Shakhtar Donetsk vs Benfica Lisbon Prediction & Betting Tips - Europa League

 by Steve Ashfield | in Europa League Prediction

Shakhtar Donetsk had a tough draw in the Champions League and failed to make it to the knock-out stages. Now in the Europa League, they host Benfica in the first leg of their last 32 tie. Shakhtar finished behind Manchester City and Atalanta in their group, losing to both of them at home. They will be back in the Champions League next season as they currently lead the Ukranian league by 14 points. They have failed to win their last three games in the Europa League and will find this a difficult task.

Benfica are top of the Portuguese league, a point clear of Porto. They have had a bad week or so with defeats by second placed Porto and Braga who are third. Before that they had gone 17 games without defeat. Benfica also began the season in the Champions League group stages but failed to finish in the top two with RB Leipzig and Lyon qualifying ahead of them. Only one of their last 11 away games have been lost (the defeat at Porto) and a double chance bet on them to win or draw this game should be a winner.

Our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Benfica Lisbon Prediction

Both sides were knocked out of the Champions League at the group stage. Shakhtar lost two of their home group games so Benfica have no reason to be scared of going to the Ukraine. The Portuguese league leaders have struggled against the sides second and third in the table but should be able to either win or draw this match and finish the tie off in the home second leg.
