Team News

Shakhtar
Barcelona
  • Yukhym Konoplya is suspended owing to an accumulation of bookings.
  • Giorgi Gocholeishvili is expected to deputise at right-back for the home side, who have no further injury concerns.
  • Sergi Roberto misses out, while Frenkie de Jong is a doubt owing to a sprained ankle.
  • Gavi returns from a ban and is set to start in midfield here.

Prediction

  • Shakhtar Donetsk will feel confident of running Barcelona close here having fallen to a narrow 2-1 loss last month. The Ukrainian side followed up that defeat with back-to-back wins.
  • Barcelona responded to their disappointing 2-1 Clasico defeat to Real Madrid with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Real Sociedad on Saturday night. The Blaugrana currently top Group H having won all three Champions League games.
  • This one won't be easy for Barcelona but they should have what it takes to secure all the spoils on Tuesday.
