The UEFA Champions League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Shakhtar Donetsk take on RB Leipzig in an important clash at the Polish Army Stadium on Wednesday. RB Leipzig are currently in sixth place in the Bundesliga standings and have improved after a poor start to their campaign.
The away side stunned Real Madrid with a 3-2 victory last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture. Shakhtar Donetsk, on the other hand, are in second place in the Ukrainian Premier League table at the moment and have been impressive on the domestic front. The hosts were held to a disappointing 2-2 draw by Oleksandriya in their previous game and will need to take it up a notch this week.
Shakhtar Donetsk have an excellent record against RB Leipzig on the European front and have won the only match that has been played between the two teams. The two teams faced each other in the reverse fixture in September this year, with Shakhtar Donetsk securing a comfortable 4-1 victory at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig.
Shakhtar Donetsk had only five touches in RB Leipzig’s penalty area in the reverse fixture and scored from all their four shots on target on the day. Shakhtar have conceded 22 goals in their last six European games against German opponents but have managed to win two of these matches. However, they’ve won only one of their last 12 matches in the UEFA Champions League but did win their reverse fixture against RB Leipzig during this period.
RB Leipzig are only one victory away from securing qualification to the knock-out stages of the UEFA Champions League for the third time in their last four seasons, so we can expect the Red Bulls to go all out and try to get the win in Ukrainian soil.
