The two teams meet on Wednesday night in what is expected to be an extremely close match.

Both teams have been given an outside chance of winning the competition and the odds on this match are extremely close.

Shakhtar Donetsk is narrow favourite to win with odds of 8/5 and Bor Dortmund has been given odds of 15/8.

Shakhtar Donetsk has managed to come through a group containing both Juventus and Chelsea and they have also played well in the league this season. They are currently top of their domestic table having won 17 out of 18 matches.

Bor Dortmund also had a tough group to defeat and managed to come top of a group which contained Manchester City and Real Madrid. However, the team has been struggling in the league this season; they are currently 15 points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

Dortmund has won against Donetsk in their last two meetings, the last one taking place in August 2011. Conversely, no Ukrainian team has ever beaten Dortmund in European competitions.

On the other hand, Shakhtar are unbeaten in their last four matches against German clubs, but they have only won two of their last seven Champions League matches at home.
