians all three points, meaning Porto now have to avoid defeat against Chelsea on matchday six to reach the last 16. 
FULL TIME: PORTO 0-2 DYNAMO KIEV
ALMOST A GOAL! Osvaldo flicks the ball on towards Andre who engineers half a yard for himself brilliantly, before he smashes a shot just wide of the target from distance. Dynamo are on the breakaway now. So unlucky for the hosts. 
FOUL! Shovkovskiy punts the ball forward towards Teodorczyk who concedes a foul as he barges into the side of Marcano. The referee keeps his cards in his pocket as Porto look to play the ball forward. 
The fourth official on the touchline indicates that a minimum of five minutes of time is being added on here at the Estadio do Dragao. Porto are trying to push for a late goal, and the clock is on their side, but Dynamo are digging in well at the moment. 
Porto just can't get hold of the ball at the moment as Dynamo keep possession neat and tidy inside their own half. The Ukrainians have barely had to break a sweat in all honesty in the second half and the hosts are heading towards their first defeat in the Champions League this season.
Ł. Teodorczyk
Júnior Moraes
Dynamo Kyiv
Rebrov makes his third and final change of the night for Dynamo as he takes off Moraes, who seems to have picked up an injury complaint in the dying minutes in Porto, and replaces him with Teodorczyk late on. 
Teodorczyk is stripped and ready to come on for Dynamo now as it appears Moraes can't continue for Dynamo. You could hear a pin drop inside the Dragao now as the home supporters head towards the exits. It's been a hugely disappointing night for them. 
V. Buyalskyy
S. Sydorchuk
Dynamo Kyiv
Rebrov makes his second change of the game for Dynamo as he takes off Sydorchuk, who put in a good shift in front of his side's backline this evening, and replaces him with Buyalskyy late on. 
A suspension in play occurs as Moraes pulls up with a complaint. As he tries to burst into the box, Marcano mops up the ball for Porto but the Dynamo striker appears to be in a bit of pain at the moment. Still 2-0 to the visitors. 
Moraes tries to steam forward yet again for his side in Porto's half but Layun tracks him closely, before the Mexico international brings down for a free-kick. The Dynamo striker has worked his socks off all night and has been superb to watch. 
Belhanda gets his first touch of the ball for Dynamo as he spins in a corner towards the middle of the penalty area, but Marcano rises highest inside the box and clears away the danger for Porto. 10 minutes left of normal time for the hosts to find a goal. 
Y. Belhanda
D. González
Dynamo Kyiv
Rebrov makes his first change of the game for Dynamo as he takes off Gonzalez, who has been absolutely oustanding for his side tonight, and replaces him with Belhanda as we approach the dying stages of the match. 
ALMOST 1-2! Andre drives into the penalty area for Porto and as he smashes a low cross towards the six-yard box, Dragovic stretches out a leg and diverts the ball at the near post before it runs clear. A lucky escape for the visitors. 
Tello picks up the ball from Neves down the left-hand side and as he spins in a good cross towards the near post, Khacheridi makes an easy clearance with no Porto player gambling to get on the end of it. Dynamo are still in control. 
With Chelsea currently leading Maccabi Tel-Aviv 3-0 in the other Group G fixture, everything is being set up perfectly for a mouth-watering clash on matchday six between the Blues and Porto at Stamford Bridge at the moment. As things stand, that game would be winner goes through. 
Porto are dominating the ball still but are creating fairly little with it in the final third at the moment. Shovkovskiy has had a relatively easy night between the sticks for Dynamo this evening. Lopetegui's men are running out of time to turn things around. 
Lopetegui has brought on fresh blood to try and swerve the game in Porto's favour but the current scoreline is playing right into Dynamo's hands. They're more than happy to soak up pressure now and counter attack with Yarmolenko and Gonzalez. 
S. Sydorchuk
Yellow Card
Dynamo Kyiv
Sydorchuk gets his name taken by the referee as he makes a poor challenge in the middle of the park. The Dynamo man accepts the caution and rushes straight into the box to defend the free-kick. 
Gonzalez tries to cause Danilo more problems in a one-v-one situation down the left but as he tries to get infield, Layun gets back in time to snuff the ball away from the Dynamo winger. Good defending from him. 
Jesús Corona
G. Imbula
Porto
Lopetegui makes his third and final change of the game for Porto this evening as he takes off Imbula, who gave away the penalty in the first half for a challenge on Rybalka right on the edge of the box, and replaces him with Corona. 
D. Osvaldo
Y. Brahimi
Porto
Lopetegui makes his second change of the game for Porto this evening as he takes off Brahimi, who played well in the first half but was quiet in the second half, and replaces him with Osvaldo just after the hour mark. 
CLOSE! Gonzalez drives forward again down the left and as he cuts inside, he chooses to ignore the advances of Moraes and fires a wicked shot over the crossbar from distance. Porto are absolutely all over the place at the moment. 
D. González
Goal
Dynamo Kyiv
GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLL!! It's 2-0 to Dynamo! Gonzalez surges forward past Andre into the Porto box and as he smashes a shot at Casillas, the Spaniard poorly tips the ball into his own net to allow the Ukrainians to double their lead. Woeful goalkeeping. 
Sydorchuk gives away a free-kick as he brings down Imbula inside his own half. Substitute Andre steps up for Porto but he fails to hit the target with his effort on goal. The home fans are starting to become restless with their side at the moment. 
WIDE! Moraes bursts down the left-hand side and plays the ball through Danilo's legs, before he blasts a curling effort just wide of the far post from a tight angle. Dynamo are continuing to look the more dangerous side going forward at the moment. 
Martins Indi digs out a cross from the left towards Aboubakar who nods the ball forward towards the back post, but nobody in a Porto shirt looks to try and get on the end of it as Khacheridi smashes away the danger. 
Sydorchuk mops up possession inside his own half and sprays a pass forward towards Yarmolenko. The Dynamo star man gets half a yard in the middle of the park and tries to feed a ball through to Gonzalez but Layun intercepts well to get Porto back on top. 
Yarmolenko tries to get around Martins Indi down the right-hand side but the Porto defender gets his body in the way brilliantly and sees out the danger. The Dynamo man will find it much tougher to get in behind him like he did with Layun in the first half. 
Tello collects the ball from Andre just outside the Dynamo penalty area. The Barcelona loanee uses Dragovic as a shield and tries to bend the ball around the defender, but his left-footed effort flies wide of the target.
Layun switches to right-back to replace Pereira and gets his first touch of the ball in his new position in the second half. Martins Indi comes across to left-back as Danilo drops into defence to accomodate for the introduction of Andre in midfield. 
Martins Indi chases after a loose ball as he tries to keep Porto in possession but Danilo Silva tracks him closely, before he brings down the Dutchman with a mistimed challenge in the middle of the park. 
André André
M. Pereira
Porto
Lopetegui makes his first substituion of the game for Porto as he takes off Maxi Pereira, who played okay in the first half but was struggling against Gonzalez in spells, and brings on Andre Andre for the second period. 
Welcome back! Dynamo get us under way again here at the Estadio do Dragao. Lopetegui makes his first change of the game for Porto as he takes off Pereira and brings on Andre for the second period. 
Porto dominated possession for most of the first half as the likes of Brahimi and imbula tried their luck with long-range efforts. Dynamo settled into the game soon after and Yarmolenko converted a cool penalty when they were on top minutes after Garmash struck the post with a solid header. 
Both sets of players head down the tunnel for the half-time interval as Dynamo lead Porto by one goal to nil at the moment. Yarmolenko's 35th-minute penalty has the sides separated so far after Imbula was judged to have brought down Rybalka inside the box. 
HALF TIME: PORTO 0-1 DYNAMO KIEV
The fourth official on the touchline indicates that a minimum of one minute is being added onto the first half here in Portugal. Porto are pushing for an equaliser but aren't managing to get many shots on target to test Shovkovskiy's resolve. 
JUST OVER! Yarmolenko twists Layun inside out down the right-hand side and as he shifts the ball from left to right, he powers an effort over the crossbar beyond Casillas. The Dynamo winger has been terrific in this opening period. 
Porto are continuing to dominate possession but Aboubakar has had little service into him in this first half. The Portuguese giants are being forced to try their luck with several pot shots from distance as a result of Dynamo's solid organisation. 
NO PENALTY! Whistles sound around the Dragao as the home supporters ask for a penalty but the referee ignores their appeals for a spot-kick. A long ball forward sees Khacheridi chest the ball back to Shovkovskiy, but the Portuguese fans claim it came off his arm. 
D. Harmash
Yellow Card
Dynamo Kyiv
Periera tries to drive forward down the right-hand side for Porto but Garmash tracks him all the way, before he brings him down for a foul inside Dynamo's half. The referee chooses not to stop there as he books the midfielder for the challenge as well. 
Lopetegui cuts a confused figure on the touchline here at the Dragao as Porto fall a goal behind on home soil. There was slight confusion about whether the referee had initially given a penalty or not as Imbula's challenge was right on the edge of his own box. 
Danilo Silva
Yellow Card
Dynamo Kyiv
Danilo Silva becomes the second man to go into the referee's book as he makes a silly challenge in his own half on Brahimi. Dynamo are in control of the game at the moment and that has forced Porto to try and increase the tempo in their passing. 
A. Yarmolenko
Penalty Goal
Dynamo Kyiv
GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!! It's 1-0 to Dynamo! Yarmolenko makes no mistake from the spot as he waits for Casillas to move, before he powers home a comfortable penalty to put the Ukrainians in front. 
PENALTY TO DYNAMO! Rybalka goes down under a challenge from Imbula inside the penalty area and the referee points straight to the spot. 
Imbula lets a pass from Neves run through his legs with Pereira bombing forward from right-back, but Antunes stands his ground down the flank and sees the ball trickle out of bounds for a Dynamo goal-kick. Great defending from him. 
Danilo Silva tries to get on the end of Rybalka's back pass down the right flank but struggles to get on the end of it. Porto are now in possession for the first time in the last couple of minutes or so with Dynamo on the front foot at the moment. 
HUGE CHANCE! Dynamo come so close to taking the lead twice as Yarmolenko skips past Layun and picks out Garmash, who strikes the near post with a header inside the penalty area. The ball bounces out to Moraes who slices his rebound effort wide from close range. 
Sydorchuk snaps at the heels of Danilo and gives away a free-kick in the centre of the pitch. Moraes kicks away the ball in frustration and several Porto players surround the referee to get him booked, but the man in charge of the cards waves away their protests. 
SAVE! Nothing comes from Yarmolenko's corner as Porto clear the danger but Moraes picks up the pieces soon after and plays in Gonzalez. The Paraguayan curls a fantastic shot towards Casillas who just about tips it over the crossbar for another Dynamo corner. 
Gonzalez receives a pass from Antunes down the left and as he winds up a shot again, Pereira marks him closely this time and deflects his effort out wide for a Dynamo corner. Yarmolenko stands over the corner flag ready to take as the referee dishes out instructions to those inside the box. 
Gonzalez marauds forward for Dynamo into Porto's half but with little on ahead of him again, he curls a shot from distance wide of Casillas between the sticks. The Ukrainian outfit are really struggling to keep hold of the ball at the moment. 
CLOSE! Tello engineers half a yard for himself delightfully down the right-hand side and curls in a cracking cross towards Aboubakar, but the Porto striker fails to make contact with the ball as he rushes towards the near post. Dynamo breathe another sigh of relief. 
Brahimi collects Tello's cross-field ball down the left wing and as he gets half a yard on Danilo Silva, he feeds a pass through to Imbula but the former Marseille man blasts an effort over the crossbar from a long way out. 
Brahimi again gets away from the left undetected and plays a good pass towards Neves. The 18-year-old opts out of trying a long-range strike from distance and drives an attemped ball out wide towards Pereira, but he overcooks it as Dynamo win a throw-in.
Brahimi ghosts inside from the left and plays a lovely one-two with Imbula inside Dynamo's half, before he smashes a shot well over the crossbar and into the stands behind Shovkovskiy. Porto continue to dominate proceedings here at the Estadio do Dragao. 
Layun tries to drive forward for Porto from a loose ball in the middle of the pitch but Moraes stops him in his tracks with an outstretched leg. The referee penalises the Dynamo forward and hands the hosts a free-kick. 
Gonzalez cuts inside from the left flank away from Pereira and with only Moraes ahead of him, he tries his luck from distance with a wicked shot but it heads straight down the throat of Casillas who makes a good stop. 
Brahimi wins a corner for Porto as Dragovic diverts the Algerian's cross out for a corner. Layun curls in the resulting set play towards Danilo who gets a header on target, but Shovkovskiy makes a comfortable save in the end. 
Imbula powers forward through Dynamo's midfield lines with excellent vigour and sprays a good pass out wide towards Brahimi, who dips infield looking to get a shot off but Danilo Silva hacks the ball away for the visitors. 
Danilo steals the ball in the middle of the park for Porto after a good run forward from Pereira and drives a shot just wide of the target with Shovkovskiy stretching low towards his left-hand side. Unlucky. 
Porto get us under way here in Portugal. The man in charge of the cards for tonight's affair is Carlos Velasco Carballo from Spain. 
Both sets of players are stripped and raring to go as they leave the tunnel and enter onto the field here at the Estadio do Dragao. We are just moments away from seeing the action start to unfold. 
DYNAMO KIEV substitutes: Rybka, Miguel Veloso, Petrovic, Gusev, Buyalskiy, Belhanda, Teodorczyak.
DYNAMO KIEV (4-4-1-1): Shovkovskiy (c); Danilo Silva, Khacheridi, Dragovic, Antunes; Yarmolenko, Sydorchuk, Rybalka, Gonzalez; Garmash; Junior Moraes. 
PORTO substitutes: Helton, Evandro, Herrera, Andre, Osvaldo, Corona, Bueno. 
PORTO (4-3-3): Casillas; Pereira, Marcano, Martins Indi, Layun; Neves (c), Danilo, Imbula; Tello, Aboubakar, Brahimi. 
TEAM NEWS: Serhiy Rebrov has made five alterations to the team which started Dynamo's last outing against Olimpik Donetsk in the Ukrainian Premier League. Yevhen Khacheridi, Serhiy Sydorchuk, Serhiy Rybalka, Derlis Gonzalez and Andriy Yarmolenko all get the chance to impress from the get-go this evening. 
TEAM NEWS: Julen Lopetegui has made nine changes to the side which started Porto's last match against Angrense in the Taca de Portugal. Iker Casillas, Maxi Pereira, Bruno Martins Indi, Miguel Layun, Ruben Neves, Yacine Brahimi, Danilo, Vincent Aboubakar and Christian Tello all come into the starting eleven for tonight's game. 
Both sides still have work to do if they're to qualify for the knockout stages of Europe's elite club competition. Porto simply need to avoid defeat on home soil tonight to advance through to the last 16, whereas Dynamo ideally need to win to keep pace with second-placed Chelsea. With the Blues being heavy favourites against Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the other Group G match this evening, the Ukrainian outfit must do all they can to get the three points in Portugal. 
Good evening and welcome to our LIVE text commentary on tonight's UEFA Champions League clash between Porto and Dynamo Kiev from the Estadio do Dragao. I'm Matthew Judge and I will be your host for the match, which kicks off at 7:45pm.
