Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City Prediction 23 October 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist
Match date: 23.10.2018 at 20:00

On October 23 2018 at 20:00 at the Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist in Kharkiv in the upcoming regular match of the third game week of the UEFA Champions League the Ukrainian Shakhtar Donetsk are going to play against their guests Manchester City.

Shakhtar are known to be really experienced in the Euro Cups. For example, in the previous season they made it to the Round of 16 and they almost had their chances to kick-off the future semifinalists Roma. This summer they had some of the changes as they lost a few important players. They were replaced by the young and less experienced footballers. That’s why we really don’t expect them to repeat the last season success in the competition. We must admit that their results have already got worse as they didn’t win even once in the two past games of the competition. They didn’t manage to outplay neither Hoffenheim nor Lyon. Moreover, they didn’t manage to outplay Dynamo in the domestic competitions and even lost to Zorya. It seems to us that they just lack class at the moment. It seems like the current squad of Shakhtar is probably the weakest in the last few years.

Manchester City are in rather good conditions. The third year of Guardiola is supposed to bring the trophies. At the moment they share the first place in the standings of their national elite division. As for the Champions League, the citizens started it with the cold shower as they lost to Lyon 1:2. It had some good influence on the team as in the next match they easily outplayed Hoffenheim. Now they are one of the favorites of the group and yet it’s not time for them to relax as one single mistake may cost them the place in the play-offs.

These are the teams of really difficult class and they are in different conditions. Manchester City are the obvious favorities of the upcoming match and they are supposed to win in the upcoming match.
