Match background Only this chapter

Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City have been drawn together in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the third year in a row, and the Ukrainian side will hope for a more positive outcome than last season.

• In 2018/19 City won 3-0 in Kharkiv – the first English club to win an away game against Shakhtar – and 6-0 in Manchester, their record UEFA Champions League win although that was subsequently surpassed by the 7-0 defeat of Schalke in the round of 16 second leg.

• City are aiming to reach the knockout stages for the seventh season in a row; Shakhtar have made it to the last 16 in four of their last eight UEFA Champions League appearances, although they missed out 12 months ago.

Previous meetings
• David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva got City's goals at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv on 23 October 2018, ending Shakhtar's seven-game unbeaten record at home to English clubs (W5 D2).

• David Silva also opened the scoring in City's 6-0 home win on matchday four, Gabriel Jesus contributing a hat-trick that included two penalties and Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez completing the scoring. City went through to the round of 16 as group winners, while Shakhtar finished third in the section.

• The teams were paired together for the first time in the 2017/18 group stage, when home sides held the upper hand. City were 2-0 winners in Manchester on matchday two, Kevin De Bruyne and Sterling scoring at the start and end of the second half to secure the points.

• Josep Guardiola's side travelled to Ukraine for their final fixture with a place in the round of 16 already assured, but looking to make it six wins out of six in the section. Instead Shakhtar secured their own place in the knockout stages with a 2-1 victory, goals from Bernard and Ismaily proving enough despite Sergio Agüero's added-time penalty.

Last season: Shakhtar Donetsk 0-3 Manchester City

Form guide
• Shakhtar qualified as winners of the Ukrainian league, claiming the title for the 12th time in 2018/19, when they completed a domestic double for the third season in succession.

• Quarter-finalists in 2010/11, Shakhtar won only one of their six matches in last season's group stage, picking up six points to finish behind City and Lyon in Group F. They picked up only two points at home, drawing with Hoffenheim and Lyon and losing to City, going on to lose 6-3 on aggregate to Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 (2-2 h, 1-4 a).

• The Donetsk club have lost only two of their last 18 home matches in Europe (W11 D5), although they have not won any of the last four. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of the last nine.

• Shakhtar have got out of their UEFA Champions League group in three of their last six participations.

• A 3-2 victory at Hoffenheim on matchday five last season is Shakhtar's only win in their last nine European matches (D4 L4).

Manchester City
• Champions of England for the second season running and sixth overall – four of those titles having come in the last eight years – City also lifted the FA Cup and League Cup in 2018/19, becoming the first English club to win all three domestic trophies in one season.

• This is the Citizens' ninth UEFA Champions League campaign; they have been involved in the group stage every season since 2011/12 and have reached the round of 16 or better in the last six campaigns.

• In 2018/19, City recovered from a matchday one defeat at home to Lyon (1-2) to finish first in Group F ahead of the French club, Shakhtar and Hoffenheim, picking up 13 points. They brushed aside Schalke 10-2 on aggregate in the last 16, but for the second year running lost to English opposition in the quarter-finals, Tottenham eliminating them on away goals after a dramatic 4-4 aggregate draw (0-1 a, 4-3 h).

• Guardiola's side have won eight of their last 15 European matches, home and away – losing six. Away from home it is four wins in seven matches (D1 L2), both defeats coming in England.

• City's record in Ukraine is W2 L2, last season's victory at Shakhtar adding to a 3-1 success at Dynamo Kyiv in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League round of 16.

• City's best UEFA Champions League performance was reaching the 2015/16 semi-finals.

Links and trivia
• Shakhtar's record European defeat was a 7-0 loss at Guardiola's Bayern München in the 2014/15 round of 16. The Pitmen lost four of their five fixtures against Barcelona when Guardiola was in charge, including the 2009 UEFA Super Cup (0-1); their ten games against clubs coached by the Spaniard make him their most frequent opponent in European competition.

• Fernandinho was a Shakhtar player between 2005 and 2013 when he left for City, scoring 31 goals in 183 league outings. He was named Ukraine's Premier League player of the year in 2007/08, and amassed six league titles, four Ukrainian Cups and the 2008/09 UEFA Cup.

• Fernandinho's Shakhtar team-mates included Andriy Pyatov, Serhiy Kryvtsov, Taras Stepanenko, Taison, Alan Patrick and Dentinho.

• Oleksandr Zinchenko was initially a trainee Shakhtar, but left the club in 2014 without making a senior appearance. He signed for City in July 2016 following a spell with Russian side Ufa.

• Yevhen Konoplyanka scored in Sevilla's 2-1 defeat at City of Manchester Stadium in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Konoplyanka was also on target against England at Wembley in a 1-1 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying draw. Sterling and Kyle Walker were unused substitutes.

• International team-mates:

Head coach Only this chapter

Luís Castro

Date of birth: 3 September 1961
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: Leiria (twice), Vieirense, Vitória SC, Elvas, Fafe, Águeda
Coaching career: Águeda, Mealhada, Estarreja, Sanjoanense, Penafiel, Porto (youth), Porto B (twice), Porto, Rio Ave, Chaves, Vitória SC, Shakhtar Donetsk

• A right-back, most of Luís Castro's 17-year playing career was spent in the lower leagues, although he did feature for Vitória SC and Elvas in the top flight.

• His seven years at Águeda, which started in 1990, marked Castro's longest stay at a club and was only ended by his retirement in 1997; moved into coaching with the same team the following year, leaving his post in 2000.

• Went on to have short spells with lower-league Mealhada, Estarreja and Sanjoanense before taking charge of top-flight Penafiel in 2004; remained in charge for two years, guiding them to 11th place in his first campaign – which included a 1-0 home win against Benfica – but leaving at the end of the following campaign after relegation.

• Moved into Porto's youth system, going on to spend ten years at the Dragons, including a short stint as caretaker coach to the first team at the end of the 2013/14 campaign; guided the club to third place in the league – and past Napoli in the UEFA Europa League – having stepped up following Paulo Fonseca's departure.

• After returning to Porto's B team, winning the second division title in 2015/16, Castro moved on to become head coach of Rio Ave; spent a season there, then one at both Chaves and Vitória SC; in June 2019 he replaced Fonseca again, taking over at Shakhtar following his compatriot's departure for Roma.


Josep Guardiola

Date of birth: 18 January 1971
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career:
Barcelona, Brescia (twice), Roma, Al-Ahly Club, Dorados de Sinola
Coaching career:
Barcelona B, Barcelona, Bayern München, Manchester City

• Known as 'Pep', he came up through Barcelona's youth ranks to win six Spanish Liga titles, one European Champion Clubs' Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Copa del Rey trophies from 1990 to 2001. Also had spells with Brescia, Roma, al-Ahly in Doha and Mexico's Dorados de Sinola before ending his playing career in 2006. Won 47 caps and Olympic footballing gold with Spain in 1992, but missed the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups through injury.

• Having coached Barcelona's B team, he took charge of the senior side in 2008 and won the UEFA Champions League, Spanish Liga and Copa del Rey in his first season. That was just the beginning of a glorious four-season spell which yielded 14 trophies. In his second campaign, Guardiola steered Barcelona to a second Liga title as well as the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Even more sucess followed in 2010/11 as Barcelona completed a hat-trick of Spanish titles and, for the second time under Guardiola, got the better of Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League final.

• In his final season, 2011/12, Guardiola's team won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup once more before he signed off his reign with a second Copa del Rey triumph. After a year's break, Guardiola took charge of Bayern in June 2013, replacing Jupp Heynckes.

• Collected the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup and, with a record seven games to spare, the Bundesliga title in his first season in Germany. Secured his second successive Bundesliga title the following season, and Bayern again dominated domestically in 2015/16, but all three of Guardiola's UEFA Champions League campaigns in Bavaria ended in the semi-finals.

• Opted for a new challenge at Manchester City in summer 2016 and, though the first year in charge produced Guardiola's first trophy-less campaign as a coach, he and City delivered in style in 2017/18, racking up 100 points in winning the Premier League and adding the English League Cup; the following season, City became the first English club to win the domestic treble of league – holding off a remarkable Liverpool effort – FA Cup and League Cup.
