Shakhtar vs Manchester City: Shakhtar and Man City meet this Wednesday in Ukraine, in another match of the last round of the Champions’ League group F…
Shakhtar occupies the 2nd place of this group F with 9 points conquered, thanks to their record of 3 wins and 2 losses.
On the goals chapter, the Ukrainians have 7 goals scored and 8 goals conceded, which results on an average of 3 goals per match.
I should highlight the fact that this side managed by Paulo Fonseca has won the two home matches against Feyenoord and Napoli, clearly showing their strength when they play as hosts.
To advance, Shakhtar will have to get points in this duel against the Citizens, although they could advance even if they lose, in case Napoli fail to beat Feyenoord away from home.
Manchester City will finish this group stage in first place of this group F, having conquered 15 points so far. In terms of goals, the Citizens have 13 goals scored and 3 goals conceded, which results on an average of 3.2 goals per match.
Once again, first place is ensured, as well as their presence in the round of 16 as well.
Pep Guardiola will leave in Manchester players such as David Silva and De Bruyne, considering he will also have an important Manchester Derby on the weekend.
Shakhtar vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The Ukrainian side knows that if they want to get some points, they are forced to score, while Manchester City comes into this match without any obligation, which might allow for some passivity in defence.
In turn, the Citizens count with an enormous set of great quality players, so a possible rotation from Guardiola won’t remove a lot offensive firepower from United.
On this context, I believe on a match with some goals that should be even more open as the time goes on, in case Napoli are winning on the Netherlands.
