Shakhtar Donetsk eliminates Marseille

Latest update : 2009-04-16

After Kiev's victory over Paris, another Ukrainian club, Shakhtar Donetsk, once again got the better of a French team. Their 2-1 victory over Marseille allows them to advance to the UEFA Cup semi-finals.

REUTERS - Shakhtar Donetsk won 2-1 at Olympique Marseille on Thursday to set up a UEFA Cup semi-final with fellow Ukrainians Dynamo Kiev.

 

Shakhtar, who won the first leg 2-0, opened the scoring in Marseille through Fernandinho, the Brazilian forward breaking down the left to convert from a tight angle on the half-hour.
 

Marseille, who dominated throughout but wasted many chances, levelled just before halftime thanks to forward Hatem Ben Arfa but Donetsk snatched the winner through Luiz Adriano deep in stoppage time.

 

Shakhtar's reward for knocking out the 1993 European champions is a tie against Dynamo, who beat Paris St Germain 3-0 on aggregate.
