Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk are doing very good in the Ukrainian Premier League where they don’t have decent opponent, demonstrating great football. “Hirnyky” deserved the second position in Group F of the UEFA Champions League, having gained 12 points in six tackles against Manchester City, Napoli and Feyenoord. “Kroty” looked rather tough in attack, having scored nine goals while their defense was lacking stability and experience which caused nine goals conceded. In the latest clashes conducted on the road Shakhtar Donetsk have smashed Vorskla Poltava and Karpaty with the same 3:0 scoreline, but failed 1:2 against FK Zorya Luhansk.
The first-leg game was finished with a tight 2:1 triumph of Shakhtar Donetsk over AS Roma while it is very difficult to predict the winner of the forthcoming encounter as the level of the teams is more or less the same, thus, the visitors have slightly better chances for promoting to the next round as they have one-goal advantage.
Prediction for the match: Shakhtar Donetsk to promote.
