UCL: Man City

Man City has just beat Chelsea right at home with a score of 2 - 0 in the Premier League thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez.  Although it is not possible to close the gap with the top team Liverpool, this victory helps the spirit of the Green Man players become much more excited.  Leaving aside the race in the highest league in the fog, Coach Lampard's teachers and students continue towards a victory in the Champions League arena.

Currently, the blue half of Manchester has earned 10 points after 4 matches with 3 wins and 1 draw.  In the group table including names like Dinamo Zagreb, Shakhtar Donetsk or Atalanta, the pressure on Man City is not too great.  They easily took the top spot and created a 5-point gap with the teams below.  The ticket to continue is almost in the hands of the representative of England, so the arrival of Shakhtar Donetsk will not be too heavy for Lampard's army, especially when the opponent is weaker in all aspects.

Shakhtar Donetsk is still showing his determination in the race to win the remaining ticket to the final of the C1 Cup this season.  After 4 matches, this team got 5 points with 1 win, 2 draws and 1 defeat.  Although Shakhtar Donetsk is second in the table, the score Shakhtar Donetsk has only equal to the third place is Dinamo Zagreb, so if you lose points in this round, Shakhtar Donetsk will likely drop to 3rd.

In terms of form, Shakhtar Donetsk is not bad at this time.  They have 4 consecutive unbeaten matches including 3 wins, the rest is 1 draw.  Away, they also lost only 1 match, the rest won 4 and drew 1 in the last 6 matches away from home.  But that was not enough for Shakhtar Donetsk to dream of defeating a big opponent like Man City.  Representatives of England have the advantage at home, where they all won the last 5 times to welcome guests.  It is important that the host is rated many times in all aspects, from class, force to quality of playing.  This match, despite City's absence of many faces due to injury, that does not diminish their confidence against Shakhtar Donetsk.
