Ukraine sides looking for first ever victory over Italians

With 3 draws and 14 defeats from 17 Euro cup matches, Ukraine sides have never beaten Italian teams.

No Euro draw for Dynamo since December 2002

Dynamo Kiev's last European stalemate was almost a year ago, when on 12 December 2002 they drew 0-0 at home to Besiktas. Since then the Ukraines have won 4 matches and lost 3.

Inter qualify if...

Inter have a 44.4% probability of progressing in this season's Champions League. This is the statistic that emerges when considering all nine possible combinations of results of the Kiev match and Arsenal v Lokomotiv Moscow. If Inter lose in Ukraine they will be out of all European cup competitions, while a win would see the Nerazzurri qualify for the last sixteen. A draw against Kiev would see Inter through if Lokomotiv win in London, while if the Gunners win or draw Inter will qualify for the Uefa Cup.

Vieri two away from Nerazzurri century

On Sunday at the Meazza Christian Vieri scored twice against Perugia to bring his total to 12 in official matches against the Umbrian side. Vieri is now just two goals away from his century for the Nerazzurri. Of his 98 goals in black and blue, the centre- forward has scored 84 in the Serie A , 5 in the Coppa Italia, 5 in the Champions League and 4 in the Uefa Cup. Inter have earned 10 points this season thanks to Vieri 's decisive goals.

Adani always on target against Ukraine sides

Daniele Adani has scored consistently against Ukraine clubs. The Nerazzurri defender netted in Fiorentina 2-1 Dnepr in the 2001/02 Uefa Cup and in this season's match at home to Dynamo.

KIEV - The Nerazzurri are out of the Champions League after being held to a 1-1 draw away Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday evening. Third spot in Group B sees Zac's men qualify for the third round of the Uefa Cup.

It was all Inter in the opening period of a fast and furious encounter, with Vieri, Cruz and Javier Zanetti all managing shots on goal. Dynamo looked dangerous on the counter-attack but couldn't penetrate the Nerazzurri back line.

The pendulum swung in the home side's favour early in the second half, with Shatskikh and captain Belkevich particularly dangerous on the break. But Daniele Adani stunned the Ukraines with a header into the bottom right-hand corner from Emre's 58th-minute free kick.

Dynamo pressed hard for an equaliser, going close through Shatskikh and Leko before Rincon tapped home from Sablic's deflected shot on 85 minutes.

Both sides could have scored a winner in a pulsating end-to-end finale, Vieri, Martins and substitute Recoba all presented with chances for the Nerazzurri. But after three frenetic minutes of added time an erie silence fell on the Lobanovskiy Stadium as both teams learned their European fates, Arsenal having beaten Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 in London.
