Manchester City vs Shakhtar Donetsk– 19.45 GMT kickoff
It’s back to Champions League duty for Pep Guardiola’s team tonight as they take on the Ukranian side. A win tonight would see them take a tight hold on Group F.
Both teams looked impressive when winning their group stage matches last time and both sides will have a fair degree of confidence tonight. Shakhtar were particularly impressive when beating Napoli and will be looking to build on that.
Man City are also in excellent form and in all competitions. They’ve seen off Liverpool and Feyenoord in recent matches and have been firing in the goals to great effect. It’s typical of Man City to show this kind of form early season. Whatever happens as the season progresses, it’s fair to say, you wouldn’t want to be a team facing them right now.
Man City will be without Ilkay Gundogan and Vincent Kompany, who are still on the injury list. Even so, they have so many top quality players at their disposal, it will be unlikely to give Shakhtar much of a boost in confidence.
On the other hand, a win here would simply bolster the confidence of high flying City. This will be especially welcome as they visit Chelsea this coming weekend.
Manchester City vs Shakhtar Donetsk- Summary
There’s a lot to like about Shakhtar at the moment. They appear to be a well-organised team and will be up for this match. City, however, are in exceptional form and should maintain their great home record and take the win here.
