an eye on Real Madrid-Shakhtar

the return of the UEFA Champions League brings with him the last minute race to qualify. An ex from Dépor is in this situation. In group F, with Real Madrid, Shakhtar or Celtic, there is Hugo Novoa’s RB Leipzig. The local team of Herculino has not reached any point so far and will have to beat Celtic to reverse the bad start. Furthermore, with 4 points less than the Ukrainians, they will have to keep an eye on the Santiago Bernabéu.

It is the year of the World Cup or, what is the same, a path with a completely compressed calendar. For this reason, despite being October 5th, many teams are risking their lives in the top continental competition. For some the appointment of the third day is already heads or tails, as could be the case of Sevilla FC.

RB Leipzig also finds itself in this situation, in which one of the last great jewels escaped from Abegondo plays. An extra brain in the flight experienced in recent years in the Coruña team. Well, the German team, after two games, only suffered defeats against Shakhtar and Real Madrid. This Wednesday will host historic Glasgow Celtic. A duel in which even the Scots are forced to win. Ending the third day without a win would be catastrophic for the options of both, who should start thinking more about UEFA Europa League. With the economic repercussions that this would entail.

An eye on Real Madrid – Shakhtar

From Germany they will not lose sight of what happens at the Santiago Bernabéu. And is that both teams need Real Madrid to win the game. Reach round two with as little difference as possible. Shakhtar Donetsk is currently second with four points. If at the Bernabéu he manages to score, which does not seem to be within Celtic’s reach, and Leipzig no longer have it, he could make a difference in a small group. Therefore, in addition to aiming for victory, they will have to be aware of what is happening in the Spanish capital.
