Shakhtar held a charity match vs Fenerbahce in Istanbul as part of the Shakhtar Global Tour for Peace

All proceeds from the sale of tickets and advertising will be transferred to volunteer organizations, doctors, and also allocated to help the Ukrainian children affected by the war.

The Miners appeared for the match in the shirts bearing a photo of the 4-year-old Ukrainian girl Alisa who has been hiding in a bomb shelter in Mariupol since the first day of the war. By this act, Shakhtar wanted to remind the world community that more than 200 Ukrainian children have been killed due to Russia's military aggression, and today's match is an opportunity to show the horror of this war through Alisa's story.

The player kits of both teams featured the flag of Ukraine and the Football for Peace lettering. The game began with a minute’s silence in memory of the victims of the war.

It should be noted that the 17-year-old Kyrylo Siheev and Manor Solomon, who had joined the team yesterday, have appeared in the starting XI for Shakhtar. Heorhii Sudakov and Marlon were staying on the bench after having arrived at the club camp today.
The encounter started with a dangerous chance: already in the 2nd minute, Yukhym Konoplia decided to shoot from outside the penalty area to see the ball go just inches off the far post. Siheev had a great chance after a cross delivery, but the young striker headed the ball right into Cetin's hands. The Istanbul team responded with their dangerous attacks, and in the 26th minute they managed to open the scoring: Berisha brought Valencia through on target, with the latter outplaying the goalkeeper. Shakhtar could immediately bounce back in a similar style, but the duel with Solomon was won by the host goalkeeper. The teams continued producing an end-to-end display, but it never result in any goal-scoring opportunities. It was only at the end of the first half that Andriy Pyatov rescued the visitors by preventing Valencia from scoring from a point-blank range.
After the break, the Miners made several substitutions: thus, Shevchenko, Marlon, Kapinus and Sudakov appeared just after the break, while Farina, Boriachuk, Myshnyov and Drambaev came on later in the second half. Early in the second half, the hosts could double the score but for Berisha’s high effort from the goal line. The Donetsk side responded with their chance – the goalpost rescued the Istanbul side from Solomon’s attempt. Valencia missed another chance after heading the ball high from an advantageous position. In a couple of episodes, Oleksii Shevchenko acted safely, eliminating the danger in his penalty area. Shakhtar’s Boriachuk, Sudakov and Solomon were active, however, in the final stage of the attacks, they lacked a precision pass or a finishing touch. As a result it ended in a 1-0 win for Fenerbahce.

In Croatia on the 1st of May, Shakhtar will play a charity match against Hajduk Split in Croatia as part of the Shakhtar Global Tour for Peace.
