Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dinamo Zagreb Prediction
The hosts are on an impressive four-match winning streak at the moment. Their last clash in the domestic league saw them slot two unanswered goals past Dnipro-1 while at home they thrashed four past Vorskla.
Shakhtar have got off the mark in the Champions League as well. Despite admitting defeat against Manchester City in their opener, the squad bounced back in fashion in their last European clash and pulled off a 2-1 win over Atalanta.
Dinamo Zagreb, on the other hand, failed to extend their positive start to the campaign and were taken down by Pep Guardiola’s men in their last clash at home. The away side nevertheless have been showing promise in their recent matchups and tasted success in three of their last four games in all competitions.
Be that as it may, it goes without saying that Shakhtar are no easy side to push past especially on home soil. The Ukrainian outfit have been at the losing end just once in their previous five fixtures here and have won with a clean sheet intact in two of those matchups.
To make matters worse for the visiting faithful, the away side have not got the better of this side in any of their previous two meetings. With the visitors admitting defeat in three of their last five outings, Shakhtar are the favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Furthermore, the home team have been racking up the goals tally in their clashes here and have scored three goals or more in four of their last five fixtures at OSC Metalist. Taking into account that the hosts found the back of the net twice in their most recent European clash as well, expect Shakhtar to net over 1.5 goals without fail.
