Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A spot in the Champions League last 16 will be at stake when Shakhtar Donetsk and Atalanta take on each other at Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist on Wednesday evening. Seeing that Dinamo Zagreb face an uphill task against Manchester City, Shakhtar Donetsk should be happy with one point from their last group game.
The Ukrainian champions are likely to adopt a cautious approach against Atalanta and given the Orobici’s poor away record in European competitions; we are positive that the hosts are going to grab something from the match. Gian Piero Gasperini’s troops face a must-win situation against Shakhtar Donetsk, but beating the Miners in Ukraine is easier said than done. Andriy Shevchenko’s troops are tough to beat at home, and we are positive that they will secure their place in the Champions League knockout stages without any difficulties.
