Shakhtar Donetsk were stunned by Sheriff Tiraspol in their UEFA Champions League group opener, with the Ukrainian side having the lion’s share of possession in Moldova although they were not only outdone on shots on target but also the more important metric of goals where Sheriff claimed a 2-0 win.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side were made to pay for profligate finishing although we think the bookies have overreacted to this result when making Shakhtar big outsiders to win this clash at the Donbass Arena, with the team having racked up nineteen points from their eight games played domestically.

Inter themselves were also beaten in their Champions League bow, with Rodrygo’s late goal giving Real Madrid the victory at the San Siro Stadium, with Simone Inzaghi hoping to come storming back in this clash and they racked up six goals against Bologna shortly after losing to their Spanish opponents.

However, this is a tricky encounter for a team who have had a busy fixture schedule and we think this game will be a good deal closer than the betting odds suggest. Take the home side and the draw on the Double Chance betting market.
