Dynamo Kiev vs Man City – 6/4 the bet on Kiev win

| 10.03.2011

Dynamo Kiev are 6/4 in the Europa League betting to win the first leg of their clash with Manchester City and given the strength of their home form, this may be a price worth taking.

Match Odds

Since the appointment of Yuri Semin for his second stint as Kiev coach, the club has gone from strength to strength, particularly in the Europa League where they made a late charge to qualify from Group E.

Meanwhile, they continued this form in the first round of the knockout stages when blowing away Besiktas 8-1 on aggregate and they will now harbour hopes of another big win to secure a spot in the quarter finals.

Kiev are unbeaten in their last six European games and have not been beaten in Europe on their own patch since 2009, when Barcelona left with a 2-1 victory.

Their chances of a win at the Valeri Lobanovskyi Stadium are also enhanced by the fact that Manchester City are without a victory in their last three Europa League away games.

Manchester City have proved more than adept this season at shutting up shop when required and with the likes of Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko in attack they are always capable of sneaking a goal.

It is 9/5 in the Europa League betting that Manchester City leave the Ukraine with a priceless victory, while they are likely to also be content with the draw, which can be backed at 23/10.

Correct Scoreline

There is every chance that Manchester City will follow an identical gameplan as that they executed in the last round when progressing at the expense of Greek outfit Aris.

Aris are similar to Kiev in respect that they are fairly formidable at home, but poor travellers and so Manchester City may set up to keep things tight and then push on back at Eastlands in the second leg.

Therefore, 7/1 is worth considering on the game ending 0-0, while 10/11 seems great value that fewer than 2.5 goals are scored.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Dynamo Kiev beating Manchester City 1-0 and Andriy Shevchenko scoring the only goal would return £700. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
