Snow prevented the Cup of Ukraine matches
According to the calendar, winter has begun only now, but its first interventions into the lives of Ukrainians were long before that. The next turn was football: two of the three matches in the Datagroups of the Cup of Ukraine, which were to take place on November 30, did not take place.
The first game was canceled is Poltava - Shakhtar, which was to take place at 13:00. This decision was made by the main referee of the meeting, Sergei Berizko after the inspection of the coverage of the stadium "Lokomotiv", noting that the lawn is completely frozen, so holding a match under such conditions can lead to numerous injuries to the players.
Following the Berizka decision to cancel the match was made by the referee of the meeting of Naftovik-Ukrnafta - Dynamo Yaroslav Kozik, who in the morning suggested such a development. Shakhtar and Dynamo have returned to Kiev, and the Football Federation will now find out who is to blame for the disruption of two matches, as the poor condition of the lawns is quite common for Ukraine, and the draw was held a month ago. Therefore, the responsibility of the FFU, which is not concerned about changing the calendar or venue, or clubs that did not prepare the arena, will be considered by the committee.
The only match that still took place on Wednesday was Dnipro - Vorskla. The hosts of the field managed to beat the Poltava team for the second time in a month, again snatching a strong-willed victory; this time the only goal was scored in the 74th minute by Balaniuk. The semifinals of this draw will be the twelfth for Dnipro. It should be noted that only three times before that the team went to the main match for the Cup, where all times conceded to Donetsk Shakhtar.
The second semifinalist of the Datagroup of the Cup of Ukraine - "Nikolaev", who in the match on November 26 sensationally beat at home Mariupol "Illichivets".
