    UEFA Europa League

    (224429) Shakhtar Donetsk at (224430) Vfl Wolfsburg 

    Don't sleep on this Ukranian side, Shakhtar is an experienced side who appear in the Champions League every year and have had several years advancing to the knockout rounds.  This year they finished 3rd in the group to fall to the Europa League, but this same side drew at Manchester City and beat Atalanta in the group stage who just advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League this week.  Evidence they can hang with the best, and I'm not saying that because Wolfsburg is the best, but they are a solid side who can be tough to beat, but the beauty here is we only need a draw to cash at least half of our wager.

    Wolfsburg is unbeaten in their last eight games, but Leipzig was the only side they played during that stretch that could qualify as a quality opponent.  Meanwhile Shakhtar has just four losses in regulation on the entire season and advanced past a very good Benfica side in the last round while Wolfsburg just had to beat a much weaker Malmo team to get here.  I like the experience of Shakhtar in this first leg to keep it close and I do think they also progress to the next round which they are favored at -125 and worth a play as well.


    Line Parameter: 4% good to +0, but pay up to -125 to get +0.25
