THE PREDICTION

It will be interesting to see how Shakhtar approach this game and whether they learned the lessons from their first match against Hoffenheim and also Lyon's tactics in their win over Man City. With over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches in this competition, this game could easily follow suit.
