Monaco have it all to do on Wednesday after losing 1-0 to the Ukrainians at Stade Louis II in the first leg.

The Principality club have reserved their best form for Europe so far this term, seeing off Sparta Prague 5-1 in the third qualifying round of the Champions League.

Niko Kovac watched his side lack a clinical edge, just as they have done in Ligue 1 thus far, with much of their first-leg woes down to Donetsk goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin, who made a string of fine saves.

That was their fifth competitive outing in 14 days so fatigue may have played a part.

Monaco are 7/5 to win the second leg after falling to Pedrinho’s 19th-minute strike in the first leg.

Shakhtar are 2/1 to win at the Metalist Stadium and the draw is available at 12/5 in the Champions League betting tips.

Monaco have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five competitive games after their 2-0 home defeat by Lens on Saturday and it is 11/5 they reverse that trend.

Verdict

We are tipping a safe bet of both teams to score in the second leg.
