On Thursday, the Champions League will be replaced by the Europa League. All participants of the 1/8 finals will be determined during one evening there. And one of the tickets is also being contested by the last representative of Ukraine at the international arena, Shakhtar Donetsk. Marseille will be its opponent. Who will be better in France? The website contains the author’s prediction for the important confrontation on February 22, 2024.

Marseille is spending a very difficult season

Olympique spent a couple of years relatively well and calmly. This team was in 3rd place in the final standings twice in a row. Still, this time the mentor, Marcelino, who had come in the summer, was not immediately accepted by the fans, so it all ended in a rather scandalous resignation in the autumn. He was replaced by Gattuso, and the situation seemed to become normal. Then, another protracted unsuccessful period (relegation from the cup tournament and a winless streak in the championship) led to new harsh protests from the fans. Taking into account the higher mentioned background, the visit to Hamburg could have turned out quite well, but, having scored twice, the team conceded in return. And then it lost to Brest in the championship – 0-1.

Shakhtar Donetsk remains the flagship of Ukrainian football

“The Orange and Blacks”, if we speak about the recent period, have been replacing their mentors frequently. Jovicevic, who was allegedly not forgiven for leaving the previous Europa League, was replaced in the summer. Van Leeuwen, who had replaced the specialist, lasted longer than Marcelino in France, but quickly disappointed, despite a lucky victory in Antwerp. Pusic, the current coach, actually beat the Belgian club, moreover, he had pleasantly surprised by a 1-0 win in the battle against Barcelona before. Still, “the Miners” lost to their direct competitor, Porto, in the 6th round and moved to the Europa League. And they had to play with a lack of real match practice, but with a squad that not only did not weaken (Sudakov was kept from transferring to Juventus), but was also strengthened (the “proprietary” selection with an emphasis on Brazilian youth is returning) in this tournament.

Previous head-to-head matches

The Ukrainian club beat the French rival twice in 2009. Then the campaign ended with a victory in the UEFA Cup.
