Shakhtar Donetsk is just one step away from the UEFA Champions League playoffs. The outcome of tonight’s guest game against KAA Gent may send them straight to the next stage of the competition. The Mountaineers won the fixture's first leg so they have better chances for ultimate victory.
Shakhtar has been on a hot streak for four consequent games in various tournaments; the team comes first in the Ukrainian Premier League now. But what’s even more delightful is that Shakhtar has been currently leading the way in the UEFA Champions’ League’s Group H (Shakhtar – 9 pts; Gent – 4; Braga – 2; Konyaspor – 1).
