Shakhtar Donetsk v Eintracht Frankfurt Preview
Shakhtar started in the Champions League group stage this season, but only managed to collect the one win there, finishing behind Man City and Lyon. They could have actually progressed in the Champions League if they had beaten Lyon on matchday six, but they could only manage a draw. This is their fifth appearance in the round of 32 but the Ukrainians have only won one of those previous ties at this stage.
Shahkar didn’t win any of their home games in the group stage, but the Pitmen have only lost two of their last 17 European home games (W11 D4). They are without a clean sheet in their last eight though. Their overall record against German opposition is W7 D6 L6. They haven’t won any of the four previous home games at this stage of the competition (D2 L2). They are on a five-match sequence of draws at home against German opposition.
Frankfurt took six wins from six games in the group stage of the Europa League, topping Italian side Lazio there. They have lost all three of their previous games in the Ukraine, but have won two of their three previous European ties against Ukrainian opposition. The last time that Frankfurt made it past the group stage of the Europa League was back in the 2013/14 season where they lost in the round of 32 against Porto.
They are a side with a bit of away from going as they have suffered just one default in their last eleven away game in continental action (W6 D4). Their overall record in the Europa league is W13 D2 L1, the lone defeat in that sequence happening at Maccabi Tel-Aviv back in 2013. Frankfurt have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last 17 European games. They are one of seven teams to come through the group stage undefeated.
Who will win – Shakhtar Donetsk v Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions
Shakhtar Donetsk are a side who can hold themselves together on home soil, so this will be a tough away game for Frankfurt. But the Germans are good in attack so the safest option we see is both teams to score at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 11th, 2019 at 11:18 p.m.)
