Dinamo travel to Portugal on the back of a morale-boosting 5-0 victory over Zadar at the Maksimir Stadium knowing they must earn a draw against the Portuguese champions if they are to stand any chance of overhauling the four-point gap to Dynamo Kiev and claim third place in the group.

Porto, who are top of Group A and beat Dinamo 2-0 in Zagreb in their opening pool game on September 18, have already qualified to the knockout stages but will be looking to consolidate their position and earn a potentially better draw.

"We have a match in the Champions League against perhaps the strongest team in our group," Kelava told www.gnkdinamo.hr ahead of the match.

"However, although Porto is a great team that has already proved its quality by making sure to qualify for the next round - we're coming into the game on the back of a good result."

Dinamo Zagreb have a near fully-fit squad to select from for the match, although Ante Rukavina has not travelled to Portugal as the forward has been sidelined by a bout of flu.

However, Dinamo coach Ante Cacic has Arijan Ademi, Alen Halilovic, Mateo Kovacic and Domagoj Vida available after minor knocks.

Porto, the 2004 Champions League winners, will be without defender Emidio Rafael who has a long-term ankle injury, but manager Vitor Pereira could still make several changes with qualification to the last 16 ensured.

Midfielder Joao Moutinho and striker Jackson Martinez are amongst those who could be rested for the game to give fringe players the chance to make an impact.

Despite this, Porto midfielder Lucho Gonzalez says his side are still focused on earning another win.

He told the club's official website: "Although we have already qualified, we have the objective of finishing the group in the top position. This is an important game coming up."
