After the first matches, I expected a lot of emotions in the Shakhtar-Monaco match. In the first match, the Ukrainian team was better, winning 1-0 in France and had to defend a positive result in the second leg. However, Niko Kovac’s players recovered from the loss very quickly – Ben Yedder scored in the 18th minute. Even before the break, the French hit the net for the second time.

But at the beginning of the match, the players had a great chance Sherif. Teal received the ball in the penalty area but only hit the post. Since then, Dynamo players have had the advantage, but not much has come of it. Much could have changed in the 77th minute. Orsić hit the net, but the referee decided that the Dinamo player was in an offside position and rejected the goal. Until the end of the match the result did not change and the sensation became a reality – the Sheriff of Tiraspol was promoted to the group stage. Champions League.

At this point, Salzburg was already 4-1 on aggregate and there was nothing that could threaten Matthias Geisel’s team. The Danes tried to reduce losses even more – in the 62nd minute Maxo scored a goal, but this goal only reduced the scale of the defeat. The score remained the same until the end of the match.
