Manchester City are through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history despite playing out a 0-0 draw against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium.
Having recorded a 3-1 win in the first leg, expectations were high that the Citizens will complete a double over the visiting Ukrainian champions.
However, that was not the case as City laboured all 90 minutes but could not get any goal on the night. The historic night was also blighted with injuries as central defenders Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi were forced out within the first 25 minutes of action.
The home side had the better chances and looked the more likely to break the deadlock, but given Dynamo’s lacklustre display, many would have expected the Premier League side to have scored a handful of goals this evening.
The visiting side came close to getting on the scoresheet in the 84th minute when a cross into the box fell to Yarmolenko, who had a free header from six yards out, but he missed the target as the ball bounced wide.
It was not too embarrassing for the player, though, as the offside flag had already been raised. Minutes later, Yarmolenko was involved again as he believed that he deserved a penalty after going to ground following a tussle with Fernadinho, but it was not to be.
In the final few minutes of the match, Hart had a handful of saves to make and managed to keep a clean sheet.
