Manchester City reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time despite a lethargic second leg goalless draw against Dynamo Kyiv.
City, 3-1 up from the first leg, were in control of the tie but lost both centre-backs Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi to injury early on.
In a slow-paced first-half, neither side threatened a shot on target.
Jesus Navas hit the post with a low drive in the second half and Yaya Toure struck straight at the goalkeeper.
