A 95th-minute Ivan Krstanović penalty – GNK Dinamo Zagreb's first goal in Group A – earned the Croatian side a deserved 1-1 draw at home to FC Dynamo Kyiv.

Andriy Yarmolenko's volley at the end of a first half briefly delayed by heavy snow looked like being decisive, but Krstanović kept his nerve from the spot to save Dinamo from equalling RCS Anderlecht's unwanted record of 12 straight group stage defeats. If the equaliser marked a positive end to Krunoslav Jurčić's first UEFA Champions League game, in what is his third spell in charge of the club, opponents Dynamo could look forward to UEFA Europa League football in the spring.

Matches like this test your fighting qualities. We were a bit lucky to score first but it's a pity we let the victory slip through our hands.
