Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar make home advantage count?

Shakhtar Donetsk hold a vital 1-0 lead following last week’s win in France and now the hosts return to their NSK Olimpijs’kyj for this Wednesday’s 2nd leg clash with the hosts seeking to finish the job and qualify for the group stage of the competition.

Shakhtar have won their last four matches on the trot in all competitions which includes a 2-1 home win over Genk and a 2-0 home win over Metalist in the Ukrainian top flight, while also losing just one of their last seven games at home.

This could be a tight affair against Monaco though, and Shakhtar know that a clean sheet here would seal their place in the group stage.

Our betting suggestion:

Monaco Preview – Can Monaco break losing slump?

Monaco will make their way over to Ukraine for this 2nd leg clash of their play-off tie against Shakhtar Donetsk looking to break a three-match losing streak which included a dismal 1-0 loss at home to Shakhtar in last week’s 1st leg in France.

Defeats either side of this Champions League tie against Lorient and Lens in the French top flight haven’t helped the visitors either in recent times although Monaco have been pretty steady away from home in all competitions of late.

The French side have lost just two of their last 14 matches on the road in all competitions with eight of these 14 games also resulting in under 2.5 goals.
