Shakhtar Donetsk v Manchester City betting preview  

Shakhtar Donetsk will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run to 12 games

Shakhtar have drawn 2-2 against both Hoffenheim and Lyon so far in the UCL. The Ukrainian outfit has an enviable home record in this competition, as they have lost just two of their last 12 matches at home - against Real Madrid and PSG respectively - and have failed to score just once in their last 11 at home in the competition. They won the honour of being the first side to beat Manchester City last season, with a 2-1 win in Ukraine taking 3 points off The Citizens at the start of December. The Miners have beaten Desna (1-0) on Friday and ended a streak of two draws in a row. Plus, they have scored 31 goals in 12 league matches so far this season.

Brazilian winger Taison will miss this one due to injury which is certainly a blow. Alan Patrick, then, should move into the number 10 role with Maycon starting alongside Taras Stepanenko in midfield. Fernando provides a further option in that zone. Up front, Marlos and Sergiy Bolbat will start out wide, supporting the lone striker Junior Moraes, the scorer of 12 goals in 15 matches this term. The likes of Ismaily, Rakitskiy, Krivstov and Butko are likely to form the four man backline this term.

Man City have bagged five wins and a draw in their last 6 outings across competitions

Manchester City have endured a disappointing Champions League campaign so far. The Citizens lost at home to Lyon and needed a late winner to beat Hoffenheim last time out. They returned from the International break with a convincing 5-0 win over Burnley over the weekend and remain unbeaten after 9 matchweeks. Pep Guardiola's men met Shakhtar at the group stage of the Champions League last year. The Citizens won 2-0 at Etihad and lost 2-1 in Ukraine after they had already topped the group.

The visitors are without Danilo and Claudio Bravo while Kyle Walker should return to the starting XI at right-back after being rested on Saturday. Kevin De Bruyne made his long-awaited return from injury against the Clarets but the Belgian is not ready to start important matches such this one. Ilkay Gundogan is a doubt having missed the last few weeks with a hamstring problem. Sergio Aguero could be rested and that would see Gabriel Jesus leading the line, with Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sanè on his flanks. David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho shoulf feature from the off in the middle of the park.
