Lyon will step on the pitch of NSC Olimpiysky to stand against Shakhtar Donetsk; it will be the UEFA Champions League's Round 6 fixture. The teams are to struggle for remaining slot in the competition's Round of the Last 16.

The Ukrainian team will be the nominal host, playing in Kyiv.

The game is to kick off at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Earlier, we reported that Shakhtar Donetsk and Olympique Lyonnais would play the Round 6 game of the group stage of UEFA Champions League at NSC Olimpiysky stadium in Kyiv, not in Kharkiv. The press service of the Ukrainian team posted that on Tuesday evening.

UEFA ruled to transfer the game's venue to Kyiv because of the martial law in Kharkiv region, where it was supposed to be played initially. Arena-Lviv was another option to host the match, but the football authority eventually chose NSC Olimpiysky

Whoever wins tonight's game will proceed to the next stage of UEFA Champions League.
