Shakhtar Donetsk and Lyon are going into a direct clash for the second place in Group F in the Champions League. Until this game, Lyon have two points more than his opponent in this game, and Shakhtar need a win so they can qualify for the knockout phase of the competition. The Miners played well in the first five matches in the tournament, even though the team conceded 15 goals – nine of these goals were against Manchester City. The team of Shakhtar never had three games at home in the Champions League without a win since 2013.

Lyon are undefeated this season in the competition – one win and four draws. The Kids have scored 11 goals in these games. In every one of these matches, they scored at least two goals. We expect more of the same on Wednesday. Shakhtar Donetsk need a win and will try to attack which will benefit Lyon’s fast strikers. In the games between both teams were scored average four goals and we think this line will be reached. I will back Lyon Over 1.5 Goals, with Draw 2-2 Correct Score.
