Shakhtar Manager -- Mircea Lucescu -- is redefining the team after the club sold arguably three of their best players (Douglas Costa, Alex Texiera, and Luiz Adriano.) Shaktar Donetsk is in the first position in their league.

Anderlecht on the other hand have a very good record playing teams from the Ukrainian Premier League, we wait to see how this pans out.
