Dynamo Kyiv FC and FC Barcelona faced each other in the third round of the group round of the Champions League at Camp Nou.
The guests did not manage to cope with the pressure of Barça players at the beginning of the match with Messi scoring a goal in the first four minutes. Nevertheless, the Kyivites adapted their defense, which affected their offense in a positive way.
The second goal in Barca’s favor was scored by Pique – he executed a precise corner kick and then finished the sequence with a header.
The Kyiv club was not willing to give up easily. Thus, Tsygankov outplayed Ter Stegen, scoring the first (and only) goal for his team.
As we reported earlier, Manager of Shakhtar Donetsk Luis Castro commented on the loss to Borussia Monchengladbach in the game of the UEFA Champions League.
"It hurts because the loss took place as something quite unexpected. Basically, it was the same line-up that played against Real and showed its best in the attack and the defense alike. It's practically the same line-up that played with Inter, we proved ourselves strong in the defense. When things like this one take place, it leaves a horrible, dirty spot on our team. But football taught me one thing: if bad things occur so out of the blue, then the good stuff could take place just as suddenly as that. We'll get back to the level we used to play on. Yes, tonight the team is upset by the result; but anyway, one has to look forward, fix things and become better," he said.
