Shakhtar Donetsk have given themselves every chance of qualifying from Champions League Group F ahead of hosting basement dwellers Feyenoord.
The Ukrainian title holders go into this game with a three-point cushion in second spot and hoping to increase that advantage, with third-placed Napoli entertaining Manchester City in the other fixture.
We’re snapping up 19/20 for a home win by more than one clear goal in our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Feyenoord betting predictions.
A Look At Shakhtar Donetsk’s Betting Odds
Shakhtar opened their campaign with a fine 2-1 defeat of Napoli at their temporary Kharkiv home and had their moments in a 2-0 loss at Manchester City.
A brace from Bernard then helped them come from behind to prevail 2-1 at Feyenoord, with the Pitmen holding on despite the 75th-minute dismissal of Yaroslav Rakitskiy.
Head coach Paulo Fonseca hailed his players for staying strong in an “attractive” match, which saw “both teams play open football”.
More of the same is expected in the return fixture, so we like 8/5 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Feyenoord betting tips.
A Look At Feyenoord’s Betting Odds
Feyenoord looked incredibly nervous when starting out with a 4-0 loss to Manchester City in Holland and again offered little in defeat at Napoli.
However, Sofyan Amrabat did bag a late consolation goal in Italy and Steven Berghuis was on target in a more positive showing in the first clash with Shakhtar.
There have been encouraging signs of Feyenoord finding their feet at this level, with forward Sam Larsson commenting: “We have learned and stepped up from each game.
“This was our best game so far. We have faith in ourselves and hopefully we will finish this Champions League campaign in a good way.”
The visitors do not look overawed against this week’s opposition, so that makes 8/5 for a home win and both teams to score tempting from the Shakhtar Donetsk vs Feyenoord odds.
