Having lost minimally at the Santiago Bernabeu (1-2), the Donetsk natives played an excellent match in Warsaw, but lost the victory in the 90+5th minute (1-1).

After that, the Miners got an important victory in the Championship of Ukraine over Dynamo (3-1) and beat Kolos (3-0).

Previous meeting

On September 14, 2022, Shakhtar hosted Celtic in Warsaw in the 2nd round match of the Champions League. The scoring was opened in the 10th minute when, after Hadate's kick and a ricochet from Bondarenko, the ball flew into the net of the Donetsk goal. However, even before the break, the hosts played back: Sudakov kicked the flank to Mudryk, who went out one-on-one and scored with a kick under the crossbar. Both teams were able to snatch victory, but the final whistle recorded a 1-1 draw.

The Celtic vs Shakhtar match will be judged by a Dutch team of referees headed by Serdar Gözübüyük.
