Eintracht will meet Shakhtar on Thursday for their second leg fixture of the 1/16 finals of Europa League. The hosts managed to score two away goals in the first meeting, but might not be satisfied as they played the majority of the game with a man more. Shakhtar will be hoping to repeat the result from their previous visit in Germany, when they triumphed 3:2 over Hoffenhaim earlier this season. In order to progress to the last 16 stage, Shakhtar need to score at least two goals and not to lose. If the teams repeat the 2:2 draw from last week, then the game will go to extra time.
