Shakhtar Donetsk faces Feyenoord in UEFA Champions League tonight; the Mountaineers will play the away game in Rotterdam in pursuit for another three points – and perhaps for the second place in the group.
Shakhtar currently leads the way in Ukraine’s Premier League; after Dynamo lost to Chornomorets in Odesa, the handicap between the two sworn adversaries made seven points. Interestingly, they face each other in the next round of the national championship.
1. Manchester City - 6 pts
2. Napoli - 3
3. Shakhtar - 3
4. Feyenoord - 0
Feyenoord badly needs this victory over Shakhtar; in the view of further games against more experienced opponents in this group, there is a small chance for this team to qualify for the playoffs.
