Before the match

Roman Zaiev’s team got a day off after the away win over Ladomyr (3-2) and started preparation for the match against Krybas on September 20. Midfielder Yelizaveta Molodiuk joined the training process after health issues, but Alina Starukhina and Yuliia Semeniuk continue to stay in hospital. Shakhtar got 3 points after 2 rounds and are in the middle of the tournament table.

Liubov Mokhnach, midfielder:

– Match against Kryvbas will be a grudge match. I hope for a good game and our victory. I know opponent’s statistics. They are highly experienced, but we take this meet seriously as well. I think that our team are no worse than Kryvbas, besides, we won in the previous round, but that’s in the past now. All thoughts are only about Kryvbas.

Opponent

Kryvbas women’s team was formed in Summer 2021 on the basis of cooperation with Nika Mykolaiv. The team from Kryvyi Rih replaced them in the Vyshcha League and took the third place in the championship. The opponents strengthened up during the pre-season period signing 11 newcomers: Petrovets, Basanska, Olkhova, Aleksanian, Kochnieva, Pidhorna, Yeriomenko, Semkiv, Yanchuk, Zubar and Boichenko. We remind that Petrovets and Yanchuk played for Shakhtar in the previous season. In addition, head coach of the team Alina Stetsenko was changed by Volodymyr Yefimako.

Kryvbas started the current season with 2 crushing victories: over Dnipro-1 (7-0) and Ateks (8-0), which allowed them to approach round 3 being the first in the table. Polina Yanchuk is a scoring race leader in the championship (5 goals).
