Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen will host the Europa League quarter-final between Shakhtar Donetsk and Basel. The Ukrainians rolled over Wolfsburg 5-1 on aggregate in the last 16, and it should come as no surprise they are seen as favourites to win Tuesday’s football match. The Miners are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, but you should keep in mind that defender Davit Khocholava misses the game through suspension.
The RotBlau, on the other hand, failed to put an end to Young Boys’ dominance in the Swiss Super League, and, no doubt, they will be looking to save the season by going all the way in the Europa League. When the two teams met in the Champions League back in 2008, Shakhtar Donetsk rolled over Basel 5-0 and 2-1, and seeing that tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the nominal visitors, we will put our money on the Ukrainian champions.
