      Analysis: Shakhtar Donetsk vs Schalke 04 (18 February 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: February 16 2016, 02:06 »

      Shakhtar Donetsk and Schalke 04 meet at Arena L'viv, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals). There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 24‑02‑2005 and ended with the final score: Schalke 04 (0‑1) Shakhtar Donetsk.

      Analysis of Shakhtar D

      The home team plays its first match in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of using the home advantage to get a positive result. They come to this match after a home draw against Randers by (0‑0). Shakhtar Donetsk has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 24 of the last 28 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals.

      Shaktar Donetsk hasn't had an official match since December 12th, when they had an away loss against PSG and was eliminated from Uefa Champions League. Since then, they have had 5 friendly matches, where they achieved 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. In  chronological order, it was a draw against Fluminense, a lost to Corinthians, a win against Dinamo Zagreb, a win against Lokomotivi Tbilisi and a draw against Randers. In this last match, Shaktar was way superior having 58% of ball possession and 7 shots on goal, but they lacked quality in the finishing touches.Coach Mircea Lucescu lost an important talent in the team in the last transfer window, since Alex Teixeira was sold to Jiangsu Suning in China.

      Analysis of Schalke 04

      The away team comes to this stage of the UEFA Europa League (16th Finals) after having finished the group stage in the 1st position of Group K, with 14 points won. In their last match, for the Bundesliga, they got an away loss against Mainz 05 by (2‑1). In the last 10 away matches Schalke 04 has won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches for this competition.

      Schalke is having a good German Championship and is one of the contenders for one of the spots for next year's Champions League. In the last 5 games in the national championship, they won 3 and lost only 2 matches. In the previous match, against Mainz, Schalke had a good performance in a very even match, where they had 54% ball possession and had the same number of shots as the opponent. What they lacked was a better outing by the defense so they could get away with a better result. For the match this Thursday, coach Andre Breitenreiter is going to have a lot of difficulties picking the starting eleven. Matija Natasic, Benedikt Howedes, Marco Hoger, Fabian Giefer, Atsuto Uchida and Thilo Kehrer are all out due to injury and won't be able to suit up for the team.

      Betting suggestion:

      This should be a very dynamic match between both teams. Shaktar is looking for a good result at home and Schalke will be looking for an away goal, to help them in the second game at home. Shaktar scored goals in 12 of its last 14 matches at home while Schalke scored in 12 of its last 13 games away from home. Keeping in mind how talented both of these squads are at getting the ball to the net, we believe that both teams will score at least one goal this Thursday.
