Uefa Champions League
April 12, 2011 by staff
Uefa Champions League, Apparently, both parties have chosen to show this match despite being a foregone conclusion. Shakhtar Donetsk four goals against Barcelona, which are widely considered the best team in the world, and even Ukraine’s formidable record will not lead the Catalans to be eliminated here. So, while everyone else is focused on Old Trafford and Manchester United-Chelsea match, we will have what is essentially a glorified friendly in Donetsk.
Despite being given the opportunity to rest some of his key players, Pep Guardiola has opted to field all more or less at their disposal (Andres Iniesta is suspended), including Lionel Messi. Shakhtar start with your strongest team possible, but their defense could probably be described as “makeshift.”
Shakhtar Donetsk (4-2-3-1): Andriy Pyatov, Vyacheslav Shevchuk, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Mykola Ischenko, Vasyl Kobina, Tomas Hubschman, Mkhitaryan Henrikh; Jadson William, Douglas Costa, Luiz Adriano.
Substitutes: Eduardo, Fernandinho, Alex Teixeira, Khudzhamov Rustam, Olixey Gay, Marcelo Moreno, Sergio Krivtsov.
Barcelona (4-3-3): V? Ctor Valdés, Adriano Busquets, Sergio, Gerard Piqué, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Xavi, Seydou Keita, Ibrahim Afellay, Lionel Messi, David Villa.
Substitutes: Gabriel Milito, Maxwell, Peter, James, Fontas, Jeffren Su? rez, José Manuel Pinto.
