Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid meet at L'viv Arena, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage).

Analysis of Shakhtar Donetsk

After 1 win and 3 losses, the home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 3 points won. In the last match, they have won (4‑0) at home against Malmö FF, after in the previous round they have lost (1‑0) in an away match against Malmö FF. They come to this match after a home win against Volyn by (4‑0). Shakhtar Donetsk registers 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in the last 4 home matches for the UEFA Champions League. In the last 13 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 7 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Shakhtar Donetsk comes to this match after 5 consecutive wins, so they which to use this good moment to guarantee Europa League access. Coach Mircea Lucescu should use the usual 4-2-3-1 system, with an offensive strategy to try to get the 3 points against Real Madrid. However, captain Srna is suspended and isn’t available for this match.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Pyatov, I. Ordets, V. Kobin, Y. Rakitskiy, Márcio Azevedo, Marlos, Bernard, Fred, T. Stepanenko, O. Gladkiy, Alex Teixeira.
Coach: M. Lucescu.

Analysis of Real Madrid

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 10 points won, after 3 wins and 1 draw. In the penultimate round, they have tied an away match against PSG by (0‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against PSG by (1‑0). In their last match, for the Primera División, they got a home loss against Barcelona by (0‑4). Their last away match was for the Primera División and ended in a loss by (3‑2) against Sevilla. In the last 10 away matches Real Madrid has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they haven’t conceded any goals in the last 4 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 10 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 10 of them.

Unlike the home team, Real isn’t going through a positive moment, after losses against Barcelona and Sevilla. Coach Rafa Benítez should usual the usual 4-3-3 and can count on all important players. The doubt is Casemiro, who is usually fundamental by keeping the team’s defensive balance, since he is unlikely to be part of the starting eleven.

Confirmed Lineup: Kiko Casilla, R. Varane, Daniel Carvajal, Pepe, Nacho, Isco, L. Modrić, Casemiro, M. Kovačić, Cristiano Ronaldo, G. Bale.
Coach: Luis Miguel Ramis.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that there won’t be many goals. Real faces Shakhtar in an away match, where it’s usually hard to score and win, so we expect a balanced and closed match, with few goal opportunities.
