Wolfsburg vs Shakhtar Donetsk Soccer Betting Tips
Round of 16 first leg of the Europa League on Thursday 12 March.
At the Wolkswagen Arena, Wolfsburg will host the Shakhtar for what should be one of the most beautiful – and one of the most indecisive – posters of this tour. Fallen from Benfica, transferred from the Champions League, during the sixteenth, the Donetsk club managed a small feat knowing that the Ukrainian championship had just reopened after a winter break of 2 months. The Ukrainians will not have been spared in the draw with Wolfsburg as an opponent, even if the German club is far from the level it has been able to reach in recent years.
After having beaten La Gantoise and eliminated Saint-Etienne or Oleksandriya, another Ukrainian club, in the group stage, the Wolves had Malmö as an opponent in the previous round. No real feat or insurmountable adversity so far, but that could change against the Shakhtar!
