“Shakhtar” reached the European Cup playoffs for the ninth time in a row
The 15th campaign in the group stage of the Champions League ended for “Shakhtar” with reaching the Europa League playoffs. The champion of Ukraine will play there on February 18 and 25. The team will know the opponent on December 14, when the draw will take place.
“Shakhtar” made it to the European Cup playoffs for the ninth time in a row and did so by getting into one of the strongest groups. Donetsk found themselves in a quartet with “Inter”, “Borussia” M and “Real”, which more often than others won the Champions League – 13 times. The miners beat Madrid twice, which previously only CSKA Moscow, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Ajax managed to do in the group stage.
At the same time, until the last round in Shakhtar’s group, the situation remained that the team could take both the first and the last place. Everything had to be decided by the match with “Inter”. It will be recalled that the last European Cup campaign of Donetsk ended in Milan. This time “Shakhtar” took revenge and left their opponent overboard. For the first time in history, “Inter” took the last place in the group and did not reach the playoffs of the European Cups.
Both times the team drew 0: 0 and both times 19-year-old Anatoliy Trubin stood in the goal. He also has a home dry match against Real Madrid. The goalkeeper was named the best player of the match in Milan according to UEFA.
This performance in the Champions League, “Shakhtar” can definitely be an asset and, most importantly, this is not the end of the European Cup season for the team.
