UCL: No Messi? No problem for Barcelona

Ronald Koeman rested Talisman, Lionel Messi for the trip to Ukraine but the Barcelona players who made it for the trip made sure that was not a problem as a comfortable 4-0 victory against Dynamo Kyiv saw the Catalians who have won all four of their Group G games so far confirm their qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League.

Sergino Dest’s driven effort provided the opener in the second-half following a barren first half.

On his first start of the campaign, Denmark forward Braithwaite pulled off an excellent – setting up the opener, latching on to Mingueza’s flick for his first and then winning and converting a penalty for his second.

France striker Antoine Griezmann rounded off the scoring late on.
