Manchester City 0-0 Dynamo Kiev (3-1 on aggregate)
Manchester City lost defenders Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi to injury as they limped into the Champions League quarter-finals after a dull goalless draw against Dynamo Kiev. Kelechi Iheanacho was not listed for the game.

City should have been celebrating securing a place in the last eight for the first time but by full-time at the Etihad Stadium the mood seemed rather sombre, as the implications of the injuries sank in.
The loss of Kompany, with a tricky run-in ahead, could be particularly galling – although on this occasion his team-mates coped well enough without him to ensure progress courtesy of last-month’s 3-1 win in Ukraine.
It was a largely dreary encounter that only spluttered into life when Yaya Toure attempted to force the issue in the second half, but the closest City came was when Jesus Navas hit the post.

After being locked at 0-0 following both legs of their round of 16 tie and being unable to be separated in extra time, Atletico sealed their passage to the final eight via spot kicks.
The decisive moment came with the shootout level at 7-7 when Luciano Narsingh missed his spot kick for PSV, before Juanfran fired home the winner for the home side.
