Shakhtar Donetsk vs FC Basel prediction comes ahead of the Europa League quarter-final fixture between Shakhtar and Basel at the Arena AufSchalke in Germany on Tuesday. Let’s take a look at the match preview as we try to provide the best betting tips and correct score prediction for this tie.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs FC Basel Betting Tips

Shakhtar were already cruising towards the quarter-final of the European competition. But 3 goals in the space of 4 minutes in the last game against Wolfsburg made sure the Ukrainians proceed in style, as they won 5-1 on aggregate. Shakhtar are unbeaten since football returned after the lockdown.

They face a top Swiss side in Basel in the one-legged round on Tuesday. Basel too are undefeated in their last 6 games in all competitions (W2, D3). They also have a solid defensive record in the Europa League with 5 clean sheets in a row now, in the competition.

Shakhtar have always beaten Basel whenever the sides have met either in the Champions League or in friendlies. Not only that, but the Ukrainian club has scored 16 goals in the 5 meetings against Basel which averages to more than 3 goals per game on each occasion. These are some really good statistics.

With the game being played at a neutral venue, the away form becomes absolutely necessary as it gives us a clear idea about which side performs better on a stranger turf. Shakhtar takes the laurels in this aspect too, with 4 wins and 1 draw in their last 5 away fixtures. Basel, on the other hand, have won just 1 of their last 5 away games in all competitions, which suggests they are not the best team on unfamiliar soil.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs FC Basel Correct Score Predictions

Shakhtar go favourites into this one, not only with the previous meetings’ record and recent form but also due to them being great away from home. Basel have a good defensive record in the Europa League and so, will not be conceding a lot of goals for sure. This should be a Shakhtar domination and should end in a 2-0 win for the Ukrainian side.
