A clean sheet for the Citizens was also a nightmare for the Mountaineers, which lost 0-3 in a home game

Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City went toe-to-toe in the Round 3 fixture of the group stage of UEFA Champions League. The game took place at Metalist Arena in Kharkiv, northeastern Ukraine.

The Mountaineers lacked two of their leaders, as Taison and Marlos had to stay away from the pitch due to injuries. As a result, the team failed to act sharply and could not even keep the ball for long enough - not to mention the failure to attack effectively. So even despite the home stadium's support, it all went south for Shakhtar already in the first half. 

David Silva and Aymeric Laporte scored first, making it 2-0 with only five minutes between the goals. Then, Bernardo Silva sealed the victory, bringing the FA Premer League champions a clean sheet - and a bitter loss for the opponent.

The defeat left Shakhtar with only two points at third place in the group, as the team only managed to play ties with Hoffenheim and Lyon.
