Shakhtar Donetsk drew in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 16 in the 2022/2023 season. The match against Dutch side Feyenoord ended 1-1 at the Wojska Polskiego Stadium in Warsaw

The first five minutes were played at a leisurely pace. The favourites played the ball for a long time in their own half of the pitch, fighting off the Ukrainians' pressure.

"Feyenoord tried to get past the Ukrainian defence with dangerous shots. Gradually, the Dutch advantage became more and more apparent. The game was going on in dangerous proximity to Trubin's goal and the Ukrainian goalkeeper had to enter the game more and more often.

The Ukrainian players occasionally failed to keep up with their opponents and were forced to stop them only by breaking the rules.

Shakhtar needed more movement in the centre of the pitch, but the Orange and Blacks were noticeably inferior to their opponents in this component. Towards the end of the half, the game moved to the central circle, with no obvious threats to the goal.

Feyenoord's left flank was very active, where the Dutch players tried to find their leader Malasia Tyrell. Jovicevic's team also made mistakes.

The Netherlands played with a high line of defence, and in those moments there was a sharp lack of Mykhailo Mudryk, who could break into free space, straining the opposition's defence.
