Announce a match of the 4th round of the group round of the Europa League, where the team will meet the group of H «Gent» and «Shakhtar».
«Shakhtar» was at a distance from one victory to guarantee a way out in the playoffs of the Europa League. And this last necessary step Paulo Fonseca’s team will try to make in Belgium against the «Gent», which she defeated 5:0 in the home match. «Shakhtar» with a margin of lead in their group, with 9 points after 3 games (with a difference of 8 goals: 0). «Gent» — 4 points, the «Braga» — 2, in the «Konyaspor» — 1. Consequently, «Shakhtar» does not want to create problems for yourself and will try to quickly solve the problem of access European Cup in the spring.
«Shakhtar» is in great shape, because in addition to the successful moves in the Europa League, the team is in first place in the championship and recently made it to the 1/4 Cup of Ukraine. In general, in all competitions in the last 4 «Shakhtar» matches only got the victory with a total difference of goals in these games is 12:1.

But there is someone to replace him.
The match between the teams in the 3rd round of the Europa League turned out to be a disaster for the very Belgian, who missed 5 goals and failed to score at least a goal of prestige. Besides, «Gent» pretty bad things, and in the domestic championship: the team lost 3 of their last 5 games, though, and continued to go to the leaders of the group. Team Vanhazebruka is 6th, but behind the 2nd place just 3 points, and the leader of the «Sylte-Waregem» — 6.
Directly in front of the mast with «Shakhtar» «Gent» lost «Mechelen» 0:2. The conclusion that can be drawn from the Belgian club, is that the team at this stage of the season is not enough stability.
