Manchester City v Shakhtar Donetsk betting tips – City set to be slickers again

Posted on: 5th November 2018

It’s strange to think that City lost their Champions League group opener at home to Lyon and they only managed to overcome Hoffenheim in the last few minutes to get their campaign up and running.

However, it’s been plain sailing since then and they thrashed Shakhtar away from home which suggests a similar scoreline will be on the cards here.

Pep Guardiola saw his City team win 6-1 against Southampton on Sunday and might consider giving one or two players a rest ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby, with Kevin de Bruyne’s absence barely being felt.

Raheem Sterling has been a revelation this season as he continues his excellent development under Pep, while Sergio Aguero is proving lethal in front of goal and there is excellent competition for places.

Shakhtar have managed to score four Champions League goals but might run into brick walls against a City defence which is usually stout when it comes to keeping out the opposition.

The best that they can hope for is keeping things tight and hoping to nick a point although they’ll be aware of the task that faces them.
