Shakhtar Donetsk FC will compete against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the third round of the Champions League. The match will be hosted by NSK Olimpiyskiy that is located in Kyiv.
The Miners are coming into the first match against Borussia in a good mood, being the leader of its group with four points. On Friday, they beat Mariupol with the reserve team, while some players were recovering from Covid-19. Luis Castro has a large selection of players for this match, but fans should be expecting the line-up that was used in the matches against Real Madrid and Inter.
As we reported earlier, tomorrow, on November 4, Dynamo Kyiv FC and Barcelona are scheduled to compete in their third Champions League group game at Camp Nou.
Barcelona has won both of its group games so far. The Kyiv club, in turn, is coming off a draw against Ferencvárosi Torna Club.
It is worth noting that five players and two members of Dynamo's staff have been recently diagnosed with Covid-19.
"Fortunately, most of them are asymptomatic (God willing!), but it is unknown when they will be able to return to work. Once again: health is crucial! Vivcharenko was urgently called back. It makes sense because he is a left-back," reads the message.
