(U-17) Chornomorets 0-2 Shakhtar
In the match of the final part of the DUFL, 1 July, Shakhtar U-17 faced Chornomorets.
Shakhtar took control of the game straight from the start, orchestrating quick attacking moves. The opposition defence managed to deal with it not long. On 20 minutes, following a deflection, Buhay arrived first on the rebound to send the ball into the net. The Pitmen were motivated to cement their lead and created a number of scoring chances, but they managed to score only in the closing stages of the game. On 70 minutes, Topalov netted a first-time shot following a cross from Prodanov to wrap up the game.
Shakhtar U-17 head coach Gennadiy Orbu has reflected on the match:
- We had already known that we would face Metalurh Zaporizhzhya in the semi-final. A few of our players are injured now, so I told the boys that the main thing was to avoid injuries in this game. We managed to cope with this task. We will prepare further.
