The Under-19s take all three points and move second in Group D of the Youth League.

A hard-fought win for the Under-19s against Shakhtar Donetsk in matchday four of the Youth League Group Stage. The youngsters are now in second place inthe group thanks to this important victory, three points behind Inter, and still unbeaten at the Alfredo Di Stéfano in the competition. It was Aranda who got the goal for Hernán Pérez's side.

The visitors came out looking to apply a lot of pressure on the home side as Siheiev tested Dani Vicente with 17 minute on the clock. His shot from the edge of the area was easily saved by the goalkeeper. Aranda tried his luck ten minutes later, but his effort deflected off a defender and Puzankov got his hands to it. Losenko had the best chance of the game shortly after when his shot from a rebound went just over the bar, but the home side got into the flow of the game and hit back five minutes later.

As the half drew to a close, Aranda again drove into the box and was brought down by the opposition defender. The Real Madrid youngster appealed for a penalty, but the referee instead blew for half time.
