    • FC Nordsjælland
    • Shakhtar Donetsk
    • FULL TIME: Nordsjælland 2-5 Shakhtar Donetsk. Thanks for joining us on a dramatic night here.
    • 90+3' Srna strikes the free kick and it’s just wide. That could be that.
    • 90+2' Parkhurst now booked for a challenge on Eduardo. Free kick.
    • 90+1' This will do Shakhtar’s confidence some good. Only their second away win other than in Turin.
    • 90' Three added minutes here.
    • 89' Kucher and Christiansen now clash as the match draws to an ill tempered close. Both players booked.
    • 88' Ticinovic has a cynical swipe on Costa and he too gets away with it.
    • 87' Adu lucky not to be booked again as he dangles a leg out to Costa.
    • 86' There is no doubt that Shakhtar have been superior but their opener will leave a bad taste in the mouth.
    • 85' Shakhtar sub: Willian of for Ilsinho
    • 84' Willian keeping the ball in the corner. Fernandinho trying to create a sixth. Free kick Shakhtar.
    • 82' Nordsjælland sub: Aynaoglu for John.
    • 81' Shakhtar sub: Eduardo on for Adriano.
    • 80' GOAL Shakhtar! And it’s Adriano with an undeserved hat-trick as substitute Costa knocks the ball down to him.
    • 79' Hats off to Nordsjælland, they are still pressing forward and trying to pull at least one back. They win a corner.
    • 78' This has been a cracking match with goals aplenty but sadly it will be remembered for that moment of madness from Adriano.
    • 77' Shakhtar sub: Texeira off for Costa.
    • 76' Shakhtar content to take the sting out of the game and play it all the way back to the keeper.
    • 75' Shakhtar about to make a change of their own.
    • 74' Nordsjælland sub: Nordstrand off for Ticinovic.
    • 72' Foul on Fernandinho. Free kick Shakhtar.
    • 71' Glorious chance for Nordstrand from Christiansen’s through ball but he fails to tap it into an empty net. What a chance!
    • 70' Mkhitaryan bursts through the middle and feeds Adriano but his chip can’t find Willian.

    • 67' Adriano booked for a challenge on Stokholm and he is booked to loud cheers.
    • 66' Stokholm crosses for Christiansen but he gets his header all wrong and it balloons over. Half chance.
    • 65' Great run and pass from Fernandinho and he nearly puts Adriano in for a hat-trick. Good defending.
    • 64' Adu fouls Fernandinho and goes into the book. First yellow.
    • 63' Sloppy play from Okore and it’s out for a throw.
    • 62' Great run from Fernandinho and he pulls it back to Mkhitaryan but Nordsjælland manage to scramble it away.
    • 61' Shakhtar beginning to dominate proceedings now and you fear for the home side. It won’t be a popular win though!
    • 59' And news from Turin, Chelsea are now 2-0 down. You can follow that match here.
    • 58' Nordsjælland sub: Christiansen on for Christensen
    • 57' As it stands, Shakhtar top the group on 10 points from Juventus on 9 who still lead Chelsea.
    • 56' Nordsjælland coming back into this and enjoying a good spell of possession.
    • 54' Great chance for Lorentzen to pull one back from Parkhurst’s cross but he pokes it wide.
    • 54' Willian has been running things in the midfield since the break. John goes down. Free kick.
    • 52' GOAL Shakhtar! And it’s Adriano again, played in by Texeira.

    • 47' Bright start for Nordsjælland, doing all the pressing.
    • 46' Successive fouls from Fernandinho to open proceedings.
    • 45' We’re back underway here. What else will happen in this incredible match?
    • 45+2' HALF TIME: Nordsjælland 2-2 Shakhtar Donetsk. What a half it has been!
    • 45+1' Free kick Shakhtar and they are all over the Danes at the moment.
    • 45' Two added minutes here.
    • 44' It actually looked like Hansen was wrong footed and it came off the back of Fernandinho.
    • 43' GOAL Shakhtar! Nordsjælland can’t clear their lines and Willian smashes home after Fernandinho’s cut back.
    • 41' A lovely take from Mkhitaryan and he strikes it across Hansen and just wide of the post. Close again.
    • 40' It really has been a breathless first half. Will we have more in the closing five minutes of the half?
    • 39' Willian cuts back to Mkhitaryan who shoots just wide of the post! Close to 2-2.
    • 38' Patient build-up play from Shakhtar as the boos ring out.
    • 37' And Juventus have scored against Chelsea, which puts the Italians top of the group standings as we stand.
    • 36' Willian has barely been an influence at all but for that pass back that his own player intercepted!
    • 34' Good ball from Adu to Willian and Shakhtar defend the danger. Whistles every time the Ukrainians get the ball now.
    • 33' Surely coach Mircea Lucescu should have let Nordsjælland score. Keeper Hansen thought Adriano was joking when he took it past him!
    • 32' Really, Nordsjælland should be 2-0 up here as Fernandinho is flagged offside.
    • 31' This could boil over quickly now as Adriano and Runje clash.
    • 30' Well quite extraordinary stuff here! The home side deservedly lead now.
    • 29' GOAL Nordsjælland! They have justifiably scored a great goal anyway through Lorentzen who turned and smashed it in off the bar.
    • 28' Well controversy here! It looked like they initially were going to let Stokholm score but they instead tackled him. Scandalous stuff here.
    • 27' So the goal stands but do Shakhtar now let Nordsjælland score?
    • 25' GOAL Shakhtar! Controversy here as Willian plays it back to the Nordsjælland keeper but Adriano collects the ball and scores! Terrible sportsmanship.
    • 24' A coming together between Fernandinho and Nordstrand, who hits the turf. He blatantly walked across him, the Shakhtar man.
    • 23' GOAL Nordsjælland! It’s another great ball in from John and Nordstrand is unmarked to put it in the net. Poor defending.
    • 22' The Danes must believe after this first quarter that they are very capable of getting something here.
    • 21' Nordstrand almost plays in Adu but Shakhtar scramble clear and break dangerously. How quickly they break.
    • 20' POSSESSION: Nordsjælland 55% - 45% Shakhtar.
    • 19' Shakhtar with the clear cut chances but Nordsjælland with all the possession.
    • 18' It could easily be 1-1 as Nordsjælland win a dangerous free kick for a foul by Kucher.
    • 17' A great save from Pyatov denies Runje straight from the corner but the referee has blown for a foul by Okore. Looked nothing in that.
    • 16' Great ball in from John and a miscues clearance from Rats that could have gone anywhere. Lots of action at the moment. Corner.
    • 15' Wonderful ball from Willian finds Rats and he puts it on a plate for Mkhitaryan to score but amazingly he misses a virtually open goal! What a miss.
    • 14' Lovely football from Shakhtar. Texeira gets to the byline and stays on his feet when he could have gone down. He passes it straight across the face of goal but nobody there.
    • 13' Two very patient teams here but Nordsjælland, is must be said, are on top.
    • 12' Foul by Kucher on Runje. Lucky not to get a yellow for that, leading with his studs.
    • 11' Stokholm comes forward to set up another attack. Very encouraging for the home side.
    • 10' Good pressure from Fernandinho wins a throw but he slips and gifts back a goal kick.
    • 9' The home side definitely enjoying the lion’s share of possession at the moment. Lorentzen plays it to Nordstrand who is very nearly in on goal. Kucher does very well to get back and get a toe in.
    • 8' Joshua John getting a lot of success on the left hand side at the moment getting crosses in. Bright start.
    • 6' Dangerous cross from John meant for Nordstrand but Shakhtar head clear the danger.
    • 5' Nordsjælland keeping the ball well at the moment but Fernandinho comes away with it.
    • 4' A great save from Petr Cech has kept it level in the other Group E match. We’ll keep you updated on that one too. Shakhtar back on the offensive.
    • 3' Shot from Mkhitaryan and he wins a corner. It falls for Fernandinho but there is a Nordsjælland body in the way. Vital block.
    • 3' Mtiliga does well to win a corner as Kucher goes down clutching his heel. He’s back up again and Shakhtar clear the danger.
    • 2' Just under 18,000 in attendance here. Shakhtar already on the offensive. Adriano caught offside but he looked level.
    • 1' Referee Antony Gautier blows the whistle and gets us underway here in Copenhagen. The pitch looks perfect. Shakhtar adopting an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation with Nordsjælland likewise.
    • 19.40 Only five minutes to kick off. MATCH ODDS: Nordsjælland (9/1) Shakhtar (1/3) Draw (4/1).
    • 19.35 Tonight’s other Group E fixture is between Juventus and Chelsea in Turin. Chelsea can do Shakhtar a favour by winning. You can keep an eye on that match here.
    • 19.30 Shakhtar danger man Alex Teixeira has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season, one more than his 2011/12 haul.
    • 19.25 Nordsjælland have a goal difference of -10, the joint worst in the competition with LOSC Lille and GNK Dinamo Zagreb.
    • 19.20 Nordsjælland managed only three shots when they met Shakhtar on Match Day One, but all of them were on target. Only Manchester City (33) have allowed the opposition more shots on target against them than Nordsjælland (32).
    • 19.15 Shakhtar have won all three matches they have played in European competition against Danish opposition but have won just one of their last six Champions League away games (W1 D1 L4).
    • 19.10 Mircea Lucescu (Shakhtar): "This is Nordsjælland's last Champions League match in Denmark and they will fight until the end. Nordsjælland do not have a great deal of experience as they are a young team and this season is their first taste of Champions League football. They made some bad mistakes in their last game in Turin but they are improving all the time and caused Chelsea and Juventus problems in previous matches. "
    • 19.05 Kasper Hjulmand (Nordsjælland): "We'll be giving everything we got, eating grass in pursuit of that winning feeling. We know we're not on the same level as the other teams in the group. Shakhtar are a fantastic side and probably the big favourites to progress. They have great attacking qualities and can come at us in a variety of ways. There are a few things we need to do better than we did in Turin. In the UEFA Champions League you have one, maybe two seconds to choose the best option."
    • 19.00 Midfielder Andreas Laudrup, son of Michael Laudrup, and winger Mikkel Beckmann are injured for Nordsjaelland and Shakhtar’s big news is that former Arsenal striker Eduardo drops to the bench with Henrikh Mkhitaryan featuring in his stead with Willian, Alex Teixeira and Douglas Costa behind.
    • 18.55 TEAMS: Nordsjælland: Hansen, Okore, Mtiliga, Parkhurst, Runje, Adu, Stokholm, Christensen, Lorentzen, Nordstrand, John. SUBS: Viladsen, Kildentoft, Gundelach, Ticinovic, Christiansen, Aynaoglu /// Shakhtar: Pyatov, Kucher, Rat, Rakitskiy, Stepanenko, Fernandinho, Willian, Alex Texeira, Srna, Adriano, Mkhitaryan. SUBS: Kanibolotskiy, Kryvtsov, Kobin, Gai, Douglas Costa, Ilsinho, Eduardo.
    • 18.50 Shakhtar won the previous meeting 2-0 at home in Donetsk and if they and Chelsea win tonight, both sides will progress to the last 16. Nordsjælland have been knocked out of the Champions League, but still have motivation to win as they have an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League if they win both remaining games and other results go their way. Check the Group E results and standings.

  2. Ok Adrianos goal was unsporting but with that aside I­ have been so impressed with Shakhtar this year. They­ look like they mean business & are going on a­ European rampage. Theyre a very exciting team and easy­ on the eye. Shakhtar for the cup!

  9. Thanks Kasper! It was clear thanks!

  10. Well, there's presidence here. Few years ago, the­ Czech Republic scored in a UEFA qualifier on the Faroe­ Islands after the ball was played out of bounds on­ account of an injury to the home side. Don't think­ it got as much attention as it should rightfully have.­ Don't think the Czechs would have done that against­ an estimed team? Just sayin...

  18. Shakhtar deserve to lose, for that act of­ Unsportsmanlike behaviour.

    From Dr I P Freely, on Tue 20 Nov 20:39
  19. "Tommi" a drop kick, Shakhtar kicked the ball­ back to the danish goalkeeper, but instead of continue­ the fair play, they cheated them and their attacker­ rounded the goalkeeper and scored. Afterwards the ref­ told Shakhtar that they should let Nordsjaelland score­ and they initially let them do it but moments before­ they could, they tackled the guy who was suppossed to­ score. Not good english but hope you get what i mean.

    From Kasper Nielsen, on Tue 20 Nov 20:39
  20. Shyster Donetsk.....
