Dynamo finished second in Group G to Chelsea, claiming three wins, two draws and one defeat.

After drawing 2-2 at home with Porto, they won 2-0 away at Maccabi Tel Aviv and earned a goalless draw at home to Jose Mourinho's men, who then beat them at Stamford Bridge.

Before that, they stormed to the top of the Ukrainian Premier League, winning 43 points from a possible 48.
