Nigeria forward, Kayode Olanrewaju, is on the verge of securing the domestic double with his Ukrainian club, Shakhtar Donetsk. Shakhtar is set to face Verez in a league game on Sunday at the Oblansky Sport Complex Metalist, Kharkiv. The team currently leads the league table with 51 points, six more than Dynamo Kiev, their closest challenger, with two games remaining before the end of the season. A victory against Verez would secure the title ahead of the final game next weekend.
Shakhtar Donetsk recently won their 12th Ukrainian Cup title on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory against Dynamo Kiev at the Dnipro Arena. The achievement follows their success in clinching the domestic double last season. Kayode Olanrewaju, on loan from English Premier League champions Manchester City, has contributed to Shakhtar’s success, scoring two goals in four league appearances since joining the club.
As the team aims for another impressive feat, Kayode’s performance has been pivotal to Shakhtar Donetsk’s pursuit of excellence in Ukrainian football. The 25-year-old forward’s contributions highlight the strength and depth of talent within the Shakhtar squad as they seek to establish themselves as a dominant force in Ukrainian football.
