Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Shakhtar vs RB Leipzig


Shakhtar is holding the current Champions League draw very well, the team in a difficult group before the last round has already guaranteed itself a European Cup spring. But in order to qualify for the playoffs of the Champions League, the Pitmen definitely need to win in the final match of the group stage.

This season, the young team of Igor Jovicevich has already surprised the public several times and will now try to do it again. In the first round match, Shakhtar convincingly defeated Leipzig, which means that the Pitmen will definitely not be afraid of their opponent and will give all their strength for a victorious result.

RB Leipzig

Leipzig in the last round of the Champions League group stage unexpectedly defeated Real Madrid at home and this success allowed the team to gain a foothold in second place in the quartet. To continue playing in the tournament, it is enough for the Bulls not to lose in the sixth round duel.

The Bulls will be extremely motivated in the match against Shakhtar and will obviously want to take revenge for the insulting defeat in the first match. It is unlikely that Leipzig will play for a draw and prefer to sit on the defensive. Still, this German team is distinguished by an active game in attack and is used to creating a large number of chances at the gates of others.
