City draw Dynamo Kiev in Round of 16

City will face Dynamo Kiev in the UEFA Champions League Last 16.

Manuel Pellegrini's will play the first leg in Ukraine on Wednesday 24 February and the 2nd leg at the Etihad will take place on Tuesday 15 March.

Supporters are advised that the first leg in Ukraine will be played behind-closed-doors due to UEFA sanctions.

Dynamo's path to the Last 16: FC Porto and Maccabi Tel Aviv were both seen off as Dynamo Kiev reached the Last 16 for the first time since the late 1990s. Ex-Spurs striker Sergey Rebrov guided the Ukrainian side through along with Chelsea from Group G.

Top scorer: Andriy Yarmolenko (2)

Manager: Sergey Rebrov

Stadium: NSC Olimpiyskiy (70,000 capacity)

City links: Andrei Kanchelskis represented both clubs in the 1990s.

Previous meetings: Twice (Europa League 2010/11) Dynamo Kiev dumped City out of the Europa League in March 2011 thanks to a 2-1 aggregate win. City won the home leg 1-0 thanks to Aleksandar Kolarov’s goal but that wasn’t enough to overturn the 2-0 first-leg deficit.
