Feyenoord vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Shakhtar Donetsk will look for their second victory of their Champions League group F campaign when they travel to the Stadion Feijenoord to take on Feyenoord on Tuesday night. Feyenoord lost 3-1 on the road at SSC Napoli last time out in the Champions League, with their consolation goal being scored by Sofyan Amrabat in the stoppage time. Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk succumbed to a 2-0 defeat on the road at Manchester City, with Paulo Fonseca’s men conceding both goals in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Feyenoord hold a strong record against Ukrainian opponents, but Shakhtar’s form over the past three months has seen them lose just once in 13 competitive fixtures. In addition, Shakhtar have been scoring goals for fun over the past month, while Feyenoord have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net in this term. I think that Shakhtar have more than enough to secure at least a draw here, and I’m also fancying goals.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord need to regroup after their back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and SSC Napoli in the opening two rounds of this Champions League group F campaign. The Rotterdammers were unable to stop both Manchester City and SSC Napoli, having conceded seven goals in this term. However, it must be said that both City and Napoli are two of the in-form teams in Europe at the moment. This leaves them at the bottom of the group F table, but the good news is that Feyenoord hold a good home record against Ukrainian opponents, losing just once in four meetings. The bad news is that Feyenoord are winless in six Champions League home fixtures, scoring just four goals in the process. Feyenoord’s recent form across all competitions have been terrible as they have only won two of their last seven competitive fixtures. In addition, the Dutch have only won once in their last four home games across all competitions and failed to score in three of these. Feyenoord managed to reach the group stage of the competition this year after lifting the first Eredivisie title in 18 years last term. Steven Berghuis has been the standout player for Feyenoord in this early part of the season, helping the team with six goals and one assist in his seven appearances in the Eredivisie.

Feyenoord Team News

Renato Tapia is a doubt, but Jan-Arie van der Heijden is out through a calf injury. The good news is that Kenneth Vermeer is back in training following his injury.

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview

Shakhtar Donetsk, on the other hand, managed an impressive 2-1 home win over SSC Napoli in the opening round, but they suffered a 2-0 defeat at Manchester City on Matchday 2. This leaves Shakhtar in second in the group F table tied on three points and three points behind the current leaders Manchester City. This is Shakhtar’s 7th appearance in the group stage of the competitions and they managed to reach the round of 16 on three occasions. The Ukrainians endured a disappointing Champions League campaign last season as they were knocked out from the third qualifying round and only managed to reach the Europa League round of 32. The bad news is that Shakhtar Donetsk have only won once in their last eight Champions League away games and are currently on a five-game losing run. In addition, Shakhtar have failed to score in seven of their last eight away games in the competition. Shakhtar can count on their recent form as they are currently on a three-game winning streak across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Domestically, Shakhtar sit comfortably at the top of the Premier League table with 31 points under their belts after twelve rounds, seven points clear of the second-placed Dynamo Kiev. Facundo Ferreyra and Marlos have been Shakhtar’s most prolific players in front of goal throughout their Premier League campaign, as the pair bagged 14 goals between them.

Maksym Malyshev and Sergey Krivtsov are both missing through injury ahead of this clash.
