Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After the difficult game in the Clasico against Barcelona Real Madrid will travel towards Donetsk, Ukraine for a match against Shakthar Donetsk in the Champions League. After 4 games Real Madrid managed to qualify for the knock out stage having with 10 points. Shakthar Donetsk was a difficult outsider on first sight but after the first 3 games it was clear that Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid would qualify easily. Shakthar Donetsk is having 3 points just like Malmo FF. In order to reach to the Europa League knock out stage the team form Donetsk will have to set a good result against Real Madrid or Paris Saint Germain. We predict Shakthar to be able to tie against Real Madrid. Real Madrid is already qualified and will still be in shock after the Barcelona disaster. If Shakthar is able to reach to the knock out stage in the Europa League it would be able to reach far in the tournament.
