Our match prediction:
Anderlecht face an uphill task in the Europa League last 16, return leg. The Belgian outfit need to overcome a two-goal deficit in the tie against the Miners and, no doubt, the hosts will have a mountain to climb if they are to make it to the Europa League quarter-finals. Besnik Hasi’s men have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Shakhtar Donetsk and we believe that the hosts are capable of finding the net in the return leg. On the other hand, the Ukrainians are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and there is every chance we will see a real football festival at Stade Constant Vanden Stock. It will be tough to predict correct score, but we are positive that both teams will find the net in Thursday’s Europa League game. You should have in mind that over 2.5 goals were scored in each of Shakhtar’s last five games.
