Description: INT Vs SHA Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Shakhtar Donestk strive to emulate their emphatic attacking performance from the foregone affair
Although Inter Milan is a completely different proposition as compared to Basel, Shakhtar Donetsk’s 4-1 win in the quarter-final no longer sees them as mere pushovers in the league. The Ukraine League champions are considered to dole out a stern test to their Italian opponents today with the side showing what its capable of the last time around.
Schooling a downtrodden Basel side, Shakhtar Donetsk ended up wiping the floor with Basel the last time around. Shakhtar were in complete control of their encounter from minute one to minute 90 as they ran the show to walk all over Basel.
Elsewhere, Inter Milan were made to tire it out against Bayer Leverkusen in a fixture which saw the life being sucked out of the club. Drab in attack, the club yet again had to fall back on its defensive girt and resolve with the backline’s fortitude helping protect the club’s one goal lead to carry the side into the upcoming contest.
INT Vs SHA Dream11 Probable Winner
Where Shakhtar Donetsk were at their efficient best the last time around, Inter Milan were languid and dreary in their win. However, despite the varying manners of their wins, Inter Milan still make a foray into this forthcoming outing with the scales titled in their favour.
The Italians have been a force to reckon with under the tutelage of Conte this season. And the club will be looking to pay a testament to the strides its made by winning Conte his first ever European trophy.
This will be a closely contested affair, one where both the sides go at level footing with each other. We envision Inter Milan’s defence making the difference today with the side’s backline making life flummoxed for the club from Ukraine.

Across a hoard of seasons now, Samir Handanovic has taken over the side’s backline. The shot stopper has been in succulent touch this season as well, a player who has shown why he’s considered such a stalwart of the game with a slew of well worded and hard earned wins in his favour.
Put to the sword by Bayer Leverkusen the last time around, Inter Milan’s defence upped the ante to show its mettle. In what was a gallant, plucky and radiant defence from the side’s backline, the juggernaut put in a real shift with its blocks, tackles and aerial duels nullifying the German side’s attempted soirees to score.
That performance was yet another testament of the side’s formidable and incredible brand of defending. The display sees us earmark the two defenders from the club in the identity of Diego Godin and Ashley Young while the opposition will see us opt for Valeri Bondar.
Nicolo Barella showed why Antonio Conte has reposed such faith in him the last time around. The midfielder popped up with a crucial goal for the club in the fixture, one which alluded to his quirky brand of attacking skill set.
Marcelo Brozovic will be his partner for the encounter, a player whose ball handling abilities and expertise in transitioning play from defence to attack makes him a crucial wheel of the side’s gameplan. Schalke on the other hand see us roll in an entire trio from the club after this triad was the at the forefront of hitting four past Basel.
Taison finally showed what he can do when he’s functioning at his clinical best with a goal and assist to see him become the first pick from the side. Allan Patrick scored his third goal of the tournament in the same encounter to see him form the one-two of picks from the side.
With two assists against Basel, Marlos now has three assists in the competition to see him wrap up the set of picks from the side.
Junior Moraes showed why he’s his side’s top scorer the last time around. He struck his fourth goal in the competition to see him become an indispensable name for us today.
Inter Milan will also see their top scorer, striker Romelu Lukaku be snagged by us for the impending skirmish after his goal and assist against Bayer Leverkusen.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The four goals for Lukaku see him be our captain for today while Moraes is our vice-captain.
