Shakhtar Donetsk to Kharkiv in the second leg 1/16 finals of League of Europe will take the Spanish “Salto”.
The first match in Vigo expected was challenging for Shakhtar after a long idle time, the Pitmen did not demonstrate the usual sparkling attacking football, but it was enough to get minimal advantage and update the record of Ukraine for the duration of the series of victories in the European Cup tournaments.
Victory in the first leg allow Shakhtar to build their game in their favorite counter-attacking manner. Home failure is forcing “Salto” actively seek the path to the gate of Andrei Pyatov, and this will ensure that the Pitmen plenty of space for a quick retaliatory attack attacks.
In Spain, Shakhtar lost one player from the starting lineup – Dentinho due to injury early gave place to the field to Victor Kovalenko. It is expected that in Kharkov from the first minute to the basis come fast Bernard. Returns the basis Taras Stepanenko, who missed the first match due to the extra suspension from UEFA. “Salty” will not play just moved yellow cards Nemanja Radoja.
Special today’s match could be for a number of Shakhtar players – taison, Marlos, Marcio Azevedo gave a lot of brilliant matches in the shirt of FC Metalist, and therefore in Kharkov, they are waiting for a special reception.
Shakhtar in this season’s Europa League at home is not only not lost any points, but did not concede a single goal. I want to believe that today this nice double trend will continue.
Shakhtar: Pyatov — Srna, Ordets, Rakitskiy, Ismaily, Fred, Stepanenko, Marlos, Taison, Bernard — Blanco Leshchuk
Celta: Alvarez, Mallo, Cabral, Roncaglia, Castro — Vass, Diaz, Hernandez — Yago ASPAs, Guidetti, Boronda
