Tip Reasoning

  • Real Madrid claimed a 5-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in last month’s reverse meeting.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Real Madrid’s last six matches.
  • Four of the previous five meetings between these two sides have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Real to win entertaining contest

Real Madrid bounced back from their shock defeat to Sheriff Tiraspol on Matchday Two of the Champions League by thrashing Shakhtar 5-0 when the two teams met in the Ukraine last month.

That victory was an overdue one for Real in the fixture, as they had lost their two previous clashes with Shakhtar, with both defeats coming in last season’s Champions League group stage.

While the outcome of the recent meetings between the two sides may have been hard to predict, one thing that hasn’t is the tendency for goals, as four of the last five clashes have seen over 2.5 goals scored.

Goals on the cards in Madrid

There have also been plenty of goals in recent matches involving Real, as over 2.5 have been netted in four of their last five fixtures across all competitions.

Shakhtar have also provided plenty of entertainment of late, as they have scored nine goals in their three matches since being humbled by Real just two weeks ago.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side also scored three goals on their last visit to the Bernabeu in October 2020 and all the signs are pointing towards another entertaining contest this midweek.

Given their emphatic victory in the reverse fixture, we are predicting a Real win on Wednesday, while our overall prediction is for over 2.5 goals in the match to reflect both sides’ attacking quality.
