Karpaty v Shaktar Donetsk predictions and betting tips
Ukrainian Premier League, Ukraine
total goals Under 2.5 2.40 Bet at B
Betting prediction was written by Dan Adair


Karpaty have had a real low profile start to the season. With the lowest goals in the division but strangely one of the best defences in the league outside the big teams they are keeping things very tight indeed. Just 12 goals in 8 games for an average of 1.5 goals per game shows how tight they are.

Shaktar Donetsk opened up with 6 straight victories in Ukraine Premier but in the last week they have crashed back to reality with a bump. Facing up to Dnipro and Metalist was a tough ask but Shaktar were held at home to Kharkiv before being hammered by a Roman Zozulya inspired Dnipro. Shaktar still sit in 2nd position only a point behind Kharkiv but they have showed they can be attacked and are not invincible. Key midfielder Dario Srna is suspended here and will be a big loss.


These sides have met 19 times and Karpaty have only 3 wins with 14 for Shaktar. The Donetsk men have won the last 5 on the spin scoring 14 and conceding just 3. After two tough matches where Shaktar struggled to impose themselves it’s a drop down in class here in Lviv.  All 8 of Karpaty games have gone Under 2.5 and although Shaktar are here and will take the game to them I am taking Under 2.5 here at 2.40 with bet365. I don’t expect Karpaty to score and can see them holding the visitors for long periods.
