Shakhtar Donetsk vs Real Madrid Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions
Despite claiming a victory in the previous meeting between these two sides, Shakhtar are clear outsiders at 15/2 (8.50) by bet365.
The La Liga side have a number of injury concerns with Dani Carvajal, Fede Valverde, Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema all missing Saturday night's defeat to Alaves, whilst Eden Hazard had to leave the game after 30 minutes with a knock..
The hosts look set to have more players available than when they visited the Spanish capital in September, although Davit Khocholava, Yevhen Konoplyanka, Viktor Korniienko, and Dentinho are all set to be sidelined.
Following a much-needed 2-0 win in Milan against Inter last week, Madrid suffered a shock 2-1 home loss to Alaves at Saturday evening to continue their inconsistent run which has seen them win only four of their last 10 games.
The defensive solidity that was the backbone of last season's domestic title success has evaporated, with the clean sheet in Italy their only shutout in those 10 games, although going forward they are strong with 19 goals during that time.
Shakhtar, meanwhile, have not scored in the Champions League since their victory in Spain but the ease with which they created chances on matchday one will give them confidence that they can cause Madrid problems once again.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at just 4/6 (1.66) which gives an indication of what is expected from this game.
For higher odds, though, backing both teams to score in the first half at 5/2 (3.50) looks like a moreinteresting option.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
