UEFA Champions League picks for Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Barcelona

Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from betting expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups, and past performances to make the most informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. 

For Barcelona vs. Shakhtar Donetsk, Sutton is backing Under 3.5 goals at -125 odds. Barcelona are one of the most disciplined defensive teams in this competition and have yet to concede a goal in the Champions League through two games. Barcelona held FC Porto to just four shots on target in their 1-0 victory on the road and Xavi's men have recorded a shutout in three of their last four fixtures across all competitions.

In addition, Barcelona will be without a number of attacking options on Wednesday. Those set to miss the clash against Shakhtar Donetsk include star striker Robert Lewandowski, who's already racked up five goals and three assists in eight La Liga matches. Barcelona will also be without the services of Frenkie de Jong and Gavi, two of the world's most creative midfielders. With a match looming against Real Madrid on Saturday, Sutton expects Barcelona to maintain the majority of the possession and dictate the pace of play on Wednesday. Stream the game here.
