17:43, 17 May 2017

Ukraine’s greatest football face-off is slated for today, May 17, in the northeastern city of Kharkiv. Dynamo Kyiv will go toe-to-toe with its sworn adversary, Shakhtar Donetsk, in the struggle for the Ukrainian Cup.

The Mountaineers arrived in Kharkiv yesterday and had an open training session at Metalist Arena.

If Shakhtar wins, it will the 11th trophy for the team, which would mean both teams won the Ukrainian Cup equal number of times.

It is expected that the arena stands will be full, so the local law enforcers work in the enhanced security mode.
