Shakhtar and Inter will face off again in a head-to-head confrontation, but this time in the Champions League group stage match. How will the match on October 27, 2020 in Kiev turn out? – our forecast will give the answer.
The champion of Ukraine became the author of the main sensation of the first round of the Champions League at the group stage. Without a number of key players, the Pitmen beat Real Madrid (3: 2), breaking the Madrid defense three times before the break.
The match in Spain took away a lot of physical and emotional strength from Luis Castro’s charges . Fatigue affected the team’s play in the UPL match against Vorskla, which ended in a 1: 1 draw. Out of the game, the hosts have defender Ismaily, winger Yevgeniy Konoplyanka and striker Junior Moraes.
Inter once again had a bad start in the Champions League. Antonio Conte’s team ran into problems when hosting Borussia Mönchengladbach. Having conceded twice in the second half, the Nerazzurri found themselves in the role of catch-up, but the second goal from Romelu Lukaku ensured a draw.
The Belgian striker once again delighted Inter fans in the last round of Serie A. His goal contributed to the victory of Inter over Genoa (2: 0). Alexis Sanchez is in the guests’ infirmary. The participation in the upcoming match of Ashley Young is in question.

The recent meeting of opponents in the semifinals of the Europa League ended with a crushing victory for Inter with a score of 5: 0. Surely the Pitmen’s coaching staff made the appropriate conclusions after that match, but the hosts will not be able to beat the opponent without attacking.
Inter’s attack is based on effective action by Lukaku, who is in excellent shape. But the defense of the Milan team is now not without misfires. We expect a productive match in the capital of Ukraine.
Our prediction is that the total goals are 2.5 more with the odds of 1.60 in the bookmaker’s office 1xBet.
