Shakhter begins their quest in this seasons Champions league in a fairly balanced game to me against Napoli. They are a team with enough European pedigree and they are known to play an interesting and attacking brand of football because of their Brazilian players which they usually have a lot of. They are very tough to beat at home and we could be in for a cracker of a game here tonight. They have started the league season in scintillating and have won all of their last 6 games. You could argue those games were against less quality oppositions, but take nothing away from this team, they are a good one with a nice blend of Brazilian players.

Napoli did well to beat Nice home and away in the qualifying round by a 4-0 aggregate scoreline and they have kicked off the domestic campaign in blistering form too with wins in all 3 games so far scoring 3 goals in all of them too. They do not have a lengthy record in this competition but they have been regulars for about 5 season now and they will hope to navigate their way from this group that contains Man City and Feyenoord also, so a good result here will go along way.

The odd compilers have made Napoli evens favorite here and I quite disagree. Shakhter are no pushovers at home and they will match Napoli here without fear. Napoli are not a top team yet and a trip to Ukraine would not be an easy game for them. All in all, I think Shakhter home advantage will play a key role here and they might just about edge this in a nervy encounter. Since they are priced so high by the bookmakers, I can still afford to take them on the draw no bet market and get a refund if it finishes all square but I give the advantage to the home team here.
