Lyon is the main rival of Shakhtar in fight for the 2nd place in group of the Champions League: his players are three times dearer

Lyon is the main competitor of Shakhtar on the budget, transfers and names of players in fight for the second place and getting into the playoffs of LCh. At least British bookmakers see "weavers" the main favourite on an exit in 1/8 finals from the second place.

the Cost of list of Lyon is estimated at 335 million euros. Not one billion Manchester City, but also not 214 million Hoffenheim or 102 million Shakhtar.

the dearest player of the French club - the 25-year-old captain, the productive midfielder Nabil Fekir which already half a year passes into ranks of grandees of the nuclear submarine, but won't reach the destination in any way. Трансфермаркт has allocated him with the 65-million price tag. for comparison, dearest Marlos, Tyson and Ismailia pull

At Shakhtar only for 11 million euros. One more with two-digit cost - Taras Stepanenko (10 million). Lyon has the players estimated at least for 10 million euros, it is more - whole <>
the Zhenezio Team hasn't bad amplified in the summer. Lyon has spent 42 million euros for transfers. In particular, all the cool 22-year-old forward Moussa Dembele whom Celtic has sold for 22 million euros was more expensive. Also for 6,5 have got from future rival of Manchester City central defender Jason Denayer. The Shakhtar has sold players for 59 million euros (here only Fred has helped balance), and was bought on <16,>
Lyon has earned much more from transfers: at least 90 million euros. What Mariano Díaz's return to Real for 21 million is necessary or for I 20-weave 16-year-old Willem Goebbels's transition to Monaco.

the Rival of Shakhtar has many nicknames: lions, weavers, children, aristocrats, Olympians.

Shakhtar will meet Lyon for the first time in history. Against clubs from France Donetsk residents play rather seldom: the Champions League battled only against PSG. Have lost both matches dry in the 2015th. In the Cup to the UEFA/the Europa League took off from Monaco and Lille, passed Marseille, and at a group stage beat Rennes, Nancy and Toulouse.

"Children" were stronger than Dynamo in the Champions League (both times at a group stage in the 2006th) and in the Europa League have beaten out Chornomorets (1:0, 0:0 in 1/16 finals in the 2014th year). Didn't lose to the Ukrainian clubs yet.

the Previous 3 performances of residents of Lyons in the Champions League came to the end with fiasco: a departure in the qualification playoffs, 4 and 3 places. Lyon played the last time in LCh playoffs 6 years ago. And that the French were embarrassed - have taken off for 1/8 finals from the Cyprian APOEL. But in those days "lions" left 9 years in a row at least in 1/8 finals.

Gonalons, Lyakazett, Tolisso, Umtiti, Díaz - the list of stars which Lyon has released for 2 summers impresses. By some miracle Fekir remained in team still at least for half a year. "Weavers" became similar to Benfica, Porto in recent years and... Shakhtar. They bring up players of a top class and sell for big millions. And live.

However, if the Shakhtar earns from the brought Brazilians, Lyon receives benefit from own pupils. From all players listed in the previous paragraph only Mariano Díaz has come from Real. The others - all the роднень
