Barcelona welcome Dynamo Kiev to Camp Nou on Wednesday evening with RonaldKoeman’s side aiming to continue to their strong start in Group G of the Champions League.

Barca are unbeaten in their last 36 Champions League matches at Camp Nou and bet365 offer them at just 1/14(1.07).

The visitors would have been rank outsiders anyway but Andriy Shevchenko will also be without a host of players due to coronavirus, and the side from Ukraine are offered at 33/1 (34.0) with the draw at 10/1 (11.00).

The Catalans remain without first-choice goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, although the German is closing in on a return from injury, whilst Samuel Umtiti, Ronaldo Araujo and Philippe Coutinho are all still sidelined.

Dynamo have named a travelling squad of just 13 players for the trip to Spain, with nine regulars missing due to coronavirus and Sergiy Sydorchukis suspended. Third-choice goalkeeperRuslanNeshcheretshould start.

Saturday evening saw the Blaugrana play out a frustrating 1-1 draw at Alaves, with Koeman afterwards rueing his side’s squandered chances.

Indeed, it was a similar story last week against Juventus where Barca created plenty of openings but did not manage to score their second goal until injury time to kill off the game.

However, the hosts should be far too strong for a Dynamo side missing so many players especially after being so clinical in dispatching Ferencvaros by a 5-1 scoreline two weeks ago.

Barca have scored at least three goals in six of their last eight Champions League games at Camp Nou and should be able to record another clear win against lower ranked opposition.

In an extremely one-sided market backing the hosts to win both halves, as they did in their last home European game, at 8/11 (1.72) looks like an appealing option.
