For Borussia the Champions League became the last option for something more this season after few poor performances last year. The team does not have a chance to repeat its performance and titles from the last season. The head coach of the German teams is linked with few major European clubs, but he denies any talks…by now. Borussia has become a phenomenon not only in the German football. Jurgen Klopp has a remarkable football philosophy to achieve victories with young and not so famous players. On upper hand the Ukrainian team buys already well-known footballers due to their stable finance background of the owner of Shakhtar.
There is no doubt that it will be very cold in Donetsk, even for Germans. Some specialists do not expect very attractive football tonight, due to the weather and some poor performances by both teams. May be the draw is a logical end to Shakhtar-Borussia first leg match. For the Germans this year could be a disastrous after they lost their Bundesliga charisma. Shakhtar won the Europa Cup couple of years ago and printed their names in the history. They already made an astonishing performance last year kicking-out the Champions League title holders Chelsea. But people say that appetite comes afterwards, so we may expect that Ukrainians will fight for place in the history of the Champions League. It won`t be a surprise if Shakhtar kick out the Germans from the League race. Mind the fact that the miners are better when they play abroad.
