Shakhtar plays host after its stunning 3–2 win over Real Madrid in an empty Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium last week. The Ukrainian side played with only a few regular starters after the team was depleted by a coronavirus outbreak. The club scored three times in the first half with a goal from Tetê in the 29th minute, an own-goal by Madrid defender Raphael Varane in the 33rd and Manor Solomon added another in the 42nd.
Madrid rallied in the second half, and Federico Valverde thought he had an equalizer in injury time, but the goal was ruled out for offside after video review. Riding on its momentum from beating Madrid, Shakhtar will now look for revenge against Inter.
Last week, the Nerazzurri were held to a 2–2 draw by Borussia Monchengladbach in Group B at home. Romelu Lukaku had two second-half goals, including a dramatic 90th-minute equalizer to save Inter. He has now scored in nine straight games in European competition (11 goals), marking the longest such scoring run by an Inter player.
