Manchester City welcomes Shakhtar Donetsk
The leader in Group F Manchester City welcomes Shakhtar Donetsk in a match from the UEFA Champions League. Let’s take a trip to the Etihad Stadium to take a look at this match between these two sides. See our winning soccer predictions.
Manchester City shockingly started their participation in the tournament with a home loss against Olympique Marseille, but soon after this they managed to regroup and won two consecutive times against Hoffenheim and Shakhtar. Right now the Cityzens are leaders in the group with one point advantage in front of Lyonnais. A win against Shakhtar could guarantee them a qualification for the 1/8-finals, depending on the result in the other match.
Shakhtar are currently 4th in the group with 2 points. They are on par with the 3rd Hoffenheim, but the German team have a better goal difference. Shakhtar’s chances to reach the 1/8-finals look small, but they can still finish 3rd and enter the Europa League.
City and Shakhtar met in Kharkiv two weeks ago. Their meeting ended with a comfortable 3-0 win for the English side. David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo scored for the Cityzens. Pep Guardiola’s team dominated the home side and won without much of an effort. It was a brilliant display from Manchester City.
It’s hard to think that Man City could suffer a second consecutive loss at home in this group. What happened against Olympique Lyonnais is a history, so now we shall expect to see the Cityzens back to their best. They know how important is the win here and they will do their best to achieve it. For Shakhtar it’s going to be very difficult.
That’s our winning soccer predictions for the Champions League game between Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk at the Etihad Stadium. We wish you good luck!
