Shakhtar Donetsk to draw with Manchester City in final Champions League group game

Manchester City have already secured their place in the last-16 of the Champions League, having notched five wins from five in Group F, so Pep Guardiola is likely to ring the changes for their final qualifcation game of the group stages, as they face a trip to a Shakhtar Donetsk side who only need a point to guarantee their qualification to the knockout stages, along with the Premier League leaders.

  • Manchester City have won all five Champions League games this season
  • Shakhtar Donetsk need a point to guarantee qualification to last-16
  • Manchester City beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 earlier in the campaign.

How Will It Go?

If there was something riding on this match then City would be red-hot favourites to down the Ukrainian outfit, but with Guardiola likely to rest a host of key players ahead of Sunday's Manchester Derby then it's no surprise to see Shakhtar installed as the 17/10 favourites with Betway, while City are as big as 15/8 with Betfair Sportsbook to maintain their 100% record.

However, you have to feel that the home side will be more than happy with a draw after 90 minutes, as they are currently three points clear of Napoli in Group F, and while the Italian side should ease past whipping boys Feyenoord, a point will be enough for Shakhatr, and City are sure to not go and chase the game, with such a huge Premier League match at the weekend, so the 12/5 with bet365 for a draw is the way to go.
Match Odds:

Goals Hard To Come By

City have been netting for fun all season, and have already amassed 13 Champions League goals this season, but Guardiola could well rest both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, while Kevin De Bruyne is banned for the visitors, so will be another key cog of they attacking line-up not lining up on Wednesday evening.

So, it could be an uncharacteristic City clash that is devoid of goals, and the eye-catching bet is for there to be under 2.5 goals, which is 11/10 with Betfair Sportsbook, and with both sides likely to sit back then it could be a fairly uneventful Champions League tie for the neutral.

Scoreline?

With both teams happily settling for a draw then you have to feel that the most attractive betting proposition in the correct score market is the 6/1 on offer with William Hill, while some could even enjoy the 11/1 with bet365 for a 0-0 stalemate, but in terms of first goalscorer betting it's paramount that punters wait for the team selection, as Guardiola is bound to shuffle his pack ahead of a crunch weekend.
