Moldovan side Sheriff is the surprise package in the Champions League group stage, after coming all the way through the qualifiers to reach this level for the first time in their history. They start their Group D journey at home to Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk, looking to get three points on board. Sheriff are unbeaten in 12 matches, with 10 wins in there. They’ve scored two or more goals in six of the last 10 matches while they have five straight clean sheets. In Champions League matches, all at the qualification stage, Sheriff are unbeaten in their last eight, with six clean sheets. To get here, they did eliminate some established sides, including Dinamo Zagreb and Red Star Belgrade. At home, they have five straight wins in the Champions League, with four clean sheets, and they’ve scored two or more in three of their last five home matches in the same competition.

Shakhtar Donetsk on the other hand, take to this game a run of seven matches unbeaten, with five wins in there. They’ve scored in each of the last 11 matches and managed two or more goals in seven of their last 10. Away from home Shakhtar are unbeaten in the last five, winning four and keeping three clean sheets.

Those wins stretched Shakhtar’s unbeaten run in the Champions League to six matches, and they’ve scored twice in four of the six. They are unbeaten in their last three away matches in the competition, and won three of the last five. In their last five away Champions League matches, Shakhtar have beaten Real Madrid, Monaco, Genk, then drawn with Inter, which makes them a really formidable side!
