In this Champions League match Shakhtar Donetsk will host Napoli.

Shakhtar started their season with eight wins and one defeat. They lost only to Dynamo Kiev in the league, while they previously beat them in the Ukraine Super Cup. They are currently leading the league table with 21 points, which is bussiness as usual for them. There weren`t many changes in their personnel during transfer window and the team looks pretty much the same as last season. For this game Paulo Fonseca won`t be able to count on Malyshev and Krivtsov, who both picked up injuries recently.

Napoli started their season great and after three league games they are holding 100 percent record while putting up goal difference 9:2. Also, they easily passed Nice in the play-off game beating them twice 2:0. On Sunday they visited Bologna and recorded 3:0 victory. They had to wait until 66th minute to break the deadlock, but managed to score two more goals before the end to get deserved victory. Their style hasn`t changed and they are still looking to attack whenever possible, which makes their games a joy to watch. Chiriches has recovered from the shoulder injury and should be fit for the game, while Sarri won`t have any other injury concerns.

Shakhtar are playing their games in Kharkiv due to civil war in Donetsk, so the „home-field advantage“ won`t play part here. Napoli, however, will feel as visitors, but they showed no struggles on the road lately. Napoli have been showing good performances for some time now and they are entering this game as favourites. However, Shakhtar are far from naive team and they will have to say something here. Considering that both teams are playing attacking football we should see goals here. Both teams carry a lot of talent in attack and individual quality of players alone should ensure chances for both sides. I believe we will witness an entertaining game and the odds for over 2.5 goals look pretty good.

Good luck!
