Manchester City will look to bag all three points when they play against Shakhtar Donetsk in their next match in the Champions League. The midweek clash will be played at the Etihad Stadium as the Citizens will look to get their second win after they won their first match in this season’s competition against Dutch champions Feyenoord in their own backyard.

The Citizens have been in great form of late, scoring goals at will. Their last match was against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, which they won by 5-0 and clinched their fifth victory of the season so far.

While Sergio Aguero went on to add to his tally to make it six goals in six matches, Raheem Sterling chipped in with a brace and Leroy Sane and Fabian Delph scored one each to take all three points from the game. Manager Pep Guardiola will hope for something similar from his side and win their next match in the Champions League as well.

Defence

The defence has been rock solid in the recent matches, with the likes of Kyle Walker, Nicolas Otamendi, John Stones and Benjamin Mendy helping their goalkeeper Ederson to keep clean sheets in consecutive matches in the domestic as well as European fronts. The Spanish gaffer will hope to get the same amount of dedication from his back four in their next match against the Ukranian side in the Champions League.

Midfield

While Fernandinho is supposed to play in his role as a defensive midfielder in the next match once again, Leroy Sane, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Raheem Sterling will be expected to excel in their roles in the midfield as well. It will be crucial for all of the midfielders to dominate the proceedings from the word go in the midweek clash in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Attack

Supported ably by the wingers Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling, who have been among goals in the last few matches, the Citizens will have their attack spearheaded by their talismanic striker Sergio Aguero, who is the current top scorer in the Premier League with six goals to his name and together they will look to make most of the weakness of the opposition and score as many as possible to give them an extra advantage over their rivals in the group stage this season.

Predicted Lineup

Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, Sterling, De Bruyne, Silva, Sane, Aguero.
