Sheriff Tiraspol Preview – Can Sheriff start on a high note?

It’s been an amazing journey already for Wednesday’s hosts, Sheriff Tiraspol, in the Champions League as they’ve progressed all the way from the 1st qualifying round through to the group stages of this elite European club competition and they play host to Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 1 looking to continue their run.

An unbeaten run of eight Champions League ties have enabled Moldovan outfit, Sheriff, to reach the group stage after seeing off Teuta Durres, Alashkert, Red Star Belgrade and Dinamo Zagreb but they find themselves in a very tough Group D along with Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Sheriff have won their last five Champions League ties at home on the trot but they face a tough opener against Shakhtar whom they lost 2-0 to back in 2003.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar use experience?

Shakhtar Donetsk joined the competition at the 3rd qualifying round stage where they registered a 4-2 win on aggregate against Belgian side, Genk, before recording a narrow 3-2 win over two legs against French Ligue 1 outfit, Monaco, to take their place in the group stage.

Shakhtar Donetsk will be keen to get their Champions League group campaign off to a winning start as they’ll also be facing the likes of the two favourites, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, in home and away ties before playing host to Sheriff on the final matchday.

Shakhtar have lost just three of their last 15 Champions League ties overall, while losing just one of their last nine on the road as well.
