Competition: Champions League
Market: Manchester City to beat Shakhtar Donetsk
Odds: 15/8 @ Bet365
The Champions League is back for another massive round of games as the competition reaches boiling point. As it is the final cluster of matches, the three points on offer will decide who stays in European competition this season, and who is eliminated. With this in mind, Manchester City travel to face Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.
For Shakhtar Donetsk, it has been an impressive season in the Champions League so far. After five games they have won three times and lost twice, which has seen them onto nine points so far. While they are six points shy of Manchester City, they find themselves three points clear of third-placed Napoli with just a game to go. Any kind of points from their game will send them through to the knock-out stages, but a defeat coupled with a Napoli win would knock them out. While the hosts should try to play in a positive style, they may find themselves dropping deeper and deeper in order to protect whatever they have.
For Manchester City, this is another game to assert their dominance. After five matches they have the maximum amount of points, scoring 13 goals and conceding just three times. While a defeat would not see them lose their grip on top spot, they will want to go through unbeaten, which would further display their credentials in Europe. With this in mind, we are backing Manchester City to beat their hosts with odds of 15/8 from Bet365.
