Shakhtar Donetsk: The Ukrainian powerhouse is returning to Europa League action with a ton of momentum thanks to a five-match unbeaten run. They will be short a key player in Ismaily who is out with a knee injury, and will likely look for others to step up and have an impact, so watch for Brazilian midfielder Tete in this match. The team is coming off winning the Ukranian Premier League for the fourth consecutive season, and is looking to continue their undefeated streak since their return play against an injured Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg: The team finds itself on the bad end of a long injury list ahead of this match with several players unavailable, including two outsides backs in William and Paulo Otavio. Right winger Renato Steffen is also suspended. American fans have eyes on John Brooks as a player to watch, as the German side tries to continue its Europa League journey. The squad is facing a huge obstacle with so many key players unavailable, but is no strangers to Europa League knockout round scenarios, as it has advanced twice to the Europa League quarters.
Shakhtar Donetsk is without a key player, but it will find a way to build through on goal. Pick: Shakhtar Donetsk 2, Wolfsburg 1
