Manchester United v Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Tips and Predictions


Only a defeat of four goals or more can deny Manchester United a place in the next round of the Champions League as they welcome the Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk to Old Trafford on Tuesday.

This is Manchester United’s third consecutive home game in all competitions and after defeats to Everton and Newcastle. However in the Champions League they have won both of their home games, beating Leverkusen 4-2 and Real Sociedad 1-0. Their price looks a bit high to me with this in mind, Shakhtar lost 4-0 away to Leverkusen, where Manchester United won 5-0 and a price of 23/20 with William Hill looks good.

Saying that though, Manchester United have kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches. They are struggling to keep goals out and taking on a Shakhtar team who aren’t exactly goal shy with nine in their last three matches, goals should go in here. I still expect Man U to win, especially with Rooney returning but Donetsk will make it hard work. Manchester United to win and both teams to score is a good price for me at 29/10 with Ladbrokes.

I have already mentioned Wayne Rooney who returns from suspension at the weekend to play in this match. For a player of his caliber to be 6/4 to score anytime in a match such as this seems good to me. Bet365 are offering the price of 6/4 on Rooney anytime.
