The Ukrainian thinks his countrymen rely too heavily on three players, according to Barcelona defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy has declared that if the European champions play to their strengths then they should have no problems overcoming Dynamo Kiev in their crucial UEFA Champions League tie on Wednesday night.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk centre-back, who is cup-tied for the Champions League, says that Kiev rely too much on three key players and also added that the weather should not have a big impact on the Blaugrana.

"They are very strong physically and are very well prepared. [Oleksandr] Shovkovsky, [Andriy] Shevchenko and [Artem] Milevskiy are their best players, but sometimes they rely too heavily on them. If we perform our kind of game we should have no problems," he told Sport.

"Normally in this period is usually at -14 degrees or -15, but the temperature may be between -2 and -4. It is not going to be that cold."

Barcelona must win to ensure qualification for the next round and a victory would see them finish as group leaders.
