After four rounds in UEFA Champions League’s group stage, Shakhtar Donetsk have been comfortable as runners-up in Group F. 

With Man City claiming victories in all four games and already being in the playoffs, all Shakhtar needs now is a draw – not necessarily the victory – over Napoli, to follw the British into the round of the last 16.

Napoli, on the other hand, will not be satisfied with the draw: a victory is their only chance to carry on in the League this season.

Group F

  1. Manchester City – 12 pts
  2. Shakhtar Donetsk – 9
  3. Napoli – 3
  4. Feyenoord – 0

After this game, the Mountaineers will face Man City at Metalist stadium in Kharkiv, which is why it’s best for Shakhtar to close books on the playoffs tonight.

‘Playing against Napoli will be tough, but we still can surprise them. It’s one of the best Italian teams and currently one of the best in Europe. They are doing great job,’ said Shakhtar’s manager Paulo Fonseca.
