Monaco vs Shakhtar

Monaco cannot be happy with their start in the Ligue 1, as they picked up only two points from the opening two rounds. They drew with Nantes in the opening match of the domestic campaign while losing away to Lorient last weekend. However, Niko Kovac’s side didn’t have any troubles in the previous round in the Champions League quals. The hosts easily eliminated Sparta Prague thanks to a 5:1 aggregate victory. Nevertheless, Cesc Fabregas and the lads will face a much stronger opponent this time. They need to improve their finishing compared to the Ligue 1 performances to enhance their chances of securing a place in the group stage.

Shakhtar is determined to win the Ukrainian Premier League title after finishing as runners-up last time. However, they already lost one match in the opening four rounds and need to be more confident in the upcoming weeks. Lassina Traore and the lads faced Belgian side Genk in the previous round and celebrated a 4:2 aggregate victory. Roberto De Zerbi should work with his team to improve defending, as the visitors failed to keep the clean sheet three times on the last four occasions. They need a disciplined performance in Monaco to secure a positive result ahead of the next match in Ukraine.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a tight clash that can go either way. Monaco is a favorite in this match, but the hosts haven’t been impressive so far. Shakhtar should keep this tie interesting after this clash and shouldn’t lose by more than one goal.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides have significant attacking potential, while their defenses haven’t been stable so far. We could see an entertaining clash in which both teams should find the back of the opponent’s net.

Shakhtar AH +1 @ 1.70 

BTTS Yes @ 1.80 

Correct score 1:1 @ 8.00

They struggled hard in last season of France Ligue1 to qualify for UEFA Champions League and they did. They concentrate on the League at present, getting a two-match winning streak. But they can not take it slightly as Shakhtar Donetsk have quality and experience.


FC Shakhtar Donetsk

They are the top team in Ukrainian Premier League. Burkina Faso plays especially well, who has scored 4 goals for FC Shakhtar Donetsk this season so far. They are in form, getting a two-match winning streak.



Monaco are better than FC Shakhtar Donetsk. But FC Shakhtar Donetsk can not be ignored. They are in good condition now. Monaco must try their best in upcoming game so that they can defeat FC Shakhtar Donetsk in upcoming game.


1x2 Pick: 1

RB Salzburg v Brondy: 12 points on >7.5 home corners and >3.5 away corners at 27/5 Uni

The hosts are always in the notebook for corners. Various ways to attack this one, spreads or fixed odds (cross corners could be cheap at 20; home x away corners) but I'll go for a modest stake punt at decent odds via the "bet builder" option.

Sheriff Tiraspol v D Zagreb: 20 points on 4-6 cards shown at 11/10 Hills

System bet for me based on the bookings spreads. Doing badly of late but profitable over the long term.
