Sikan scores to give Shakhtar shock win against Barcelona

Danylo Sikan’s towering header gave Shakhtar Donetsk a 1-0 win against LaLiga champions Barcelona in their Champions League Group H clash on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old forward gave the Ukrainian side, playing in Hamburg, a shock lead in the 40th minute against the five-time European champions who dominated possession throughout the match.

Sikan jumped behind defender Andreas Christensen to meet a Giorgi Gocholeishvili cross from the right touchline and nod the ball just out of reach of Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the Barca goal.

Barcelona still top Group H with nine points from four games, three ahead of Porto and Shakhtar. The Portuguese side have a game in hand and face Royal Antwerp, who have no points, later on Tuesday.
