Highlights: Dynamo Kyiv 0-2 Benfica

Rui Vitória, Benfica coach
I am expecting a hard match, as is always the case in the UEFA Champions League. You have to be completely focused in every game. The biggest mistake would be to think that just because we won in Ukraine, we will win here.

Dynamo will make life difficult for us. We must be committed and disciplined. Our aim is always to try and take the three points. We have three finals left in this group and we want to win all of them.

Serhiy Rebrov, Dynamo coach
We are expecting a good game and we want to make sure we leave the field having given absolutely everything. We are playing in the UEFA Champions League and must look to perform at our top level. Of course, missing injured forward Andriy Yarmolenko is a blow – he is one of our leaders – but other players can take his place.

I hope the young players coming in for us can respond well and help the team to get the right result. The more intensity we play with, the better our chances are of winning. We have three games left in this group and we want to collect as many points as possible.

Reporter's view: Paul Bryan (@UEFAcomPaulB)
Back in contention for a place in the round of 16 following victory on matchday three, Benfica will look to capitalise on soaring confidence and growing team spirit to inflict another defeat on their Ukrainian guests. Rui Vitória's side go into the Group B encounter on the back of five straight wins and will be tough to stop at their highly-charged home.
