Shakhtar had amazing season so far, they reached Europa league knockout stage after great performances in group stage where collected maximum number of points, in first leg of 1/16 finals managed to defeat Spanish Celta Vigo away from home and now in rematch i have no doubts that will manage to achieve another positive outcome and reach 1/8 finals. It wasn't easy and they for sure won't underestimate guests but should be able to celebrate and extend their great run. In domestic league they are at leading position and are without defeat so far, also are most effective team there, in this campaign they were defeated only two times, in Champions league qualifications by Young Boys and in Ukrainian Super Cup by Dynamo Kiev. It seems that this will be a really good season for them if manage to continue in same manner, in last season they reached Europa league semi finals where were eliminated by Sevilla which later won the title, i believe that will manage to at least repeat that, they are well known for their good games in Europa league and now are clear favorites to win this match and reach next round. They have no bigger issues with injuries and only midfielder Dentinho (18/4) and forward Facundo Ferreyra (11/8) are in doubt due to a slight injury issues.

Celta Vigo meanwhile are now coming to this game after convincing victory in previous round of Spanish La Liga over Osasuna, they celebrated with convincing result and managed to get back on the tracks after three consecutive defeats, here must show some really great skills to celebrate with two goals margin and win their progress into next round. They ended group stage at second spot in group G and were decent there but now are in very difficult position, they failed to achieve positive result and avoid defeat at home and now on this trip will be only harder. They are team which play good offensive football but defense wasn't so great and here i simple don't believe that will manage to confront to experienced side which are in really amazing shape. Guests had decent season but must show some improving in order to reach higher spots in Spanish league and fight for Europe while here are having almost impossible task to celebrate over really strong team with two goals difference and reach 1/8 finals. Guests had some crisis in their game and tonight must show really great performances but still i doubt that will manage to overcome very strong hosts. Midfielders Nemanja Radoja (20/1) and forward Andrew Hjulsager (1/0) will remain sidelined for this match while forwards John Guidetti (14/3) and Theo Bogonda (19/1) are having problems with injuries and their appearances are in doubt.

Shakhtar are playing really great football in this season, it wasn't easy to defeat Celta in Spain but in the end they achieved narrow victory and now must play on high level to repeat that, guests aren't without chances for sure but still i believe that Shakhtar will win this game and win their progress into next round.
