Feyenoord to Win

Feyenoord secured a useful 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in last week’s first leg, though the Dutch side should really have won after they racked up a huge 21 attempts to their opponent’s five. However, back in Rotterdam, we expect Arne Slot’s side to make their dominance count. De Stadionclub have yet to lose a competitive fixture on home soil this term, and our first Feyenoord vs Shakhtar Donetsk prediction backs them to shine in front of their own supporters again on Thursday.

Over 1.5 Feyenoord Goals

The second of today’s football betting tips dips into the goals markets and we’re tipping Feyenoord to net over 1.5 of them against Shakhtar on Thursday. Feyenoord only registered once in last week’s first leg, though they mustered 21 shots in the game, five of which were saved by Anatoliy Trubin and with a little more luck, they’d have run up a bigger score. However, back on home turf, where Feyenoord have notched at least twice in five of their last six assignments, they should be more clinical.

Feyenoord

Quinten Timber has a knee injury and won't be available until next month, while keeper Justin Bijlow is out of action with a broken wrist. Elsewhere, Patrik Walemark is considered a doubt. Feyenoord kept their Eredivisie title charge on track when they beat Volendam 2-1 at the weekend.

Shakhtar Donetsk

Shakhtar Donetsk have minimal injury or suspension worries this week, though Marian Shved is still listed as injured. The Ukrainian giants used a 4-1-4-1 formation in last week's first leg and a similar set-up could be used by Head Coach Igor Jovicevic on Thursday evening.

Predicted Lineup for Shakhtar Donetsk: Trubin – Taylor, Matviyenko, Rakitskyi, Topalov – Stepanenko, Zubkov, Bondarenko, Sudakov, Kryskiv – Traore

Player to Watch – Lutsharel Geertruida

Lutsharel Geertruida has been a rock at the back for Feyenoord this season and the 22-year-old centre-half has been a consistent presence for De Stadionclub at the heart of the team’s defence. Geertruida came up through the youth ranks at Feyenoord and he could be set for a big-money move in the summer.
