      Tip Reasoning

      Malmo’s 3-0 win over Kalmar on Saturday came at just the right time, ending their three match winless streak just in time for this crucial Champions League meet up with Shakhtar Donetsk.

      They have lost both of their opening games in the Champions League 2-0, although to be fair to them they have been matches against Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid.

      These are the two sure fire favourites to reach the knockout stages of this competition, with both of them having won their opening two games. But while they are battling it out for the top spot in Group A, Malmo and Shakhtar will be fighting for a 3rd place finish and an entrance into the Europa League knockout stages.

      Malmo haven’t had the greatest of seasons in the Swedish Allsvenskan either, with them sitting in a disappointing 4th position after 28 league games.

      Shakhtar Donetsk are coming into this match on the back of a very impressive result in the Ukrainian Premier League at the weekend.

      They visited league leaders Dynamo Kiev on Friday and came away with a 3-0 victory to send them top of the league on goal difference.

      This was their 5th win in their last six matches in all competitions, with only a 3-0 loss to Paris Saint Germain marring their record.

      Shakhtar have the greater quality of player in their squad, and they come into this match on the back of a confidence buoying result against their Premier League rivals.

      I think they will get a crucial three points on Wednesday, and the odds on offer of 17/20 look like they offer a good amount of value. I’m also backing a 2-0 Shakhtar Donetsk win at 15/2.
