Monaco vs Shakhtar Donetsk Predictions and Betting Tips

The final stage of the UCL qualifying rounds goes underway this Tuesday. Our attention would be at the Stade Louis II as Monaco play hosts Shakhtar in the first leg of this highly anticipated doubleheader. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.

This would be the first-ever continental meeting between both sides. Who picks up the first-leg victory?

Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards

AS Monaco comfortably saw off Sparta Praha 5-1 across both legs in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying rounds. However, it hasn’t quite been the same in the domestic league with the side managing just one point in their first two games. Although they were held on opening day at home against Nantes in a 1-1 draw, an even more disastrous performance last weekend away at Lorient beckoned as they failed to pick up a single point in a 1-0 loss. Can they manage to put aside their domestic struggles as they did in the previous round?

Two 2-1 victories for the Ukrainian outfit in the previous round against Genk made sure of a place in the UCL playoffs. They have also been fairly decent in the Ukrainian Premier League as they currently sit in 3rd place with nine points from four games. In their most recent game, they emerged 2-0 winners against Metalist 1925 via two second-half goals from Stepanenko and Traore.

AS Monaco vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction: 1-1

With both sides being regulars in the UEFA Champions League group stages, we expect to see a tightly contested affair in France this Tuesday. However, we can’t quite see a clear winner with both sides looking like they would cancel each other out.
