The only previous meeting between Hoffenheim and Shakhtar Donetsk was the 2-2 draw in Ukraine earlier this season.

hoffenheim vs shakhtar-donetsk Tip Reason:

Hoffenheim have won only one of their six home games in all European competition (D2 L3), beating Istanbul Basaksehir in last season’s Europa League. Hoffenheim have both scored and conceded in all 12 of their games played in all European competition. No side has scored more 90th minute goals than Hoffenheim in the Champions League this season (2), while the German side have also scored the earliest goal in the competition this season (43 seconds vs Man City). Shakhtar are winless in their four Champions League games so far this season – only once (in 2011-12) have they failed to win any of their first five in a single campaign. Shakhtar haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 14 Champions League games, conceding a total of 30 goals in that run. Excluding own goals, Brazilian players have scored more Champions League goals than players from any other nation (860). Only Barcelona (83) have contributed a higher number of these than Shakhtar (78). Andrej Kramaric has been directly involved in 50% of Hoffenheim’s eight Champions League goals so far (3 goals, 1 assist). Junior Moraes has had a hand in three of Shakhtar’s four Champions League goals this season (2 goals, 1 assist).
