Any history with United: A win and a draw from the 2013/14 Champions League group stage. Former United attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan won seven major honours with Shakhtar.
How they’ve done in 2019/20: Cantered to a fourth successive Ukrainian title with five games of the season to spare, thanks in no small part to Golden Boot-winning Brazilian striker Junior Moraes. The Miners finished behind Manchester City and Atalanta in their Champions League group, beating Benfica to reach the Europa League’s last 32.
Player to look out for: A 24-year-old centre- back of rare maturity and skill who has already won 26 caps for his country, Mykola Matviyenko has been the rock in a back four which had the best defensive record in Ukraine in 2019/20.
Any history with United: Most memorable of four past meetings was the 1998/99 quarter-final second leg in which United’s never-say-die spirit, and a late Paul Scholes equaliser in the San Siro, secured safe passage en route to the Treble.
How they’ve done in 2019/20: Inter have led a three-team challenge to perennial Serie A champions Juventus in an impressive domestic campaign. The Nerazzurri were third to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund in a tough Champions League group, knocking out Bulgarians Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League last 32. Coppa Italia semi-finalists.
Player to look out for: Former Red Romelu Lukaku has been in clinical Serie A form, with 22-year-old strike partner Lautaro Martinez likely to fetch big money in this summer’s transfer window.
