Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar hold onto lead?

Shakhtar Donetsk secured a valuable 2-1 win away from home in Germany against Wolfsburg in the 1st leg back in mid-March, and they now hold home advantage in Ukraine ahead of this decisive 2nd leg where the hosts will be looking to assert their European pedigree over their German visitors.

Wednesday’s hosts are usually a regular fixture in the Champions league and indeed, qualified for the elite European competition where they finished in 3rd place in a tough Group C which consisted of Manchester City, Atalanta and Dinamo Zagreb.

Shakhtar’s third place finish ensured another bite at the European cherry in the Europa League and although they’ve lost twice at home to Manchester City and a defeat to Atalanta, they’re unbeaten at home in their previous 11 matches in the Europa League in normal time which includes notable wins against Anderlecht, Gent and Benfica.

Our betting suggestion:

Wolfsburg Preview – Can Wolfsburg get a result in Ukraine?

Wolfsburg face a mountain to climb in Ukraine on Wednesday night as the German visitors not only lost their 1st leg at home 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk, but they also conceded two goals in the process, making this 2nd leg an extremely tough proposition.

The visitors will have been boosted by their recent turnaround in fortunes on the road though as they’ve bounced back from three defeats on the trot in the Bundesliga at Freiburg, Bayern Munich and Koln, to lose just one further away match from their subsequent nine matches in all competitions.

Wolfsburg also bring a nine-match unbeaten run on the road in the Europa League too into this 2nd leg which includes a 1-0 win at another Ukrainian club, Oleksandria, back in November last year, but Shakhtar Donetsk present a very different prospect here.
