Shakhtar are without a win in Group G after being held to a 2-2 draw at home by Zenit last time out.
On top of that, Mircea will be without the services of first-teamers Fernandinho, Jadson and Dmytro Chygrynskiy for the clash at the Petrovski Stadion.
But Spaletti, whose side sit second behind surprise leaders APOEL Nicosia, told his club’s website: “It won’t weaken them at all.
“The problem of my colleague from Shakhtar is that he has to leave such players as (Alex) Teixiera, for example, on the bench.
These players are no worse than the ones who are playing in the starting team.
Moreover, I think that having such players ready to come off the bench is only a plus for Shakhtar, since they’ll have the motivation to come on the pitch and prove that the coach made a mistake leaving them on the bench to start.
I know Lucescu very well. He’s an old football wolf. But you probably don’t know that we have the emblem of a lion’s head as a team symbol. So we’ll see how the wolf does in the lion’s den. We’ll see who’s stronger.”

Zenit have been receiving plenty of plaudits for their football in recent weeks, something which has left Spaletti somewhat bemused.
He is not worried the compliments will go to his players’ heads, though.
I don’t really understand this theory about recent weeks,” he said. “My team has been playing well for two years already.
We know perfectly well what we’re doing, and we know what difficulties we face both in the domestic league and the Champions League.
My players will never make the mistake of underestimating their opponent or being too self-confident. They know that if I see that, I’ll be upset.
You can be totally sure that those players who come out tomorrow will fight to the death in order to win. Don’t be concerned about our will to win.”
