It took one of Barcelona’s veterans to prevent the Catalan club from facing an early Champions League elimination.
Gerard Pique’s first-half goal equaled Champions League goals scored for defenders and helped Barcelona beat Dynamo Kyiv 1-0 on Wednesday to end their losing streak and get back into position to advance to the knockout stages of the European competition.
Pique scored his 16th Champions League goal to secure the crucial victory for Barcelona, who started with 3-0 back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich and Benfica and risked not making it past the group stage for the first time since 2000 -01.
“After the first two group games, with no points or goals, this victory was so important to give us a chance to be in the mix until the end of the group stage,” said Pique.
The victory puts the Catalan club in third place in Group E, two points ahead of Dynamo and one behind Benfica, who lost 4-0 to leaders Bayern later on Wednesday. Bayern have reached nine points in three matches.
It was Barcelona’s second consecutive victory after winning just once in six matches in all competitions.
He had been winless in five consecutive Champions League games, his longest winless streak since 1997. He had lost his last three Champions League games at home to his worst streak in European competition.
“We can’t lose so many opportunities, we were playing for our lives,” Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said. “We could have scored more.
Pique opened the scoring with a close-range receiving shot after a Jordi Alba cross through the box in the 36th minute, joining former Real Madrid left-back Roberto Carlos as the Champions League’s best defender. Pique was tied with former Madrid center-backs Sergio Ramos and Iván Helguera with 15 goals.
“For a defender he scored a lot of goals,” Alba said of Pique. “I gave him a nice caramel over there. I asked him to thank me for that … As a child he liked to ride and play as a striker so he’s a good finisher.
Pique, 34, also became the Catalan club’s oldest Champions League scorer, overtaking Sylvinho, who was 19 days younger when he scored against Shakhtar Donetsk in 2008.
Forward Sergio Aguero came off the bench in the 75th to replace Memphis Depay and make his second appearance for Barcelona since joining the club Manchester City this season.
Barcelona had never lost more than two group stage matches since 1997-98.
Dynamo started with a home draw against Benfica before losing 5-0 to Bayern in a result equaling their heaviest loss in UEFA club competition.
“It was a deserved victory for Barcelona,” said Dynamo coach Mircea Lucescu. “They beat us because of their experience and their aggressive pressing. We made mistakes in our half of the field which ended up being moments in front of our goal. “
Barcelona’s next game is the Spanish league “clásico” against Real Madrid at Camp Nou on Sunday.
In the Champions League, he will travel to Dynamo in November.
Only around 45,000 fans attended the match at Camp Nou.
