Shakhtar traditionally selects the Man of the Match in every Premier League home game

We want to remind you that the football club jointly with Pepsi brand established a new award – Pepsi Man of the Match. In the domestic league round 17 game against Kamenske-based Stal, Ismaily was the best performing man on the pitch, thus earning the Man of the Match award.

- It's always nice when the head coach highlights your performance, - said Shakhtar’s Brazilian defender Ismaily. - I am very glad to receive this prize. In every game, I give my all to help the club win. Yesterday we met with a good, organized team. It’s good that we managed to score two goals and further increase the gap between us and Dynamo.

Shakhtar have already started preparing for the Europa League group stage closing game against Braga. Today, the team had a recovery session at Sviatoshyn base. The Pitmen also have more training sessions scheduled for December 6 and 7 on the pitch of Bannikov training facility. The Orange-and-Blacks will fly to Portugal on Wednesday afternoon.
