Shakhtar Donetsk v Olympique Lyonnais
KICK OFF: Wednesday 12th December 2018 | 20:00 GMT
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GROUP F: Matchday 6 | Metalist Oblast Sports Complex
Expect a Metalist Goalfest When Shakhtar Welcome Lyon
It’s all up for grabs in for the three sides not named Manchester City in Group F. With the reigning English champions having already qualified for the knockout stages of Europe’s premier cup competition, there’s another place in the Last 16 and a berth in the Europa League up for the best of the rest.
Shakhtar handed themselves a massive lifeline with a 92nd-minute winner at 10-man Hoffenheim in Matchday 5 after looking almost certain to finish bottom of their group. The Miners looked dejected after a 6-0 loss at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City but rallied well to give themselves a chance of qualification.
Lyon, on the other hand, should really expect themselves to earn a result in this one. Les Gones are unbeaten in European competition this season, despite only winning once.
Both teams have found the net in all five of those matches, whatever the result here, expect goals.
- Result Prediction: Lyon or Draw Double Chance
- Score Prediction: Both Teams to Score 2+ Goals
