Match background Only this chapter

An intriguing Matchday 6 is in store in Group C as Shakhtar Donetsk meet Atalanta in Ukraine with both hoping to claim second place in the section – although Dinamo Zagreb could also progress to the last 16.

• Manchester City have won the group with 11 points, with Shakhtar second on six and Atalanta fourth on four. A home win in Kharkiv therefore means Shakhtar will go through if they beat Atalanta, or if they draw and Dinamo fail to win at home to City. Atalanta will go through if they beat Shakhtar and Dinamo do not beat City; Dinamo will go through if they win and Shakhtar do not beat Atalanta.

• On Matchday 2, in the sides' first meeting and Atalanta's first match against Ukrainian opposition, the Italian club looked set to pick up their first UEFA Champions League point even after Duván Zapata's first-half opener was cancelled out by Júnior Moraes before the break, only for Shakhtar substitute Manor Solomon to give the visitors the points five minutes into added time.

Highlights: Atalanta 1-2 Shakhtar Donetsk

Form guide
• Shakhtar have drawn their last three games, home (2-2) and away (3-3) against Dinamo Zagreb and, last time out, 1-1 at Manchester City. They had opened with a 3-0 loss at home against the English club before the comeback win at Atalanta.

• Shakhtar have won only two of their last 12 UEFA Champions League matches (D6 L4).

• The Donetsk club have been defeated in only three of their last 20 home matches in Europe (W11 D6), although they have not won any of the last six. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of the last 11.

• Quarter-finalists in 2010/11, Shakhtar won only one of their six matches in last season's group stage, collecting six points to finish behind City and Lyon in Group F. They then went down 6-3 on aggregate to Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 (2-2 h, 1-4 a).

Highlights: Manchester City 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

• Shakhtar have got out of their UEFA Champions League group in three of their last six participations.

• The Pitmen's record at home to Italian clubs is W5 L6. They have won the last two matches 2-1, most recently against Roma in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg, a tie they lost on away goals after a 1-0 away defeat.

• Shakhtar qualified as winners of the Ukrainian league, claiming the title for the 12th time in 2018/19, when they completed a domestic double for the third season in succession.

Highlights: Atalanta 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

• Atalanta have suffered their two heaviest European defeats this season, losing 4-0 away to Dinamo on Matchday 1 before a 5-1 loss at Manchester City in their second away game. All four of their points have come in their home fixtures, played at San Siro in Milan; after being denied a point by those two late Shakhtar goals on Matchday 2, they held City to a 1-1 draw to get off the mark in the UEFA Champions League, then picked up their first win in the competition last time out with a 2-0 defeat of Dinamo.

• The win against Dinamo ended Atalanta's six-match winless run in Europe (D3 L3).

• Before Matchday 1, the Italian club were unbeaten in seven matches in continental competition; they have still lost only four of their last 19 European games (W8 D7).

• This is Atalanta's 41st European match, and their seventh campaign in continental competition. They reached the European Cup Winners' Cup semi-finals in 1987/88 and the UEFA Cup quarter-finals three years later.

Highlights: Atalanta 1-1 Manchester City

• Third in Serie A in 2018/19, their highest ever finish, and Coppa Italia runners-up, this is Atalanta's third successive European campaign. They came through the UEFA Europa League group stage in 2017/18, losing to Borussia Dortmund in the round of 32 (2-3 a, 1-1 h), and were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Copenhagen in the play-offs of the same competition in 2018/19 after the tie had finished goalless; Atalanta had earlier eliminated Sarajevo (10-2 aggregate) and Hapoel Haifa (6-1).

• Atalanta lost five of their first six away European matches (D1) but have suffered only four defeats in the 13 since (W4 D5) and only three in the last nine (W3 D3).

• Atalanta are the only team to be making their group stage debut in 2019/20 – they are the tenth Italian club to feature and the 141st overall.

Highlights: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-2 Dinamo Zagreb

Links and trivia
• Atalanta's Ukrainian international midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi started his career with Shakhtar, coming through the youth ranks before breaking into the first team in 2011. He was a Shakhtar player until 2017 but never played for the first team, having loan spells at a number of other clubs including Sevastopol and Zorya Luhansk, before leaving for Genk in 2015, initially on loan; he made the move to the Belgian club permanent in May 2017.

• Malinovskyi played 44 games and scored seven goals in the Ukrainian Premier League for Zorya Luhansk, where he was a team-mate of Shakhtar's Andrii Totovytskyi.

• Atalanta captain Alejandro Gómez played in Ukraine with Metalist in 2013/14 alongside Marlos, now at Shakhtar. His two games against Shakthar ended in a 1-1 draw and a 4-2 defeat.

Highlights: Manchester City 5-1 Atalanta

• Josip Iličić was part of the Slovenia side that lost 3-1 on aggregate to Ukraine in the UEFA EURO 2016 play-offs; Andriy Pyatov, Taras Stepanenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka featured for the Zhovto-Syni.

• Atalanta's Guilherme Arana and Shakhtar's Dodô played together for Brazil U20s in 2016/17.

Head coach Only this chapter

Luís Castro

Date of birth: 3 September 1961
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: Leiria (twice), Vieirense, Vitória SC, Elvas, Fafe, Águeda
Coaching career: Águeda, Mealhada, Estarreja, Sanjoanense, Penafiel, Porto (youth), Porto B (twice), Porto, Rio Ave, Chaves, Vitória SC, Shakhtar Donetsk

• A right-back, most of Luís Castro's 17-year playing career was spent in the lower leagues, although he did feature for Vitória SC and Elvas in the top flight.

• His seven years at Águeda, which started in 1990, marked Castro's longest stay at a club and was only ended by his retirement in 1997; moved into coaching with the same team the following year, leaving his post in 2000.

• Went on to have short spells with lower-league Mealhada, Estarreja and Sanjoanense before taking charge of top-flight Penafiel in 2004; remained in charge for two years, guiding them to 11th place in his first campaign – which included a 1-0 home win against Benfica – but leaving at the end of the following campaign after relegation.

• Moved into Porto's youth system, going on to spend ten years at the Dragons, including a short stint as caretaker coach to the first team at the end of the 2013/14 campaign; guided the club to third place in the league – and past Napoli in the UEFA Europa League – having stepped up following Paulo Fonseca's departure.

• After returning to Porto's B team, winning the second division title in 2015/16, Castro moved on to become head coach of Rio Ave; spent a season there, then one at both Chaves and Vitória SC; in June 2019 he replaced Fonseca again, taking over at Shakhtar following his compatriot's departure for Roma.


Gian Piero Gasperini

Date of birth: 26 January 1958
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Juventus, Reggiana, Palermo, Cavese, Pistoiese, Pescara, Salernitana, Vis Pesaro
Coaching career: Juventus (youth), Crotone, Genoa, Internazionale, Palermo (twice), Genoa, Atalanta

• Gasperini came up through Juventus youth ranks alongside Italy legend Paolo Rossi but never played in Serie A for the Bianconeri, only appearing in the Coppa Italia. Loaned to Reggiana in 1977/78, he joined Palermo for the following campaign.

• After spells at Cavese and Pistoiese, the midfielder moved to Pescara in 1985 and captained the team to promotion to Serie A two years later; scored on his top-flight debut in September 1987 and stayed at the club until 1990, ending his career in the lower divisions with Salernitana and Vis Pesaro.

• After seven successful years as coach in Juventus's youth system, Gasperini took over at Crotone in 2003, leading the southern side into Serie B during his first season before joining Genoa in 2006; again gained promotion in his debut campaign, taking his new club up to the highest division and winning the Panchina d'Argento (Silver Bench) as Serie B's coach of the season.

• Famous for his attacking football and tactical knowledge, in 2008/09 Gasperini led Genoa to fifth place in Serie A, losing out on a place in the UEFA Champions League to Fiorentina only on the head-to-head rule. The first Genoa coach to win three Serie A derbies against city rivals Sampdoria, he was sacked after only ten games of the 2010/11 season. 

• Had three months as Inter coach in 2011 before two short spells at Palermo and three years back in charge at Genoa. Appointed Atalanta coach in June 2016, his first season in Bergamo ended with the club in fourth place, earning their first European campaign in 27 years; Atalanta reached the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 and finished third in Serie A the following season to reach the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time.
