Shakhtar Donetsk will be at their rivals on Thursday for the Premier League tie with hosts Mynai.
Our Mynai v Shakhtar Donetsk predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Mynai will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against Zorya Luhansk.
Mynai have really struggled up front of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure equals just 3 against opposition teams over the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Mynai have also seen the tally of goals against them total 8. That pattern isn’t assured to follow through here, of course.
Ahead of this clash, Mynai are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches at home.
Shakhtar Donetsk will go into the game following a 2-1 Premier League win with the defeat of Dnipro-1 in their last match.
Luís Castro's Shakhtar Donetsk have had reason to celebrate scoring a total of 9 times in the course of their latest six matches. The total of goals that they have conceded during those matches adds up to 7.
Team News: Mynai
Mynai manager will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a completely healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Shakhtar Donetsk
Shakhtar boss Luís Castro has some current player fitness concerns. Maksym Malyshev (Knee Surgery), Ismaily (Knee Injury), Yevgen Konoplyanka (Torn Muscle), Valeriy Bondar (Ruptured intraarticular ligament initiation in knee) and Júnior Moraes (Ruptured cruciate ligament) miss out here. Dodô is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our feeling is that Mynai certainly have the ability to put a goal past this Shakhtar Donetsk outfit, although one goal probably won’t quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We can see both teams to score in a 1-2 win for Shakhtar Donetsk at the end of this one. There looks to be little in this one.
