The eulogy of Agüero in Fati

A little earlier in the evening, Ansu Fati , a bright shot after a relay with Memphis Depay , allowed Barça to return to 1-1. A benefit that only confirms that the young Spanish is indeed a phenomenon, and that his return will do the greatest good at the Catalan club.

Ansu Fati said his goal and Barcelona's victory were for the absent Sergio Aguero as Tuesday's 1-0 win at Dynamo Kiev sent the Catalans up to second in Group E of the Champions League.

Barca's maiden away success of the season in all competitions allowed them to move above Benfica, after their 5-2 loss at Bayern Munich, who qualified for the last 16.

"The goal is for Kun (Aguero). This victory is for him. Hence my dedication," Fati told Movistar.

"We are going to fight. We depend on ourselves and we are going to go with everything. We knew it was an important week," he added ahead of Saturday's La Liga trip to Celta Vigo.

Barca edge past Dynamo to revive Champions League hopes at half-empty Camp Nou

  Barca edge past Dynamo to revive Champions League hopes at half-empty Camp Nou Gerard Pique sparked Barcelona's flailing Champions League campaign into life on Wednesday by scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Dynamo Kiev, a victory that was witnessed by a half-empty Camp Nou. The attendance was recorded at 45,968, with several blocks of seating filled by only a handful of supporters for a game coach Ronald Koeman said the team had to win to have any chance of reaching the last 16. After losing both of their opening games in Group E 3-0 to Bayern Munich and Benfica, Barcelona needed victory to resuscitate their chances of progress and avoid the embarrassment of going out in the group stage for the first time since 2000.

Home boss Mircea Lucescu dropped forward Benjamin Verbic for Denys Garmash as midfielder Serhiy Sydorchuk captained the side after scoring twice in Saturday's league win over FK Maiupol.

Temporary Barca coach Sergi Barjuan made three changes from the weekend's draw with Alaves as Fati started instead of Aguero.

Argentina striker Aguero is set to miss at least three months of action while his treatment for a heart problem is assessed.

The sides had scored just once between them in their opening three matches of this year's competition and the run continued during a slow first half.

The best opportunity before the interval fell to Barca's Nico Gonzalez but his header was blocked two metres from the Dynamo line by team-mate Memphis Depay.

( News: Everything about La Liga ) This was announced by the Catalans on Wednesday evening on their website.

The breakthrough came with 20 minutes left as teenager Fati, wearing Lionel Messi's former No. 10 shirt, scored his third goal of the season.

Oscar Mingueza fired a low cross into the Ukrainan box and Fati half-volleyed the ball into the top corner after a deflection.

Lucescu reacted quickly after the opener sending on Brazilian Vitinho for Garmash.

He then emptied his bench by the 81st minute which included bringing Verbic into the fray.

Sergi, taking charge after the sacking of Ronald Koeman with ex-Barca captain Xavi Hernandez reportedly in line to replace the Dutchman, survived a late scare in the 89th minute.
