Shakhtar Donetsk beat Zorya Luhansk in Kharkiv, becoming the football champion of Ukraine in 2016/2017 season.

The final score was 3:2 in favor of "miners".

Donetsk football team knew what they were fighting for and started to attack from the very beginning of the match. Zorya was trying to limit opponent’s strikes, but lost a first goal in the middle of the first half, when Ferreira caught the timing and opened the score with his foot after a pass into the penalty box. Second goal came early in the second half when Ismaily finished the attack after Bernard’s strike and goalkeeper’s save. Then "miners" scored their third one — Rakitskiy crossed and Ordets extended his leg perfectly.

It is noteworthy that Shakhtar went ahead of Dynamo by 17 points five tours before the end of the championship and became untouchable for the opponent. Paulo Fonseca, the manager of Donetsk football club needed just one season to bring all the awards back.

Beyond that, the title became 10th in Shakhtar’s history. "Miners" can also add Ukrainian Cup to its collection if they win final game with Dynamo.
