Shakhtar Donetsk can qualify for the knockout rounds of the Champions League at RB Leipzig’s expense if they can beat the Germans on Wednesday. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Shakhtar Donetsk Double Chance

Shakhtar Donetsk’s Champions League future hangs in the balance, however, their destiny remains in their own hands and if they beat RB Leipzig in Warsaw on Wednesday, they will head to the tournament’s knockout rounds ahead of the Bundesliga outfit. The Ukrainians have only lost once in five Group F assignments so far and they tore Leipzig to shreds on the break when the teams last met in September (4-1). A similar tactical approach could reap dividends again in the rematch and Shakhtar are available at a great price in the double chance market to pull off another upset.

Mykhailo Mudryk to Score Anytime

Mykhailo Mudryk has risen to prominence this season and put himself on the radar of a number of top clubs across the continent thanks to his sparkling performances in the Champions League. The 21-year-old has already scored three times in the group stage and RB Leipzig couldn’t live with Mudryk’s pace and close control when he notched against them in September. With five goals in his last four appearances in all competitions, Mudryk takes strong recent form into Wednesday’s game where he is a big price to find the net again.
