Shakhtar secure confident 3:1 win over Feyenoord in Kharkiv
Shakhtar Donetsk in the fourth round of the Champions League group stage dominated over the Dutch Feyenoord, securing a 3:1 win in Kharkiv and thus getting closer to the playoffs.
The scenario of Shakhtar’s home game in Kharkiv was very similar to the away battle in Rotterdam two weeks ago.
Feyenoord once again scored an early opener as Nicolas Jorgensen upset the Kharkiv crowd at the 12th minute.
However, it only took Shakhtar’s Ferreira two minutes to score an equalizer, while another three minutes into the game Marlos left Feyenoord behind.
