Perhaps this is the season where Manchester City are left to focus on finally landing the Champions League title considering that they’re already playing major catch-up with Liverpool in the Premier League.

Team news | League Table | Odds

At the time of writing, the Citizens are nine points behind the Reds in the table and that currently looks like an insurmountable gap, although Pep Guardiola’s side are still the favourites to win the European Cup and they should enjoy a routine win against Shakhtar Donetsk.

The teams met in Kharkiv a couple of months ago and it was the English side which ran out 3-0 winners, with City then beating the other teams in Group C by a comfortable margin and it puts them firmly in the driving seat.

The champions of England put five goals past Atalanta at the Etihad Stadium and they’ll be confident of doing a number against a Ukrainian side who have conceded nine times in their seven matches.

This includes a crazy 3-3 draw away to Dinamo Zagreb who actually led 3-1 going into injury-time before their opponents were able to score two late goals and actually land a share of the spoils.

It actually means Shakhtar are second in the group on account of away goals scored, although we’re not sure they’ll be able to live with whatever City team are fielded in this encounter.

Guardiola might use the occasion to field David Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus among others, although City will want to go to Zagreb on 11 December already through to the last sixteen so that an experimental team can be fielded in their final group encounter.

We’re happy to back Manchester City at -2 on the Asian Handicap considering that the home side look capable of covering that sort of deficit and probably going on to win by a more handsome margin.
