RB Leipzig vs Shakhtar Donetsk Preview and Prediction

Must read

RB Leipzig will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 4-0 Bundesliga 1 losing effort in their last game against Eintracht Frankfurt.

In that match, RB Leipzig had 57% possession and 4 shots on goal with 0 on target. Eintracht Frankfurt had 14 attempts at goal with 9 on target.

Daichi Kamada (16′), Sebastian Rode (22′), Tuta (67′) and Rafael Santos Borré (84′) scored for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Matches with RB Leipzig have often been lively affairs recently with plenty of scoring being the norm. Over their past half dozen clashes, a total of 23 goals have flown in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 14 of those accredited to RB Leipzig.

Shakhtar Donetsk will come into the meeting after a 0-1 Premier League win in the defeat of Rukh Lviv in their last outing.

The only player to score from Shakhtar Donetsk was Yukhym Konoplya (79′).

A succession of reliable performances by the Shakhtar Donetsk defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 3 from their last 6 fixtures in total.

During the same period of time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 11. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, though.

This match will be played on 06/09/2022 at 20:00

Prediction: Home Win.
