Shakhtar stunned the Champions League spectators on matchday one as they demolished RB Leipzig by four goals to one. Now they will play Celtic in the next round, a side which was beaten well by the European Champions Real Madrid in their own backyard. Shakhtar's win in the Ukrainian Premier League on the weekend takes them to four consecutive wins in all competitions, and a five-game unbeaten record. On the other hand, Celtic could not amend their form due to the cancellation of sporting events in honour of the Late Queen Elizabeth II. Before the Madrid defeat, Celtic were in an unreal form of 10 wins from 11 games, including a streak of 17 goals scored in just 3 fixtures. Celtic should not be underestimated here, based on the Real Madrid performance last week.

Shakhtar vs Celtic Betting Tips: Draw

We are counting on Celtic's over-the-top goalscoring record as of late, barring the Real Madrid defeat. We believe that the Scottish giants will open the scoring in this game as they have done in 8 of their last 9 games now, and carry the lead to half time. But, Shakhtar should be able to draw one level and end the game with a 1-1 draw. There is no chance the Ukrainians break their 5-game unbeaten record on Wednesday, but they surely do not have enough firepower to beat this Celtic side, who is much better than them on paper. Our final prediction is a Draw with the result ending in a 1-1 scoreline.

Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

Shakhtar's opening day against Leipzig was so good, that it also revealed many different facets to the Ukrainian side's game. First and foremost, striker Mykhaylo Mudryk put in a stunning performance to play a part in each of the three goals, either through an assist or directly by scoring it. Wide-operating midfielder Maryan Shved scored a brace to open his account in Europe, and he shall not be underestimated by the Scottish Premiership side too. On the defending front, Mykola Matviyenko is one player to keep an eye on. Matviyenko makes an average of 4 interceptions per game, saving his side from some crucial moments of the opposition.

Celtic Team News

Jota and Liel Abada will have to amend their poor performance against Real Madrid last week. The forward duo was tipped to disturb Real Madrid on matchday one, but hardly penetrated the Champions' defence to make their mark, let alone score a goal. Jota and Abada have already contributed to 15 goals together this season, which is 60% of the team's total goals this season. Just behind them, in the middle of the park, the most influential character has been midfielder Matt O'Riley. O'Riley makes 3.2 key passes per game to open up the opposition defence. He is joined by centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers in the defensive part, as Carter-Vickers makes 1.2 interceptions per game in the Premiership. Jota, Abada, O'Riley and Carter-Vickers will be our three players to watch.
