The team coached by Mircea Lucescu, Shakhtar Donetsk, will meet Sunday on Metalurg Zaporozhye, in a match of the sixth round of the Ukrainian Championship.
2012-2013 season champion, Shakhtar team that led the championship from the first to the last stage, seems to have no emotions this season to win the title too large in number 9. The most feared opponent for Shakhtar until recently, Dynamo Kiev, has entered into obscurity in recent years. The two rivals have met in the fourth stage, the band Lucescu won 2-1. That was one of the two goals conceded so far by the championship leader, who scored 13 times.
On the other hand, Metalurg Zaporozhye, although he finished last season in last place, it was relegated, like the team who finished in the penultimate position, Zakarpattya. This season, Zaporoje seems not to suffer the fate of last season. After a bad start to the championship with a defeat at home in front of the Illychivets, followed three draws and a win for the opponent on Sunday Shakhtar, who has already accumulated more than half of the paragraphs at the end last season. We believe, however, that group coached by Sergiy Puchkov has 6 points after this stage, Shakhtar Donetsk won no less than 22 of the last 23 games at home in the league.
Last season, Shakhtar won at home in front of Zaporozhye, 2-0 second leg was a true madness, marking the no less than six goals, Mircea Lucescu band back from 1-3, equaling in the last minute of the game. Away But Metalurg Zaporozhye earned a single point in the last 5 games in front of Shakhtar.
