Dynamo Kiev and Benfica will face off in the Champions League 2016-17 group stage on Wednesday.

When the tournament group was announced, many expected Benfica to run away with a top spot. Afterall, the Portuguese side had tremendous experience in the tournament for years, even pushing Bayern Munich to the limit in the quarterfinals of the tournament last season.

But now the team looks like an early exit, sitting dead last in a group it was supposed to win. A 1-1 draw at home against Besiktas started the disastrous run with a 4-2 loss at Napoli.

Dynamo Kiev has just as many points as Benfica after losing against Napoli 2-1 at home and then drawing with Besiktas in its most recent game. The winner of this tie might have a shot to move up the table and solidify a shot at second place. The loser might be heading out early in December.

Who Wins? Prediction

Benfica is the better side and is better than it has played to date. Expect a 1-0 win for the Portuguese contingent.

Start Time, Date, Location

Dynamo Kiev and Benfica kick off at 2:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday.
