Shakhtar Donetsk host Manchester City
Shakhtar Donetsk host Manchester City in a game from Group F of the Champions League. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this game.
Shakhtar started their Champions League campaign with two draws from the first two rounds. In their first game the Ukrainians made a 2-2 draw against Hoffenheim at home. This was followed by another draw with the same result against Olympique Lyonnais on a French soil.
Against Olympique Lyonnais Shakhtar missed a golden opportunity to win. Thanks to two goals from Junior Moraes, the Ukrainians had a healthy lead in the result. But in matter of just two minutes after the break, Moussa Dembele and Leo Dubois equalized for the French team.
Now Shakhtar will make a third try to enjoy their first Champions League win for the season, but against Manchester City it’s going to be, obviously, a pretty difficult task.
The Cityzens surprisingly started their Champions League campaign with a home loss agianst Olympique Lyonnais at the Etihad. But this didn’t stop City from fixing their mistake in the second round, beating Hoffenheim with 2-1 away from home. The German team scored an early goal, but with goals from Sergio Aguero and David Silva, City managed to record a very important win.
Right now Manchester City are second in the group standings with 3 points, being on one point behind the current leader Olympique Lyonnais. Pep Guardiola and his players are aware that a win over Shakhtar could allow them to top the group, which is their primary goal at the moment. That’s why City will think only about the three points when they enter the pitch in Kharkiv.
