Match build-up

Shakhtar had a week to fully prepare for the second meeting with the French side: the team held several training sessions in Hamburg and arrived in Marseille on Tuesday evening. Head coach of the Orange-and-Blacks Marino Pusic took all 28 footballers to the game, however, it is known that defender Valerii Bondar (suspension) and Brazilian newcomer Marlon Gomez (recovering from injury) will not help the Pitmen team in today's match. Captain Taras Stepanenko's participation in the game is in question.


Marseille managed to play a match of the French championship against Brest between the clashes with the Miners. The Provencals had a game advantage, and from the 60th minute they were in a numerical majority after a sending-off in the opposing team, and even under such conditions they managed to concede in the 88th minute and suffered a minimal defeat (0-1). On February 20, the club's management announced the dismissal of head coach Gennaro Gattuso and on the same day appointed 70-year-old Jean-Louis Gasset, who previously headed the Ivory Coast national team, to this position. As for personnel news of the Olympians, Argentinian defender Leonardo Balerdi will miss the game due to disqualification, as well as the injured Valentin Rongier, Bilal Nadir and Pedro Ruiz. The participation in the match of the main goalkeeper Pau Lopez is in question.

Match background

Shakhtar and Marseille locked horns 3 times in European tournaments: 2 wins of the Miners, 1 draw (goal difference: 6-3) The first meeting took place a week ago in Hamburg, ending in 2-2 draw (Matviienko, 68′, Eguinaldo 90+3′ – Aubameyang, 64′, Ndiaye, 90′).

Stadium and referees

The encounter will be played at the Stade de Marseille (also known as Velodrome). It is one of the largest stadiums in France and the Provencals’ fans are considered to be among the most passionate in Europe. Almost all tickets for the game (over 62,000) have been sold, so a full house is expected today.

Marseille vs Shakhtar match will be officiated by the judging panel headed by Tobias Stieler. A year ago, he worked on the second game of the Pitmen against Rennes – then the Miners won the penalty shootout and advanced to the next round of the UEFA Europa League.
