All Shakhtar Donetsk v Dnipro-1 game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below (plus the best game odds).
Shakhtar Donetsk will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against Oleksandria.
Luís Castro's Shakhtar Donetsk have celebrated scoring 8 times over their past 6 outings. The corresponding tally of goals that have been scored against them in that time amounts to 8.
Dnipro-1 come into this encounter after a 3-0 Premier League win with the downing of Mynai in their previous fixture.
A run of hard-working performances from the Dnipro-1 defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their last 6 fixtures in total. During the same time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 12. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend will be continued on here.
Coming into this meeting, Dnipro-1 are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.
Team News: Shakhtar Donetsk
Maksym Malyshev (Knee Surgery), Yevgen Konoplyanka (Torn Muscle), Valeriy Bondar (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee) and Júnior Moraes (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be able to feature for Shakhtar boss Luís Castro.
Team News: Dnipro-1
Owing to an otherwise healthy group, there’s just the one fitness problem for the Dnipro-1 boss to be concerned with. Oleksandr Pikhalyonok (Appendicitis) won’t be playing here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Shakhtar Donetsk should be able to score a couple against Dnipro-1, who could well find it tough to break down their defence.
Therefore, we are anticipating a comfortable 2-0 win for Shakhtar Donetsk come full-time.
