Basel has already jumped over its head and for the team from Switzerland getting into this stage is already a success. After the failure in the Champions League, Shakhtar gained speed and is successfully playing everywhere. The Ukrainian Championship has already won and all forces are thrown into the Europa League.
Donetsk club showed the best performance, having shipped 80 goals to the opponents' goal. The best Donetsk tam’s players were Moraes (20 goals) and Marlos (13 goals).
The moles started their way in European competition in the Champions League, where they lost their place in the playoffs to Atalanta only in the last round, but bypassed Dynamo Zagreb. In the spring-summer part of the playoffs, Luis Castro's charges dealt with Benfica (5: 4 on aggregate) at the first stage and at the 1/8 finals they beat Wolfsburg in two duels with a difference of five months with a total by a score of 5:1.
Ismaily, Malyshev and Khocholava, who received a red card in the last game, will not be able to take part in today's game.
In the playoffs, the “red-blues” started with an easy victory over APOEL, which they won on aggregate with a score of 4:0 and in the 1/8 finals “RotBlau” unexpectedly repeated their success. With the same score they were knocked out dry draw for Eintracht Frankfurt (4:0 on aggregate).
In the Swiss Super League, Marcel Koller's charges won bronze medals. After 36 rounds, the team scored 18 victories and eight world victories, losing 14 points to the Young Boys. The team finished the championship with three peaceful outcomes in a row.
Zuffi, Omlin and Ramirez will not be able to take part in today's game.
In our opinion, Basel will try today to use their strong side and play as carefully as possible in defense. For the Pitmen, the option of opening a tight defensive line is a favorite exercise, so we expect a game under maximum tension.
We assume that the fate of the match will be decided by 1-2 goals, for which we propose to play a combined bet in favor of the Ukrainian team.
Our prediction is that Shakhtar will not lose + the total is less than 3.5 goals and we are betting on this via BC 1xBet with odds of 1.79
