Shakhtar Donetsk has learned the calendar of its matches in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League of the 2023/24 season.

According to the results of the draw, the champion of Ukraine got into Group H, where he will play against the Spanish "Barcelona", the Portuguese "Porto" and the Belgian "Antwerp".

The Pitmen have already published the schedule of their matches in the main club European tournament. Patrick van Leeuwen's team will have to start on September 19 with a nominally home match against Porto.

The Pitmen's games against Barcelona will be paired and will take place on October 25 and November 7.

It should be noted that due to the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian occupiers, Shakhtar will nominally play home matches of the Champions League group stage in Hamburg, Germany, at the Volksparkstadion stadium.
