Day after tomorrow, Shakhtar will play away against Wolfsburg in the first match of 1/8 finals of the Europa League.

However, the fight on “Volkswagen Arena” will be held in an empty stadium, according to local newspaper wolfsburger-nachrichten.de.

This decision was taken by the leadership of the German club, in cooperation with the city authorities on the cause of outbreaks of coronavirus. Soon the decision will be announced officially.
