INTER MILAN V SHAKHTAR DONETSK – Click here to bet
Inter beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in a one legged Quarter-Final to book their spot in the last 4. They had previously beaten Getafe 2-0 and in the last 32 saw off Ludogorets 4-1 on aggregate. Inter are now undefeated in their last 9 matches winning their last 5 in all competitions.
Shakhtar Donetsk was too strong for Basel in their Quarter-Final winning 4-1 and they had previously seen off Wolfsburg 5-1 on aggregate and in the Round of 32 it was Benfica who came short against them with Shakhtar winning 5-4 on aggregate. All 5 of Shakhtar’s play off matches have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers. In Shakhtar’s last 15 games in all competitions they have won 13 and drawn 2.
These sides haven’t met for many years, in fact as far back as the 2005 Champions League so there is no relevant head-to-head form to go on.
Inter Milan 7/10
Shakhtar Donetsk 69/20
Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 29/20.
Shakhtar Donetsk are sharp in front of goal and tend to get on the score sheet, but at the same time they can be a bit weak at the back and this is something I expect Inter to exploit. Inter are worthy favourites here, but I prefer the price that we get 4 goals or more in the game.
