Before the match
Paulo Fonseca significantly altered the composition as compared to the fight against the Belgian Gent. In defense, Bohdan Butko and Ivan Ordets out instead of Darijo Srna and Olexandr Kucher, in the middle of the field, Fred, Dentinho andTaison replaced by Taras Stepanenko Victor Kovalenko and Bernard, and to spearhead Andrii Boriachuk was appointed Facundo Ferreyra.
No sooner had the second hand to make a full rotation around its axis, as Shakhtar had a good chance to open the scoring. Dentinho led Boriachuk on the opponent's goal but shot 20-year-old striker has turned slightly. I did not have to wait and the next chance. Ismaily took the ball in the box Zirka beat a defender and shot from an acute angle - the hosts goalkeeper was alert. Over time, the ward of Dario Drudi managed in some way to move the game from their gates. They spent several kontrvypadov, but the Donetsk team has successfully coped with them. After 28 minutes, demonstrated good cooperation Marlos and Taison. The first gave a great pass, and the second with a fly past from close range - Eugene Past miraculously saved his own net. Orange-black continued to hold the initiative and increasingly began to use free zones. I could score Andrii Boriachuk. After receiving the ball from Fred, he released far ahead of goalkeeper stars, but could not really strike the final blow.
After the break the pace of the game dropped slightly. After 56 minutes, once again reminded of himself Andrii Boriachuk. He accepted the transfer of Fred and struck a powerful blow - would be a goal, but the ball hit the crossbar. Shakhtar possessed an advantage, and Andriy Pyatov was virtually no work. Another splash at the gates of Stars took place at the 69th minute. Ivan Ordets punched his head after a corner, but the ball went just over the bar. Soon the Shakhtars have doubled the score. After 73 minutes, he scored Boriachuk. Fred performed a soft canopy at the far post, where Andrew and his head hit the opponent's gate. After 80 minutes, Paulo Fonseca changed scorer on Facundo Ferreyra. At the end of the meeting at Fred position appeared Taras Stepanenko.
