Shakhtar Donetsk vs Wolfsburg, Europa League Match Prediction

Shakhtar Donetsk and Wolfsburg will be squaring off in the second leg of their Europa League last-16 fixture. 

Team Preview 

Oliver Glasner’s side makes their trip to Ukraine to play Shakhtar Donetsk in the Round of 16 fixture of Europa league. Wolfsburg had a poor show in Germany's top flight this year, finishing at 7th. The club notched up just four points from their last four matches in Bundesliga and they failed to qualify into the Champions League. 

Meanwhile, Shakhtar had dropped just four points after the resumption following the Corona outbreak. Luis Castro is full confident to catch a flight to the next round. Shakhtar had the last laugh by 2-1 in the previous meeting with Wolfsburg. The winner of this game will lock horns against either Basel or Eintracht Frankfurt.
