FC Shakhtar Donetsk: Five wins in a row ( Recent Form: W W W W W )

Shakhtar Donetsk wants to survive the group stage of the Champions League. The "Hirnyky" has celebrated after the expected defeat against Manchester City an important away win against Atalanta Bergamo. Despite the temporary gap, the Ukrainians fought back against Atalanta and scored in the last minute of stoppage time to win 2-1. With three points on the account Donetsk is now tied with Zagreb on the way. At the weekend, the team of Luis Castro, the warm-up for the upcoming task in the Champions League. In the domestic Premier League, the action is currently dominated by Shakthar Donetsk anyway. The previous year's champion is back on course with 33 points from the first eleven league games and already has a lead of ten points. With 36 goals Donetsk is the strongest offensive, with only six goals against the strongest defense of the league. The home strength in the premier class can be quite impressive. The "Hirnyky" has lost in the last 16 home games in the Champions League only against Manchester City (two times), PSG and Real Madrid. In the 2017/18 season, the Ukrainian representatives had won all home games in the Champions League for the first time, but retired in the second round against AS Roma. Speaking of retirement: The best CL result was in 2010/11, where the "Hirnyky" was eliminated only in the quarter-finals of FC Barcelona. From the then squad only Keeper Andrii Piatov is present in the squad of Shakhtar Donetsk. The team structure is formed around the Brazilian ensemble by the Ukrainians. Junior Moraes is the most dangerous man in the squad this season. With eleven goals and four assists Moraes leads the internal scorer list. At the weekend, the Brazilian laced a double and showed up again in Torlaune. In this competitive season, Shakhtar Donetsk has lost only against Dynamo Kiev (Super Cup) and Manchester City (CL). The team of head coach Luis Castro is thus confident in the home game against Dinamo Zagreb.


Dinamo Zagreb: Good form on the road ( Recent Form: W L W D W )

In the run-up to Dinamo Zagreb was still traded as a major underdog in Group C of the Champions League. After an impressive group opener against Atalanta Bergamo and a promising performance in the away game against Manchester City, the "Modri" can certainly count chances to reach the first knockout round of the premier class in the club's history. In the direct duel against home strong Ukrainians Zagreb is required. The dress rehearsal in the domestic league succeeded with an offensive spectacle against Gorica. With 4: 2 the Croatian record champion won the away game and thus conquered the championship lead in the 1st HNL back. The man of the match was undoubtedly Mislav Orsic. For the second time in this competitive season Orsic scored a hat-trick and was spared during the game by coach Nenad Bjelica. Gorica was not overwhelmed by the fast attacking play of the Croatian record champions. Already at the start of the group, the offensive of the "Modri" dismantled the Italian representative from Bergamo and scored one goal after the other. That Zagreb not only builds on the offensive game, but also convince from a defensive point of view, was proved in the game against City. The Citizens did not arrive with their concentrated offensive power against the defense bulwark of Zagreb. Only in the 66th minute of the game was the first city hit. Although the "Modri" with 27% ball possession and two shots did not have much of the game, but fought consistently and would have been almost rewarded. How Nenad Bjelica will tactically align his team in the match against Donetsk is not yet clear. After some players were spared on the weekend, Bjelica will again send his best squad on the pitch. Attacking Jewel Dani Olmo was allowed to take a break in the most recent competitive match but will return to the starting eleven against Donetsk. In the group stage of the Champions League Dinamo Zagreb has lost the last ten away games in series. In nine of the last ten CL games in foreign countries, there was no goal for Zagreb.



After all, The current goalscoring performance of both teams is still very stable, when in the last match in the domestic league both scored a total of 10 goals. Along with that, the home team got 2 victories in both times the two teams clashed and scored 5 goals in those 2 matches.
