Lyon vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Shakhtar Donetsk may have picked up a draw from the opening group match against Hoffenheim, but Paulo Fonseca will be disappointed about the dropped points in a home game. Lyon picked up an unexpected win over Manchester City in the first group match and Bruno Genesio will be keen to utilise this victory in the best possible manner. Failure to get a positive result against Shakhtar Donetsk will only render the win over City as a consolation – even if it is still early days in the group stages. Shakhtar Donetsk have displayed tremendous form to worry Lyon, who have been unbeaten in five. The Ukrainian team do not travel well in the Champions League and I would go with a win for Lyon.

The two teams have been through a strong return of goals in recent matches. Lyon have 12 goals in the last five across all competitions while Shakhtar Donetsk have 15 in the same period. I would back over 2.5 goals from this match.
