Inter started this season's Champions League matches with poor results. Entertaining Real Madrid at home, Inter had to bear the shame after being beaten 0-1 by the Spanish giants. These results make the  Nerazzurri now occupy the third position in Group D standings with a collection of 0 points.

Meanwhile, Shakhtar also reaped poor results in the opening match of the Champions League this season. Facing the debutant team, FC Sheriff Tiraspol, Shakhtar was brought to their knees with a score of 0-2. The defeat made Shakhtar now sink at the bottom of the Group D standings with a score of 0 points.

Nevertheless, Inter and Shakhtar are now in good form ahead of this match. After the defeat in the opening match of the Champions League, both were recorded as unbeaten in the next 3 matches in the domestic league.

Inter were able to pick up successive 6-1 wins over Bologna and 3-1 over Fiorentina, as well as a 2-2 draw against Atalanta. Meanwhile, Shakhtar always win over Mariupol' 5-0, Dinamo Kiev 3-0, and Veres Rivne 4-1.

Inter and Shakhar itself actually also joined in the same group in the Champions League last season. Of the 2 group stage matches last season, all of them always ended in a goalless draw.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Inter Milan Prediction
If judging in terms of quality, Inter will of course be more favored over Shakhtar in this match.

However, Inter still has to be vigilant considering that last season they were always made trouble by Shakhtar.

Moreover, Inter are also being overshadowed by bitter memories last season where they did not make it to the knockout phase after finishing at the bottom of the group standings.
