City sweeps aside Shakhtar 3-0 in Champions League

KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) Manchester City took a step closer to qualifying from its Champions League group Tuesday with a dominant 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.

Last season the Ukrainian team ended a 29-game unbeaten run for City, but it never came close to another win Tuesday. David Silva and Aymeric Laporte's goals had Pep Guardiola's team 2-0 up by halftime, before Bernardo Silva snuffed out Shakhtar's hopes of a comeback in the 71st.

City has won six of the seven games it's played since losing 2-1 to Lyon in its last Champions League outing. Thanks to Lyon's 3-2 win over Hoffenheim in Tuesday's other game, City stays second in Group F at the halfway mark, one point behind Lyon and four ahead of third-place Shakhtar.
