Champions League. "Shakhtar" took revenge on "Barcelona" in Hamburg

In the fourth round of the group stage of the Champions League Shakhtar Donetsk met the Spanish Barcelona in Hamburg, Germany.

The players sought to rehabilitate for the away defeat against the Catalans — 1:2. At the same time, Marino Pushych could not count on Konoplya and Bondarenko today.

In the first half, the Ukrainians were in no way inferior to their famous opponent, and at times even prevailed. And if in the 15th minute Matvienko failed to beat ter Stegen after throwing Rakitsky from deep, then in the 40th "Shakhtar" opened the scoring. Sudakov made a great move to the right flank, Gocholeishvili passed, and Sikan hit the target with his head.

After the break, the picture of the game practically did not change. "Shakhtar" defended skillfully and regularly attacked sharply. So, ter Stegen had to save Barcelona after kicks from a sharp corner by Gocholeishvili and Sikan.

At the end of the match, the miners openly focused on defense, but did not allow the Spaniards to even create a scoring opportunity. Moreover, the ball went into Barcelona's goal for the second time, but Neverton's goal was disallowed due to offside. So we have a sensational victory of the champion of Ukraine — 1:0.

Shakhtar's players, who were called up for the national team's October training session, took part in the match: Riznyk, Matvienko, Stepanenko (replaced in the 72nd minute), Zubkov, Sudakov, Nazarina (replaced in the 72nd minute).
