    Time:90'
    • Partizan Belgrade
    • Shakhtar Donetsk
    • 90' And that's the final whistle. Shakhtar have won 3-0.
    • 88' Partizan hit the post! The ball is hit from distance and it strikes the outside of the post and falls to Cleo. Cleo stabs the ball goalwards but Pyatov does well to smother the shot and the danger is gone.
    • 85' Shakhtar still committing a number of men forward as they search for a fourth. This time the Ukrainian side lose possession.
    • 83' Partizan sub: Illiev on, Ilic off
    • 80' Partizan still battling for that elusive goal, but they are unlikely to get it. They have been very poor tonight.
    • 78' Shakhtar sub: Teixeira on, Jadson off
    • 75' Shakhtar sub: Vitsenets on, Gai off
    • 73' Partizan sub: Davidov on, Moreira off
    • 71' Stojkovic caught Eduardo as he tried to stop Eduardo scoring and Eduardo is receiving treatment for a knee injury.
    • 70' Eduardo has tapped in after good work by Srna and Willian on the right, whose low cross was tapped in by Eduardo. But Eduardo is injured after scoring.
    • 69' GOAL! Eduardo makes it 3-0
    • 69' Partizan huffing and puffing but not really able to trouble Shakhtar at the moment. The away side look comfortable.
    • 67' Chygrynskiy sees yellow for Shakhtar
    • 65' Partizan sub: Medo on, Petrovic off
    • 63' Partizan win a corner but the ball is hacked clear. There was a moment of uncertainty there though.
    • 62' Shakhtar sub: Eduardo on, Douglas Costa off
    • 60' But it's fired embarrassingly high over the bar.
    • 59' Shakhtar have another free kick 25 or so yards out.
    • 58' Srna drags a cross back to the edge of the box from the right and Jadson fires a low powerful shot first time into the back of the net. Far too easy, terrible marking.
    • 57' GOAL! Jadson makes it 2-0 to Shakhtar
    • 55' Petrovic has caught Luiz Adriano in the face with his forearm. Handbags ensue.
    • 54' Confusion as the ball is swept into the net by Stepanenko after Shakhtar's corner ricochets off Krstajic's knee into the path of Stepanenko. But there was confusion as Rats was off the field receiving treatment for a head injury and, with Rats off the pitch, Shakhtar took full advantage with Partizan napping.
    • 53' GOAL! Stepanenko has scored for Shakhtar!
    • 53' Good play by Shakhtar. Rats hesitates and his cross is cut out. He's won a corner nonetheless.
    • 51' Shakhtar counter attack but Willian rather wastes an opportunity to open Partizan up. He delayed, and delayed, and delayed, until the chance to release Luiz Adriano had gone. Poor by the Brazilian.
    • 49' Stepanenko sees yellow for a reckless challenge on Ilic.
    • 48' But it fails to beat the first man. Not for the first time tonight.
    • 48' Shakhtar have a corner...
    • 47' Stefanovic makes a silly challenge and Jadson will whip in the free kick.
    • 46' Shakhtar get the second half underway.
    • 45' And that's half time in Serbia. It's goalless.
    • 45' Luiz Adriano makes space on the edge of the box and fires a superb shot just wide. A little more composure with his shot and that could have been a deserved opening goal for Shakhtar.
    • 43' Srna's teasing cross from the right is met by Stepanenko at the far post but he blazes over first time when he should have at least tested Stojkovic. Biggest chance of the half.
    • 41' And now Babovic is carded for something he must have said to the referee.
    • 39' Smiljanic is booked for a clear foul.
    • 37' Shakhtar undoubtedly the more accomplished of the two sides but they have not created enough and have wasted the chances they have. A first half lacking a cutting edge so far.
    • 35' Willian causing problems at the back for Partizan.
    • 33' Another wasted attack by Shakhtar, who had men forward. Douglas Costa finds Jadson on the left, who spoons his cross straight out of play.
    • 31' Torrential rain continues to lash down here. Conditions are not good.
    • 30' Shakhtar's Gai sees yellow for a blatent foul on Moreira.
    • 28' Babovic forces another Partizan corner but Gai gets it clear for Shakhtar.
    • 26' Magnificent strike from the free kick by Krstajic that Pyatov has to palm away. That was hit with some venom.
    • 25' Speaking of which, Cleo wins a free kick for Partizan 25 yards out.
    • 23' Cleo is at the centre of another good move for Partizan but he can't get on the end of Smijanic's cross from the right. Cleo causing problems.
    • 21' Cleo gets on the end of Ilic's cross from the left but the header drops wide. Cleo and Babovic got into each other's ways there.
    • 20' Handbags between Krystajic and Luiz Adriano.
    • 18' Stojkovic claims the corner to see off the danger. The initial shot by Gai was dangerous though.
    • 17' Excellent stop by Stojkovic after a good move by Shakhtar opens Partizan up. Corner.
    • 15' Babovic squeezes a cross in from the right but it's harmless. Partizan's early impetus has become impotent.
    • 14' Shakhtar really beginning to dictate the tempo of this one now.
    • 12' Impressive run by Douglas Costa who finds Rats on the left. Rats's cross from the left is cut out but Rats gets another bite at the cherry, but his shot is wide.
    • 10' Douglas Costa made his debut for Brazil last week vs Argentina, of course.
    • 9' Douglas Costa gets into a good position on the right but, as he skips into the box, goes down like a sack of potatoes.
    • 7' Shakhtar feeling their way into this one after Partizan's early dominance.
    • 5' Babovic in penalised for a push as he prepares to head Cleo's cross. Shakhtar still can't get out of their own half at the moment.
    • 4' Cleo fires a shot just over after a clever dinked cross from Stevanovic on the right. Partizan all over Shakhtar!
    • 3' The conditions are difficult tonight and Partizan are making the most of it so far.
    • 2' Krstaljic meets the corner and almost flicks it into the net! The ball is headed clear and Shakhtar can breathe again.
    • 1' Very early chance for Partizan and they have a corner.
    • 1' We are underway in a rainy Belgrade.
    • 19.40 The players are emerging from the tunnel. We are just a couple of minutes away from kick off.
    • 19.40 The Serbian champions did record a home win against their Ukrainian counterparts last season, however, and can also draw on their unbeaten home record in qualifying for this stage.
    • 19.30 PARTIZAN BELGRADE: Stojkovic, Stevanovic, Marko Jovanovic, Krstajic, Lazevski, Petrovic, Smiljanic, Babovic, Moreira, Sasa Ilic, Cleo. Subs: Zivkovic, Miljkovic, Medo, Boya, Savic, Davidov, Iliev. SHAKHTAR DONESTSK: Pyatov, Srna, Chygrynskiy, Rakitskiy, Rat, Gai, Stepanenko, Douglas Costa, Jadson, Willian, Luiz Adriano. Subs: Khudzamov, Kucher, Eduardo, Alex Teixeira, Ischenko, Vitsenets, Moreno
    • 19.15 Shakhtar, who joined Arsenal FC on nine points at the top of the table with victory against the Gunners last time out, earned the win through Darijo Srna's expert free-kick in the 71st minute.
    • 19.10 Partizan's disappointing group stage campaign began with a 1-0 defeat in Donetsk on 15 September.
    • 19.00 With two matches left to play, Partizan sit bottom of Group H and cannot qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League. But for Shakhtar, a win tonight could see them move ahead of Arsenal at the top of the group.
