Shakhtar Donetsk vs Basel, Europa League: predictions

The AufSchalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen will be the scene of this Europa League quarter-final in which goals should not be lacking.

Shakhtar Donetsk dominated the 2019-2020 edition of the Ukrainian Premier League and won the thirteenth national title in their history, the fourth in a row. After the separation from Paulo Fonseca, who moved to the Roma bench last summer, the Donetsk club has focused on Luis Castro and has been able to continue an already long series of successes.

Basel has just finished the top Swiss championship in third place, behind the Young Boys of Bern – capable of triumphing at home for the third consecutive time – and of St. Gallen. Furthermore, the team led on the bench by Marcel Koller is still in the running for the conquest of the Swiss Cup, a competition that has not yet finished and is entering its decisive phases.

Shakhtar is likely to claim their superior technical rate, exhibited for the umpteenth time a few days ago, when they won 3-0 over Wolfsburg, emerging at a distance and unleashing the moment they had the opportunity to dispose of numerous spaces.

Both teams are struggling with a disqualification in defense: Davit Khocholava will be absent in Shakhtar, while Eray Comert will not be able to be part of the Basel team, also forced to deal with the not optimal conditions of goalkeeper Jonas Omlin, as well as midfielders Ramires and Luca Zuffi.
The prediction

There is a good chance that both teams will score. The overall goals will likely be at least three. A Shakhtar Donetsk victory is likely.
