Shakhtar Donetsk vs Real Madrid preview

Last week's game between these sides was a curious fixture with Madrid playing extremely well at times, but ending up looking nervously towards the clock by the end.

This should be a much-changed side for the visitors who will still look to be competitive but are unlikely to play some of the scintillating football they showed at the Bernabeu.

Thibaut Courtois is likely to be missing in the Madrid goal and with plenty of players likely to be rested there should be interest in backing Shakhtar to score as they did in the Spanish capital last week.
