need a victory against Shakhtar, however, the Ukrainians will do anything in their power to make it through the

Champions League

knockout stage.

Group B is totally open before the last round of fixtures with Real Mardrid, Mönchengladbach, Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk fighting- and Solomon said the matches in this season have 'taught' them that the sky is the limit. 

“This Champions League group has taught us that nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible,” Solomon told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Now we want to at least draw the game.”

The first leg in Ukraine finished in a goalless stalemate and Solomon said it was more enthusiastically when the two teams met in the Europa League's semi-finals last season – a game that Inter thrashed the


with 5-0 in Düsseldorf, Germany. 

“It was less difficult than the Europa League semi-final, but still tiring,” Solomon added. “Usually, we are good at carrying the ball, but they push.

“And they have a great defensive system.”

Furthermore, Solomon conceded Shakhtar are careful about Romelu Lukaku, who has scored 12 times in 13 matches for Inter this term.

“We will do everything to stop Lukaku,” he continued. “He’s a beast, a monster. If he’s in the mood, he’s unstoppable.

“And he is underrated too. He should be considered among the greatest in his role. When Inter signed him, I wondered why Manchester United would give up someone like this.”
