Donetsk team will play in Manchester, where it has not been able to score points so far.

British are confidently taking the first place, but Shakhtar will be fighting against Zagreb's Dinamo for the second place.

Miners have now got in great shape. And although a number of injuries will prevent some top players from securing the victory (for example - Taison will not be able to participate), Miners' mood should be combative. Shakhtar’s players are confident in their abilities before the match and they are going to continue gaining points in the tournament.

Over the weekend, both teams played in national championships. In England, Manchester City FC hosted Chelsea. The match turned out to be saturated, and it was Man City that secured the victory. Shakhtar did not need to show its temper in order to get the victory at the weekend - Karpaty Lviv was defeated with a score of 4:1.

Manchester City and Shakhtar will meet for the sixth time. Only once the Miners were able to beat Manchester City in 2017. In all other matches, Donetsk was not even able to score a goal.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine’s national football team is expected to face the Netherlands. Even though teams ended up in different pots, their paths will cross in the competition's finals.
