Betting tips and match preview | UEFA Champions League
Dynamo Kyiv welcome Manchester City to the NSK Olimpiyski Stadium in a match that sees the return of the Champions League return for these clubs after a two month hiatus. This is a fixture of great significance for Manchester City and represents a great chance for the club to progress to the Quarter Finals of the competition for the first time in their history.
Hosts Dynamo finished runners up to Chelsea in Group G, they managed to collect an impressive 11 points. They lost only one match in the Champions League group stages and that was a 2-1 loss to eventual group winners Chelsea. Failing to win the group hasn’t necessarily counted against Dynamo, with group winners Chelsea having to play against PSG, although a tie against Manchester City will still be very tough for the Ukrainians.
Kyiv’s last fixture in the Champions League saw them beat Maccabi Tel Aviv 1-0 and their form prior to the winter break was excellent domestically with six wins on the bounce in the Ukrainian Premier League.
Pellegrini Looking To Make History
The visitors Manchester City have also had an excellent Champions League campaign, this despite an indifferent Premier League campaign which sees them sitting fourth and they have just been dumped out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 5-1 thrashing at Chelsea. The Champions League has been a refuge for the club this term and they have a record of four wins and two losses in a very tough group.
Manchester City will be looking to make it back to back wins in the Champions League, with their last fixture a 4-2 win at home to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. Manuel Pellegrini has announced he will be leaving the club at the end of the season and he will be keen to guide City to their most successful ever Champions League finish, that would be a fitting legacy.
Dynamo head into this fixture with a record of three wins, two draws and one loss in their last six. City have a record of fours wins and two losses in their last six matches.
Both teams are 8/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Dynamo are Andriy Yarmolenko at 5/1 with Junior Moraes and Lukasz Teodorczyk at 7/1. For Manchester City Sergio Aguero is at 7/2 and Kelechi Iheanacho is at 5/1.
The last time these sides played in Kyiv in the 2011 Europa League Dynamo won 2-0 and the odds of the same result are 16/1.
