Shakhtar vs Monaco Match Preview and Team News
After spending three years out of the Champions League, Monaco’s return to the competition could be short-lived, as they stand the risk of elimination at the playoff stage. They head to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the return leg of their clash, having lost 1-0 at home. Shakhtar is having a solid season so far and goes to this game on four straight wins, having scored two or more in three of them. They have scored in each of their last five matches and are coming here from a 3-0 away win over Chornomorets in their domestic league. They have kept clean sheets in their previous three games, and in the last 10, they have one loss and eight wins. At home, Shakhtar has five wins in the last seven matches, and in the Champions League, they haven’t lost any of their previous five games, winning four and drawing one. Maycon has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Tete enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
Monaco head to this game on three straight losses and their goal-scoring touch is also gone. They haven’t scored in their last three matches and have no clean sheet in their previous five games. While they go here in need of a 2-0 win to turn this tie in their favor, Monaco has failed to score more than a goal in four of their last five matches. They suffered a 2-0 home loss to Lens in their previous game, which they finished with ten men after Aleksandr Golovin’s red card in the 86th minute. That was their second straight loss at home, and they will be hoping for some reprieve away from home, but they have two defeats in their last three away matches. Aleksandr Golovin should be fit to face Shakhtar on Tuesday evening. Jean Lucas plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Kevin Volland is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
