Champions League

Barcelona vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Barcelona has a difficult match ahead in these quarterfinals of Champions league. They will face one of the underdogs of the tournament, Shakhtar Donetsk. Manager Guardiola seems a bit paranoid lately about this match saying that he has a bad feeling about his rival. It’s probably the memory of Shakhtar shocking them at home by 2-3 result two years ago at Camp Nou. And the great struggle to win away by 1-2 at Donetsk that same season. Also in the European Supercup, Shaktar held them to extra time but a goal by Pedro before the penalties gave Barça the title. This is different though because when Barça lost, they were leading the group by a lot of points. Now in knockout stage they will face an even better version of the Ukrainian team full of talented Brazilians. The good news is that manager Guardiola recovers striker Pedro after a 3 week injury. If he is really recovered, we shall see a big boost in Barcelona’s offense. The problem is that lately they haven’t been too brilliant, not even Messi, who has been goal-less since that Arsenal second leg match. Also Villa has been goal-less for his club since six league matches ago against Mallorca. I think the return of Pedro will make both play better. They will also miss defenders Puyol and Abidal, this means that the center of defense will be formed by Piqué and Busquets (let’s not forget that it’s not his usual position even though he has performed well so far). So basically, we will see the best eleven on the field with exception of Busquets who will be in center of defense and Mascherano replacing him as defensive midfielder.

Shakhtar Donetsk is an amazing team that plays very offensively. One amazing stat is that they have won 9 out of their last 10 Champions League matches scoring 26 goals in total. Also they have such talent in the attack that they are the team who has scored most goals from outside the penalty area in this tournament. Their strength definitely lies in the offence but their defense is not as good and for example against Arsenal away they were beaten 5-1. Still, it’s understandable the worries of Guardiola when you see that Shakhtar managed to easily eliminate Roma with a 2-3 away and later 3-0 at home(making it a staggering 6-2 on aggregate). Their manager has already said that they will not sacrifice their attacking style for this match and that is why I believe this could be an open match.

Barcelona are not at their best at the moment but I think that recovering a usual starting player is always a boost for any team and probably Pedro will make things work better for home team. Shakhtar has already said they won’t defend and will try to score a goal with the fast talented Brazilians they have, probably motivated by that 2-3 victory in this venue long ago. In any case, I think that the chances of this match going over 3. 00 goals are high enough to take a shot at it. In my opinion, one of two things are more likely to happen: 1)Barcelona destroys Shakhtar with an incredible football or 2)Barcelona struggles to win this by a high scoring game more like a 2-1 style of result(or even a draw.. who knows).

Therefore my recommendation for tonight will be OVER 3. 00 GOALS @ 2. 02
