  • Second leg of 3rd Round Champions League qualifier set at NSK Olimpijs'kyj Kyiv on Tuesday night (18:30 BST)

The Ukrainians fought back from a half-time deficit to win in Belgium and are 21/20 to win and both teams to score or 15/2 to concede the first goal and come out on top, while Genk HT/Shakhtar FT is available at 20/1.

Shakhtar, who finished 11 points behind champions Dinamo Kiev last season, fielded seven Brazilian players in their starting line-up in Belgium and six were born in the South American country for Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Oleksandria.

Genk got their first win of the season at the third attempt at the weekend and with all four matches having involved goals at both ends this season we go 4/7 on both teams to score.

Interestingly, Genk’s last three matches have involved one team winning from behind and they can be backed at 16/1 to achieve that, or it’s 5/4 on both teams to score, over 2.5 goals in the match and either team to win.

Verdict

Shakhtar Donetsk won the first leg and we expect them to do the same in the return leg and progress to the Champions League play-off round.
