Disgusting scenes in Ukraine in the Shakhtar Donetsk-Dynamo Kyiv game.— Kaustubh Pandey (@Kaus_Pandey17) November 10, 2019
Taison crying after being racially abused. Despite being the victim, he's sent off for being the victim. Like Balotelli, I hope this case gets the attention racism screams out for.

This is not the first incident when players trapped into racist chants by the fans. In 2015, Dynamo Kyiv was ordered by UEFA to play two games behind doors because four black spectators were attacked at their home ground in a match against Chelsea.
