Shakhtar Donetsk – Manchester City : Preview & Prediction
Shakhtar is preparing to receive an opponent who does not succeed him! Indeed, last season, the Ukrainian club was humiliated by the Citizens, 0-3 at home and 6-0 in England! The leader of the Ukrainian championship will want to wash this affront but his staff is of inferior quality to that of the English club. However, Shakhtar remain on 1 draw ahead of Kolos Kovalivka (1-1) in friendly and on 1 short home success in front of FC Zorya Luhansk (4-3). Manchester City has badly prepared this first European meeting since the players of Pep Guardiola lost this weekend on the lawn of Norwich City (3-2). But no worries, the current Liverpool runner-up in the Premier League remained on 2 broad wins in Bournemouth (3-1) and against Brighton and Hove (4-0) at Etihad Stadium. Defeated in the 1/4 final in C1 last season, Manchester City has great ambitions this season and intends to win everything.
