Inter Milan and Shahktar Donetsk both need victory to be in with a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages when they meet in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday. All four teams in Group B are separated by just three points, making a win at the San Siro a must for both sides.

Inter Milan Form


Inter Milan are bottom of the group heading into the game with five points. A win will propel them above Shakhtar Dontesk and see them qualify, unless the game between Real Madrid and Borussia Monchengladbach ends in a draw.

Antonio Conte's side kept their qualification hopes alive with a first win of the campaign last week. A Romelu Lukaku double helped Inter to a 3-2 win over Monchengladbach.

But their disappointing start leaves things hanging by a thread. Inter lost to Real Madrid 3-2 in Spain and 2-0 in Milan, and drew 2-2 at home to Borussia Monchengladbach and 0-0 with Shakhtar.

In Serie A, Inter have won their last two games to make it three in a row in all competitions. They defeated Sassuolo 3-0 before getting the better of Bologna 3-1 at the weekend.

Inter Milan Team News


Midfielder Artuto Vidal returns for Inter after missing the win over Borussia Monchengladbach through suspension.

Midfielder Nicolo Barella is a doubt due to injury, while wing-back Aleksandar Kolarov is set to miss out again due to coronavirus. 

Midfielders Matias Vecino and Radja Nainggolan and forward Andrea Pinamonti all remain sidelined.

Shakhtar Donetsk Form


Shakhtar are a win away from qualifying from the group despite suffering two heavy losses during the campaign. But such is the nature of the group, the Ukrainians could finish top or bottom come then end of the evening.

A win guarantees a place in the last 16. A draw in Milan will see Shakhtar qualify should Real Madrid and Borussia Monchengladbach also end all square. But a loss coupled with a Real victory would see Luis Castro’s side finish bottom and miss out on the Europa League.

It has been a mixed campaign for Shakhtar, who lost 6-0 at home to Gladbach and suffered a 4-0 defeat in Germany. They drew 0-0 with Inter at home and have twice beaten Real Madrid 3-2 in Spain and 2-0 at home last week.

Shakhtar have won three in a row with Ukraine Premier League wins over Dnipro-1 (1-0) and Minaj (5-1) either side of last week's victory over Real Madrid. 

Shakhtar Donetsk Team News


Shakhtar are still without defensive midfielder Maksym Malyshev, left-backs Ismaily and Viktor Korniienko and winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

Junior Moraes is a doubt after picking up a hamstring injury.
