SHAKHTAR DONETSK vs MANCHESTER CITY BETTING PREVIEW 

Shakhtar Donetsk need at least a point to grab a berth in the knockout stages. The Ukrainians were thrashed 3-0 by Napoli on matchday 5, but still stay 3 points clear-off the Serie A side. They do lag behind Napoli in the head to head records so defeat for Shakhtar and a win for Napoli would resign Shakhtar Donetsk to the Europa League. The Pitmen have managed to beat both Napoli and Feyenoord at home and are confident to grab at least a point against a much changed Man City. They are in fine domestic form this season and are currently 4 points better off 2nd placed Dynamo Kiev in the Ukrainian Premier League stadings after their 2-0 home win over Veres Rivne at the weekend.

The home side has several injury concerns, including midfielder Maksym Malyshev winger Taison, and defenders Sergiy Kryvtsoc and Bogdan Butko. Furthermore, former cpatain Dario Srna is suspended. As a result, Viktor Kovalenko may play in a central offensive role behind Facundo Ferreyra, with Bernard and Marlos out wide. Fred and Taras Stepanenko are likely to start in the middle of the park with Ismaily, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Ivan Ordets and Ivan Petryak forming the four man backline.

Manchester City are a massive six points ahead of Shakhtar, and have sealed their progression into the next round of the Champions League having won 5 out of 5 group matches so far, scoring 13 goals and conceding just three (all to Napoli). Earlier away games in this group saw them win 4-2 at Napoli and 4-0 at Feyenoord. Pep Guardiola's men have now won eight games on the bounce in all competitions and remain unbeaten this season. They recorded 14 wins and 1 draw in Premier League, where they top the table with a 8 points gap over Man UTD. Anyway, their last 3 league wins have needed very late goals to secure maximum points.

Pep Guardiola is expected to shuffle his pack looking to rest his best players ahead of the Manchester Derby next weekend. Kevin De Bruyne is suspended while Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Vincent Kompany and Kyle Walker are expected to be benched. Yaya Toure, Claudio Bravo, Phil Foden, Ilkay Gündogan, Eliaquim Mangala and Bernardo Silva will all push for starts. The likes of John Stones and Benjamin Mendy remain out through injury.
