Shakhtar Donetsk vs Genk: Prediction and Betting Tips
Shakhtar Donetsk need to find their best home form
The Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk have been playing regularly in the group stages of the Champions League. The Miners’ best result was in season 2010-11 when they won their Arsenal, Braga, and Partizan group. Moving on, Shakhtar reached the quarter-final that season and were eliminated by Barcelona.
Coming into this match, the Ukrainian champions lost their last match in their domestic league. That was their first defeat in their last six matches. In the first leg against Genk, Shakhtar were the better team and had more chances to score. Coach De Zerbi has a very good team and will find their home form back in this match.
Shakhtar key points
- Shakhtar have won seven of their last ten matches
- The number of times Shakhtar scored in the last ten matches is eight
- BTTS happened in Shakhtar’s just three of their last ten matches
Genk not having a good start to the season
The last time Belgian outfit Genk were in the Champions League group stage was in 2019-20. That was their fifth appearance and have never advanced to the knockout stages. Genk have played 22 matches in the Uefa Champions League. They have a record of five wins, nine losses, and eight draws.
Genk are on a three-match losing streak and haven’t won in four. Coach Van den Brom’s team didn’t have a good start to their season in the Belgian Jupiler League. One point from two games was all they could manage in the first two games. In addition, there is a big defensive problem for Van Den Brom to solve having conceded nine goals in three matches.
Genk Key Points
- Genk have won five of their last ten matches
- In their last ten matches, Genk were able to score
- BTTS happened in 80% of Genk’s last ten matches
Shakhtar Donetsk vs Genk Prediction
Considering the recent form of both teams, it is not a surprise to find odds of 1.11 for a Shakhtar qualification at Vbet. Hence, we think a profitable market is the match result one with odds of 1.78 for a home win.
We can’t see Genk troubling much the Ukrainian side who lost just once at home in six matches and that was the most recent one. Consequently, we might see goals at both ends as their defenses have been poor lately.
Vbet has a very interesting bet in the combo’s section. A home win and both teams to score has odds of 3.06. It might be risky but with that kind of odds and a high probability of 75% chance that BTTS can happen, we will back it.
