Despite Benfica’s overall domination throughout both halves, it was Dynamo who could steal the win at stoppage time.
Mykola Shaparenko has first hit the crossbar from outside the box and in a minute drove the crowd at the Olympiyskyi Arena ecstatic diligently finishing a neat cross. Unfortunately for Dynamo, the video review disallowed the goal due to offside in the offensive buildup.
In the group’s other opening match, Bayern Munich disgraced Barcelona at Camp Nou with a 0-3 away win.
Bayern now lead the group, Dynamo go second, followed by Benfica and Barcelona.
Dynamo will play their next match at Allianz Arena in Munich against Bayern on September 29. Benfica will host Barcelona in Lisbon.
