Premier League giants Manchester City hosted Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kyiv at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night in their second leg of the Champions League, after a 3-1 away win
in the first which gave them the advantage. It was expected to be a tough intense battle between the two teams, as the visitors were hoping to get something out of the game and challenge for a place in the next round. However, things did not go exactly as per plan for either side and there were no goals scored in the game at all. There were chances which both sides could have taken and produced a goal, though it was not meant to be on the night and it was eventually a stalemate.
After a hard fought battle between the two clubs who were desperate to win, the game eventually ended 0-0 and the two teams took home a share of the spoils with neither keeper really being tested too much. Manuel Pellegrini’s side had not been in the best of forms in recent weeks and were hoping to impress, though they have failed to show consistency right through this season and are struggling in the league competition.
The Manchester based side suffered more losses, as captain Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi once again picked up injuries during the course of the match, which could have an impact on the Italian manager’s final few weeks at the club. It will be interesting to see how they respond now, as they went through to the quarter finals of the cup competition despite the draw.
