Not having enough time to properly enjoy a comfortable Europa League win over Gent, in the Europa League, the Pitmen switched to the domestic league
The end of October was unseasonably hot for Shakhtar. Taking into account the European club cup game, the Pitmen will play 4 matches over 10 days, with the team thoroughly preparing for the upcoming test. In the Ukrainian Premier League round 12, Shakhtar will play Zirka Kropivnytskyi away.
On the morning of October 22, the league leaders gathered together at Sviatoshyn base. Before the session, the team wished Olexandr Kucher a happy birthday. The defender of Shakhtar and Ukraine national team has turned 34 today.
The session lasted just over an hour and mainly involved tactical exercises. Viktor Kovalenko, Vyacheslav Shevchuk and Vasyl Kobin trained individually. We want to note the return of Marcio Azevedo to the main group.
Shakhtar will have lunch and some rest after the training session. The flight to Kropyvnytskyi is scheduled for 20:30.
