In this east meets west match in the Champions League,  Borussia Dortmund travel to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk.
Shakhtar are without Willian who joined Anzhi in January
 
The Bundesliga side remained unbeaten in the group stages overcoming giants such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Ajax, while Shakhtar finished second ahead of reigning European champions Chelsea.
 
Shakhtar have been playing a series of friendlies to keep players in full match fitness. They have won 10 games out 12 but Dortmund will be tougher test for the Urkranian outfit. Dortmund have also been in similar form in the Bundesliga. Klopp's side beat Hoffenheim, Werder Bremen, Nurnberg and Leverkusen but were shocked 4-1 by Hamburger at the weekend.
