That is the challenge facing them again on Thursday, as they attempt to edge their way into the quarter-finals. Yuri Semin's Kiev will be no pushovers, though, despite their record against English opposition making for disappointing reading.
The Ukrainian giants have never won in England, in nine attempts, while their last two visits to Manchester saw them fail to find the target against Sir Alex Ferguson's United. They have, however, won their last three games on the road in the Europa League and are now unbeaten in seven, since losing to FC Sheriff during the group stage.
Manager Roberto Mancini has revealed Tevez is in need of a rest following his recent dip in form, but the Argentinian may have to wait for the international break with City needing to overturn a two-goal deficit this evening. Mancini said: “Carlos needs to work in the next week. In the last 45 days, it's been impossible. “If we have 20 or 23 players when we play four or five games in two weeks, we would be able to change six players every game. “We don't have that option and when you can't train it's difficult to keep the same level for one month or 45 days. That's the same for all the players.”
