So it might only be half-time, but what an impressive first-half it was from Manchester City. The second leg, which takes place on 15 March back in northern England, *should* be a straightforward affair for the Premier League side. 

If only their neighbours Manchester United had it so easy. Join us again tomorrow when we find out whether Louis van Gaal's men can avoid a Europa League embarrassment against Danish minnows FC Midtylland. See you then!

Mistakes not acceptable - Rebrov

Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Man City

Sergei Rebrov has grim expression on his face. Not surprising really - his side face an uphill battle to reach the quarter-finals.

"Of course we are disappointed but we made a lot of mistakes in the middle of the pitch. That is not acceptable against a team like Manchester City," the Dynamo Kiev manager tells BT Sport.

"The winter break didn't affect us, the fact is we played one of the best teams in Europe. The players were a little nervous, it was their first time in last 16 and they felt that. When Man City scored we lost confidence.

"When we scored I hoped we could get back into it. We had chances but couldn't score."

'Anything can happen in the last eight'

Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Man City

As our man John alludes to, City have long known the importance of topping their group.

Finish top, don't draw the mighty Barcelona in the last 16. Simple.

"It is important to improve every year and we have been unlucky to play Barcelona in each of the past two seasons," Blues manager Manuel Pellegrini tells BT Sport.

"Now I hope we can advance one stage after that. And when it is just the eight best teams in Europe anything can happen."

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini might well be justified in his decision to play the kids at the weekend, but he isn't one to crow about being right.

The Chilean plays the team selection question with a straight bat...

"Unfortunately we have just 13 fit players, we had four defenders on the bench tonight and two young players," he tells BT Sport.

"So it is important to have the return of important players and important to make changes. That's difficult at the moment but I hope some attacking players will return soon."

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, speaking to BT Sport: "I'm very happy because it is a very good result.

"It is not finished but playing away and having a two-goal lead is very good. The team played well and had lots of chances. Maybe when it was 2-1 we had moments of doubt, but then we got the third goal.

"Is the tie settled? No, it is important in football to never think it is finished. But to have that third goal gives us more confidence for the second leg."

"Man City were very, very good – there was a little spell at the start of the second half when Kiev came at them, but in the end City might feel they could probably have won by another goal or so. City won this game comfortably. Yes, Kiev had 11 weeks off but that was not City's problem."

Our chalkboard can't do the quality of Yaya Toure's finish justice. But it can show you how brilliant City's patient build-up to the third goal was. Dynamo were chasing shadows as the visitors knocked the ball around the defenders like they were training ground cones.

'We have a fairly good chance of going through'

Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Man City

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany speaking to BT Sport: "The performance was good, with a lot of high pressing, 3-1 is a good result and we are happy with it.

"Joe Hart is an unbelievable keeper. When he was called upon he did it well.

"We are going into the second leg with a fairly good chance to go through, which has not been the case before. We looked like a team that was hungry for success tonight.

"I feel like I am contradicting myself a little after the FA Cup but I feel like every cup is a priority. Every game is a priority. It is not easy to predict which competition you will do well in."

I didn't see a hint of a smile from the seemingly-emotionless Manuel Pellegrini at full-time. But the ice-cool Chilean must be tempted to feel rather smug with himself.

His decision to rest his stars for the FA Cup trip to Chelsea has well and truly paid off. City's finest Champions League performance? Certainly up there with the win in Sevilla back in December.

PSV Eindhoven fight to live another day after holding Atletico Madrid despite playing the final 22 minutes with 10 men following Gaston Pereiro's red card.

The Dutch champions weathered a late Atletico storm to frustrate Diego Simeone's side, who wasted several chances to take a lead back to Spain for the second leg.

Atletico, the 2014 runners-up, will start the return match in three weeks time favourites to advance to the quarter-finals.

"That was 10 times harder to score than the header that Toure missed. He just caressed that left footed and curled it around the goalkeeper. The keeper had absolutely no chance."

GOAL - Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Man City

Yaya Toure

Beautiful! And just what Manchester City deserve. A patient build-up from City explodes into life when Yaya Toure exchanges passes with Fernandinho, then curls a gorgeous left-footed shot into the left corner from 20 yards.

If I was a betting man then I still wouldn't throw a pound on this game finishing 2-1 in City's favour. But I wouldn't know whether to stick it on 2-2 or 1-3 either. Balancing rather precariously is this one.

Oh my word. How has Yaya Toure not sealed this match? City hold off another Kiev attack before going back on the offensive themselves. Raheem Sterling does all the hard work, twisting and turning on the left, dinking up a delightful ball into the Dynamo six-yard box on a platter. It may as well have a salad garnish on it. But Toure cannot snaffle the chance, somehow heading wide with the goal gaping.

That Kiev storm has returned and is threatening to ruin City's night...

GREAT SAVE!

Dynamo Kiev 1-2 Man City

The action switches to the other end and Joe Hart makes a world class one-handed save to stop a shot from goalscorer Vitaliy Buyalskiy, diving low to his right to do so.

That could so easily have been 2-2.

City knock the ball around close to the halfway line, then spring forward again with the same intent and ferocity that they did in the first half. Twice in fact. 

The away side carve open the Dynamo defence, like a sharp knife through a succulent piece of roast beef. Sergio Aguero is inches away from turning in a low cross from the right.

Seconds later City attack from the right again and this time Aguero does connect with the ball.

Dynamo keeper Olexandr Shovkovskiy does just about enough.
