Shakhtar Donetsk will go head-to-head with Inter Milan in an enticing UEFA Champions League Group D game on Tuesday evening.

Both Shakhtar and Inter started their 2021-22 UEFA Champions League campaigns on a disappointing note, losing to Sheriff Tiraspol and Real Madrid, respectively.

They will be looking to get back on the winning track and qualify for the knockout stages from a tricky group.

Shakhtar Donetsk are coming off a 4-1 win against Veres Rivne in the Ukrainian Premier League. Meanwhile, Inter Milan played out a 2-2 draw with Atlanta in their last league game on Saturday.
