On July 5, Shakhtar will have two friendlies in Austria. The Miners’ second opponents are Copenhagen, Denmark. The meeting between the Champions of Ukraine and Denmark will kick off at 18:00 Kyiv time (EET) and will be aired live for the registered users of shakhtar.com.
Copenhagen are the 13-time Champions of Denmark. The capital club finished the regular part of last season one point ahead of Midtjylland; after the second stage, in which they beat the major competitors twice, the gap increased to 11 points. Of course, the Lions boast the best attacking and defensive thirds in the country (86 goals scored, 37 goals conceded).
Copenhagen are coached by the 51-year-old Stale Solbakken, who returned to the club in 2013 after a two-year spell in Germany (FC Koln) and England (Wolverhampton Wanderers). The coach prefers the classic 4–4–2 formation. The league’s top scorer Robert Skov (29 goals, the new league record) and Dame N’Doye of Senegal (22) lead the Danish attackers. We also want to highlight the best assist provider, the left winger Viktor Fischer and the right-back Peter Ankersen.
Nine months ago, the teams met in Dubai and delivered a spectacular duel with multiple scoring opportunities (watch the review).
