Zorya Luhansk defeated CSKA Sofia in the game of the group stage of the UEFA Conference League. The match took place on Thursday night.
The game lacked decent moments on both sides. Both Zorya and CSKA allowed mistakes in passes; the attacks lacked speed and precision. But even at that, Zorya managed to get what it deserved. Briefly before the final whistle, Shahab Zahedi took the ball from the defender and pushed the ball next to the post. And soon after that, Viktor Skrypnyk's team scored once again, thanks to the efforts of Allahyar Sayadmenesh.
In the other game that night, AS Roma played a draw with Bodo-Glimt (2-2).
Norwegians lead the way in Group C with eight points in their pocket. Roma comes second with seven. Zorya is third, with six points. CSKA comes as an outsider, scoring only one point.
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.
