With the Champions League group stage entering its second phase, matchday four cranks up the battle for progression to the last 16 in Europe’s top club competition.
In Group F, Manchester City sit in pole position to reach the knockout rounds and Pep Guardiola’s side can all but assure themselves of qualification with a win at the Etihad Stadium against Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Ukrainian Premier League leaders were soundly beaten on home soil a fortnight ago, thanks to goals from David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva – but Paulo Fonseca’s side could yet deliver a shock in the return fixture.
Manchester City remain without the services of goalkeeper Claudio Bravo through injury while Kevin De Bruyne and Eliaquim Mangala are also missing for the hosts.
Both Ilkay Gundogan and Nicolas Otamendi will return to the fold however, though they are likely to start on the bench.
The visitors are without Fernando or Ivan Ordets and may have to make do without Marlos too – but otherwise have a clean bill of health.
Junior Moraes will lead the charge from the front for Paulo Fonseca’s side as they chase an unexpected result in Manchester.
With virtually every honour collected at the Etihad Stadium across the past decade, Manchester City’s campaign to crown themselves champions of Europe resumes once more as they host Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won all major domestic honours, including the Premier League and FA Cup
But success across the continent has continued to elude them in this era of dominance.
Now competing in their eighth consecutive Champions League season, they will hope to better their best finish in the competition, achieved in 2016 when they slipped out in the semi-finals to Real Madrid.
First though, they must get into the knockout rounds and they can all but assure themselves of passage to the last 16 with victory over the Ukrainian Premier League holders.
Potential Shakhter Donetsk XI: Pyatov; Butko, Kryvtsov, Rakitskiy, Ismaily; Maycon, Stepanenko; Wellington Nem, Alan Patrick, Taison; Júnior Moraes
Potential Manchester City XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy; Fernandinho, David Silva, Bernardo Silva; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling.
