Dynamo leave Manchester City reeling

FC Dynamo Kyiv 2-0 Manchester City FC
Andriy Shevchenko was among the scorers for the Ukrainian team as they left the visitors fighting to stay in the UEFA Europa League.

Andriy Shevchenko and Oleh Gusev struck as FC Dynamo Kyiv established a two-goal advantage against Manchester City FC in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League round of 16 tie.

Shevchenko, 34, showed he has lost none of his predatory sharpness by turning in Andriy Yarmolenko's inviting cross on 25 minutes. Then, when Manchester City were enjoying their most promising period of the night, Gusev doubled the hosts' lead 13 minutes from time. The Ukrainian team may never have won in England, but that will be of little concern ahead of the return match in seven days' time.

Dynamo goalkeeper Olexandr Shovkovskiy had to be quick off his line early on to prevent Micah Richards reaching a threaded pass from David Silva. Nor was that the only warning sign for the hosts: Aleksandar Kolarov had delivered a dangerous ball across the face of goal during a purposeful start from the English side.

That soon subsided, however, and after Kolarov fired at Shovkovskiy, Dynamo grew into, and began to control, a game which had a decent ebb and flow to it despite the sub-zero temperatures in Kyiv. Dynamo had seen little of the City goal until they went in front through Shevchenko's 67th strike in UEFA competition, with the former AC Milan forward beating goalkeeper Joe Hart to Yarmolenko's teasing left-wing delivery.

The half ended with attempts from the influential Shevchenko and Artem Milevskiy, while after the break Kolarov's effort would have been destined for the top corner but for the head of a Dynamo defender. Only the fingertips of Shovkovskiy then stopped Yaya Touré's measured strike nestling into the bottom corner.

City's Joleon Lescott was next to threaten with a shot from the edge of the box as Roberto Mancini's men started to gain the upper hand. Silva, though, was unable to turn in Pablo Zabaleta's centre when well placed, a miss which proved costly as Gusev rifled in what could be a crucial second for Yuri Semin's team.
