Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side welcome Shakhtar Donetsk to the Etihad Stadium in Group C of the UEFA Champions League this evening.
Manchester City’s winning run in this season’s UEFA Champions League was ended on Matchday 4, but Guardiola’s side are nevertheless within touching distance of the last 16 as they welcome a Shakhtar Donetsk side who suffered a chastening defeat on their last visit to Manchester.
This is the third successive season in which the teams have been drawn together in the UEFA Champions League group stage, with City enjoying much the better of the previous encounters – including a 3-0 win in Kharkiv on Matchday 1 this season thanks to goals from Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.
City have ten points, five more than both Shakhtar and Dinamo Zagreb with Atalanta on one. The English club will therefore be through if they avoid defeat against Shakhtar or if Dinamo do not beat Atalanta in Group C’s other Matchday 5 fixture.
City will be confirmed in first place if they win, or if they draw and Dinamo do not win.
Shakhtar will qualify with a win if Dinamo lose to Atalanta, due to Shakhtar’s head-to-head away goals superiority over Dinamo.
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.
