Dynamo Kiev's heartbeat for much of the campaign, Ukraine forward Artem Milevskiy is looking for more of the same against Manchester City FC.
Dynamo struck eight goals, and conceded only one, in their round of 32 victory against Beşiktaş JK, but must now pass Premier League hopefuls Manchester City if they are to reach the quarter-finals. Both sides topped their sections in the group stage, Dynamo doing so with the help of five Milevskiy goals.
Olexandr Aliyev, came back to the Ukrainian capital in January after a year at FC Lokomotiv Moskva, but is ineligible for European action. At Dynamo, he is reunited with coach Yuri Semin, who himself returned to the club at the end of last year.
Another player who will be tried to see off Manchester City is Andriy Shevchenko, who scored against the Manchester club during his time with Chelsea FC.
Manchester City haven't played with all their best players away from home before this season, and are more comfertable at home. If they are going to rest some of their best players, it is more likely that City will be defending themselves in this mtch and go for a draw.
I don't think that City's form away from home is impressive enough to hold on Milievsky and Shevchenko. Kiev is good at home, and in the cold Russia, Kiev has an advantage here too. Kiev's aggressive style at home can surprise City and take a small win here.
