Oleksandr Shovkovskiy made his debut as head coach of Dynamo, replacing Mircea Lucescu, who fell ill, as an acting coach. The debut for SaSho turned out to be successful: Dynamo beat Metalist 3:1. With the same score, Shakhtar beat Kolos. The first victory in the spring part of the season was finally won by Veres, who beat Lviv. The next victories were won by Zorya and Dnepr-1.
The first game as the acting head coach of Dynamo was successful for Alexander Shovkovsky. Throughout almost the entire match against Metalist, Dynamo dominated. In addition, due to the removal of the Kharkiv midfielder Romanyuk at the very beginning of the second half, the White-Blues had a numerical advantage. In the first half, the score was never opened. Dynamo got their way in the middle of the second half of the meeting, scoring twice with an interval of five minutes (Sirota and Vanat scored). True, the Kharkiv team retook one goal (Pryadun), after which the “white-blues” were clearly nervous. However, the numerical superiority of the Kievites did have an effect at the end of the fight: Vivcharenko’s accurate shot removed all questions about the winner.
A classy goal against Metalist was scored by Dynamo defender Sirota. In the 70th minute of the match, Alexander decided on a long-range shot from outside the penalty area. The ball on a beautiful trajectory flew into the far corner of Yermolov’s goal. The last time Sirota scored for Dynamo was almost two years ago, in the summer of 2021.
Zorya midfielder Antyukh scored against Chornomorets in a similar style. In the 34th minute, Denis decided to shoot from outside the penalty area: a heavily launched ball flew into the right corner of Nepogodov’s goal.
Dynamo led the game against Metalist 2-0, and nothing foreshadowed any problems for the White-Blues. Nevertheless, the people of Kiev failed to avoid problems. Out of the blue, the center back Popov made a mistake, who began to be wiser in a situation where you just had to roll the ball to Neshcheret. But for some reason Denis began to beat Kartushov, stepped on the ball and fell. The opponent easily took advantage of this oversight and passed to Pryadun, who was already scoring into an empty net.
In the game against Metalist for Dynamo, Diallo made his UPL debut. The midfielder entered the field in the 78th minute of the meeting, replacing Benito. During the time allotted to him, he was not noted for effective actions.
All bad things come to an end. Veres’ winless streak consisted of 11 matches – a new anti-record for the club. In the game against Lviv, Wirth’s team finally got the long-awaited victory. This victory broke another anti-record of the Rivne team: they could not win in 12 home matches in a row. Thanks to the victory, Veres managed to leave the relegation zone for a while. But it will be very difficult for the Lviv team, who have already lost the sixth match in a row, to rise from the very bottom of the standings.
In the ability to score goals from the “set pieces”, the players of “Kolos” in the UPL have practically no equal. So in the match against Shakhtar, Vishnyak’s men scored after a free-kick. Milko crossed from the depth of the field to the right flank of the attack, from where Chobotenko dropped the ball to the naked Orikhovsky, who calmly outplayed Trubin in close combat.
The Pitmen’s forward Kelsey needed just one minute to score a goal in the game against Kolos. The Venezuelan appeared on the field in the 79th minute of the meeting, replacing Traore, and already in the 80th he became the author of the goal scored, successfully reacting to the ball bouncing off the bar.
Minai’s only goal against Metalist-1925 was scored from a penalty spot. The moment that prompted the referee Novokhatny to point to the “point” cannot be called otherwise than controversial. Kharkiv defender Kurilo in the fight against the midfielder of the Transcarpathian team Tverdokhlib was the first to get the ball. But after a contact fight, Egor ended up on the lawn, and the referee awarded a penalty. There was no VAR system in the game.
Dovbik scored another goal for Dnipro-1. This time, Ingulets suffered from the Dnipro striker. For Artem, this goal is the eighth in the last five matches. And in total, the striker has 20 goals. Before Mkhitaryan’s record for the season – five accurate shots.
Up to 90+2 minutes of the match “Rukh” – “Vorskla” Poltava won thanks to Stepanyuk’s accurate shot. But Skrypnyk’s wards failed to keep the victory. In stoppage time for the second half of the meeting referee Kozyryatsky appointed a penalty. Klimchuk did not blunder from the “point”.
The first defeat at the head of “Alexandria” suffered Ruslan Rotan. Under his leadership, the team played nine matches: one victory, seven draws, and now there is a defeat.
Symbolic team of the tour: Klischuk – Miroshnichenko, Sirota, Imerekov, Vivcharenko – Orikhovsky, Brazhko – Guerrero, Bondarenko, Khomchenovsky – Svrzhnyak.
