[UCL Highlights] Manchester City Lost Their Undefeated Status Heading Into The Derby


◼️ Pep Guardiola's side lost after 22 games this season: with variants in the team, they lost 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk and already think about the weekend match against United.


Manchester City stumbled for the first time this season after losing 2-1 on their visit to Ukraine, against Shakhtar Donetsk. Those led by Pep Guardiola brought full victories after five appearances in the group F of the Champions League, which added to the successes between Premier and the English League Cup allowed him to hold a record of 22 games unbeaten. However, the lack of obligation in this last match plus the replacement for having his head in the derby against United of the weekend, led him to leave his firm footing.

From the beginning it was noticed an ambitious local team, with strength and enthusiasm in search of securing their classification, before the stalking of Napoli (3rd). The dominion was total and Bernard was in charge - after 25 minutes - translate that control to the marker with a spectacular shot from the left corner of the big area, position from which he took a right hand to place and hung the ball in the upper left corner. Ederson flew but it was impossible to reach him.

Six minutes later, Ismaily scored and took advantage of the poor exit of the visiting goalkeeper, who instead of going out with energy in search of the ball, scored in an incredible way and the left side pushed the empty goal.

Shakhtar was superior, at no time suffered but at the end, Bohdan Butko committed a penalty on Gabriel Jesus enabled the Argentine Sergio Agüero discount and make the fall decorous. The City advanced with 15 points, followed by the Ukrainian team three behind, while Napoli (6) took leave with a 2-1 defeat at Feyenoord's home and will compete in the Europa League.
