Dynamo Kiev grabbed all three points at home against a Dinamo Zagreb side that looked a bit out of their depth.

Dynamo Kiev are probably not getting out of Group A, but they managed to keep things at least mildly interesting for FC Porto and Paris Saint-Germain by putting together a comfortable 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday. The match was more or less over before it started, and Dinamo were never in it.

Ognjen Vukojević set up Oleg Gusev for the opening goal just three minutes into the match, with a cross into the center of the box that Gusev headed in. Dynamo Kiev took control of the match after that and their visitors never really threatened to score.

The result was all but sealed with a Josip Pivaric own goal in the 33rd minute. Zagreb goalkeeper Ivan Kelava set up the goal with a terrible giveaway to Taye Taiwo, who beat his man and crossed into the box. It bounced around a bit before Pivaric put it into his own net while trying to clear.

Dynamo Kiev was the better side in the second half as well, but Kelava atoned for his errors with a number of decent saves to keep things from getting embarrassing.
