Keep making history. Sheriff Tiraspol extended his good time in Europe by beating Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 in its debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage with Gustavo Dulanto as the starter.
The Transnistrian team won 2-0 with goals from Adama Traoré and Momo Yansane, both at the center of the Brazilian Cristiano.
And Gustavo Dulanto? The Peruvian played the 90 minutes and wore the captain’s armband in the last minutes after the change of Colombian Frank Castañeda.
His performance in the field deserves a separate point: Averaged 77% accuracy on the pass, in addition to achieving 6 recoveries, 5/9 wins, 1 key pass, 3 takes, 3 blocked shots and 7 punts against Shakhtar.
The Sheriff’s next challenge will be even more complicated, but if this team knows something, it is to overcome them. It is his turn to visit Real Madrid on September 28, the most winning club in the Champions League.
