Zorya Luhansk came to Bulgaria to stand against CSKA Sofia in the fixture of the UEFA Conference League.
In spite of the high pace shown by the home team in the first half, Viktor Skrypnyk's men got their chance and eventually opened the score. Thanks to the efforts of Iran's midfielder Allahyar Sayyadmanesh, Zorya got the upper hand.
Shortly before the final whistle, Thibaut Vion downed Artem Hromov and was sent off.
Zorya became the only Ukrainian team that managed not only to win, but also to score in the first round in their respective competition.
Earlier, we reported that AC Milan has been eyeing SL Benfica's Ukrainian forward Roman Yaremchuk. If the deal takes place, the player could move to Italy already this winter.
According to Calciomercatonews, the Italian team have been troubled with current shortage of forwards. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud are injured, so the club management looks for the options to boost their attack. Yaremchuk seems to be their priority target now.
