🗞️ Team News: Shakhtar Donetsk

Maksym Malyshev (Knee Surgery), Vyacheslav Tankovskyi (Fracture-dislocation of the ankle), Vladyslav Vakula (Shoulder Injury) and Ismaily (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) aren’t available for Shakhtar manager Luís Castro.

It’s our opinion that Hirnyky could line up in a 4-2-3-1 system for the game, utilising Andriy Pyatov, Sergey Krivtsov, Mykola Matvienko, Valerii Bondar, Dodo Cordeiro, Taras Stepanenko, Marcos Antônio, Taison, Alan Patrick, Romero Bonfim Marlos and Junior Moraes.

ℹ️ Team News: VfL Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg boss Oliver Glasner has some current player fitness concerns. Paulo Otávio (Ankle Injury), Kevin Mbabu (Corona virus), William (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Ignacio Camacho (Ankle problems) miss out here.

It’s our belief that Wolfsburg could decide to make use of a 4-2-3-1 formation, settling for Koen Casteels, Marcel Tisserand, John Anthony Brooks, Marin Pongračić, Jerome Roussillon, Maximilian Arnold, Yannick Gerhardt, Wouter Weghorst, Xaver Schlager, Josip Brekalo and Daniel Ginczek.

💡 Prediction

VfL Wolfsburg could find themselves struggling to put one past this Shakhtar Donetsk outfit who should end up scoring and staying ahead.

We’re therefore tipping a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning score for Shakhtar Donetsk when all is said and done.

Let’s see.
