Sergey Palkin is proud of the team after playing in Europe.

Shakhtar managed to get into the Europa League from the death group. The team beat Real twice, took two points in the matches with Inter. Palkin believes that it is appropriate to assess Shakhtar’s performance in comparison with its neighbors. They have nothing to brag about.

“We must compare ourselves to our own kind. With clubs located in countries of about the same level. I think these are Eastern European clubs. If you look at how many points all the participants who play have earned, then Krasnodar – 5 points, Lokomotiv – 3, Zenit – 1, Dynamo – 4, Ferencvaros – 1, and Shakhtar – 8 “, – Palkin is quoted by the official website of Football 1,2,3 TV channels.


Shakhtar will recognize their opponents in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League today. It is interesting that in the Ukrainian league the team is still in second place, behind Dynamo.
