WORDS TO THE CONTEST
Paulo Fonseca, the head coach of Shakhtar:
– Maybe many do not know well "Hoffenheim" and "Lyon", but you have to understand that they have achieved third place in their national championships. In "Hoffenheim", a very young and ambitious coach, they surprised the Bundesliga in the last season. When there was a break of 10 players, "Hoffenheim" played for national teams. The investments they have invested in players also exceed 50 million euros. "Hoffenheim" – very strong. They have their own special idea of the game and they know perfectly what to do.
Julian Nagelsman, head coach of "Hoffenheim":
– "Shakhtar" used the schedule last season and with three, and with four defenders. Of course I will not say which schedule we will use tomorrow, you will see everything yourself. We will try to attack. "Shakhtar" is tactically well prepared, the game "miners" is very variable. "Shakhtar" is a good combination of defense and attack, this is his strength. I know more about Shakhtar than about bookmakers who come up with bets on games. Shakhtar is a strong team. But I think their coefficient for Shakhtar's victory will prove to be wrong.
"Miner": Pyatov – Danchenko, Hocholava, Rakitsky, Ismaili, Stepanenko, Patrick, Marlos, Maicon, Tyson, Moraes
"Hoffenheim": Baumann – Noordwijt, Bichakchich, Posh, Kaderabek, Zuber, Bettankur, Kramaric, Schultz, Joelinton, Salai
