Tonight’s game in Bilbao and 0-1 win for Zorya Luhansk became a true present for the football fans who support Yuriy Vernydub’s squad. Even though the home team spent almost the entire game pressing their opponent against their own goals, Zorya resisted and managed to counter-attack.
Ihor Kharatin’s header opened the score after the corner in the first half; eventually, it turned out that he sealed the final score of the game. As much as Athletic tried to breach Zorya’s defenses, there were no real threats to Andriy Lunin’s goals.
Zorya gained their first three points and now is ranked second in the group standings; Östersund leads the way with six points, after defeating Hertha BSC in the home game (1-0). Athletic is currently third, and Hertha comes fourth with zero points.
