Shakhtar Donetsk – Wolfsburg : Preview & Prediction
Shakthtar Donetsk is arguably the best Ukrainian club of the last decade. He has also won his championship every year since 2010, with the exception of 2015 and 2016 (9 in total), and has not finished other than champion or second since 1996. A constant therefore, and a club that we find every year in Europe, with for example a quarter of LdC in 2011. Eliminated in eighth last year, the club seems to have learned the lesson and won in Germany in the first leg (1-2) .
Sixth in the Bundesliga last year, Wolfsburg finished one place behind this year. In the Europa League, the Germans easily finished second in their group, ahead of Saint-Étienne and Oleksandria, and 1 small point behind the Belgians of La Gantoise. A serious campaign for a club used to Europe (including a quarterfinal in 2016), which eliminated Malmö in the round of 16 (wins 2-1 and 0-3).
Shakthtar Donetsk finished first in their home championship with 14 wins and 2 draws.
Donetsk has scored 46 goals and conceded 11 in 16 Danish league games at home. Which makes it the best attack as well as the best defense.
Wolfsburg finished 6th in the Bundesliga away with 9 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses.
Wolfsburg have scored 29 goals and conceded 23 in 17 away league games this season.
Defeated in the first leg, Wolfsburg should not create against a solid team, unbeaten at home and used to Europe. Victory for Shakthtar Donetsk!
