- Brazil Serie B
- 23:00 Sampaio Corrêa vs Brusque
Sheriff will welcome Shakhtar Donetsk to Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena for a matchday 1 fixture in Europe UEFA Champions League.
Sheriff's latest fixture against Dinamo Zagreb ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.
Shakhtar Donetsk's recent game against Monaco ended in a home 2-2 draw. The strikers had plenty of good goal-scoring opportunities. They should have done better to earn their team three points instead of one. Shakhtar Donetsk pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 74th and 114th minute.
Since the start of the season, Sheriff is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 5 games on home soil. Viespile has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 80% of their home games.
Shakhtar Donetsk has picked up 10 points from the previous five league games. Shakhtar Donetsk don't feel the pressure of playing away. So far, they earn an average of 2.00 points per game, both home and away. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Shakhtar Donetsk kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Recently they are out of form and have lost zero home matches in a row. Sheriff is undefeated at home but not considered a favourite. They have drawn 0% of home games. Sheriff has won just 100% of home games. On average they score 2.00 goals and concede 0.20 per game. Shakhtar Donetsk is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Sheriff wins on average 3.00 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Shakhtar Donetsk. My prediction is Shakhtar Donetsk to win.
