Shakhtar Donetsk director Dario Srna has warned Real Madrid and the other teams in the group that they will fight to the end.

Due to the war in Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk will not be able to play their home ties in their homeland, instead relocating to Warsaw. 

Srna said: “There are no easy groups in the Champions League. We will fight to the last.

“Real Madrid are Real Madrid. We already played against Celtic twice before. RB Leipzig are a good team.

“So let’s put it this way – the draw could have been worse, it could have been better. The most important thing is to enjoy the games that are waiting.

“Unfortunately, there will not be full stands in Ukraine, but I am sure there will be in Warsaw. Many of our fans will come and they deserve, like the whole of Ukraine, that we demonstrate good, bright football, so they get pleasure from games.”
