manchester-city vs shakhtar-donetsk Head to Head:

Manchester City have won two and lost one of their three Champions League meetings with Shakhtar Donetsk, with the most recent being their 3-0 win in Ukraine a few weeks ago.

manchester-city vs shakhtar-donetsk Tip Reason:

Shakhtar Donetsk have never won an away European match in England in seven attempts (W0 D1 L6) – in their most recent game there, they lost 0-2 to Man City. Manchester City have lost their last three home Champions League games, all in 2018 and all by the same scoreline – 1-2 against Basel, Liverpool and Lyon. Shakhtar have lost seven of their last nine away Champions League matches (W1 D1), though they avoided defeat in their last away game at Lyon, drawing 2-2. Should Man City lose against Shakhtar, they will be the first English side in the history of the European Cup/Champions League to lose four consecutive home matches – the only other side to lose three in a row are Spurs in November 2016. Ukrainian sides have never won in England in 28 attempts in European competition (W0 D6 L22) – the last team to avoid defeat were Dynamo Kiev in March 2016 at the Etihad against Manchester City, a 0-0 draw. Since his Champions League debut for Man City in September 2011, only Sergio Aguero (33) has been involved in more goals for the Citizens than David Silva (15, 7 goals, 8 assists). Shakhtar Donetsk faced 24 shots in their 0-3 defeat to Man City on MD3, the most they’d faced in a Champions League game since September 2015 against Real Madrid (26). 21 of Shakhtar’s last 22 away Champions League goals have been scored by Brazilian players; the last Brazilian to score at the Etihad against Man City in the competition was Roberto Firmino for Liverpool in April 2018.
