Celtic and Shakhtar Donetsk to Draw

While Celtic is likely going to end up last in this group, they still have a theoretical chance to finish third or even second, both of which seem unlikely given their performances this season.

Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk is only one point behind RB Leipzig and they are hoping to reach the next stage. However, the two teams drew in their first duel and we can see that happening again in Scotland, which would hurt Shakhtar's chances of getting out of the group.
