UEFA Champions League | Shakhtar Donetsk VS Barcelona; Wednesday, 08 November at 01:45 GMT +8

Shakhtar Donetsk will face Barcelona in Group H of the UEFA Champions League. They are currently third in the group. Shakhtar has managed three points so far, drawing from a 3-2 win over Antwerp. They have also suffered a 2-1 away loss at Barcelona two weeks ago and are looking to avoid a repeat. They started their match with a 1-0 win over Dynamo Kiev, their second consecutive win since losing to Barcelona in Spain. They have only returned one win in their last eight matches in the Champions League. They have also not scored more than a goal in seven home matches.

Barcelona secured their place in the next stage with just a point after three wins in three games, allowing them to advance from the group stage for the first time in three seasons.
