    The La Liga side are yet to score in the Champions League after conceding six goals in their opening two games…

    Barcelona are to welcome Dinamo Kiev for their matchday three fixture of the UEFA Champions League, on Wednesday.

    Ronald Koeman’s side are placed at the bottom of Group E after back-to-back 3-0 defeats against Bayern and Benfica and another defeat can spell danger to their chances of making it through to the knockouts.

    The Ukrainians, though the weakest side in the group on paper, are still capable of causing enough problems for the Catalan outfit as Dynamo Kiev look to bounce back from a 5-0 defeat to Bayern.

    Here’s how to watch Barcelona vs Dinamo Kiev in the 2021-22 Champions League from India.
