Shakhtar celebrate title with win
Shakhtar Donetsk marked their Superliga title in style as they came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Tavriya Symferopol on the final day of the season. Shakhtar wrapped up the title by beating closest rivals Dynamo Kiev in the capital derby on Wednesday night, but appeared to be taking a day off today as they slipped behind to goals from Zeljko Ljubenovic and Olexander Kovpak in the opening 25 minutes.
But Kostyantin Kravchenko scored in the 59th and 67th minutes to level it before Douglas Costa won it nine minutes from time. At the other end of the table, Kryvbas beat already-relegated Zakarpattya 3-1 to save themselves from the drop on the final day at the expense of Chornomorets, who are relegated by one point after only managing a 1-1 draw against Zarya Lugansk.
Zakarputtya took the lead at Kryvbas through Vladislav Mikulyak in only the 11th minute, but second half goals from Serhiy Motuz, Mykola Morozyuk and Dmitriy Lyopa got them the all-important victory. Chornomorets fell behind to Mykyta Kamenyuka's 41st minute goal and looked like losing until Anatoli Didenko briefly game them hope with an 86th minute equaliser.
Dynamo Kiev, already certain of second place, signed off with a 3-0 win over Metallurg Zaporizhzhya as Artem Milevskiy got a brace and Sergiy Kryvtsov put through his own net. Vinicius Fininho got the only goal as FC Metalist Kharkiv beat Arsenal Kiev 1-0.
Metallurg Donetsk wrapped up their campaign with a 5-0 thrashing of Obolon Kiev as Velizar Dimitrov got two, the first a penalty, while Jose Soares also had a brace and Ciprian Tanasa got the other. Illichivets Mariupol came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Karpaty Lviv, who led with first half goals from Nemanja Tubich and Samson Godwin before Oleksandr Kasyan and Konstantyn Yaroshenko hit back in the second half. Serhiy Nazarenko's late strike cancelled out Aleksandr Matveev's opener and saw Dnipro take a point from a 1-1 draw with Vorskla.
