Before the match
 

Shakhtar will take the pitch as the 12-time domestic champions. The team of Paulo Fonseca secured the title early, 3 rounds ahead of the season end, winning 2 titles in a row in Zaporizhia last week.
 
In any case, the champions' clash with Dynamo remains the major performance in the season’s final part. A big entertainment programme is awaiting the fans at the OSK Metalist, which starts at 17:30 with the Shakhtar Fan Fest (sectors 19 to 29). After the final whistle, the Orange-and-Blacks will be awarded gold medals, plus there will be a concert with the participation of pop stars. You can purchase tickets for the match at the stadium ticket office and online, at shakhtar.com.
 
We want to add that Ismaily will not play vs Dynamo due to injury, and Taras Stepanenko will miss it after earning four yellow cards.
