SHAKHTAR DONETSK VS REAL MADRID PREDICTION

Victory here for Real Madrid against Shakhtar Donetsk will guarantee ‘Los Blancos’ a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage with the hosts currently three points behind the Spaniards in Group B. Zinedine Zidane’s men started to look more like a Madrid side that their fans would expect to see on Matchday 4, after beating Internazionale 0-2 at the San Siro. With that in mind, Real Madrid will come into this match confident and looking for revenge after being beaten 2-3 by Shakhtar on Matchday 1. The Ukrainians have not scored in the group stage since that encounter and the visitors will be confident of not just securing victory here, but also a second successive Group B clean sheet as they ensure their safe passage to the knockout stage.
