During the previous four days, from November 19 to 22, the matches of the 15th, final round of the first round of the XXXI Ukrainian Football Championship of the 2021/2022 season with the participation of 16 Premier League clubs were played. most of them are students and graduates of the football department of Ivan Bobersky Lviv State University of Physical Culture, and the head coaches of Veres and Mariupol are Yuriy Virt and Ostap Markevich, respectively, who also graduated from our university.
In the first match of the 15th round, Odesa’s Chornomorets hosted Dynamo Kyiv at the Valery Lobanovsky Stadium by agreement between the clubs. According to another agreement, the residents of Odessa were able to involve in the match players who are leased from the Kiev club, but this did not help them get a positive result. Although one of them, Isayenko, scored a goal against Bushchan. The difference in the class of rivals was noticeable and was embodied in the six goals of the nominal guests. Thanks to this victory, the White and Blues were ahead of Shakhtar in the standings, but only in terms of additional indicators, because the teams scored equally. After all, Shakhtar managed to put pressure on Rukh in the last minutes of the match on Saturday.
The Pitmen’s Italian coach Roberto de Derby had in mind the upcoming trip to Milan for the Champions League match with Inter, which will take place tomorrow, November 24, so he resorted to rotation. In particular, Stepanenko remained on the bench, Kornienko, Sudakov, Marlon and Alan Patrick did not get into the application at all. Moraes, who has not yet recovered from a serious injury, watched his teammates from the stands.
Rukh managed to defend reliably during almost the entire match. At the end of the match, passions flared up, even Roberto de Derby was sent off, but Shakhtar managed to snatch three points. First, Marcos Antonio struck a shot from outside the penalty area, and very soon he assisted Tete. 2: 0 – the fifth victory in a row for Donetsk in the championship.

In the first half, Lviv doubled the advantage – Tsvek cut the ball into his own net. Luhansk played one goal in the 64th minute thanks to a great long-range shot by Lunev, but failed to snatch at least a draw and, as a result, dropped two places in the standings and now occupy the fifth place.
Dnipro-1, which rose to fourth place after a home victory over Oleksandriya, took advantage of Zorya’s misfire, while Vorskla, who is third, Igor Yovichevich’s wards are second only to additional indicators. The hosts missed from Babogl after the corner, after which Dovbyk took up the case. The forward of the national team of Ukraine realized penalties, and also beat Bilyk after a great pass from Pihalonka from the depths of the field. With 10 goals in assets, Artem led the race of scorers.
