Shakhtar looking forward to the game

Thursday, June 29, 2017



Today, the Donetsk team are playing their first friendly at the training camp in Germany

The Orange-and-Blacks’ opponents are the local club SV Rödinghausen representing the Regionalliga.

In the morning, the Miners conducted a light one-hour session on the pitch of Hotel-Residence Klosterpforte. Paulo Fonseca spent some time on tactics, with the team also focussing on set pieces in the end. All the players are preparing for the game.

- Three days have passed unnoticed, - Yaroslav Rakits’kyy shares his impressions. - Training sessions are diverse and very interesting. In the morning we work more on fitness: we train at a fitness centre, performing various exercises to improve endurance and agility, and our evening sessions are mainly dedicated to enhancing tactics. We are fatigued a bit, but that’s normal since we're on training camp. The mood is excellent, we look forward to the start of the game.

The match Shakhtar vs Rödinghausen will start at 6 pm Kyiv time (EET). Follow the text commentary and live stream on
