City had already created a number of chances to extend its lead so it was little surprise when David Silva popped up at the far post to roll home his side's second. SERGEI SUPINSKY/AFP/AFP/Getty Images

Dynamo found a way back into the game when Vitaliy Buyalskiy's effort deflected off Nicolas Otamendi and flew into the corner. But any hopes the home side had of a comeback were killed off when Toure netted City's third late on. GENYA SAVILOV/AFP/AFP/Getty Images
