Shakhtar vs Napoli by Rahul

Shakhtar Donetsk come into his encounter with some some great form behind them winning 6 straight games and 7 out of 8 to start the season as the top team in the Ukrainian Premier League.  Donetsk's early season form has seen them net 17 goals in 8 games played led by players like Marlos (4 goals), Ferreyra (3 goals) and Bernard & Krivtsov (2 goals each). With the goal scoring love spread all across the table; it leaves an opportunity for the team to score from anywhere on the pitch, making them a deadly team in this competition. Shakhtar will look at their poor Champions League record in recent years as a watch out for them; but they have the ability to find the back of the net against any opposition. Their current winning form will give them something positive to think about but the challenge is defensively where they have now leaked goals in 6 out of their last 7 games in all competitions. 


Napoli come into this game exactly where they left off last season, hammering goals having scored 13 goals in 5 games played so far this season; which will give them a lot of confidence heading into this encounter. Their speed in the counter attack has been extremely instrumental in them scoring hatful of goals with players like Callejon, Insigne, Mertens, Milik, Zielinski, Hamsik who will take up 4 of the attacking spots in this team against Shakhtar tonight. Napoli played well in the Champions League last season until they ran into eventual winners Real Madrid. Napoli's struggles still continue to be defending away from home as they conceded in all 4 of their away games last season in the Champions League. 


This game should be an entertaining one as they have been in all Napoli's games since last year. Napoli this season have seen their 3 league games go over 2.5 goals while Shakhtar have seen 6 out of 8 go over 2.5 goals, and that is my pick for this game; Over 2.5 goals between Napoli and Shakhtar Donetsk.
