Shakhtar Donetsk won their ninth Ukrainian Premier League title following a 3-1 win over Zorya Lugansk at Cherkassy on Sunday but there were no spectators to share the celebrations.

Shakhtar were forced to play their crucial game at Cherkassy's neutral venue after the Ukraine Football Federation decided that all remaining championship matches be played behind closed doors.

Shakhtar have 62 points from 27 matches and stay nine points ahead of second-placed Dnepropetrovsk, who play Vorskla Poltava later Sunday. Brazilian Luiz Adriano scored twice while his compatriot Eduardo added another to secure Shakhtar's win. Zelko Lubenovic was on target for Zorya.
