One of the biggest victories of recent years and of its modern history was celebrated by Shakhtar Donetsk! Although their roster is not comparable to those of recent years and due to the war situation they are playing in… neutral Hamburg, the Ukrainians managed to win 1-0 Barcelona.
Second win for the Shakhtar in the group, he reached 6 points and entered for good in the qualification zone, while at the same time he forced the Catalans into their first defeat and left them with 9 points.
The assets of the “blaugrana” moved to low standards, which seem to be in a state of deformation, as a result of which they have a lot of difficulty in scoring and getting results.

The standings of the 5th group:
THE Shakhtar he showed from the beginning that he wanted it more! Although the Barcelona dominated possession (40%-60%), it was the team from Donetsk who came out with more claims in attack and looked more threatening. At the same time, with excellent tactics, he had managed to limit Xavi’s team’s assets as much as possible and struck just before half-time, finding… a goal with Chikan after his excellent assist Gotsoleishvili.
1-0 was a fact, the Ukrainians had taken the lead and were called upon to manage it. On the other hand, the Catalans were quite talkative and did not put on a good face, o Lewandowski was well closed and Xavi he was forced to make a quadruple substitution with an hour remaining, dropping Pedri, Felix, Yamal and Balde.
THE Barcelona she became more active and kinetic, she began to threaten and create. However, the classic opportunities were lacking and the “blaugrana” were left shouting for a penalty in the 6th minute of stoppage time, with the fall of Felix not moving the referee, whose whistle found the Ukrainians celebrating like… children a great victory!
