FC Porto are through to the UEFA Champions League knockout stage with two matches to spare after a goalless draw with FC Dynamo Kyiv, whose chances of qualifying from Group A are hanging by a thread.

The result was not the belated birthday present Dynamo coach Oleh Blokhin, who turned 60 on Monday, was hoping for. Although his team forced the issue after the interval, following a largely incident-free first period, the Bilo-Syni seldom looked like making the breakthrough which would have kept them within striking distance of second-placed Paris Saint-Germain FC. As it stands, they trail the Ligue 1 club, their next opponents, by five points.

Match in 5

  • Porto qualify from Group A with two games to spare
  • Vítor Pereira's side stretch unbeaten run to 21 matches
  • Dynamo five points behind second-placed PSG
  • Ukrainian club host the French team on 21 November
  • Porto welcome point-less Dinamo Zagreb next 

Reaction

With their supporters behind them Dynamo are dangerous at home, but the result was fair. Not every team can achieve qualification on matchday four.

We didn't take our chances. Though we only have a slim mathematical chance to qualify, we will prepare very seriously for the remaining games.
