Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk will be looking to take advantage of Nordsjaelland’s inexperience in the Champions League.

Also in Group E are Italian Serie A champions Juventus and Champions League holders Chelsea FC, so Donetsk and Nordsjaelland will need to take points off each other.

Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu has revealed that Ukraine striker Marko Devic is fit to play after recovering from a muscle injury he picked up on international duty.

Danish side Nordsjaelland are making their debut in the Champions League after winning the Danish Superliga last season.

Midfielder Mikkel Beckmann has trained with the squad this week after picking up a thigh injury last weekend and he is expected to play some part in the game.
