Manchester City - Shakhtar Donetsk
Manchester City have already fared better away from home against Shakhtar Donetsk than they did in the Champions League group stage last season – but a repeat of the home result would do just fine.Goals from David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva earned City a 3-0 win in Kharkiv two weeks ago, which was a big improvement on their 2-1 defeat at the same venue last term – though it did not matter because Pep Guardiola’s side had already won the group.City had earlier won 2-0 at home to the Ukrainians and they would take that scoreline again, not only to ensure they go into Sunday’s Manchester derby brimming with confidence but also to remain in control of Group F having recovered well from an initial setback. Lyon pulled off a 2-1 shock in the Etihad’s first Champions League game of the campaign, but that only ever looked like being a temporary blip for a team who have won 14 out of 17 this season and conceded only two goals in their last 10 matches.Pick: AH 2 (+2,5)
