Shakhtar Donetsk v Man City Tips & Betting Preview

For the third successive year, Manchester City have attracted Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League group.
The both sides possess one victory Founded in Kharkiv (the hosts‘ temporary dwelling )–Shakhtar winning the 2017 encounter 2-1, until City thumped them 3-0 last season–so let us just call this one of the decider, shall we?
City will need to dust themselves down after their defensive operation at Norwich those asserting that Pep Guardiola’s side have lost their magic touch are bonkers. There is enough attacking firepower inside that squad to take any side in the world so are absurd.
To the horror of many fans, Manchester City would be without Aymeric Laporte and John Stones with this particular trip to Ukraine, also while a poor defensive display was their undoing against the Canaries, the negative as a collective is too great to keep slipping-up, and that is why I expect them to win and the two teams to score; possession will still be dominated, opportunities will nevertheless be created.
Nicol??s Otamendi and Fernandinho are Pep’s likely centre-halves on Wednesday an off clean sheet doesn’t look overly likely, especially because City have kept just two clean sheets in their six games this year.
Even though Skahktar have traditionally been excellent at home, draws to Lyon and also Hoffenheim last time to follow with the City conquer capped-off a rather bad Champions League campaign, and that I hope they will bear the full brunt of all City’s fury as Pep indicates the Europe his side imply business once more.
7/4 is a True tempter for this particular one. ??
I am also backing Shakhtar midfielder Taras Stepanenko to be shown a card.
The 30-year-old has been booked at three of his seven Ukrainian Premier League matches this year, and at the Shakhtar side he’s dedicated the number of fouls-per-game for the previous 2 Champions League campaigns.
Stepanenko will soon be the enforcer on Wednesday of his team, and that I enjoy 9/5 a card to be brandished in his leadership.
