Madrid won big in reverse fixture

Real Madrid will be looking for another big win when they host Shakhtar on Wednesday evening.

In the reverse fixture Madrid won 5-0, which has put them level on points with the Group D leaders Sheriff Tiraspol. Carlo Ancelotti's team are behind the Moldovan club, having suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat against the minnows back in September.

Real Madrid won 2-1 at Elche at the weekend, with Vinicius Junior continuing his fine form as he scored both goals. The victory leaves Madrid in second place in La Liga, only a point behind the leaders Real Sociedad, but with a game in hand. This win followed a midweek 0-0 home draw with Osasuna, which was the third successive home game that Madrid had failed to win (D2 L1), which includes that loss to Sheriff.

Shakhtar were also beaten by Sheriff and only have one point to show so far, having claimed a 0-0 home draw with Inter. With Sheriff having claimed a surprising amount of points and Shakhtar facing away days at not just Real Madrid, but also Inter, even a third placed finish looks unlikely for the Ukrainians.

Back hosts to get job done early

Real Madrid are the 1.25 favourites, with the draw at 7.0 and Shakhtar at 15.0.

Despite their recent poor form at home, we have to expect Real Madrid to win this one. They have strong motivation, because if Inter can take at least a draw away at Sheriff, then Madrid can go top with a win.

Real Madrid's last four victories have all seen them ahead at the break and you can back them to win half-time/full-time at 1.77.
