Shakhtar have played English opposition eight times in European competition, winning three and drawing one of their four home matches and losing three and drawing one away.

Chelsea are the fourth different English team to be drawn against Shakhtar and the previous teams are all from London (Fulham, Tottenham and Arsenal twice).

Shakhtar have won 12 and lost just two of their last 18 home games in Europe (excluding qualifiers), but victory over Nordsjælland on Match Day 1 ended a run of four home games without a victory.

Shakhtar have won just two of their last 10 Champions League matches (W2 D3 L5), but are unbeaten in the last three.

Chelsea have won five and lost none of their last eight Champions League games.

Juan Mata and Oscar have scored with both of their two shots on target each in this season’s Champions League.

Chelsea have only won two of their last eight Champions League away games (W2 D3 L3) but those victories have come in their last three away trips.
