The Shakhtar Donetsk team will challenge the Porto team in a 1e ronde Champions League in Volksparkstadion Stadium, Hamburg on Tuesday, September 19, 2023. For streaming coverage of Shakhtar Donetsk vs Porto, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto will face each other in Group H of the 2023/24 Champions League today. This match will take place at the Volksparkstadion, home of Hamburger who play in the German second division, because Shakhtar Donetsk cannot play at home due to the conflict with Russia. This is the fifth meeting between the two teams in this event, and Porto have never lost to Shakhtar Donetsk.
Shakhtar Donetsk is a team that has often played in the Champions League group stages, but they have never shown impressive achievements. They have only qualified for the round of 16 a few times, and rarely finished bottom of the group. Last season, they managed to finish third in the group with Real Madrid, and were then eliminated in the last 16 of the Europa League.
This season, Shakhtar Donetsk are in group H which looks easier, because only Barcelona is really superior, while Porto (Portugal) and Royal Antwerp (Belgium) are not too strong. Therefore, Patrick van Leeuwen’s team has the ambition to win one of the tickets to the round of 16. They have performed very well since the start of the 2023/24 season: unbeaten in the domestic league (winning 5 of 7 matches).
However, FC Porto also has good performance. After losing to Benfica in the Portuguese Super Cup, they are unbeaten in the last five matches in the domestic league (won 4, drew 1). Coach Sergio Conceicao and his team have also prepared well to face Shakhtar Donetsk. Last weekend, they played casually in the domestic league (resting some important players or replacing them early) and still won (1-0).
Don’t forget that last season, Porto managed to win the group in the Champions League (which included Atletico Madrid, Leverkusen and Club Brugge) and didn’t concede a single goal in three away games. They also made it to the quarter-finals before being defeated by Chelsea. Porto are an experienced and tough team in this event, and they want to continue their positive trend.
If you look at the history of meetings, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto have been in the same group as Porto twice in the Champions League, namely in the 2011/12 and 2014/15 seasons. The result was two draws and two defeats for Shakhtar Donetsk. Interestingly, Porto has a good record against teams from Ukraine. They won seven, drew four, and lost two of their 13 meetings
Based on all related information, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto are two teams that are quite evenly matched, but Porto is expected to take home the win from this match. The reason is that Shakhtar Donetsk cannot play at home and have to settle for neutral stadiums that may be less supportive of them, and Porto have a better record than Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, both overall and head-to-head.
