Shakhtar Donetsk vs Real Madrid: Predictions

After a disastrous start to the 2020/21 Champions League, Real Madrid have since recovered following back-to-back wins over Inter Milan, and they can now avenge their shock 3-2 defeat at the hands of Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday one when they travel to the Ukrainian capital for a tantilising Group B encounter.

Zinedine Zidane’s men began the campaign in concerning fashion, losing to a second-string Shakhtar side at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, before drawing with current group-toppers Borussia Monchengladbach, but they have since responded with a convincing double over Inter Milan.

Shakhtar meanwhile have failed to build on that brilliant curtain raiser in the Spanish capital, picking up just the single point since. In that time Luis Castro’s side have lost to Monchengladbach, home and away by an aggregate scoreline of 10-0, while also seeing out a goalless stalemate at home to Inter.

That has placed Shakhtar in third, but the Miners can leapfrog Real with a win. Three points would draw the sides level, but Shakhtar boast a better head-to-head record, owing to their win in Madrid, which would tee up a mouthwatering final matchday in what has arguably been the most entertaining group of this season’s Champions League.

Couple in the fact that Shakhtar have conceded the third-most goals this season in the competition (12), and the last time these sides met in Ukraine it finished 4-3 to Rafa Benitez’s Real in 2015, and the ingredients are certainly there for another goal fest in the capital.
