Premier League: Shakhtar is the champion of Ukraine in the 2017-2018 season

In the three matches of the penultimate, 31st round of the Ukrainian championship, which took place on Sunday, several important tournament issues were resolved.

First of all, the winner of the gold awards. Having won in Veres Kharkiv, Shakhtar guaranteed a championship for the round to the finish. The Pitmen have become inaccessible to Dynamo, and now a face-to-face meeting between these teams on the last game day of the championship will not matter.

The fight in Kharkiv was in jeopardy since Veres, arriving in advance of the match venue, then left home and asked the Premier League to postpone the meeting due to the food poisoning of nine players in the main squad. However, the Premier League refused the Ravens, and they were forced to go to the game for the second time, arriving at USC Metalist less than an hour before the start of the match.

However, despite the extraordinary conditions in which the "Heather" was, the match was not an easy walk for the Pitmen. Although Marlos quickly opened the penalty shootout (Ismail earned 11 meters), the Donetsk team did not manage to develop success. Moreover, the visitors were close to playing when, in the 21st minute, Stepanyuk hit the goal from a distance and hit the ball after a rebound from Stepanenko.

In the second half, the Miners completely dominated and pressed their opponents to their goal. 72 minutes into the match, the visitors were frankly lucky when Ishmael punched his head into the frame when he punched his head. And after the final whistle, Shakhtar players congratulated themselves on the second consecutive league title.

Candidates for the national team of Ukraine in the Pitmen: Pyatov, Butko, Krivtsov (yellow card), Rakitsky, Stepanenko, Marlos, Kovalenko (came on in the 63rd minute).

Dynamo met Zorya in a parallel match and won with the same score - 1-0. In the first half, the Kievans had some good opportunities to score the ball, but they did not succeed - the goalkeeper Zorya Lunin played well, and in some episodes the Dynamo players themselves did not work in the final stages. But in the middle of the second half the white and blue still achieved theirs. Verbich, having played a clear combination with Besedin, outplayed Lunin. 0: 1.

Both contenders included candidates for the Ukrainian national team. These include Kiev Boyko, Burda, Garmash, Shepelev (replaced by 87 minutes), Tsygankov, Besedin (goal pass, yellow card), Rotan (replaced by 87 minutes) and Luhansk Lunin, Svatak, Karavayev.

And finally, in the rivalry between Mariupol and Vorskla, a draw was recorded - 1: 1. In the 30th minute, the child made a pass to the penalty area, and Kolomoets, winning an air duel in Jaworski, opened the account. But at the start of the second half, Tishchenko scored on the net after Shust parried Boryachuk's shot. For "Vorskla" the candidate for the national team of Ukraine Kolomoets (goal) took part in the game.

In view of the results of the matches of the 31st round, apart from the winner of the gold awards (Shakhtar) and the silver medalist (Dynamo), the team took the fifth place and won the qualification for the Europa League qualification. This team was "Mariupol", which became inaccessible to "Heather". But in the fight for bronze the intrigue remains. In the last round of "Vorskla" in the game with "Dawn" will arrange a draw. In order to become third, Luhansk must win in Poltava.
