Serhiy Rebrov, Dynamo coach
You'll see our best line-up tomorrow. It's the Champions League and you can't even think about rotation in such a competition. We are focused on Beşiktaş. We know they will give everything to get the knockout stage for the first time in their history.
Some say we've deserved more points than we have, but I disagree. We have done what we could do – it's a pity but it's fair. However, I hope my players will do everything to register their first win in the group. We are fully motivated. You can't speak about any lack of motivation in the Champions League.
Şenol Güneş, Beşiktaş coach
Games like this are always important for any team but we have more reason to want the win. A victory will have a huge impact not only on us but on Turkish football too. So now we are thinking only about how to achieve this goal and take this historic chance. For me, this is the most important game of the year.

Does Rebrov field a strong team in a game that has no meaning for Dynamo, or does he rest his key players ahead of an all-important Premier-Liha derby against Shakhtar Donetsk next Monday?
"We will fight for the honour of Dynamo and Ukraine," Rebrov told me a few days ago, hinting his side will do all they can to avoid finishing without a win in Group B.
