21.10.2020 Real Madrid – Shakhtar Donetsk – Review

Let’s head to the Spanish capital where Real Madrid will host Shakhtar Donetsk in a game
from Group B of the Champions League. Just as always we are going to provide you with
our football best betting tips for this game. Are you ready?
Just few days after their shocking defeat against Cadiz in La Liga, Real Madrid must prove
they do not have any problems at the moment. Usually the motivation is high after a bad
performance, so that’s what we expect from Los Blancos – huge hunger for the three
points and a successful start in the Champions League.
What happened with Real Madrid against Cadiz? That’s a good question. Zinedine
Zidane’s team hosted the La Liga newcomers at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, but
suffered a surprising 0-1 defeat. Some said it was the so called “FIFA virus” while other
thought it was just a simple underestimation by the Spanish champions. Maybe both of
them are true.
Zidane should make some changes against Shakhtar. Most likely players like Lucas
Vasquez and Isco will return to the bench while Fede Valverde and Rodrygo could start.
The truth is Zinedine Zidane has a lot of options to choose from. He’s lucky to have a
squad with a solid depth on his hands.
For Shakhtar Donetsk it’s another participance in the Champions League – they are
regulars in this competition from years. In Ukraine Shakhtar continue to dominate, but they
still try to make some kind of a big breakthrough in the Champions League. It’s a different
level, though.
These are our football best betting tips for the Champions League fixture between Real
Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday. Will the hosts remind us how good they are
after the surprising defeat against Cadiz? Or maybe Shakhtar will try to do the same and
shock Los Blancos at their own ground?
