This is one of those games where a draw will please both teams. But, president of Chelsea Roman Abramovich and president of Shakhtar Rinat Akhmetov are big friends, so the Miners could play for three points and give a chance to the Blues. But it is a kind of humour.
Luiz Adriano is banned for the hosts after his wicked and unfair-play goal against Nordsjaelland on matchday five. He can be replaced by ex-Arsenal forward Eduardo. Dmytro Chygrynskiy and Tomas Hubschmann have thigh problems. Olexandr Kucher will miss Shakhtar’s next game in the Champions League, if he receives another yellow card.
Claudio Marchisio will have to watch this game from the stands, cause of a third booking in Europe. Giorgio Chiellini will miss the Bianconeri’s next match if he will be booked.
