Shakhtar continue preparing for the Ukrainian Premier League round 22 game against Olimpik

On the morning of March 14, the Orange-and-Blacks conducted a training session at the Bannikov training facility. Before its start, the team wished Facundo Ferreyra a very happy birthday. The Argentine striker turned 26.

Training on the pitch was preceded by a half-hour fitness session aimed at strengthening the shoulder muscles. After moving to the pitch, the Donetsk side traditionally focused on tactics. The Pitmen’s session was watched by Ukraine head coach Raul Riancho. At the end of the session, the Spanish specialist spoke with Paulo Fonseca and Shakhtar internationals.

Tomorrow morning, the league leaders will gather at the Bannikov UTK again.

We would like to remind you that the Donetsk derby Shakhtar vs Olimpik will be held at the OSC Metalist in Kharkiv on March 17. The game kicks off at 19:00. You can buy tickets at the stadium ticket office, online on shakhtar.com, on the partner sites tickethunt.netinternet-bilet.uae-sport.in.ua and at the retail outlets of the city.
