Manchester City vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester City have been turning on the style in recent matches. The club has scored over 2.5 goals in three out of the last five games, while they could have scored much more than three goals in the recent meeting with Shakhtar Donetsk. City became the first English team to win away against Shakhtar Donetsk and they completely dominated the Ukrainian outfit. Even if Guardiola decides to go with squad rotation, City will still have plenty of chances against a Shakhtar Donetsk outfit that needs to win the game in order to have a chance of qualification to the knockout stages.

City have been able to keep six sheets in the last seven league matches at the Etihad Stadium. Even though the Champions League record at home has taken a beating with three consecutive defeats, I would back City to keep the first clean sheet at home in Europe since November of last year.

Manchester City win and over 3.5 goals – 5/6

Manchester City clean sheet – 8/13

Manchester City scored over 2.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Manchester City have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 4 games against Shakhtar Donetsk

Shakhtar Donetsk saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Shakhtar Donetsk saw over 1.5 goals in 4 out of their last 4 games played against Manchester City
