ARSENAL vs SHAKHTAR DONETSK LIVE & HIGHLIGHTS: Date: 19 October 2010, Time: 20:45 GMT Vanue: Emirates Stadium, London
Arenal have played two matches so far in the champions League and have scored 9 goals so far with only one goal coming against them in the group stages. Which makes them one of the most inform team in hte compitition and since they are playing at home it will be doubly hard for the visitors to come out of this match with anything. While Shakhtar are very solid at the back and havnt conceded any goal in the tw matches they played so far in the group. It will be the kind of match where they will sit back and let Arsenal come onto them and try to catch them on the break which is the tactic they used pretty successfully sofar in the compitition.
Predictions: Arsenal at home are very dangerous side and they showed on the weekend when they were 1-0 down but came back into the match and won it 2-1 on the day. So im predicting a easy win for Arsenal here with the scoreline of 3-1.
