Champions League Wednesday Preview

Manchester City look to book their places in the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday.

City are top of Group F and victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, coupled with a Lyon win over Hoffenheim – will see Pep Guardiola’s men through.

In Group H and Juventus, who have already all but sealed top spot, host Manchester United – who themselves will go someway to qualification with a win in Turin.

Ajax and Bayern Munich will seal the top two spots in Group E, if they seal respective wins over Benfica and AEK Athens.

Finally in Group G – and thinks are close with Roma and Real Madrid leading the way with six points apiece, with CSKA Moscow just two points back.
