Junior Moraes can play a pivotal role up top for Shakhtar Donetsk. Moraes has netted two goals and an assist from the last six appearances for his side.
Wout Weghorst can be the danger man for Wolfsburg. The centre-forward has registered 16 goals and three assists from 2741 minutes in the league this season.
Alan Patrick can play the anchor role in the midfield region for Shakhtar. Patrick has a goal, two assists and has a pass accuracy of 86% from the last six appearances.
Maximilian Arnold has impressed in the advanced role as well for Wolfsburg. The 26-year-old has four goals, eight assists and a pass accuracy of 81% from 2826 minutes in the league this season.
Shakhtar Donetsk are unbeaten in their last three games after being knocked out from the Champions League with two wins and a draw. With Shakhtar having scored two away goals, the tie is very much in their favour later tonight. Wolfsburg won just four off their last 10 games and haven’t been consistent so far. As a result of that, the today match prediction odds are in favour of Shakhtar to get the win by 2.70 as per bet365.
