Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed their upcoming Champions League game against Lyon has been moved to Kiev

The Ukrainian Premier League leaders normally host their home matches in Kharkiv rather than Kiev.

However, the destination of Donetsk’s Group F showdown with Lyon has been in doubt for the past few weeks due to Ukraine’s tense relationship with Russia.

“The UEFA have decided that the Champions League group stage game against Lyon will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev,” read a statement on the club website.

Shakhtar are third in Group F and two points off second-place Lyon heading into the final game next week.

Paulo Fonseca’s side needs to win to progress to the knockout stages with leaders Manchester City out of reach with a five-point advantage.
