Manchester City (Home)
The reigning English champions are slowly bringing their momentum back since the lost against the current Premier League leaders Liverpool 3-1 that slipped them on the 4th place before the break. They thrashed Chelsea 2-1 at home that brought them to the 3rd spot of domestic league table, while they remain on top of the Group C table with 10 points from winning 3 of 4 games, drawing 1 and scoring 4th most goals in the competition with 11 goals netted so far. Pep Guardiola’s men are also the top scorers in the Premier League with 37 goals netted in 13 matches. The draw against Atalanta 1-1 in a Champions League match and the lost to Liverpool broke their 5 games winning streak across all competitions since losing to Wolverhampton 0-2 at home. They have won 5 home matches in a row after that lost to Wolves where they have scored 2 or more goals in each of those victories.
Shakhtar Donetsk (Away)
The visitors are unbeaten in 4 matches across all competitions where they have scored 3 or more goals in each, won 3 and drawn 1 since losing to Dynamo Kyiv in a Ukraine Cup 2-1 match, which is also their only lost on the road in their last 5 away games across all competitions, won 3 and drawn 1.
