Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Manchester City
- Sergio Aguero and David Silva net in the first half.
- Vitaliy Buyalskiy pulls one back but Yaya Toure makes it three late on.
PSV Eindhoven 0-0 Atletico Madrid
- Diego Godin has second half goal ruled out for a foul.
- PSV forward Gaston Pereiro sent off for a second bookable offence but hosts survive.
We have all the reaction from Kiev to come after Manchester City put one foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, and gives the Premier League something to smile about after a harrowing set of results in Europe. We're back with the Europa League tomorrow night where Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham take centre stage but until then, goodbye.
I am not sure even in Manuel Pellegrini's wildest dreams he could have wished for a better 90 minutes from his side. Three away goals for Manchester City gives them a 3-1 lead to take into the second leg against Dynamo Kiev. Aguero, Silva and Yaya Toure did the damage and a first ever quarter-final beckons.
Atletico Madrid meanwhile were unable to take advantage of their numerical supremacy as they were held by 10-man PSV. Gaston Pereiro left the hosts with an uphill task with a quarter of the game to go but the Spaniards with Fernando Torres in toe were unable to take a lead into the home leg in three weeks time.

Goal: Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Manchester City (Yaya Toure)
An almost perfect night for City ends with a tie-clinching third goal. A long period of possession ends with Toure exchanging passes with Fernandinho and curling beautifully beyond Shovkovskiy. Goodnight Kiev.
What a miss from Yaya Toure! David Silva's cross is on a plate and the Ivory Coast international rises unmarked five yards out but misses the target. Amazing miss.
Joe Hart with a fine save to keep City level. The ball is pulled back to Buyalskiy, who already has one and he is denied a second with a superb stopper from the England man. How important might that turn out to be by the time the second leg is done?
Plenty of chances for City to re-establish their two-goal lead as Silva's cross is spilled by Shovkovskiy. Now both Aguero and Fernandinho are denied by the Kiev stopper. Hosts living dangerously.
In a game of few chances there are two in as many minutes for Atletico, who now have the numerical advantage. First, fabi is kept out by Zoet before substitute Fernando Torres (remember him?) skies a half-volley on the run. A tough final 20 minutes in store for the Dutch side.
Red card: Gaston Pereiro (PSV)
The referee had threatened to show a second yellow card to the Uruguayan not five minutes ago but now that threat has turned into a reality as Pereiro is dismissed for a petulant jump into his opponent.
Danilo Silva off with a hamstring problem for Dynamo. Rebrov forced into a third change as Makarenko comes on.
Ball in the net in Edinhoven but it is chalked off immediately. Diego Godin gets up high from a corner and heads in but the referee adjudges him to have fouled his marker and a free-kick is awarded. Not so much a foul but a full blown piggy-back from the Atletico defender.
Goal: Dynamo 1-2 Manchester City (Vitaliy Buyalsky)
Life in Dynamo Kiev yet. Otamendi only half clears a cross from the left and it falls to Buyalskiy who hits it first time past Kompany, off Otamendi and beyond Joe Hart.
Should Manchester city have had a penalty. Sterling goes down under the challenge of Dragovic but the referee waves away the appeals. Foolish to go down as he was one-on-one with Shovkovskiy.
Anything good from Dynamo is coming through Yarmolenko and he gives Clichy another run around, coming inside but shooting wide of Hart and his right-hand post.
Veloso swings in a free-kick from the right which is punched firmly away by Joe Hart. Not looked overly surely of himself the England goalkeeper but what he has done, has been effective.
Teodorczyk off and Moraes on for Dynamo in a second change made by Sergei Rebrov in this game. All going the way of Manchester City as the second half begins.
Back under way in Eindhoven. A bit behind in Kiev.
A fine first half display from Manchester City has them already dreaming of a first ever quarter-final place in this competition. Sergio Aguero and David Silva with the goals and the only question is how it hasn't been more. Aguero could have had a hat-trick while Dynamo have been listless and bar an impressive start have looked like a team who have not played a competitive game for 11 weeks.
In Eindhoven meanwhile, Antoine Griezmann has spurned the best chance as PSV continue to hold Atletico Madrid. Cagey first half it must be said.
Half time: PSV 0-0 Atletico
Half time: Dynamo Kiev 0-2 Manchester City
Into stoppage time in Eindhoven and Kiev.
Goal: Dynamo Kiev 0-2 Manchester City (David Silva)
A first ever Champions League quarter-final is within touching distance now as City double their lead with five first half minutes remaining. Aguero and Sterling combine down the left and the latter's low cross is finished high into the roof of the net by Silva.
The chances keep coming for Manchester City and will they live to regret passing up the chance to double their lead? Fernando, who has been imperious, wins the ball in the Dynamo half and Aguero feeds Toure but Shovkovskiy gets down well to make the save.
Now PSV go down the other end and should be ahead themselves. Locadia is kept out by Oblak from all of six yards. Entertaining tie this.
