Premier League: Dynamo draw with Shakhtar and failed to cut distance from Miners

Three matches of the 25th round of the Premier League were held among the teams that are fighting for the first-sixth place. In Kiev, in the central match of the first round of the second part of the championship Dynamo and Shakhtar have drawn a draw.

The preliminary meeting of Kiev with Donetsk recently took place in the quarter-finals of the Cup of Ukraine, where success in the series of post-match 11-meter the Miners were celebrating. Another grand duel was to answer the question of whether the intrigue in the championship, where the orange-black kept a seven-point handicap, would resurface.

The Miners 'starting lineup was predicted, and the absence of Marlos' team leader, who is recovering from surgery, was known in advance. And here at Dynamo the appearance from the first minutes of the newcomer De Penny was a surprise, because the Uruguayan joined the white and blue just a few days ago.

The first moment of the match was created by the visitors: Alan Patrick went past the Dynamo defenders in the middle, and Wellington Nem punched just above the crossbar. But after this episode, which took place in the 6th minute, the game went quite calmly when compared to the previous fights between these opponents. Under the curtain of the first half, the hosts stepped up, but several of their promising attacks, in which a significant role played by De Pen, ended to no avail.

Events began to intensify in the middle of the second half. The game was tough in just seven minutes, from 57th to 63rd, the referee Romanov issued players of both teams five warnings. But still there were no scoring chances. Only in compensated time the Miners had a great opportunity to gain three points, but Boyko won the duel against Moraes, who performed an 11-meter, intended for a foul by Burda on Dentinho. As a result, the tense match ended in a draw, which, given the tournament situation, is more comfortable with Shakhtar.

The match was attended by players who were on the list of the national team of Ukraine summoned for March. These are Kyiv's Boyko, Burda (yellow card), Mykolenko (yellow card), Shepelev, Buyalsky (yellow card), Tsygankov, Shaparenko (replaced by 54 minutes) and Pitmen Pyatov, Bolbat (yellow card replaced by 68 minutes) ), Krivtsov, Stepanenko (replaced in the 77th minute), Moraes (yellow card), Butko (replaced on the 68th minute), Kovalenko (replaced on the 72nd minute).

As for the results of the other two matches, it is worth noting the return of the Dawns to the fourth row of the table. Mariupol conceded to Alexandria and dropped to the fifth place, and Yuriy Vernidub's wards won a strong-willed victory over Lviv. The Lviv team played the first match under the leadership of Bohdan Blavatsky, who replaced Yuri Bakalov. The decisive ball in the offset time from the 11-meter was scored by the player of the national team of Ukraine Karavayev (played a full match).
