No margin for errors for Inter

Inter Milan must win this match at all costs if they want to secure a place in the knockout stages of the UCL. To point out, if Sheriff Tiraspol pull another surprise over Real Madrid and raise their points to nine and Inter lose points here they will be third. And with Inter playing in Madrid in their last game, the Nerazzurri will be in a difficult situation.

Therefore, Simone Inzaghi must make sure his team don’t underestimate Shakhtar. Notably, Inter drew with the Ukrainians in the first game and even were the team with lesser ball possession. Hence, Inzaghi must be very careful not to allow the visitors any chance of causing surprises. In any case, Inter are undefeated in their last three matches in the UCL and scored six goals in their last two matches.

Shakhtar’s last chance to fight for third place 

Shakhtar’s only point in the UCL group stage came from the draw against Inter 0-0. In fact, that was the third consecutive goalless draw between Shakhtar and Inter since last season. Markedly, both teams were in the same group again. Somehow Shakhtar seem to be able to hold the Italian champions to a stalemate, their other result are not encouraging, however.

To illustrate, coach Roberto Se Zerbi’s team conceded nine goals in their three other games. However, the Miners had a fine display in their last match in Madrid. De Zerbi’s men had the same amount of goal attempts as Real with 13. Moreover, in the first match with Inter, Shakhtar had more dangerous attacks than the Italians. 

Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction

After the disappointment of last season when Inter finished fourth in the UCL group stage, the Nerazzurri can settle their qualification in this match. Indeed, a win here will raise Inter’s tally to ten points. And depending on the result of Sheriff vs Real Madrid, Inter’s fate will be decided.

As we mentioned earlier, Inter are facing big problems in scoring against Shakhtar. Thus we might see a similar result, if not a goalless draw then a low-scoring game.

As for Shakhtar, they have a very weak chance of finishing third. That is if they win their both remaining matches and Sheriff lose two. 

Obviously, Inter are the clear favorites with the bookies who are paying 1.36 for a home win. However, an interesting bet can be under 2.5 or 3.5 goals which is not the favorite total goals outcome, and pay 2.52 and 1.64 respectively.
