Shakhtar Donetsk v Borussia Dortmund Football Match – 13.02.2013 – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Tips, Stats
Shakhtar Donetsk v Borussia Dortmund football match will be in 13.02.2013 at Donetsk, Ukraine for Champions League match. Shakhtar Donetsk got two loses and a lose in their home matches in group stages. They have beaten Nordsjaelland (2-0) and Chelsea (2-1) and they got draw against Juventus (0-1). Shakhtar Donetsk won all 9 home matches in a row in Ukraine League. They have very quality squad, they are playing well team football and their manager is very experienced. Mircea Lucescu is manager of Shakhtar Donetsk since 2004 and he has done good jobs with Shakhtar Donetsk. Shakhtar Donetsk has 8 Brazillian in their squad and they are very quality players. Shakhtar Donetsk has several successes in Europe. Their major successes: played quarter final in 2010-11 season and won UEFA Cup 2008-10 season. It makes them dangerous team for Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund has several problems before this match. They have injured and banned players in their squad. Shakhtar Donetsk is a serious opponent and such player abscense will bother them in the pitch. Marco Reus will be in Borussia’s squad in this match. Kevin Grosskeutz (Midfielder) and Ilkay Gundogan (Midfeilder) just recently got injured in Borussia Dortmund squad and they won’t able to play against Shakhtar Donetsk. Kevin Grosskeutz doesn’t have many alternatives in Borussia squad and I believe Borussia’s manager will replace Ilkay Gundogan with Nuri Sahin but I don’t think that Nuri Sahin will play well in this match because of his lack of match fitness. Borussia Dortmund is in second place in Bundesliga and there’s 15 points difference between Borussia and leader Bayern Munich. Borussia Dortmund got 6 wins, 4 draws and a lose in away matches in the league.
