Home side is in a very good series of five straight victories in which they’ve conceded just three times. They are sitting on the top of the table in the domestic league being five points ahead of their closest rivals.

Junior Moraes and the lads have been very productive so far with 20 goals scored, while their defence is rock solid.

Manchester City are the top favourites in their group, however they might search for the 2nd spot in the clashes against Hoffenheim and Lyon.

Shakhtar Donetsk still haven’t allowed a single point to their opponents when playing at home, although they needed to move away from their Donbas Arena due to unstable situation in Ukraine.

This is Hoffenheim’s premier participation in the top continental cup and they want to have a good campaign. They had a very successful last season as they managed to finish as third. However, Julian Nagelsmann’s side managed to book only one victory in the first three rounds in the Bundesliga this season, along with two defeats.

Hoffe have been doing well in the front, while their defence needs to be tighter as they haven’t managed to keep the clean sheet yet. The visitors won’t give up on the top two and we should expect to see very tight battle for the place in the eight-finals.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Hoffenheim: Head-to-head

We didn’t have the chance to see these two sides in the action against each other as the visitors have started to participate in the continental cups just recently.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Hoffenheim: Prediction

Although the visitors are capable enough of getting away undefeated from this one, their lack of experience in these matches might be the main factor which will decide the winner. Shakhtar Donetsk should be able to keep all three points at home.

The visitors have been involved in a lot of high scoring matches lately and ten out of their last eleven matches went over 2.5 margin. Their attacking approach could drive this clash to a minimum of three goals in total.

  • Shakhtar to win @ 12/11 (2.05)
