Shakhtar Donetsk won first leg 3-1, Shakhtar was the better team and by some little mistakes made in the defense of Anderlecht, Shaktar could take lead in first half (2-0). Anderlecht had a few chances but didnt use them properly. Anderlecht played better in second half but Shakhatar gave Taison rest after first half. Acheampong scored important out goal for Anderlecht but Shaktar still managed to make another goal, match ended 3-1.
Shakhtar coach Lucescu will bring his best team her in Anderlecht, last match he gave some keyplayers rest against Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, which Shakhtar lost 4-1. Anderlecht played good game against Kortrijk and won easy with 3-0. Coach of Anderlecht Hasi says he needs a miracle to qualify.

The odds for Shakhtar have a good value and are overpriced in my opinion. Remember Shakhtar won 0-3 at Shalke 04 in previous round. I think Anderlecht has no chance to qualify, Shakhtar will take no risks here and try to take lead early on again.
My bet is Shakhtar to win with Asian Handicap 0 to cover a draw if Shakhtar plays a weaker second half again. Found @1.917 at Pinnacle. You can go for higher odds with Shakhtar to win too.
