Shakhtar Donetsk FC is about to cross swords with TSG Hoffenheim. The teams will play the return leg on the UEFA Champions League fixture. The game is slated for Tuesday evening; it is to kick off at 10 p.m. Kyiv time.
Paulo Fonseca, the head coach of the Mountaineers took 20 players to Germany with him. Marlos and Yaroslav Rakytsky are injured and cannot join the game.
Previously, Shakhtar lost both legs to Manchester City, and thus it comes last in the group rankings. In order to get a slim chance to stay in the competition, the Ukrainian team needs a victory in the next games against Hoffenheim and Lyon. Otherwise, it will be over for Shakhtar in this season's Champions League.
