Venue: Metalist Oblast Sports Complex
Date: Tuesday, October 23
Kick-off: 8pm BST

Manchester City return to Champions League action looking for some consistency as they meet a familiar foe in Shakhtar Donetsk.

Many expected Group F to be a formality for City, but Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions lost their opening game at home to Lyon to blow open the group.

City then went a goal down to Hoffenheim in the first few seconds of their next game, but recovered to earn a vital 2-1 win in Germany.

Guardiola's men now face a trip to Ukraine to face Shakhtar, but will have to be on their toes after losing there 2-1 in last season's group stages.
