The transfer window passed quietly at Bernabeu as Real did not sign any player but sold and loaned out some of them. Oscar was sold to Sevilla, Achraf Hakimi was sold to Inter, James went to Everton, Bale was loaned out and Regulion sold both to Tottenham. The team of Real Madrid still looks solid and there is no doubt that they are the firm favourite for winning this game.
Shakhtar Donetsk has started the current season unconvincingly with 3 draws and 3 wins in the domestic league. The team smashed Lviv 5-1 in the last game but there is still a gap to the leading position. Shakhtar looks as they are cursed against Real Madrid but considering their European experience, as if they could cause some problems to the hosts.
