Verdict Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk, 23h55 on 21/10 by win365
The home advantage and impressive Champions League record are enough for Real Madrid to stop Shakhtar Donetsk from creating a shock.
Real Madrid is the best club in the history of the European Cup / Champions League with 13 championships. Particularly in the era of the Champions League, Los Blancos also owned the most coronations (7 times), far from the rest at least 3 times.
Among the coaches participating in the Champions League group stage in the 2020/21 season, Zinedine Zidane is also the coach that owns the most titles. Zizou has won this prestigious tournament three times as a head coach, more than 1 time compared to second place Pep Guardiola.
Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk's best performance in the Champions League is only reaching the quarterfinals (2010/11 season). Their head coach - Mr. Luis Castro - has just had a second season in the Champions League. Last season, he could not help Shakhtar get through the group stage.
The above correlation shows: if you beat Real Madrid in the middle of this week, Shakhtar Donetsk will create a real shock. But that shock is likely not due to the gap in terms of qualifications between the two teams as well as the presence of Ukraine's representatives as guests.
Previously, Real Madrid used to share the same table with Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2015/16 season. Result: Real Madrid won both matches: the first leg won 4-3 on away field and the second leg won 4-0 at home. Los Blancos were also led by Zinedine Zidane and made 46 shots on both occasions against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Real Madrid is also unbeaten in the last 8 times against the representatives of Ukraine in the Champions League. Called unbeaten is somewhat modest because Los Blancos won 5 of them, including the aforementioned 2 victories over Shakhtar Donetsk.
All in all, Shakhtar Donetsk hardly created a shock on Spanish soil. They promise to be defeated by this true 'giant' of the Champions League.
The last 10/11 matches of Real Madrid ended with a total of 3 or more goals. But this scenario of many goals is difficult to reproduce when they host Shakhtar Donetsk.
Reason: Real Madrid's last 2 home matches have not witnessed more than 1 goal. In the past few months, Los Blancos have not often produced victories with big gaps.
