Shakhtar Donetsk

      Tip Reasoning

      Shakhtar Donetsk were hammered 4-0 in their opening Champions League Group A against Real Madrid. They’ve got another difficult game on Wednesday night when they play host to PSG, who defeated Malmo in their opening match-up.

      Shakhtar Donetsk are already involved in a tough scrap at the top of the Ukrainian Super League with Dynamo Kiev. They might just be out of their depth in this group as was suggested by their opening day beating. They will feel a little more confident playing at home, but they’ll still need to play significantly better with the ball and will need to get men behind the ball defensively.

      PSG are in good form, they are at the top of French Ligue 1 and they are talking like a club that is placing a deep Champions League run as a higher priority agenda. They’ll probably view the two matches against Real Madrid as the best test of that, but taking care of business against Donetsk and Malmo is important in terms of reaching the knockout stage and trips like this are a good test.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Ukrainian advantage

      Ukrainian teams have a good home record in European competition and we think they’ll find a way to scrap and keep this game competitive in this clash against PSG.

      2. PSG not absolutely clinical and occasionally fragile

      PSG are not quite as developed a side as Real Madrid. They’ve enjoyed periods of dominance in Ligue 1 this season, but there’s also been moments where they’ve lacked the necessary clinical game and where they’ve looked a little fragile at the back.

      3. Donetsk frustrate PSG

      Our correct score prediction reveals our expectation that PSG will find a way to win this game, but we think they’ll suffer a degree of frustration against Shakhtar Donetsk and it will result in a goal being conceded.
