Venue: Chornomorets Stadium (Odessa).
Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kiev play against each other on Saturday, 21st July 2018 for the Super Cup title in a dress rehearsal for the new domestic season.
The super cup has only been created since 2004 but Shakhtar already have won this 8 times and they will be looking to add to this on Saturday evening.
In recent years Shakhtar have always been linked with Brazilian players and that hasn’t changed for this season even if they have sold Fred to Manchester United for 60 million euros. They have brought in four new Brazilian players in Fernando, Maycon, Junior Moraes and Marquinhos, three of those four signings are forwards and Shakhtar have made a clear statement that they want to win the Ukrainian league once again.
Dynamo Kiev have had a successful pre-season where they remained unbeaten from 7 games played scoring 19 goals in those games including one match where they beat SV Telfs 9-0. There is no love lost between these teams but Dynamo will still be the outsiders to win this game.
