For the third year, Manchester City have drawn against Shakhtar Donetsk in their Champions League group. Both sides have one victory apiece in Kharkiv (the hosts’ temporary home)–Shakhtar winning the 2017 encounter 2-1, before City thumped them 3-0 last year –so let’s just call this one of the decider, shall we? City will have to down dust following their performance at Norwich those asserting that the side of Pep Guardiola have lost their touch are utterly bonkers. There’s enough attacking firepower inside that squad to choose any side in the world into the cleaners, so are absurd. To the terror of many lovers, Manchester City would soon be without Aymeric Laporte and John Stones for this trip to Ukraine, and while a poor defensive display was their undoing against the Canaries, the side as a collective would be too great to last slipping-up, and that is why I expect them to win and both teams to score; possession will still be dominated, opportunities will still be created. So an away blank sheet does not look likely because City have retained only two clean sheets in their games this year — nicol??s Otamendi and Fernandinho are Pep on Wednesday — hardly watertight. Even though Skahktar have traditionally been excellent in the home, brings to Lyon and Hoffenheim last time to follow with the City conquer capped-off a fairly bad Champions League effort, and that I hope they will bear the entire brunt of City’s fury as Pep shows the Europe his facet imply business once again. 7/4 is a tempter for this particular one. ?? I am also financing Shakhtar midfielder Taras Stepanenko to have shown a card. The 30-year-old has been reserved in three of his seven Premier League games this season, and he has dedicated the second-highest number of fouls-per-game from the Shakhtar side. Stepanenko will likely soon be his team’s enforcer on Wednesday, and I enjoy 9/5 a card to be brandished in his direction. Read more: cricket odds and picks
