Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

Drawn in Group B with the likes of Inter Milan, Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk, Los Blancos will have to be at their utmost best to progress from this tricky pack. With these giants pitted together, this could effectively be termed ‘the Group of Death’.

Madrid had a howler in the Champions League last season, crashing out in the round-of-16 of the competition. Taking on English giants Man City, Zidane’s men were completely outclassed over two legs. Losing 4-2 on aggregate, Los Blancos bowed out embarrassingly.

However, the fans will not feel too disheartened by their short-lived run in Europe’s elite competition, given they were on fire in the domestic campaign. Finishing top of the standings, Real Madrid clinched the La Liga title, whilst booking a ticket to the CL group stages as well.

Madrid will now begin their European journey with a game against this tricky Shakhtar Donetsk side. Their start to the new domestic campaign has been decent, picking up ten points from their opening five games. Far from their best last time out, they were defeated by newly-promoted Cadiz.
 
Shakhtar Donetsk are the strongest side in Ukraine, and have remained so for the past decade. They have now clinched the league title four times in a row, much to the delight of their supporters. These ones are simply unstoppable in their country.

Present in the previous edition of the Champions League, Donetsk were in shambles, failing to make it past the group stages. Relegated to the Europa League, they fared pretty well until comfortably hammered 5-0 by Inter Milan in the semifinals.

Their start to the new league campaign hasn’t been ideal, but pretty satisfactory. With only five games played, the Moles occupy third-spot on the log. Their previous match saw them put Lviv to the sword, posting a 5-1 score-line on the board.

Injured or Suspended Players

Real Madrid: Daniel Carvajal, Mariano Diaz, Eden Hazard, Martin Odegaard and Alvaro Odriozola.

Shakhtar Donetsk: Maksym Malyshev, Ismaily, Yevgen Konoplyanka, Mykola Matvienko, Sergiy Kryvtsov and Junior Moraes.
