The first leg, played in Warsaw, Poland, was 0-0 and Dynamo did the business against 10-man Fenerbahce in extra time, with Oleksandr Karavaev notching the winner.

The opener was scored by Vitaliy Buyalskyi, who did an eagle-hand gesture that is said to be linked to Fenerbahce's rivals Besiktas.

And in response, many of the home supporters were heard loudly singing the name of Putin, the man who has caused so much suffering and pain for Ukraine people.

Footage of the chanting from the stands has been doing the rounds on social media and garnered over 5 million views.

Fener were knocked out of the Champions League but fans have urged UEFA to ban them from the competition in the future.

Dynamo will play Everton in a friendly fixture dubbed the "Match For Peace” at Goodison Park on Saturday evening, with funds being raised for Ukrainians.

They then take on Austrian outfit Sturm Graz over two legs in the final Champions League qualifying round, while Fenerbahce have dropped into the Europa League play-off round after the defeat.
