Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Volkswagen Arena when Wolfsburg and Shakhtar Donetsk face each other in the first leg of the Europa League last 16. The Wolves are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground in the Europa League, but Shakhtar Donetsk, who eliminate Benfica in the previous round, are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than Saint-Etienne and Malmo.
Anyhow, we predict that the Germans will grab something from Thursday’s football match as they are tough to beat at home. The Ukrainians, aim to go all the way in the Europa League this term, but, no doubt, they would be happy with a draw this time out. A close encounter is on the cards at Volkswagen Arena, and we predict that the two sides are going to share the spoils in their first ever meeting in European competitions.
