Shakhtar vs Real Madrid Preview

Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid meet for the second time in two weeks at the Polish Army Stadium in Warsaw. Shakhtar play all of their UCL home fixtures there because of the unfortunate situation in Ukraine at the moment. The Cup Team can boost their chances of making it into the Round of 16 with a victory. While Real are three points away from securing qualification.

Shakhtar’s most recent league fixture against FC Lviv was postponed. Though this allowed them to rest and recover, this can result in a lack of match sharpness going into Tuesday’s match.

Igor Jovićević’s team will look to improve after the 2-1 defeat at the Bernabeu. Though it ended 2-1, it should’ve been four or five. They got cut open on numerous occasions but Madrid failed to take their chances.

Anytime Mudryk met Dani Carvajal in a foot race, he got the better of the Spaniard. So Shakhtar will have to be braver and try to utilize the pace and skill of their starman more often.

A third-minute Militao header was enough to hand Los Blancos all three points against Getafe. It was another good performance that lacked cutting edge in attack. Real needed these three points as they play league leaders Barcelona next.

The Spanish champions are still unbeaten this season and are eager to maintain their great form. Carlo Ancelotti will make more rotations in this match to give some of his star players a rest.

Karim Benzema will start this match and he’ll want to score a few before the much-anticipated El Clasico on the weekend.

It’s an important fixture for both teams and it’s set to be an entertaining game.
