Shakhtar Donetsk in the second round of the group stage of the Champions League with the score 0:2 lost to Manchester city.
Shakhtar on equal terms played the first half, but in the 47th minute, Manchester city’s long distance shot of Kevin De Bruyne came forward. Chance to take points from Shakhtar came when Andriy Pyatov pulled a penalty from Sergio Aguero. Alas, a few minutes later referee Jorge Sousa did not dare to give penalty against the British for a blatant handball by John Sconza. A few minutes before the final whistle a goal Raheem Sterling has removed all questions on the winner of the match.
Josep Guardiola (Manchester city): “Today, we beat an amazing team, a great match! Fred and Stepanenko played great today. Shakhtar are a strong team, and the team defended well. You have to give credit to our players to beat Shakhtar was tough. This is an important result for us, we struggled against a strong team”.
Paulo Fonseca (FC Shakhtar): “I am unhappy that we were defeated, however, should be very proud of today’s work of their children. Shakhtar showed great courage manifesting itself on the field. Not complaining about the judging, but simply stating a fact. I think you all saw it”.
