SHAKHTAR DONETSK - CELTIC
OK their record on the road has improved a little, but Celtic at home and Celtic away in Europe, are two very different teams. Now they make the long trip to the Ukraine to face a Donetsk side that spent a fortune in the summer, including 40m euros on Iisinho, Lucarelli and Castillo. Strong at home and unbeaten domestically, with a 8-1-0 record this season, Celtic will have some idea of what to expect having lost 3-0 here in 2004. The home side are much better now,
6.5 points Shakhtar -1/4 ball 1.75 asian line
PORTO - LIVERPOOL
Porto are very strong at home and have lost just 3 times in some 40 starts, they also boast an excellent record against English sides . This is likely to be very tight and Liverpool would no doubt, settle for a point right here and now. They will be without Sissoko and Riise and given the international break and the Portsmouth game, have had very little preparation time for this game. Porto are 100% this season and should be capable of taking a point.
5 points Porto +1/2 ball 1.70 asian line
