Result: Dynamo Kiev 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Dynamo Kiev pick up their first Champions League Group A points with a 2-0 home victory over Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb.

Dynamo Kiev have recovered from their opening-day defeat to take three points at home to Dinamo Zagreb courtesy of a 2-0 win.

The home side got off to the perfect start as Oleg Gusev met a superb Ognjen Vukojevic cross to head home in the third minute.

Brown Ideye went close for the Ukrainians just two minutes later when his header was well tipped over the bar by Ivan Kelava.

Fatos Beqiraj rounded Oleksandr Shovkovskiy to create a crossing chance for the visitors on 25, but no-one could get on the end of it and the score remained 1-0.

Then on 32 minutes Kiev had their second. It was a series of defensive mistakes as first Kelava threw straight to Taye Taiwo before his cross was turned into his own net by Josip Pivaric.

It was the 49th minute when Zagreb managed their first shot on target, however Shovkovskiy was well behind the shot from range.

Miguel Veloso and Andriy Yarmolenko both squandered decent second-half chances for the hosts but the damage had been done in the first half and Kiev ran out 2-0 winners.
