In an interview with Shakhtar News, the goalkeeper and captain Andriy Pyatov spoke about the upcoming start of the Champions League group stage campaign

- Many people consider Sheriff to be the group outsiders. What do you think about this team?
- When they are considered outsiders – that’s the worst thing. We don’t think so and get prepared. I personally know their coach well, I know how he played against Shakhtar - how many years we’ve spent in the league as rivals ... But nevertheless, this is a different team.

- Is the fact that Sheriff have a Ukrainian coach against whom you’ve played many times in the league, a plus for Shakhtar?
 - I think it makes no difference. Whoever they have, we still prepare with just one goal - to win every match, regardless of whether it’s Sheriff, Real Madrid or Inter. Our task is to advance from the group. We’ll try to accomplish it.
