UEFA Champions League selection for Celtic vs Shakhtar Donetsk

Before you jump into Wednesday’s game, you need to look at football insider Mike Goodman’s UEFA Champions League pick. As football editor at CBS Sports, Goodman is at the forefront of the advanced statistics and analysis movement in football and has eight years of experience working with cutting-edge predictive statistical analysis. His credits include work for FiveThirtyEight and StatsBomb and he has immense experience delving deep into the analytics involved in analyzing esports.

For Celtic vs Shakhtar Donetsk, Goodman backs Celtic to win at +122 on the moneyline. Celtic are conceding their first defeat but they won’t face a side as talented as Real Madrid on Wednesday. The Scottish club dominated domestically, beating their opponents 25-1 in six games. Meanwhile, Shakhtar needed a goal in the 90th minute to come away with a 2-1 win in their last league game against Chornomorets Odesa, a winless side in the Ukrainian Premier League.

The Scottish Premiership games scheduled for last weekend have been postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Thus, Celtic have seven days rest for this matchup while Shakhtar only has three days. Also, due to the ongoing war, Shakhtar have to play their home games in Poland instead of Ukraine, so they have to travel for that game and don’t have real home field advantage. With all these factors at work against Shakhtar, Goodman leads Celtic to victory.

“Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic team are exceptionally well trained and they are no strangers to playing in some of the most intense sporting environments in the world in Scotland,” Goodman told SportsLine. “Expect Celtic to survive an early storm but win the game in the second half thanks to superior fitness given Shakhtar’s difficult position.” Stream the match here now.
