Man City make history following Champions League progression

Manchester City have ensured progression into the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history following their draw with Dynamo Kiev, Skysports reports.

The match ended 0-0, but the Premier League giants finished the match 3-1 winners on aggregate after managing to overcome their opponents in the first leg.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini praised his players despite the stalemate and is now looking to go head-to-head with the best teams in Europe.

“We are very happy for the achievement because it’s important for this club to improve every season,” he said.

“The last two seasons we were unlucky to play against Barcelona in the round of 16. We now arrive in the best eight teams in the competition for the first time.

“We will see how far we can go. We had a very difficult group with teams from the best leagues in Europe and we won it.”

Apart from City, clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Wolfsburg, Benfica, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid have also booked their place in the last eight.

With four teams left to play, there are still two spots left as current holders Barcelona take on Arsenal while Bayern Munich face Juventus later today.

However, despite making history, Pellegrini suffered two injury blows as both Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi were forced off during the match.

He will be wary with his upcoming selection given that his side will take on rivals Manchester United in the league this coming weekend.
