Poltava “Vorskla” in the second round of the group stage of the Europa League did not hold a victory over sporting.
“Vorskla” already on 10-th minute managed to come out ahead – Kulach picked up the ball near the penalty box with a great shot and curled the ball into the far corner.
Poltava kept sporting to their goal and tried to positional attacks to look for weaknesses in the defense of the Portuguese.
Just before the whistle for the break, the defense of “Vorskla” failed – Nani has a shot from the goal line, but Shust panicked and confidently parried a shot into the near corner.
The entire second half, “Vorskla” spent in defence. While sporting only had one real scoring chance – and again brilliantly played Shust is not allowed Montero to score a goal-handsome kick.
