That was how many people, who came to Odesa to support the Pitmen. 300 buses delivered the fans to Odesa. According to the official stats, there were also nine thousand Dynamo’s fans, who came to the match.

Highlight of the match

The match referee Ihor Podushkin showed yellow cards only on four occasions, which happens quite rarely in the Ukrainian clasico. Dynamo’s players were awarded three yellow cards, and the Pitmen’s Elano was shown the yellow card for celebrating the goal in a too emotional manner.

Player of the match – Jadson

The Brazilian midfielder was unstoppable that evening. It was him who initiated the attacking move, which led to Elano scoring a goal. Besides, Jadson initiated the start of the Pitmen’s penalty shoot-out.

Quote of the match – Mircea Lucescu:

- We started the game well. Besides, unfortunately, after netting a goal, we dropped deep and allowed Dynamo to control the game in the first half. They seized on the dominance and pulled one goal back. The second half was evenly-matched. There was certain fatigue, as the pre-season was felt.
