Shakhtar Donetsk wins the match against Dynamo Kyiv at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv today. It was the final play of Ukrainian Cup. 

Shakhtar 1-0 Dynamo 

Goal: Marlos, 80'

The first half was horrible for Kyiv football team —  Pantić handled the ball in his zone and referee awarded the penalty. Marlos took the shoot in "panenka" style and hit the crossbar. Dynamo managed to take over during the latter part and created quite a few dangerous moments. The best of them was not realized by Yarmolenko in a 1v1 situation. 

In second half Dynamo also had scoring opportunities. Yarmolenko failed one-on-one moment once again. "Miners" finally scored toward the end of the game. Marlos caught the ball after Ferreyra, shifted to the center and made a beautiful shot outside the box.

It is noteworthy that this cup became 11th in history for Shakhtar and the team has caught up with Kyivans by the number of victories in the tournament.

As it was reported earlier, Shakhtar Donetsk won Ukrainian championship. Therefore, "miners" realized the "double" this season.
