calling it right now, Shaktar has an amazing counter attack with speed and precision that Barca's overrated defense won't be able to deal with. Barshitlona will underestimate Shaktar and a Douglas Costa lead destruction will be their doom.
Alex Teixiera, Darijo Srna, Razvan Rat, Luiz Adriano, Fernandinho, Douglas Costa, for those who dont know what is basically a who's who of future best players in the world, except for Rat and Srna who are already the best attacking fullbacks any team in the world has to boast. Barca wont know what hit them. Who else agrees with this posts here

I know nothing about Shaktar or their players and never watched them play so I simply say they are horrible because they are from Ukraine and Im a flaming Spanish racist like the rest of my compatriots
Dude, don't come here pretending you know each and every player on Shaktar because you don't, and don't pretend you watch them play often because you don't either. I, like you, only know their best players, like Costa (I've been a fan since his Gremio days), Srna or Luiz Adriano, and get to watch them occasionally, mainly their CL matches. I've said multiple times I like Shaktar and the way they've been playing on the CL thread. I agree they play some nice counter-attack football, but once again your trolling nature has gotten you carried away "basically a who's who of future best players in the world, except for Rat and Srna who are already the best attacking fullbacks any team in the world has to boast". I understand your excitement when you discovered Shaktar on FM, but don't think football simulators translate literally into real world. As a Real Madrid fan I'd love Shaktar to advance round, but I just don't see it happening. If you're so certain about it then you'll have no objection to an avy bet, right?
