Two evenings our fans watched peripetias of the first matches 1/16 Cups in which the majority of teams don't concede on a rating and Champions League. From "Dynamo" expected bigger, but selection conservatism doesn't allow command to change habitual ordinary level. I couldn't take part in a match and a joker - Argentinian Guillermo, and Aliyev finished disqualification. It is possible to speak in interview (as it is done by Yuri Semin and Igor Surkis) that the arbitrator in a number of episodes was inconsistent in decisions that mistakenly removed from Milevsky's field. But as a result - 1:1 and foggy prospects on an exit in the following circle. "Dynamo" took off for Spain already on Thursday morning (the sparring is planned for February 22 with Samara "Wings"), as a part of delegation - and ex-pervomayets Oleg Dopilka.
Contrary to pessimists "Metalworker" fine played in Genoa, having managed to get an important exit victory. The effective goal was scored by the beginner of team Oleynik. At the very end of a meeting for replacement there was the Nikolaev football player Andrey Berezovchuk, carried out in the field of about four minutes (including compensated time). So the debut of the pupil of sports school "Nikolaev" in Euro cups took place. And here Nikita Rukavitsa on Thursday played all match on a bench of "Tvente", but chance to prove to it will provide, apparently, already in other meetings of team of Steve McLaren. As well as "Metalworker", club from Eskhede won an important victory on a visit over "Marseille".
Donetsk "Miner" competently and rationally played a match with "Tottenham", for a dessert reserved two goals in English gate.The first contact I hammered a ball with the head hardly having come for replacement Seleznev (after Zhadson's giving), and then Brazilian Zhadson individually skillfully played. Whom now excites, what British played without a number of the main players? The trip to Donetsk will be remembered also to four English fans whom beat in day of a match around library of Krupskaya. Attacking there were about three tens, the FC "Shakhter" disowned from an event, having written off everything for ordinary juvenile hooligans. Rinat Akhmetov watched a match together with Victor Yanukovych. His president told about chances of "Miner": "I think, this account allows us to believe that we have opportunity to pass further". The winner of this couple in 1/8 finals will meet in dvukhraundovy duel the winner vapors "Aston Willa" - CSKA. In the first time Brazilian Lav rammed defense of anglisyky club, in the second owners carried out striking combination with Carew's biting shot. The victorious goal of Ukrainian Tymoschuk in a match with the German "Stuttgart" caused euphoria in fans of "Bavaria" where the captain of "Zenith" passes this summer. It is a pity only that in reciprocal game Anatolshy won't play from - for next "mustard plaster".
In my opinion, now prematurely to rub hands in an anticipation of an exit of "Metalworker" and "Miner" in the following stage of a cup. As well as early to write off Kiev "Dynamo" with the account. Rivals at our clubs - authoritative clubs of the European level and as will play ours in return matches difficult to predict. It is better to hope simply that we and do.
In the table of coefficients of UEFA Ukraine came nearer in a pobitiya of a record indicator of a season 2004/05 when five Ukrainian clubs gathered together 40, 5 points. Nowadays on the account of four clubs - 38, 5 points. In "overall ranking" of a season 2008/09 Ukraine with coefficient 9, 625 bypassed Germany (9, 062) and came to the fourth line, conceding now only to Spain (10, 687), England (10, 111) and Italy (9, 875).
