Dynamo Kyiv will also have the luxury of playing in front of their home fans as it was earlier expected that this game will be played behind closed doors after UEFA sanctioned the punishment of playing two European games in an empty stadium fir various offences. This was was later reduced to one match and has been served against the group stage fixture against Tel Aviv.

Manchester City go into the game from a huge 5-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday in the 5th round if FA Cup, in a match where Citizens fielded a young side in dissent to English FA’s scheduling of their match ahead of a lengthy travel to Ukraine on Monday. Manuel Pellegrini will hope to turn things around this time which give themselves a chance of winning a silverware in his final season at the Etihad.

Dynamo Kyiv last played in the round of 16 of the Champions League in the 1999/00 season, when their current head coach Serhiy Rebrov was leading the attack.

Dynamo Kiev vs Manchester City : Team Form Comparison

Dynamo Kyiv have been on an excellent form, winning their last 5 matches and conceding only one goal. I guess this will be a morale boosting statistics for the players and fans. They played their last competitive match in December as the team went on to the winter-break since then.

Manchester City are not having a convincing form as they have been average in their last six matches, loosing their last match heavily to Chelsea as it ended 5-1 in favour of Chelsea. Their form in the Premier League is also questionable as they suffered back-to-back defeats to Leicester City and Tottenham. Morover, they have struggled in every away match this season.

Dynamo Kiev vs Manchester City : Head-to-Head Stats

Dynamo Kiev x Manchester City Head to Head Meetings Champions League Match 24-Feb-2016 by LeagueLane

Both teams have only met twice since their existence, which was Europa League round of 16 in 2011. Both team were victorious at home but the Ukrainians progressed to the next level on 2-1 aggregate.

These two managers had never met themselves before, this would be a good chance and opportunity for a face off.

Dynamo Kiev vs Manchester City : Prediction

Dynamo Kiev have been on 9 match unbeaten run at home in Europe competitions since February 2014, and have also been on an excellent form, where as Manchester City have been backsliding of late, loosing three straight matches.

I think the game will end in a stalemate 1-1.
