Sporting Braga was impressive in their home leg in the previous round, as they overcame a deficit to eliminate Fenerbahce and move on to the quarters.

In the first leg, they lost 1-0 and had their backs against the wall as they wanted to keep their European dream alive.

And when they played as hosts in the second leg, they immediately levelled the aggregate score with a goal in the 11th minute from Koka.

Fenerbahce bounced back to turn the tide to their favour, but in the second half, Sporting Braga found their rhythm to eventually score three big goals to win the home tie 4-1, and eventually win the whole battle on a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Now playing at home for the first leg, Sporting Braga will hope to continue that impressive run in front of their fans to give them a lead against a dangerous outfit in Shakhtar Donetsk.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian club were barely threatened in their previous round battle against Anderlecht.

Playing at home in the first leg, Donetsk dominated the game en route to a 3-1 victory, which gave them enough breathing space to play the away leg against a determined opponent.

Not relying on their lead, Donetsk continued to pressure their opponents until they eventually scored another goal that gave them a 4-1 aggregate advantage which would eventually be the final tally between the two squads.
