The Miners continue preparing for the second leg of the UEL Round of 16 tie vs Wolfsburg

After a friendly game vs Veres and one day off on July 31st, Shakhtar held a ninety-minute training session on the field of the Sviatoshyn sports complex.

First, Luis Castro gathered the players and outlined their training plan for the coming days. The session started with a long warm-up, jogging and recovery exercises. Then the Miners split into groups: while one group worked with the ball, the others, under the guidance of Pedro Brito, performed exercises for improving abs, balance and coordination. They also held a mini-tournament for three teams.

We want to mention that Alan Patrick has already rejoined the team ranks and was training in a regular mode along with the others after being out for a few days due to injury.

Let us remind you that the second leg of the Europa League Round of 16 tie Shakhtar vs Wolfsburg will be held behind closed doors in Kyiv on August 5th. In the first leg in Germany, the Orange-and-Blacks claimed a 2-1 win.
