Real Madrid 1/5 to win against Shakhtar Donetsk in tonight’s Champions League clash
Competition: Champions League
Market: Real Madrid to win against Shakhtar Donetsk
Odds: 1/5 @ Betfair
Real Madrid lock horns with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tonight, and are expected to earn a comfortable win at the Santiago Bernabeu. Winners of the 2013/14 Champions League, the Spanish giants are desperate for another deep run this time round after their failed defence last season.
Given Rafael Benitez’s men have a 100% in their own backyard, while having picked up seven points from a possible nine in La Liga, they are in great shape to get all three points today. Averaging more than three goals per game in their domestic division, Los Blancos could blow away Shakhtar in the Champions League.
The visitors are enjoying a good season themselves, however. Second in the Ukrainian Premier League seven games in, Shakhtar have on two and drawn one of their three away games, so they might put up some resistances against Real when the two sides square off.
Nevertheless, Real seldom drop points at home, and have a strong lineup for this evening’s clash. As a result, Betfair are giving odds of 1/5 for the Spaniards to see past Shakhtar to get their Champions League campaign off to a perfect start.
