Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Kick-off:
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
The Citizens are probably on a revenge mission in the Champions League this season. With their dreams of defending the Premier League title down to bare bones, Pep Guardiola will be determined to make their European campaign a grand success.

Winning the Champions League trophy will be a great achievement for Guardiola and City, as the club have been in the market for this trophy for the past few years, all to no avail.

If the Spaniard manages to steer his side to this highly-coveted trophy this season, the club hierarchy might as well decide to erect a statue of the former Barcelona manager right in front of the Etihad Stadium. Don’t be surprised it things play out this way!

Man City v Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

In what was billed by many supporters as the biggest match of the season, Manchester City players felt cold feet as they lined out of the Anfield tunnel to lock horns with the invincible Liverpool. They lost the game by a 3-1 margin to throw their Premier League title hopes right into the air.

At the illustrious Anfield Stadium, the Citizens endured a torrid start to the game, with the hosts racing to an early two goal lead courtesy of two quick-fire goals from Fabinho and Mohammed Salah. Later in the second period, Senegal international Sadio Mane poked the ball home to clinch the three points for the Reds.

Shakhtar, on the other hand, had the mighty Dynamo Kyiv to contend with last time out, in front of the home crowd. They were made to dig really deep to secure the win as the opposition kept things really tight at the back. After registering an early goal, they were forced to defend it for the rest of the match and did that to perfection.

Towards the end of the game, one of Shakhtar’s players received an early shower for a rash challenge and were reduced to ten men. However, they kept their composure, seeing out the rest of the game, to post a 1-0 score-line on the scoreboard.

For this Champions League fixture, Manchester City have to be considered overwhelming favourites to come away with the win. They currently sit atop the standings and easily dispatched the Miners, with a comfortable 3-0 score-line in the reverse fixture. Also, they have the home advantage under their belt, and will be looking to bounce back following the disappointing loss to Liverpool in the Premier League.

When it comes to h2h encounters, Manchester City have been utterly dominant, scoring twelve goals and conceding none in their previous three games. In fact, at this venue, Pep Guardiola’s men are yet to concede a single goal in this competition.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Man City: Aymeric Laporte, Leroy Sané, David Silva, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Rodrigo, Sergio Agüero, Claudio Bravo.

Shakhtar Donetsk: Moraes, Andriy Totovytsky, Oleksandr Pikhalyonok, Maksim Malyshev, Manor Solomon, Marlos Bonfim.

Man City vs Shakhtar Donetsk Predictions

Shakhtar Donetsk have no chance of salvaging anything meaningful from this game as everything points in the losing direction for the Ukrainian team. The away handicap will not do them any favour as well, as they head into the Etihad Stadium tomorrow night.

The Citizens on the other hand, should win this one very comfortable, grabbing a couple of goals in the process. They should not even have to break a sweat to clinch maximum points against this foe.
