Shakhtar Donetsk vs Real Madrid Preview & Tips

Real Madrid will have revenge on their minds when they travel to Kiev to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Shakhtar stunned the Spanish giants twice in last season’s Champions League and need all three points if they are to realistically make a challenge for the Round of 16.

The Ukrainian side are bottom of the group and haven’t scored a Champions League goal in their last three fixtures.

With just four wins from their last 21 Champions League games, signs aren’t great for Shakhtar despite their shock double over Real Madrid last season. A 6-1 win over Zorya in the league over the weekend will boost their confidence, but suffice to say this is a big step up in class.

Madrid actually haven’t played since the start of October after their La Liga match with Bilbao was postponed over the weekend.

With a trip to Barcelona coming up this weekend, Real Madrid have some massive fixtures coming up, but they can’t afford to take this clash lightly after suffering one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history when they lost 2-0 to at home to Sheriff Tiraspol.

VERDICT:

Real Madrid have lost their last two matches and suffered defeat at the hands of Shakhtar twice last season, but we’re backing them to bounce back here.

Shakhtar have really struggled in the Champions League over the last few seasons – despite their double over Real – and haven’t been able to score in their last three games in the competition.

Three of the last four meetings between the teams have seen four or more goals, so we’ll be taking Real & over 2.5 goals as our best bet (Best Real Madrid win & over 2.5 goals odds $2.20 with bet365.)
