Manchester City travel to Kiev to take on rank outsider Dynamo Kiev in the last of our first leg, Dynamo Kiev finished second to Chelsea in the group stage and were a little unlucky not to win the group. Dynamo Kiev will look to Yarmalenko, Velosa, and Junior Moraes. This is a very strong Dynamo Kiev side and Yarmalenko has been quality throughout the group and the season. Ukraine's best player and captain of both club and country he is the key man for the side. Manchester City will need to be careful of this trip as it is a tricky one.
Manchester City are a tough team to judge especially of late, City have lost their last three in all competitions and are in a tough spot at the moment but Manuel Pelligrini rested his team at the weekend with this important game coming up. Sergio Aguero, Ya Ya Toure, Sterling will all look to lead the way offensively while fit again captain Vincent Kompany will be the rock that Manchester City's defence is built on. This is a quality side that are going through a rough patch. Historically this competition has not been kind to Manchester City though and I am certain that City fans will be nervous of this match up.
I am going to take the draw here, I think Manchester City will be happy enough to go back to the Ethiad with a draw here and I think that Dynamo Kiev while having plenty of quality going forward they could really struggle to deal with Sergio Aguero and Manchester City's attack. I am hoping this one is an open game but I think this may be a dull bore possibly 0-0 or 1-1.
