Wednesday, September 28, 2016



After the press conference of Shakhtar head coach Paulo Fonseca and defender Ivan Ordets, the Donetsk side conducted a training session at the Arena Lviv

Traditionally, the first 15 minutes of the session were available for media coverage. 21 players have been preparing for the meeting with the Portuguese side. Yaroslav Rakitskyy will not be able to help his teammates: the defender did not have enough time to recover and stayed in Kyiv. On the plus side, Darijo Srna already trained with the main group. According to Paulo Fonseca, the Orange-and-Blacks’ captain has recovered from injury and might lead the team onto the pitch against Braga tomorrow. By the way, the German team of referees, headed by Tobias Stieler, have been entrusted with officiating at Shakhtar vs Braga.
