Fenerbahce vs Shakhtar by Mijkel
Fenerbahce changed the coach and brought on some big names this summer. The new coach, Vitor Pereira won titles with Porto and Olympiakos domestically and looks to win some in Turkey too. Fenerbahce sent Emenike on loan and Kuyt left for Feyenoord. But they brought on van Persie from United, Nani who had a decent season in Sporting, Simon Kjaer to bolt defence and Fernandao who scored 22 league goals for Bursaspor last season. We probably wont see RvP play, but the other three should start tomorrow.
Fenerbahce played nice offensive friendlies: 3-2 vs Sivasspor, 0-1 vs Dnipro, 3-1 vs Guimaraes, 3-2 vs Olympiakos and 3-1 vs Marseille. So some of the new guys have had a chance to settle in to the formation and scoring 3 goals in four of the five friendlies gives some promise.
Shakhtar sold Douglas Costa and Luiz Adriano. Alex Teixeira seems to have picked up some form having scored 4 goals from 2 matches in Ukrainian Premier League. They too played friendlies earlier in July and showed attacking play. 3-0 vs Monaco, 2-3 vs Sion, 3-1 vs Basel. Also scored at least two in each competetive match this season.
So hoping to see offensive play from both teams.
