To a common standard


On February 23, the training session lasted more than an hour - 75 to 80 minutes. The regular warm-up and squares were followed by playing exercises aimed at better attacking and defending. Then the players who were involved in the encounter with Rukh left for a fitness session, while the rest played in a restricted area of the pitch with six goals and practised shooting for 15 minutes.


The match against Maccabi Tel Aviv is just two days away. After Shakhtar's 2-0 victory in Israel, the teams will lock horns at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in Kyiv. The game kicks off at 19:55 on February 25. The tickets are available on and on the FC Shakhtar mobile app (Google Play and App Store).
