Juventus had no child in group G to Ferencváros: 1-4.

Dynamo Kiev had a number of excellent opportunities to score in Camp Nou and also signed for the tying goal fifteen minutes before the end, but the equalizer was not forthcoming.

Frenkie de Jong started against Kiev next to Piqué in the center of the defense, while right back Sergiño Dest also got a starting spot from Koeman.

The two former Ajax players took part in the entire match.

Dynamo Kiev gets a lesson in effectiveness

FC Barcelona started very well in the Camp Nou and took the lead from a penalty after five minutes.

Messi was bluntly taken down on the edge of the penalty area and cashed in on the opportunity himself.

It was a small miracle that Barcelona did not increase the margin in the opening phase.

Midfielder Pedri saw his swipe go out of the goal from the bottom of the crossbar and Antoine Griezmann managed to shoot from close range into the side net.

Kiev had a good chance before half-time via Vitaliy Buyalskyy, but his header was turned by goalkeeper Marc-André Ter Stegen.

In the first fifteen minutes of the second half, Barcelona was again released several times with a fright.

Tomasz Kedziora headed in the 1-1 immediately after the break in a detached position, but the cross from the corner had gone over the end line.

Moments later, Ter Stegen intervened again after De Jong lost a sprint duel.

Where Dynamo Kiev failed to score, Barcelona did hit.

The Piqué, which had come along, beautifully headed in a cross from Fati.

Still, Koeman's team released the reins afterwards and Kiev was threatening several times.

Uiblinker Ter Stegen prevented a goal against for a long time, but still had to capitulate in the 75th minute on a rebound by captain Viktor Tsyhankov.

The pressure from the Ukrainians then increased further, but Barcelona held out in a hectic final phase.

Juventus registers a big win in Hungary

Juventus made no mistake in the same group in the away match against Ferencváros.

The 'Old Lady' won 1-4 in Budapest, where Cristiano Ronaldo played his first Champions League match of the season.

The Portuguese recently became infected with the corona virus and therefore missed several matches from Juventus.

Ronaldo made his return last Sunday in the away game against Spezia Calcio (1-4 win) and scored twice in that game.

In Hungary it was not Ronaldo, but Álvaro Morata who claimed a leading role at Juventus.

The striker scored in the seventh and sixtieth minute, after which Paulo Dybala scored the 0-3 twenty minutes before time.

The damage was not done for Ferencváros, as Juventus scored for the fourth time in the 81st minute.

Defender Lasha Dvali made a great effort to get rid of Dybala's bet, but clumsily shot the ball into his own goal.

Ferencváros did make the honorary goal in the final minute.

The victory puts Juventus on six points in group G. Dynamo Kiev and Ferencváros were stuck on one point and FC Barcelona are in the lead with nine points.
