Shakhtar Donetsk:

Captain right Dario Srna will stay out of the fields as he sustained a suspension. RB Bogdan Butko, CB, Sergiy Kryvstov, midfielder Maksym Malyshev and winger Taison would remain outside due to various injuries from this crucial game. In order to safeguard their second position at the end of Group stage, they need to win this game. A defeat will give Napoli opportunity to jump on 2nd place by grabbing a big win against out of form Feyenoord.

They will enter the game without two players. LB Benjamin Mendy and CB John stones will remain out of the fields because of the injury they sustained earlier.
