Dynamo Kyiv 0-1 Barcelona: Ansu Fati goal gives Barca vital Champions League win in Ukraine

Last update on. From the section Champions League
Ansu Fati is the champion league's youngest goal scorer, scoring against Inter Milan at 17 years and 40 days in December 2019.

Barcelona won a crucial victory against Dynamo Kyiv, moving up to second place in Champions League Group A.

Ansu Fati scored the winner in the 70th minute with a powerful strike just 10 yards from Oscar Mingueza’s right-wing cross.

Although Kyiv had many chances to score when it was goalless, Mykola Shaparenko twice scored wide from well-placed positions.

Barcelona lost 3-0 to Benfica in their first two group games. However, they are now two points ahead of Benfica in the third.

It was their first Champions League match since Ronald Koeman was fired last week. Sergi Barjuan, Barcelona B boss, was in interim charge.

Barca has reached the 16th place in 17 of their 17 previous seasons. They will be guaranteed a place in the knockout stages if Benfica wins at home on 23 November.

However, a defeat would see the Spanish team lose to already-qualified Bayern Munich, and Benfica drop points against Kyiv on matchday six.

Barcelona won a penalty when it was goalless. Fati was forced to go down under a challenge. However, the decision was reversed following a review by a video assistant referee (VAR).

Minutes later, the forward aged 19 was celebrating with what proved to have been the decisive goal.

Kyiv had the chance to score an equaliser late in the game, but Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, visiting goalkeeper, made a great one-handed save to stop Victor Tsygankov curling attempt.
