We’re pretty surprised that you can get around 20/1 about Shakhtar Donetsk winning this season’s Europa League considering that they are one of the most formidable teams left in this season’s UEFA tournament.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The champions of Ukraine look as though they’re in the easier half of the 2020 Europa League draw and it’s our prediction that Shakhtar will overcome the challenge of Wolfsburg before heading to Germany to battle it out with Basel for a place in the last four of the competition.

We’re surprised to find such generous betting odds about Shakhtar winning this clash, with the team having won the Ukrainian top flight by an enormous 23 points, winning 26 of their 32 matches played during the course of the domestic season.

Luis Castro’s side began life in the Champions League this season although they only managed to finish third in the group stage. That said, it was Manchester City and Atalanta who pushed them down into the Europa League qualifying berth and both of these sides are still alive in the top European competition.

A 2-1 victory at the Volkswagen Arena on 12 March means that Shakhtar are heavily likely to go through and we’re backing them to claim a second leg victory over Wolfsburg in the Ukraine, with the visitors having finished seventh in the German Bundesliga this season.

While the Wolves are clearly involved in a much fiercer domestic league, the big problem was the home form which saw the team claim just four victories on home soil and they will have to hope that nine away wins on their travels can be the boost that they need.

A 2-0 victory would be enough for Wolfsburg to go through to the last eight although the defence looked pretty porous when being thrashed 4-0 by Bayern Munich in their final match, while they also conceded four goals against Borussia Monchengladbach towards the end of the campaign. Our tip is that the defence will be breached once again.
