Manchester City host Shakhtar Donetsk in Group F of the UEFA Champions League at the Etihad Stadium this evening.
City moved to the top of Group F with victory at Shakhtar Donetsk and are looking for a third straight win to consolidate their advantage in the section, although they have lost their last three home European fixtures.
Shakhtar had never lost at home to English visitors but goals before half-time from David Silva and Aymeric Laporte were added to by Bernardo Silva 19 minutes from time to earn Josep Guardiola’s side a second successive away European victory.
That took City on to six points, one above Lyon – who won in Manchester on matchday one – and four clear of Shakhtar and Hoffenheim.
City will therefore book their place in the round of 16 if they win and Hoffenheim lose in Lyon on matchday four.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 3 from 7.15pm with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT Sport will also air Manchester United’s visit to Juventus from 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 tonight.
