UEFA Champions League picks for Real Madrid vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the UEFA Champions League picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, he has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. He is 243-225-7 overall on his soccer picks in 2022, including an astounding 37-20-1 on Premier League predictions for a profit of more than $1,400 for $100 bettors.

For Real Madrid vs. Shakhtar Donetsk, Eimer is picking both teams to score for a -105 payout. The expert doesn't think Shakhtar has enough firepower to overtake Madrid for a victory, but sees this as being a high-octane match with both sides finding the back of the net.

Madrid is also getting a major boost on Wednesday with the return of Karim Benzema, who missed nearly a month of playing time with a thigh injury.

"The trio of Rodrygo, Vini Jr and Benzema is an unbeatable group that takes their time meticulously picking apart their opponents, and winning games in a cagey and difficult fashion to survive in," Eimer told SportsLine.
