The 23rd round of the Ukrainian Football Championship was very protracted in time. The teams started playing on Tuesday and ended on Saturday. Sport.ua talks about the most brilliant episodes of the last tour.
Gentlemanly Act Tour
Poltava "Vorskla" continues to sink. Vasyl Sachko's departure from the team coach position did not help – in the next round of the Upl Karpaty, Poltava was not spared by the home team, beating them with the score of 4 to 0.
By itself, the defeat of "Vorskla", perhaps, did not surprise anyone. The situation at the club is very difficult, and there is still no light at the end of the tunnel. But the fight was marked by an infrequent act in the world of soccer. The 21-year-old Ukrainian striker Karpat Marian Shved, whose contract he bought Scottish Celtic last winter, scored a double, scoring in the 38th and 62nd minutes of the fight. The Swede could do a hat-trick when, in the 69th minute, Chizhov broke the rules over Ponde in his own penalty area, and the referee scored a penalty kick in the Vorskla goal. But instead of the Swede, the 30-year-old French striker Karim Yoda went to the "point", scored and scored the final score of the match.
Why the Swede was not to throw a penalty answered Yoda himself after the game: "It's great to have scored, I have not been able to do that for a long time. The goal is important. I hope this is a new beginning for me. Of course, everyone expected a penalty to beat the Swede. We talked to him and asked if I could punch him. He replied, "Please." And I scored. We get along very well on and off the field. Therefore, I sincerely thank Mariana for this opportunity. ".
The act of this Swedish gentleman, who placed the interests of his teammate to whom this goal was necessary for confidence, is greater than his own. In fact, it was Yoda's first ball in the Karpat lineup.
Tour of Penalties
Donetsk "Shakhtar" on the not very confident road hit "Alexandria" – 1: 0. The only goal of the match with a penalty was scored by Junior Moraes in the 12th minute. At the same time for designated penalty.
In the 11th minute of the fight, Tsurikov reached Wellington Nehom, who was running towards the gate and seemed to push him behind his back. The repetition showed that Tsurikov still threw the ball first, but Nem did not fall, because by inertia he took Tsurikov's leg, not because of a lack of the home team player. The referee decided otherwise, and Moraes noticed a penalty.
"My opinion is that there was no penalty. Of course I'm talking like a player from Alexandria, but before Tsurikov collided with Nem, and they fell, Tsurikov threw the ball. I think there was no penalty "– said after the average game "Alexandria" Cyril Kovalets.
At the same time, "Alexandria" for the fight created fewer moments than the "miners". Tsurikov's long-range attack was particularly good in the 26th minute – after being struck from the outside of the foot by a penalty on the left flank, the ball flew in an arc into the ninth, but hit the crossbar.
Anyway, Shakhtar won the win and kept the Dynamo difference by seven points.
54 minutes from the match "Dawn" – "Dynamo". The home team leads by 2 to 0, the guests are in the minority, winning in the pocket … No! Alexander Khatskevich's wings in the veins could turn the course of the fight and snatch the necessary victory.
In the 58th minute, Buyalsky punished the "men" relaxed. After 64 minutes, Tsygankov tied the game with a fantastic free kick. In the 69th minute, the teams were tied after the expulsion of Bely by the last hope, and in 29 minutes the Dynamo scored the winning goal.
The most experienced Ukrainian defender, 38, Vyacheslav Checher, who appeared on the pitch in the 11th minute of the second half, played a hand on his own penalty. The referee pointed correctly to the "spot", Tsygankov realized a penalty no chance for Makharadze.
The euphoria of Dynamo supporters was only hampered by the opinion of some football experts. As "Zarya" after 2: 0 inexplicably abandoned the game and began to allow ridiculous failures in defense, and did this systematically … But we are not advocates of conspiracy theories, right?
Take a tour
The game with "Lvov" was not very successful for "Mariupol", until the 22-year-old midfielder, Alexander Zubkov, took over the agreement, his contract belongs to Shakhtar Donetsk.
In the second half, "Mariupol" was inferior to the hosts with a score of 0: 1, but in the 55th minute Zubkov realized a penalty after the removal of Martan. Then in the 70th minute, Boryachuk scored, and in the 77th minute, Zubkov managed a smart shot from outside the penalty area – the ball ricocheted in the bar to the goal, making the score of 3-1 in favor of Mariupol. True, before the final whistle, the guests managed to lose the second ball, but that did not darken the joy of victory.
It is worth noting that in the current season of UPL, Zubkov already has 6 goals scored (one of them is from the penalty spot). Maybe it was time for Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseke to pay attention to a talented soccer player?
Donetsk "Olympic" home lost to Chernihiv "Desna" with a score of 0: 2 and brought his series without wins in the Ukrainian Football Championship for 11 matches. The last time Olympic won last October when the Odessa Chernomorets won with a score of 1: 0 at home.
"Anyway, we should be together, not separately. Get out, fight and fight for the outcome to stay on UPL. Difficult, all teams are organized, prepared. Each match will be difficult.– said after the mentor of the game "Olympic" Vyacheslav Shevchuk.
After 23 rounds, Olimpik is in tenth place in the Ukrainian Football Championship, with 20 active points with a goal difference of 25-35 points scored and lost.
The Ukrainian Premier League is often blamed for lack of entertainment, and those criticisms are fairly fair. More precious are the rare pearls that appear here from time to time.
In the game "Chernomorets" – "Arsenal-Kiev" (1: 3), the scoring pass was a jewel that at 37 minutes of play Gabon's 22-year-old striker Gaetan Missy-Mezu gave Pavel Orihovsky. Missy Mezu, using the transfer from the right flank, from the center of the penalty gave the transfer to the heel of Orikhov (!) In a jump (!!). Alexander Rykun was leaving the clearance somewhere … Orikhovsky kindly sent the ball into the corner of the goal, making the score 3-0. After such a knockout, Chernomorets was never able to go.
