Shakhtar Donetsk hosts Wolfsburg in the second leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals. The match will be played on Wednesday, July 5th at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium (Kiev)
The hosts won the first away match with a score of 1:2, having created a solid foundation for their final success. Now the visitors will have to throw all their forces forward, and the Miners' technical attacking line, which consists mainly of ethnic Brazilians, will catch them on counterattacks. Shakhtar scored 80 goals in 32 games of the finished Ukrainian championship. And the team often had to breach the “buses”, but now it will be easy to find open zones in the opponent's penalty area!

Wolfsburg is in a very unpleasant situation because it needs to score at least twice. I have no doubt that the Wolves will rush into the attack from the very first minutes. By the way, they have a very strong attacking line. For example, they have the striker Weghorst, who became the fourth Bundesliga scorer at the end of the season. At the end of the championship, he showed excellent statistics and scored five goals in five matches. In general, Wolfsburg has many high-class football players who are able to “solve” the episode.
Both teams are associated primarily with attacking football. Therefore, I expect a bright double-edged game with an abundance of goals scored. The situation after the first match also hints at this. Wolfsburg will be forced to attack throughout the game and will probably achieve its goal at least once, and Shakhtar will most likely catch the visitors in a counterattack at least once because they will care about defense last. “Both teams to score – yes” took place in the first game of this confrontation, and I think that the situation will repeat itself.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
