SHAKHTAR NEWS

Shakhtar secured the title a long time ago. However, their performance level didn't drop, and the gap between them and their rivals was getting bigger and bigger. They already defeated Dynamo Kyiv 3 times this season, and they will certainly try to do that again to close the season in the best possible way.

DYNAMO KYIV NEWS

Dynamo Kyiv will try to finally defeat Shakhtar, for the first time in 3 years. That won't be an easy task - it seems that Shakhtar is better than Dynamo in every position. However, this match doesn't have any competitive significance, and everything is possible if Shakhtar enters the game with a laid back approach.
