Match preview

Will Real Madrid pull further clear at the top of Group F?

So far, as they bid to defend their title, los Blancos have won both games in this competition, 3-0 at Celtic Park and then 2-0 against RB Leipzig.

In the latter, they left it late, but goals from Fede Valverde and then Marco Asensio secured the points.

Overall, Carlo Ancelotti’s had won every game this season, including lifting the UEFA Super Cup in August, until this 100% start came to an end on Sunday night.

Despite taking the lead through Vinícius Júnior, ten-man Osasuna held on for a 1-1 draw in the Spanish Capital.

Will los Merengues get back to winning ways?

Shakhtar Donetsk meantime currently sit second in this group, thanks largely to their 4-1 victory at Red Bull Arena on matchday one.

Marian Shved with a brace in that shock victory over the Bundesliga side.

Eight nights later, Mykhaylo Mudryk’s equaliser helped the Miners hold Celtic to a 1-1 draw at their temporary home in Warsaw.

Given the ongoing war in Ukraine, most expected Igor Jovićević's team to really struggle at this level.

On the contrary, Shakhtar have been the best of the rest so far, aiming to reach the knockout phase for the first time since 2017/18.

Two seasons ago, Shakhtar beat Real Madrid both home and away, winning 3-2 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano and 2-0 in Kyiv.

However, last season, the two met again, with los Blancos prevailing both times, 5-0 and then 2-1.

Will this one go the same way at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu?
