Shakhtar Donetsk vs Lyon Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Despite remaining unbeaten in the group stages, Lyon’s hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League is in doubt with the team only two points above Shakhtar Donetsk, who have home advantage coming into this match. Lyon had to put up a major fight in order to grab a point against Shakhtar Donetsk even on their own soil. Hence, a match at Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist probably gives a great reason for Lyon to have every reason to doubt the ability to hold on to the second spot. Manchester City and Real Madrid are the two teams to achieve success on this ground in the last nine matches. I would go with a draw.

Both teams have a rich vein of attacking form that has seen them score more than two goals per game on average in the group stages. Shakhtar Donetsk, though, especially been poor defensively with an average of three goals conceded. I would go with over 2.5 goals in the match.
