Football Ticket: Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk United UEFA Champions League preview, squads, lineups, predictions, live streaming info and TV channels
Los Blancos have been trying to replicate their ungodly form ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left them, and so far they have turned up short.
The Champions League was kind of their forte until the Portuguese striker bid goodbye, and Zinedine Zidane needs to get the Spanish club where it belongs – before talks solidify that his success was due to CR7.
They have been included in a tough group along with Inter and Monchengladbach, and frankly, Hirnyky are the only squad against which they could be termed as outright favorites.
If Zidane does not play his cards right, an early upset is a possibility, and that is the last thing he as well as the club wants.
To that regards – it’s important that they begin their European campaign with a win, and that too a confidence-boosting one.
Considering that Luis Castro’s men are from the Ukrainian top flight – a league that is far inferior to that of La Liga (one of the top-two competitions in Europe), it’s expected that Los Blancos will have a big upper hand this match-day.
Moreover, they are also the most successful club in this competition with 13 trophies, and on top of all that, they have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes.
By all means, expect a Real Madrid win, and that too in style.
Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Head-to-head
- The Spanish champions have won every single match-up so far.
- They have scored four or more goals in 100% of encounters.
- At this venue, they are yet to concede a goal.
- The combined scorecard for the previous two clashes is 8-3, in favor of them.

Zidane’s men are one of the best teams in the world, and they are also the most successful club in the history of the UCL.
On the other hand, their counterparts are from the lowly Ukrainian top flight, and they even have found it hard to top their domestic league this season. As of now, they are placed just third in the table – with them staying winless in three of their total six fixtures so far.
Furthermore, Los Blancos also have a perfect winning record against this rival, and they impressively have scored four or more goals in every single meeting so far.
In addition, they are also at home, and are determined to have a solid start to their campaign – as they are included in probably the toughest group.
Confidently count on Real Madrid to secure a superb win this Wednesday.
