Manchester City are the only English representative in the Champions League football, who can possibly make it to quarter-finals. Chelsea are out, after being beaten by French Champions PSG home and away. And Arsenal’s hope is at the mercy of Barcelona after being beaten 0-2 in the first leg at home.
The Citizens are currently fourth in the Premier League, trailing the league leaders Leicester City by 12 points. Though they have a game in hand, winning the EPL has become more and more impossible to achieve on weekly bases. Especially with eight games left to go. So they have to make the most of this UCL. Or else, Pellegrini’s team can be satisfied with only the League Cup trophy they have won last month. But the fans won’t be happy for it.
So, tonight they will face Ukrainian great Dynamo Kiev at home, after beating them 3-1 away. City have the upper hand off course. But we all know how sloppy the Citizens are at home agains any opponents.
This will be an interesting match. Let’s just enjoy it.
