Shakhtar Donetsk vs Inter Milan: Prediction and Betting Tips

17:45, Sep 28 2021
Shakhtar Donetsk vs Inter Milan prediction for Tuesday’s Champions League Group D matchday two matchup at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv. A defeat in their opening match left Shakhtar looking for their first point as they host Italian champions Inter Milan who also had a losing start to their 2021/22 UCL campaign. You can follow our free preview prediction and betting tips on this page.

Shakhtar Donetsk are in need of full points in Kyiv

Shakhtar are playing in the Champions League after finishing second last season’s Ukrainian League. Consequently, the Miners took part in the qualification rounds where they eliminated Genk and Monaco. In fact, this is Shakntar’s gift consecutive season in the UCL group stage.

Coach Roberto De Zerbi’s team didn’t have an encouraging start this season though. A 2-0 away defeat to Sheriff Tiraspol who are considered to be the weakest team in the group. Hence Shakhtar are in a difficult position as they host Inter. However, De Zerbi’s team held Inter to two goalless draws last season. But they might need to go for a little bit more this time around.

Shakhtar Key points

  • Shakhtar are undefeated in their last six home games
  • BTTS happened in just three of Shakhtar’s last ten matches 
  • The average goals scored in Shakhtar’s last five home matches is 2.3

 

Inter Milan will be playing for the three points

Inter’s fine start to Serie A was soured by their Champions League loss to Real Madrid on matchday one. Incredibly, Inter had 18 shots on goal against Real but still couldn’t score. That was the most goal attempt of any team without getting on the scoresheet in the first round. 

However, after that Game Inter scored 11 goals in three matches in Serie A. If the Nerazzurri maintain that scoring form in this match, surely they will return with full marks. Incidentally, Simone Inzaghi’s team never lost to Shakhtar in six meetings. Nonetheless, they have to learn from the last two goalless draws of last season.

Inter Key points

  • Inter are unbeaten in their three away games this season
  • Inzaghi’s team scored in all of their away games this season
  • 2.5 goals per match is what Inter scored in their last three away matches

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Inter Milan Prediction

The h2h record suggests this match might be a low-scoring game. Also, the bookies are favoring an under 2.5 goals with odds of 1.66 at Vbet. Markedly, four of the last five matches between these two ended in under 2.5 goals.

Certainly, the importance of the game will have its effect on this game. After losing at home in the first match, Inter are desperate for the three points. In effect, the same goes for Shakhtar as we discussed in the preview.

As a result of all this analysis, we think we will definitely not see another goalless draw. Thus we found the best market to bet for this match is in the combo section at Vbet with double chance and under 3.5 goals.
