Shakhtar Donetsk vs Bayern Munchen: Tips and prediction – 17.02.2015

By on February 17, 2015
Shakhtar Donetsk and Bayern Munchen will be face to face today from 19:45, UK time, in the first leg of the last 16 round in Uefa Champions League. There are no doubts about the team that starts with first chance.
Shakhtar Donetsk played eight friendlies in the past two months, without a competitive game. The home side ticked three wins, three draws and two defeats in this time and they don’t have the same strenght as in the last season. Lucescu’s team ticked only one victory in their last three home competitive games. Shakhtar will be without Taras Stepanenko, suspended,
Bayern Munchen will come here without Javi Martinez, Lahm, Alcantara and Ribery, while Xabi Alonso is in doubt, but anyway, he is announced in the starting eleven. Guardiola and his players are coming after an impressive game in Bundesliga, 8-0 at home against Hamburg and they surely want to get a good result here to have an easy second leg at the beggining of March.
Shakhtar vs Bayern probable lineups:
Shakhtar (4-2-3-1): Pyatov – Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Shevchuk – Fred, Fernando – Costa, Teixeira, Taison – Adriano.
Bayern (4-2-3-1): Neuer – Rafinha, Benatia, Boateng, Bernat – Alonso, Alaba – Robben, Muller, Gotze – Lewandovski.
