Manchester City vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction 26 September 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: City of Manchester Stadium
Match date: 26.09.2017 at 19:45

On September 26 2017 at 19:45 at the City of Manchester Stadium in the upcoming match of the Champions League Group Stage second round the local Manchester City will host their guests Shakhtar from Donetsk.

You might have noticed already that Manchester City improved their performance since the beginning of the championship and now they can be considered to be one of the strongest clubs of their national championship. They started their strong winning series with the victory against Liverpool 5:0. The Citizens played five games in August and finished them with 22:1 goal difference. In the first round game of the group stage Manchester City outplayed Feyenoord with the devastating 0:4.

It seems to us that Paolo Fonseca and his side know how to make conclusions after the mistakes they make. We thought so after their victory against Zirka from Kropyvnytskyi 2:4 in the latest match of the national championship. That victory was really important for the team psychologically and it also helped improve the situation in the Ukrainian Premier League for them. Moreover, the leaders of the championship Dynamo lost points in the latest match which let Shakhtar come back to the first place in the standings.

The match on Tuesday will be the first one played between Manchester City and Shakhtar. Guardiola's side seems to be in really good conditions now, as we have already said. They are now the leaders of the national championship, even though it's just because of their better goal difference compared to Manchester United. Moreover, Shakhtar won't have their leaders Darijo Srna as he has some problems with doping control. We think that the hosts are going to win confidently in the upcoming match.
