Shakhtar v Celta Vigo Betting Tips: Hosts can finish the job in second-leg

This Europa League match is closer after the first leg than most imagined with Shakhtar leading by just one goal. Having said that, it is a crucial away goal. Shakhtar are currently in the middle of a winter break in the Ukrainian Premier League in which they are dominating, leading all the important statistic charts. The Ukrainian champions were also arguably the most impressive team in the Europa League group stages with six wins, 21 goals scored and just five goals conceded. Paulo Fonseca’s side, are fantastic in every department and manage to score plenty of goals whilst also being…

Celta Vigo v Shakhtar Betting Tips: High-scoring encounter expected at Balaídos

Spanish side Celta Vigo look to get over the disappointment of failing to make it through to the Copa del Rey final last week, as well as losing out late in the day to Atlético on Sunday night, when they welcome Ukrainian opposition to Balaídos on Thursday night. Despite currently being on their winter-break, Shakhtar remain a strong outfit and are certainly a team to be wary of since the Europa League has been a happy hunting ground for the Ukrainians in recent years. On their day, both of these two are more than capable of posing a significant threat going forward…

Shakhtar Donetsk v Konyaspor Betting Tips

This match sees the top and bottom of Europa League Group H come together as Shakhtar Donetsk, who have already secured top spot, host Konyaspor for whom it would take a miracle to qualify for the knockout rounds. Shakhtar Donetsk have blitzed their way through the Europa League so far having won all four of their matches, scoring 13 goals (joint-top with Zenit St. Petersburg) and conceding just three. The Ukrainian side of course won this competition under legendary manager Mircea Lucescu back in 2009 and repeating this feat is most certainly the aim for 2017. Of course it is not…

KAA Gent v Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Tips

This match in Europa League Group H may be a contest between the top two, but it’s certainly a game that is of more importance to the home side. KAA Gent was the surprise package in last season’s Champions League, qualifying out of a difficult group before being knocked out by VFL Wolfsburg. This season they find themselves in Europe’s secondary competition and they were faring well with one win and one draw before a 5-0 thrashing by Thursday night’s opponents Shakhtar Donetsk in the last round of fixtures. Shakhtar are undoubtedly the dominant force in the group but Gent…

Shakhtar Donetsk v BSC Young Boys Betting Tip

This Champions League third round tie sees two sides who are big forces in their respective countries come head-to-head as Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine face BSC Young Boys of Switzerland. Shakhtar lost out on the Ukrainian title to arch rivals Dinamo Kiev last season in what was Mircea Lucescu’s final season in charge before heading to Zenit St. Petersburg. With Lucescu having established a successful formula at Shakhtar by buying cheap Brazilians and selling them on at large profits, it will be interesting to see how the club move forward now that the Romanian has left. When Lucescu won the…

Sevilla – Shakhtar Donetsk. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction

Sevilla-Shakhtar almost guarantees goals. This was the case in the first leg, and has generally been the pattern for both so far in their Europa League journey this season. If we take a look at the 3 home games of Sevilla in the knock-out stages, and the 3 away ones for Shakhtar, we can see that over 2.5 goals has remained a constant almost throughout, with three of more goals going in, in 5 of the 6 games aggregated. Because of this fact the odds available on over 2.5 are pretty low. A slightly different way to play this one…

Sevilla – Shakhtar Donetsk. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

I am going with Emery’s team to win here. Everyone knows just how good they are at home. Yes, they had recent drawbacks, when playing at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, losing to Real Sociedad in La Liga and Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League. But the team from Donbass has just had a very difficult, physically taxing match against Dinamo Kiev. With the match ending up in a brawl, many emotions were left there and Shakhtar may be fatigued. At the same time, Emery  was able to rest several of his key players over the weekend, including his leaders, and therefore they…

Shakhtar Donetsk – Sevilla. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

We could be in for a bit of a negative game here tonight. I don’t think that Shakhtar will want to invite Sevilla into an open game, even in front of their own fans in Lviv. Mirca Lucescu understands that his team should adopt a cautious style against a good attacking side and their main task will be to avoid conceding at home. This probably won’t bother Sevilla too much, who will be confident, as they always are, when playing at home in the return leg next week. This is why I’m expecting to see a tight game. Unai Emeri…

Shakthar Donetsk – Sevilla. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

It’s all about the Europa League at this stage for Sevilla. They want to make it an unprecedented three in a row, not least because domestically they’re in a funk and the top four is out of reach. Donetsk as ever are playing at the opposite end of the country because of the turmoil in Ukraine. To me this points to a cautious game from both ends. You can go for 0-0 in the first half at 3.00 with William Hill. Single: Lost Shakthar Donetsk - Sevilla 28.04.2016 20:05 BST Europa League Bet: 1st half under 0.5 goals @ Will…

Shakhtar – Braga. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction (VIDEO)

Having won 2:1 away in Braga, Shakhtar Donetsk shine and they promise to shine till the end. There shouldn’t be any worries for Mirca Lucescu, and his side are definitely expected to qualify for the semi-finals. Braga are a pretty tough side and it’s not going to be easy for the Ukrainians. Normally we would go for a tight game, but considering the lead Shakhtar hold, how good they are and how exciting they are game by game, we go for Shakhtar to win by a two goal advantage at 2.87. Single: Won Shakhtar - Braga 14.04.2016 20:05 BST Europa…

Braga – Shakhtar Donetsk. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Perhaps, this is the most unpredictable encounter in the Europa League at this stage. Braga always play hard and aggressively at home. Shakhtar are more experienced fighter in the European Cups. In  addition, Braga have just lost 1:5 to Benfica in the Portuguese League. But I think the first leg won’t see a lot of goals. One single error can solve the game tonight. You can pick just unders here, but I suggest enhancing the odds a little bit. I don’t believe that both teams will score tonight. So, you should bet “both teams to score – no & total…

Anderlecht – Shakhtar Donetsk. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

I would simply suggest picking the overs here. I watched the first leg game and I can say that Anderlecht’s defence is a disaster. I do not know how such a team can be among the leaders of the Belgian league. On the other hand, in Belgium everyone’s playing recklessly. The club from Brussels were in some way fortunate that Shakhtar scored only three goals. In the first half only the club from Donetsk could have scored more than twice. Anderlecht will go forward tonight, while Shakhtar will be catching them on the counterattacks. the counter that the “miners” great…

Shakhtar Donetsk – Schalke 04. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Schalke 04 were awful in their last game against Mainz 05. Mircea Lucescu has always been able to prepare his team to play after the winter break. Last year Shakhtar Donetsk got a home draw against Bayern Munich in their first game of the year. So they will be ready to give a fight. Lucescu is a highly experienced manager and I think that Shakhtar will make Europa League their priority tournament. So we can back Shakhtar Donetsk to win. Schalke 04 are weak in away games with their problems with defence. Shakhtar are missing Alex Teixeira but all other players are…

Shakhtar – Real Madrid. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

It does not matter if Real Madrid sack Rafa Benitez or not. This is not a point at all. If Real Madrid lose to Shakhtar after two defeats in La Liga and after the humiliation in El Classico, that will be the final nail in the coffin. With all the discontent of the leaders of Madrid with Benitez, they will band together and win against Shakhtar. But I think that the Ukrainian side can score. They scored a lot against Malmo in their last Champions League game. And Real Madrid concede a lot and now they are playing away. Single: Won…
