Shakhtar vs Hoffenheim Prediction 19 September 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist
Match date: 19.09.2018 at 17:55

On September 19 2018 at 17:55 at the Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist in the forhtocimung game of the UEFA Champions League group stage Shakhtar are playing against their guests from Germany Hoffenheim. While Shakhtar usually participate in the Champions League Hoffenheim are going to do it for the first time in their history. We will see how ready the Germans are for the challenges of the most prestigious competition of the Old World.

Shakhtar are now on the first place in the national championship as they have already gained 21 points in their 8 matches played. In the latest game they played Fonseca’s side won 2:0 in the away game against Alexandria. They are the most scoring team of the national championship as they score at least two goals in almost all of their matches of the national championship. In the previous season Shakhtar made it to the Round of 16 of the Champions League and were kicked-off from it by Roma.

As for Hoffenheim they failed the previous season of the Euro Cups as they took the last position in the group of the Europa League. Yet, in spring they managed to take the third place in the Bundesliga and it let them make it to the Champions League in the end. They don’t seem to be doing really well in the Bundesliga as they have only gained three points in their three games played. Hoffenheim mostly choose to attack a lot and this season it doesn’t let them help at all.

This time Shakhtar will be the favorites of the upcoming match. Shakhtar don’t usually fail a lot at the group stage of the Champions League especially playing against the underdogs of the groups. At the same time we don’t think that Hoffenheim will have a lot of chances to compensate lack of experience in the prestigious competitions. That’s why we expect the hosts to win this time.
