Shakhtar Donetsk take on the visitors Celtic in the round 2 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, September 14th at Stadion Wojska Polskiego (Warsaw).
Shakhtar Donetsk debuted in its new look in European competition last week. It was in many ways a completely different version of the composition than a year ago. Instead of an abundance of Brazilians in the company of Manor Solomon - only 1 Lucas Taylor. He moved from PAOK, but previously played a lot in Ukraine. The rest at the first team were purely players with a national passport. And Igor Jovicevich made his debut as a coach in the tournament. And the Pitmen took out RB Leipzig in Germany! Yes, they are very lucky. Playful Gulachi helped Shved open the score. And, only the Germans leveled, there was a blow with a double rebound from the same Maryan. But still, 4-1 cannot be attributed to the bulls' problems alone. Well, Mudrik should be noted - it was not for nothing that he was not released in the summer either to the Premier League or to the Bundesliga. He was involved in the 2nd goal of the Swede, he scored the most important goal and crossed on Traore. Lassina marked his comeback from injury by scoring after coming on as a substitute.

Celtic returned to the Champions League. It was lucky that, unlike previous years, it was not necessary to play a qualification. Scotland's rating has risen so much that the champion of the country received a ticket directly to the group stage. And the “hoops” last season were able to regain 1st place. And, judging by the recent victory over the Rangers, Ante Postecoglu's wards clearly do not intend to give the title to anyone. However, apart from neighbors, there is no threat in the domestic arena from anyone. Here at the international level, the season started with a failure, but, by the way, largely expected. After all, Real Madrid came to Glasgow last Tuesday. And, despite the incredible support of the fans and the early injury of Benzema, the Spanish giants took a victory. The Celts held out a little more than half, until the goal of Vinicius Junior in the 56th minute. Then Modric and even Hazard scored, which replaced Karim.
The clubs met in the Champions League in 2004 and 2007. Then they strictly exchanged home victories over each other. Bookmakers consider Shakhtar to be the favorite. But remember that they still have to play in Poland, so it’s better to use a safety net in the form of a “zero” handicap for the Pitmen.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtar Donetsk to win with 0.0 handicap.
