Real Madrid vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Real Madrid have only managed to keep 5 clean sheets in all competitions this season. But at the same time they scores a lot of goals (2.36 per game in the Spanish league). The top scorer is Karim Benzema, who has started 13 games for the club this season and scored 11 times. Otherwise, Real obviously have a number of offensive players, even among the defenders. Now they beat Elche away at the weekend and remain in second place in La Liga thanks to a better score. In the millionaire competition they only lost to Tiraspol, otherwise they have 2 wins and last time they beat Donetsk at their stadium (5:0).

As for the visitors from Ukraine, they are in second place in the Ukraine league. In the group stage they are worse off - one point for a home draw with Inter and 0 goals scored. Logically, they are in last place. If they want to at least qualify for the spring phase of the Europa League, they need to start picking up points and scoring goals. Which they can do, after all, they average 2.69 goals per game in league.

Their last meeting at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium was last year and Shakhtar won 3-2.

The situation in Group D is extremely balanced after three matches. Perhaps only Shakhtar Donetsk is already out of the advance to the CL playoff. From three matches Shakhtar has 0:7 score and only one point for draw with Inter. Real Madrid lost at home to Sheriff Tiraspol 1:2, but managed to beat Inter (1:0) and Shakhtar (5:0). Real Madrid have the highest goals every year in Champions League and if they don't make it through this game it would be a big complication for Ancelotti's squad. The Italian strategist knows very well the recipe for the Ukrainian champion, two weeks ago Real won sovereignly 5-0 in Ukraine. We probably won't see such a high score difference in the second meeting, but the three points will be easily won by Real again.

Shakhtar 0:5 Real
Ball possession - 43% : 57%
Ball possession - 7:23
Shots on goal - 4:10
Corner kicks - 4:6

My bet:
Asian Handicap: Real Madrid -1.5 @ 1.62 (bet365)

A poor performance by Real, but 3 points are 3 points.

Vinicius keeps performing, but still tried too fancy skills at points. Nonetheless, my MOTM.

Hazard is either starting against Rayo or never playing again.

Some players are definitely playing too much and it will only get more worrying further into the season, Modrić playing all 90 is not sustainable.
