UCL 20/21 Predictions: Shakhtar Donetsk 1 – 2 Against Real Madrid
The pressure will certainly be on Zinedine Zidane in the UCL matchday 5 as Real Madrid continue to stumble throughout the 2020/21 campaign in all football competitions as they continue to produce poor performances that provide poor results. Their Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk could not, arguably, come at a worse time, however with the Spanish club up against the wall, now is the time for one of the most successful football teams in the UCL to finally get things going.

Surprisingly, the odds for Bayern Munich to win at the Wanda Metropolitano for the matchday 5 of the UCL 20/21 appear to be a little longer than they perhaps should be. Indeed, the Bundesliga champions have already progressed to the next stage of the UEFA Champions League 20/21, however, it would be unlike Hans-Dieter Flick to let his side take their foot off the gas. Of course, Atlético Madrid has everything to play for in this UCL game as their qualification hopes still remain in the balance, however, Bayern should still overpower them – not to the same extent as their 4-0 win in the first contest – with a 2-1 victory.
UCL 20/21 Predictions: Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain
