FC Dynamo Kyiv and Beşiktaş JK reconvene in UEFA Europa League Group E having met one another as recently as February.
• This will be the clubs' seventh UEFA meeting. Dynamo have had the upper hand in the past, with the record W4 D1 L1 (W2 D1 L0 in Kyiv, where they have never conceded against Beşiktaş).
• Most recently, they met in last season's UEFA Europa League round of 32, where Yuri Semin's Dynamo beat Bernd Schuster's Beşiktaş 4-1 in Istanbul and 4-0 in Kyiv.
• The teams for the latter game on 24 February 2011 were:
Dynamo: Shovkovskiy, Danilo Silva, Vukojević, Popov, Shevchenko (Zozulya 77), Yarmolenko (Ninković 63), Milevskiy (Kravets 69), Gusev, Eremenko, Yussuf, Leandro Almeida.
Beşiktaş: Rüstü, İsmail Köybaşi, Sivok, Hilbert, Bobô, Guti (Onur Bayramoğlu 72), Necip Uysal, Ferrari (İbrahim Toraman 59), Ernst, Hugo Almeida (Mert Nobre 58), Mehmet Aurélio.
• Dynamo have drawn both of their opening Group E games 1-1. They have won only one of their last four European home games, beating PFC Litex Lovech 1-0 in this season's UEFA Europa League play-offs.
• Beşiktaş have lost their last three games on the road in Europe since a 2-1 win at PFC CSKA Sofia in last season's UEFA Europa League group stage. The 4-0 defeat at Dynamo started that losing streak.
• RSC Anderlecht and Beşiktaş are the group stage's top scorers to date with six goals each.
• Once a midfielder and forward, the vastly experienced Yuri Semin is in his second spell as Dynamo coach, having won the 2008/09 Ukrainian title in his first stint, leading the club to the UEFA Cup semi-finals that year. He made his name in his native Russia with FC Lokomotiv Moskva, winning titles in 2002 and 2004. He also managed the Russia national team in 2005.
• Semin's Lokomotiv lost 3-0 away and 3-1 at home against Beşiktaş in the 2000/01 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.
• Portuguese coach Carlos Carvalhal has been put in temporary command at Beşiktaş with Tayfur Havutçu relieved of his duties for the moment. Once a defender for SC Braga and FC Porto among others, in his last post before coming to Istanbul he coached Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2009/10.
