(Reuters) – Benfica forward Roman Yaremchuk was left frustrated after spurning a number of opportunities against former side Dynamo Kyiv as the teams played to a 0-0 draw in their Champions League Group E opener on Tuesday.

Ukraine international Yaremchuk had the best chance of the game when the ball fell kindly to him on the edge of the six-yard box, but his shot was saved by the legs of home goalkeeper Denys Boyko.

Mykola Shaparenko struck the crossbar for Dynamo and then had what looked an injury-time winner ruled out for offside as the home team finished the game on the front foot at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium, but without reward.

Bayern Munich lead the group after their 3-0 victory at Barcelona on Tuesday.
