With four points after three Champions League games, Benfica are third in Group B but could go top if results go their way.

Their campaign started poorly with a home draw to Besiktas followed by an eventual 4-2 defeat away at Napoli where they found themselves four goals behind within an hour. Yet that loss remains Benfica's only defeat of the season, with Rui Vitoria's side currently flying five points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga.

With Napoli's form having faltered of late, Benfica will fancy their chances of nabbing one of the top two spots in Group B, as they prepare to meet opponents that they beat 2-0 in Kiev.

Since taking charge of his former club, Dynamo Kiev manager Sergei Rebrov has delivered back-to-back titles, but his side are well off the pace this season. They are currently third in the Ukranian Premier League and trail leaders Shakhtar Dontesk by eight points.

Without a clean sheet in six matches, Kiev are struggling defensively since losing centre-back Aleksandar Dragovic in the summer.


Benfica Win To Nil

Kiev are in wretched form of late, with just four wins in their last 13 games. They have lost both of their home Champions League games this season and are adrift at the bottom of Group B, with little hope of even qualifying for the Europa League.

Benfica's 2-0 win over Dynamo in the last round of games started a run of three matches in which they have won without conceding a goal. The 2.3211/8 on offer for Benfica to achieve this feat in a fourth consecutive game, looks like decent value.
