Inter hosts Shakhtar Donetsk in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, November 24th at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan)
After four matches, Inter Milan has seven points. Simeone Inzaghi's charges are in second place in the group standings. The lag behind the leading Real Madrid is two points. If the Black-Blues want to compete for 1st place, they need to win the upcoming game. If the 2nd position suits them, then a draw will be enough. I cannot say that the Milanese perform successfully in home matches in the Champions League. In the last ten games, Internazionale gained only two victories, with five draws and three defeats. In the current Champions League draw, the Black-Blues chalked up two victories, one draw, and one defeat. The goal difference is 6-3. It is noteworthy that six out of seven points were earned due to two wins over Sheriff Tiraspol (3-1 and 1-3).

For a long time, Shakhtar Donetsk did not look so weak in the Champions League as they did this season. Only in the last round did the Miners score their first goal in the group stage. The results look terrible. Four rounds ended in three defeats and one draw, and the goal difference is 1-9. It is quite logical that De Zerbi's men are in the last position in the group standings. It is noteworthy that the Orange-and-Blacks conceded at least two goals in three out of four games. Besides, three cases ended with “Both teams to score — no”. In the last six away games in the Champions League, Shakhtar Donetsk gained only two victories (with one draw and three defeats).
The last head-to-head match between Inter and Shakhtar ended in a goalless draw. These opponents played against each other only six times. Inter won two times, and four games ended in draws. In 17 out of 18 previous home games in the Champions League, the Black-Blues have not scored more than two goals. Now the fans will see a due not only between two strong clubs but also between two talented Italian coaches. Inzaghi relies on defense. On the other hand, De Zerbi professes sharp and combinational football. In the first match, the teams were unable to determine the strongest. Now a draw will suit the hosts only partially, and the visitors will not be pleased with it at all. I expect that the Ukrainians will play attack first. The hosts, as always, will bet on counterattacks. I think Shakhtar Donetsk will not lose with a large goal difference.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtar Donetsk to win with +1.5 handicap
