Shakhtar Donetsk vs Benfica Betting Tips

Shakhtar Donetsk is having another successful season in the Ukrainian top flight, and after 16 victories and 2 draws they are 14 points clear at the top. However, in their latest competitive meetings across all competitions they registered mixed results 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat. In those latest affairs, they scored 7 goals, so I think that they will find the net on this occasion.

After an incredible seventeen-game undefeated run, Benfica recently failed to record a victory in 3 consecutive clashes. Even though they hit a bad run of form, they are still first in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. They are hoping to return to the winning ways in this meeting, but their opponent is very hard to beat at home, so I believe that they won't manage to achieve that. I reckon that we will see goals on both sides in this clash, as they netted one or more in all of their last 20 away meetings.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Benfica Correct Score Prediction

All their previous H2H meetings took place a long time ago, so I excluded those records form my analysis, and instead focused on other relevant data. Both teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of this affair, and since the hosts will have their home-ground advantage, but the visitors are a stronger team, I expect them to draw this match.
