Лига Европы: Представляем соперников "Зари" и "Шахтера"

FC “Zarya”

This year the draw for the group rounds of Euro cups work for Ukrainian teams is very interesting.

Yesterday the teams in the Champions League has given to Kiev “Dynamo”. There the structure is very solid and, more importantly, quite passable. In the Europa League have been a little bit different situation. But no less interesting.

Let’s start with Shakhtar. Shakhtar, of course, there are other tasks to go in the playoffs. And because of this, we will proceed in the discussion of rivals.

Лига Европы: Представляем соперников "Зари" и "Шахтера"

Performance at the match Shakhtar – Braga

Braga, Portugal

Champion Of Portugal – 1
Cup Of Portugal – 2

Coach: Jose Peseiro

Shakhtar and Braga are old friends. The Pitmen will play its fifth and sixth match against the Portuguese team. What, most recently, the teams met in the same Europa League in the playoffs. Then the “miner” has confidently won both matches. And at the same time, has chosen a new coach.

Before the draw Fonseca said that I would not like to meet with Braga because of feelings for the home team. But fate decided to make fun of your coach and he will have to try to beat a team that clearly has lost after the departure of Paulo.

Gent, Belgium

Champion Of Belgium -1
Belgian Cup 2

Coach: Hein Vanhassel

And with this team, Shakhtar played at the end of June in preparation for the season. In sparring, the Pitmen won 2-0. But the result gives little information about the future of Shakhtar’s rival.

As any modern Belgian club “Gent” collect the highly world young talents and tries to uncover its composition. This approach allowed the team to finish in second place in the tournament of the championship of Belgium. But the playoffs “Gent” was only third, behind Anderlecht and Brugge. Of strong players is to provide a striker Coulibaly, who plays for the national team of Belgium.

“Konyaspor, Turkey

Coach: Aykut Kocaman

The least experienced in the European Cup team. The Turks won at the domestic level, in addition to the First League. Came to Europe for the first time. So, they need to take experience. Moreover, this season one is not very experienced Turkish team problems “Shakhtar” could not create.

Now look at group a where they will play the “Zarya” Lugansk. For this command Luhansk evrokompani this will be the first test of ambition and class. In Ukraine, Veedub and his boys managed to prove that you are quite mosney team. But in Europe, except for the hassle “Feyenord last season, remember nothing.

Jose Mourinho

“Manchester United”, England

Champion Of England – 20
The FA Cup – 12
Champions League – 3

Coach: Jose Mourinho

The game against man UTD is probably the biggest gift for “Dawn”, which could give the Europa League. Whatever place in the standings is not occupied at United, he’s always more space in the Champions League than anywhere else. And now the taste of the Champions League will try and Lugansk “dawn”.

It is likely that the DOJ will bet on the English Premier League and the Europa League will play with the second squad. However, the level of the composition of Mourinho allows to count on success both domestically and in European competition. And try your hand on a background of giants like Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan, Rooney, De GEA and others will be just incredibly interesting.

Fenerbahce, Istanbul, Turkey

Champion Turkey – 19
The Turkish Cup – 6

Coach: Dick Advocaat

In Istanbul, all teams have big ambitions. But Fenerbahce always abound. Otherwise, why the whole year trying unsuccessfully to poach from Donetsk Lucescu, then get a solid dick Advocaat. Despite the fact that the composition of the Turks have a decent number of players, albeit in age, but the top level. “Dawn” will keep such masters as van der wiele, Martin Skrtel, Tops, Miroslav Stoch and Robin van Persie. A similar experience struggles harden the young players of “Dawn”.

“Feyenord Rotterdam, Netherlands

Champion Of The Netherlands – 14
Cup Netherlands – 12
Champions League – 1
UEFA Cup – 2

Coach: Giovanni van Bronckhorst

Last season a young team Giovanni van Bronckhorst took third place in the Dutch championship. But hope that with the Dutch “Dawn” will be easier, not worth it. Although the Dutch have one more favor before the team Vernidub. Last year in the playoffs of qualification of League of Europe “the dawn” first played a draw at home with the Dutch. And after away lost 0-3, equalized the score and managed to miss at the last minute. This time, this can not be allowed.

Of the players in the present squad of Feyenoord” it is worth noting the most experienced captain Dirk Keith, Swedes Gustafson and Hansson and talantlivogo Peruvian Renato Tapia.
