Shakhtar Donetsk FC, after its recent success in duels against S.L. Benfica, will continue its European campaign in Germany. It is expected to play against WfL Wolfsburg, the seventh Bundesliga team at the moment.
The Germans have not lost since the end of January, but they have let some goals happen in almost every match. Considering the quality of the Miners’ attack during this season, there will be opportunities to score an important goal during the away match.
“A football game without fans lowers your expectations in the profession. Of course, we always want a full stadium. Fans are very important to the game. This is practically the same as in the theater when the actors are playing, but no one is in the audience, no one is looking at them. Yes, they are doing their job, but a very important component is missing," Luis Castro, Shakhtar’s head coach, stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine national football team will play against its Polish counterpart with empty stands.
"Poland vs Finland in Wroclaw and Poland vs Ukraine in Chorzow will be played without viewers. The games will be broadcasted via TV", the Secretary-General of the Polish Football Union wrote.
