The ones of Ronald Koeman will look for to step forward in the classification to obtain the pass to the phase of eliminatory of the competition in front of a Kiev that, as it did it in the Camp Nou before the stop of selections, will not do him the easy way to the Barça.
It is a party that is very important for the pride of the club, that comes to lose in Wanda Metropolitan in front of the Athletic of Madrid in LaLiga, and that has left a very irregular image in the beginning of campaign. Koeman Is conscious that all the looks are on him and, although a negative result no pondía at stake the classification, needs to return to the route of the victory and show an image convincente, as already it has done it in front of the Ferencváros and the Juventus, in which definitely, has been the best party of the blaugranas in what it goes of season.
The Barcelona group has won all his meetings of the Champions League with 9 points in the Group G and, to add three points in Ukraine, will be mathematically in the eighth of final. The Dutch technician will have to do a lot of modifications in his alignment, due to the fact that it will not explain for the meeting with Gerard Hammered, Ansu Fati, Sergio Busquets, Lionel Messi or Frenkie of Jong, key players in the beginning of the season, but will be the more youngsters those who will give the face in front of the Ukrainians.

To his time, the Barça will try to keep his good series in the phase of groups of the League of Champions, where does not lose from the season 2016/2017, when it fell in front of the Manchester City, by 3-1. Since, the culés have added 17 triumphs and six ties. Besides, regarding the Ukrainian teams, the FC Barcelona has won his last six parties against pertinent clubs of Ukraine.
However, although in the paper seems a meeting in which the Barcelona can dominate from the beginning, will be a complicadísimo split in which all the sectors of the field of the Barça have to work to 100% to avoid errors, especially with the big quantity of drops that there is for the meeting. Beginning with Leo Messi and Of Jong, to those who Koeman has decided to give him rest and that, to weigh that they have not had a brilliant season, continue being key players in the team.
In the forward there are several options and Koeman will have to decide who is to 100% to jump to the field. In principle, it could put like mediapunta to Philippe Coutinho, the one who already has recovered of the annoyances muscularesque kept it out of the field in the last weeks. Trincao And Dembélé or Pedri could act by the bands, whereas Griezmann has a lot of options to be headline like nine.
The Kiev arrives with more confidence
In the party of gone, the Dynamo of Kiev already showed that it is a team combativo and for this party recovers to several important footballers, that could not be at the beginning of November to consequence of the contagions by COVID-19, by what the blaugranas will have to put all his effort in the defensive zone not to suffer in his visit to the stadium Lobanovsky, something that will suppose a challenge for Koeman because of the -long- smart of drops in this sector of the field.
In this opportunity, Lucescu will have to his disposal to the nine footballers that could not travel to the clash of the Camp Nou, before the stop of selections.
