Pep Guardiola’s men won 3-0 in Ukraine just two weeks ago and given the visitors’ away record, another comfortable Citizens win looks on the cards
Manchester City head into their Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk knowing that victory could see them into the knockout stages with two games to spare.
After an impressive 3-0 win in Ukraine just two weeks ago, it is no surprise to see Pep Guardiola’s men priced at just 1/9 (1.11) with SportPesa to take the points here as well.

For all City’s recent dominance, they have actually not won a Champions League game at the Etihad in almost a year, with Basel, Liverpool and most recently Lyon all triumphing there.
However, the Manchester men will be high in confidence after thrashing Southampton 6-1 on Sunday to make it 10 wins in their last 11 games in all competitions.
The visit of Shakhtar represents a perfect chance for City to get back on track in Europe and break that three-match losing streak at home, considering their Ukranian opponents’ away record in this tournament.
Indeed, the Donetsk side have lost seven of their last nine away Champions League games, only winning in Feyenoord in the last three years and falling 2-0 at this ground last September.
Shakhtar usually rely on their home form to progress but having already lost 3-0 in the reverse fixture a fortnight ago, there is very little to suggest that they can spring a massive shock here.
The 50/1 (51.0) price for all new SportPesa customers, then, looks the way to go for those looking to back Man City in this clash on Wednesday night.
