Sheriff Tiraspol, the football champion of Moldova, defeated, with the score of 2-0, the team Shakhtar Donetsk, the vice-champion of Ukraine. The match was played in Tiraspol.

Sheriff opened the scoring in the 16th minute, through Adama Traore, and in the 62nd minute Momo Yansane, from Cristiano’s pass, made it 2-0.

Even in today’s match of the Tiraspol team, coached by the Ukrainian Yuriy Vernydub, no Moldovan player was part. Sheriff’s first 11 consisted of G. Athanasiadis (Greece), Arboleda (Colombia), A. Traore (Mali), F. Castañeda (Colombia), F. Peixoto (Brazil), Cristiano Da Silva (Brazil), J Yakhshiboev (Uzbekistan), E. Addo (Ghana), D. Kolovos (Greece), S. Thill (Luxembourg), G.

This season Sheriff Tiraspol qualified, for the first time for a team from the Moldovan championship, in the groups of the most important European interclub competition – European Champions League.

Following the qualification in groups, Sheriff secured a check for over 16 million euros. The amount could increase if Sheriff will record positive results in the 6 matches it will play in the group and, subsequently, in case of qualification, in the eliminatory matches.

Following the draw, Sheriff Tiraspol was assigned to a group that also includes Real Madrid (Spain), Inter Milan (Italy), and Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine). The next match will be with Real Madrid.

The Tiraspol Sheriff’s Club, founded in 1997, is controlled by the millionaire Victor Gușan, who also owns the Sheriff holding company – the largest company in the Breakaway Transnistrian region. Sheriff practically controls the main economic activities in the self-proclaimed Transnistrian republic, being involved in the trade of wholesale and retail food (through the supermarket chain he owns), fuels, medicines, and other products. Sheriff also carries out car trading activities, but also activities in the field of construction and real estate.
