Open source

Zaporizhya-based Slavutych-Arena stadium hosted the game of second round of group stage of UEFA Europa League between Zorya Luhansk and SC Braga.

The home team lost two goals early in the game. Paulinho and Gaitan made the score 2-0 just 11 minutes into the first half. Braga left the ball to their opponents and stuck to the defense. However, Zorya could not breach the rival's defense lines. Vladlen Yurchenko could have used a few opportunities, but it was definitely not his night. 

Braga's defenders easily deflected the flanking attacks of their opponents, and almost got a clean sheet. Eventually, Ivanysenya landed a distant shot, and the ball ended in the guest team's net - thanks to the ricochet from the defenseman's head.
