Shakhtar Donetsk v Atalanta Team News

The hosts, having won only one group stage game, will come into this match a very determined side as this is equivalent to their Champions League final game. As they seek to join English champions Manchester City in the knockout stages, the team should earn maximum points from this fixture in order to proceed, disregarding how the other group fixture will turn out.

Luis Castro will therefore have a daunting task in organizing and fielding a side that will produce the much-deserved performance that will see them through. The side is winless in their last five Champions League outings at home and will, therefore, be looking to make amends for that in this fixture on home soil.

The visitors on the other hand have endured one of their most disappointing performances this season both in their domestic league as well as in the Champions League.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side has registered only one win their group games, losing three and drawing one in the process. The abysmal performance has only earned them four points in their group and they will therefore make the trip to Ukraine to play for their pride and fans. A win for the Italian side will condemn their hosts to a harsh Champions League exit.

They will however be without the services of their most potent attacker, Duvan Zapata, and will therefore need to look for goal scoring insiparion elsewhere.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Shakhtar Donetsk will be a very fortunate team going into this clash as they are injury and suspension free. Luis Castro should therefore field a very potent team capable of seeing this through.

Atalanta will be the unfortunate side of the two as they will be without their Colombian marksman and goal machine, Duvan Zapata, who is out with a thigh injury. Their go-to midfielder, J. Ilicic is also doubtful with a muscle injury.
