Alex Teixeira is a stone's throw from the record

Shakhtar midfielder’s Ukrainian League goal-scoring run has reached six games with the previous season taken into account. It kicked off on May 9 in the meeting vs Hoverla and still continues.

In the next round, the number 29 can repeat Andriy Vorobei’s achievement. This said, Alex Teixeira has already outperformed the Ukrainian forward in terms of scoring, having netted 10 goals. In the 2000-01 season, Andriy Vorobei notched up nine goals in seven games in a row.

Symbolically, Shakhtar are playing their nearest Pari-Match League against the Uzhhorod side. It will be held at the Arena Lviv at 19:30 on August 1. Tickets for the match Shakhtar - Hoverla are already available on the club’s official website.
