Winner of the match 1-0, Shakhtar strongly condemned these actions in a statement and called for measures to end any form of discrimination in the stadiums. "Racism is a shame. Together we have to fight it every day, every minute and every second", responded Shakhtar Donetsk's Portuguese coach Luis Castro, who lent his support to his players."Football is not a question of racism", simply reacted Dynamo Kiev on Twitter.
As a reminder, last week a case of racism had marked the Serie A. At a meeting between theHellas Verona and Brescia, Mario Balotelli, victim of racist songs, had sent the ball towards the supporters of Hellas, before walking behind the goal as if he wanted to abandon the game. The match resumed after the stadium announcer read a message.
