Bayern Munich v Shakhtar Donetsk Preview, Champions League, Wednesday 11th March 2015.

German side Bayern Munich will need to be on their usual top form tomorrow night when they welcome Shakhtar Donetsk to The Allianz Arena as they certainly didn’t play to their usual abilities when playing away from home. The game ended goalless which would of been a great result for Shakhtar, and if the Bundesliga Champions are not careful could walk away with a cheeky win.  In the Bundesliga we can see Bayern Munich are still very much dominating and now sit eleven points above closest challengers Wolfsburg. In their last five games in all competitions we have seen the German side win four and draw once, which was the first leg of this knock-out stage.

Ukraine side Shakhtar Donetsk played very well when welcoming Bayern Munich to their ground back in February as they managed a goalless draw against such a dominant side. They will be hoping for a little miracle come Wednesday night when the two meet as beating the Germans on their home turf will certainly not be an easy task. Shakhtar Donetsk managed to almost scrape through in the group stages after coming in second place, and it was down to the poor performances of one of the favourites Athletic Bilbao who managed to drop far too many points in the earlier stages. Lets not take too much away from them though as the two games they did win they had managed to score twelve goals and concede zero.

Bayern Munich Team News:

So far for Bayern Munich the clubs top scorer in domestic competitions is Dutch wide man Arjen Robben who has scored on seventeen occasions so far. He has also scored twice in the Champions League taking him to a total of nineteen. The club haven’t had any prolific goalscorers in the Champions League so far, with the likes of Gotze and Thomas Muller leading the line with three goals each.

Shakhtar Donetsk Team News:

Local player Aleksandr Gladkiy is one of the clubs top scorers and has scorers eleven goals domestically, yet has failed to light up the stage in the Champions League having only played just over ninety minutes. In Europe the clubs top scorer is Brazilian attacker Luiz Adriano who has netted on nine occasions. He has also scored six times in the league and cup fixtures making him the clubs top scorer.

Bayern Munich v Shakhtar Donetsk Head to Head Statistics

With the two clubs having only played each other on one occasions there is not much to report when looking at the head to head statistics. However you would have to say Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk have had the better result earning a draw against a side such as Bayern Munich who do pretty much dominate when it comes to Europe in recent years.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

With only the one game being played in the recent past there is not much to go on when looking at a goals per game average. Especially as the only game played ended goalless which is going to give us the poor average of zero goals per game. Something I would very much not count on when looking forward to Wednesday nights game.

Bayern Munich v Shakhtar Donetsk Form (Left to Right)

Bayern Munich: W W W W D

Shakhtar Donetsk: D W W D W

Both sides are in great form right now when it comes to domestic competitions. In terms of Europe you would easily say Bundesliga side Bayern Munich are a few paces above Shakhtar Donetsk when it comes down to form and talent. Anyway overall the best form would go to Bayern Munich who have that extra win over their opponents here.

Bayern Munich v Shakhtar Donetsk Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Champions League knock-out action on Wednesday night comes to us live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition, and features Bundesliga side Bayern Munich verses one of Ukraine’s top teams, Shakhtar Donetsk. It will be a must win for both sides however small it is on Wednesday, yet it will more likely be a winning effort by favourites Bayern Munich who are now at home for the second leg. The first leg somehow ended goalless which would of been a good result by the home side who were no doubt hoping not to be on the receiving end of a battering.

Both sides are in good form coming into this fixture yet we would expect the Germans to pull through with ease having looked at the talent in their side. Shakhtar Donetsk are not out of the competition yet and I can imagine a few bets being placed on the cheeky 1 – 0  away win in hopes of it coming in. Bayern Munich are as usual the clear dominant side with them sitting comfortably atop the Bundesliga and also winning the group stages in convincing style.

My predictions for Wednesday nights game do of course back the German Champions all the way, as I do not seriously imagine Shakhtar Donetsk causing too many issues. So for the first prediction I am planing to take on a correct scoreline guess of Bayern Munich to win 3 – 1 on the night. The next I am going to take is for Bayern Munich to win the game by a two goal margin,
