While of course it is remarkable that the tables were left the same it is due to something not-so "exciting" as with the exception of one match all were draws with four scoreless. That must be some sort of record however in the "other" decision of the weekend Metalist Kharkiv defeated Metalurh Donetsk 2-0. Zhovto-Syni left the scoring till the final four minutes of time with Serbian international Aleksandar Trišović (Тришович) being the benificiary of a defensive mishap as he pulled in a long ball near the box and quickly scored. Two minutes later a beautiful crossing pass Andriy Koniushenko found on the back post for a clinical finish.
Possibly the biggest piece of news is that Shakhtar Donetsk, after a horribly lethargic 0-0 draw to Kharkiv is said to have offered a managerial position to Juande Ramos, recently let-go by Tottenham of England's Premier League.
Elsewhere in the Ukrainian Premier League Chornomorets played Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk to a 1-1 draw with international capped veteran scoring. Andriy Vorobei opened the scoring at the seven minute mark for Dnipriany before Oleksandr Kosyrin tied it seven minutes later.
