Besiktas, with one win and four draws so far in Group B, are close to qualifying from the group stages for the first time in the Istanbul club’s history.
Although Dynamo Kiev have no hope of advancing further, the Ukrainians will provide a stern test for Besiktas, who recently came back from 3-0 down against Portuguese group rivals Benfica to earn a hard-won draw.
A Besiktas win -- coupled with a Benfica-Napoli draw on Tuesday -- will see the Black Eagles go through as group leaders. Lose, and Besiktas will finish third and be demoted to the Europa League competition.
A draw in Kiev will see Besiktas relying on the result of the Benfica-Napoli match. Besiktas would need one side to win as well as needing to finish the group with a better goal difference than the loser in Lisbon.
Vincent Aboubakar and Ricardo Quaresma will be at the forefront of Besiktas's attack in one of the side’s most critical matches.
Both players have scored three times so far, helping Besiktas to bag nine goals so far in the group. Cenk Tosun, Adriano Correia and Anderson Talisca recorded also scored for Istanbul's Black Eagles.
