Already sure of a round of 32 place, FC Dinamo Moskva will look to keep their winning streak going as they take on eliminated Panathinaikos FC in UEFA Europa League Group E.

Form guide
Dinamo beat Panathinaikos 2-1 in Athens on matchday one and have won their three most recent home games against Greek sides – though one of those, their 1-0 success against Larissa FC in the European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-finals in March 1985, was held in Tbilisi.

• Legia Warszawa and Dinamo are the only sides to have won all four of their group stage matches this season.

• Having taken just one point from their opening four encounters, Panathinaikos can no longer finish higher than third in Group E.

Trivia and links
Dinamo's Dutch left-back Alexander Büttner is one of the three most fouled players in the group stage so far; he, Richard Almeida (Qarabağ FK) and Bruno Gama (FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk) were infringed against 15 times each over the first four matchdays.

Panathinaikos's Croatian central defender Gordon Schildenfeld has been loaned to the club for a second season by Dinamo, having joined the Moscow side from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2012.

Panathinaikos's Swedish forward Marcus Berg and Dinamo's Hungarian winger Balázs Dzsudzsák played together for PSV Eindhoven from 2010 to 2011.

The coaches
Dinamo coach since April 2014, Stanislav Cherchesov made his name as a goalkeeper with FC Spartak Moskva, 1. FC Dynamo Dresden and FC Tirol Innsbruck, and played international football for the Soviet Union, the CIS and Russia. As a player, he won three Austrian titles with Tirol, going on to coach FC Wacker Innsbruck along with a number of Russian sides including Spartak.

Panathinaikos coach Giannis Anastasiou was capped five times by Greece and played abroad with RSC Anderlecht, Roda JC and AFC Ajax among others. Briefly a first-team coach at Reading FC in England, he took command at Panathinaikos in May 2013.
