Shakhtar vs Wolfsburg Prediction 5 August 2020

Tournament: UEFA Europa League
Location: NSK Olimpijs’kyj
Match date: 05.08.2020 at 17:55

Shakhtar and Wolfsburg will face off in one of the matches of the 1/8 finals of the Europa League. Let me remind you that their first meeting ended with a 2: 1 score in favor of the Ukrainians. Let's try to find out who is going to make to the next stage.

Confident first place in the UPL - according to this scenario, Shakhtar spent the previous four years. Initially, the Pitmen got into the Champions League group, where they finished third in the group with Manchester City, Atalanta and Dinamo Zagreb. But in the Europa League, Castro's side in a beautiful style dealt with Benfica - 2: 1, 3: 3.

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, started in the current European Cup season with the UEL group stage. There, the Wolves did not experience any particular problems in the quartet with Ghent, Saint-Etienne and Alexandria, after which Malmo were defeated in the playoff round (2: 1, 3: 0). In the German championship, Glassner's wards performed at their usual level, finishing seventh.

Better class and one goal advantage are obvious factors in favor of Shakhtar's future success. However, I do not think that the Pitmen will leave their gates clean, as their defensive actions in European competitions are very far from ideal.
