SHAKHTAR DONETSK VS BASEL PREDICTION

Basel finished the job against Eintracht Frankfurt last week as they followed their 3-0 first-leg win to win the second 1-0. Their Swiss Super League form prior to that win was nothing special but they are fully motivated for Europa League action. They make the short trip to Gelsenkirchen and they will be fired up to face Shakhtar. The Ukrainian champions wrapped up their 5-1 aggregate win over Wolfsburg and their form has been hugely impressive since the restart. They sealed another league title and their form has been relentless. They have the quality and squad depth to beat Basel here and progress to the semi-finals.
