Shakhtar Donetsk v Manchester City Betting Tips & Predictions | UEFA Champions League Match Previews.
6th December 2017 – 19:45, Oblasny Sport Komplex, Kharkiv.
Match Preview & Team News
Group F of this year’s edition of UEFA Champions League has been decided when it comes to the winner. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have demolished all opponents so far and collected the maximum of 15 points. As for the 2nd position, which also secures a spot in the playoffs, the champions of Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk are in a great situation. All they need is one point in front of the home crowd against not so motivated Citizens. This clash is scheduled for Wednesday night.
Another positive outcome for Shakhtar could be that Feyenoord snatches one or three points in Rotterdam against Napoli. This would mean an automatic qualification to the next stage for Paulo Fonseca and his boys. The biggest star playing for the home team at this moment is 26-years old Argentinean striker Facundo Ferreyra. So far he bagged 13 goals in 18 domestic appearances, and is a solid choice if you are after some goal scorers action. Home fans have every reason to feel optimistic. Both games played in Kharkiv so far were won by Shakhtar (against Napoli and Feyenoord).
The bookies have awarded the home team with role of favorites, being backed at 13/10 price to win. Guardiola is most likely going to rest the majority of players from the starting roster, so these odds were pretty much expected.
The first head to head clash was played in late September at Etihad. Man City won it 2-0 thanks to the goals of De Bruyne and Sterling.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
We are chasing some value here and backing the draw at 12/5 price. Hosts have no reason to rush anywhere, and we feel they are going to be satisfied with this outcome.
Goals Market Prediction
Since we won’t see all big stars playing for Man City, Under 2.5 FT at 1/1 makes a lot of sense.
