Goals galore on matchday

Our first tip for Ludogorets vs Shakhtyor is more than two goals at full-time. Despite losing four of their last ten matches, Ludogorets found the net in all those games. They have won four of their last ten games with a decisive margin, three of which were clean-sheet victories. A 1-1 draw in mid-June against CFR Club still proved their excellent scoring record. On the other hand, Shakhtyor found the net in nine of their last ten fixtures, which makes the visitors a scoring prospect in this match.

Both teams to score

Given how these teams have performed in the last ten matches especially when it comes to scoring goals, our second pick is goals on both ends of the pitch. We expect a high scoring match between Ludogorets and Shakhtyor even though this will be the first-ever encounter between them.

Shakhtyor to win or Draw

Shakhtyor comes into this match with a better form than Ludogorets. For that, we expect the Belarusians to bag this first leg of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers. Ludogorets have been inconsistent and haven’t registered two successive wins in the last eight matches. On the other hand, Shakhtyor comes into this match with a seven-match unbeaten run, six of which were victories.

Top Betting Stats, the Best Odds and Additional Data

Will Shakhtyor Take Excellent Run into the UEFA Champions League Qualification?

This fixture will be a real test for Shakhtyor, especially because they have mostly played in Europa League. The Belarus team has the best run of form compared to the Bulgarian side, Ludogorets. Ludogorets has 2W, 1D and 2L in the last five matches. The focus will be on Ludogorets head coach, Valdas Dambrauskas who took over the Algerian team in January this year and averages 2.11 points per match after seeing out 18 fixtures. For Valdas Dambrauskas, fixing a shaky defence that has let in 12 goals in all their four losses in the last ten fixtures is important or he risks losing gaining nothing from a point of home advantage.

On the other hand, Shakhtyor head coach, Roman Hryhorchuk, averages 2.43 points per match after being in charge of 28 games. It is all thanks to a solid defence that has kept three clean sheets and conceded only two goals in the last five matches.
