Shakhtar Donetsk as usual still represents Ukraine at the top continental tournaments at the club level. Although they always have to attend the preliminary rounds. 

The fact that Shakhtar Donetsk is almost always present in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. It shows that they always handle the matches in the outer round well. That is still true in the 2021/22 season when Shakhtar Donetsk went straight to the final qualifying round after easily overcoming Genk. Taking the advantage after the first leg against AS Monaco.

Monaco Overview

Over/Under Bet – Shakhtar Donetsk vs Monaco prediction

Monaco did not have much difficulty passing the 3rd qualifying round when only having to meet a light opponent Sparta Praha. However, Kovac’s men are starting League 1 extremely badly, the first 3 rounds only got 1 point and 1 goal only. 

No one recognizes an attractive attacking Monaco, instead, it is a deadlocked game to the extreme. It is evident in the last 3 matches that the strikers were completely empty. Resulting in 3 consecutive defeats against Lens, Lorient, and Shakhtar Donetsk in the first leg. The head-to-head record is also very poor, Monaco lost both times in the past without scoring a goal.
