    Time:90'
    • Shakhtar Donetsk
    • Fulham
    • 90+6 That's it! Fulham are through! They have knocked out the holders! What a scalp!
    • 90+5 Duff back defending hoofs it out to touch.
    • 90+4 Murphy loses his rag and kicks out at Srna. Straight red, silly from Murphy and bizarre, out of character.
    • 90+3 Only a yellow for Ilsinho.
    • 90+2 Fulham on the break, they have men over and this could be it but Duff opts to run it into the corner and OOF a horrid tackle from Ilsinho on Duff. Hodgson almost runs on to the pitch!
    • 90+1 Fernandinho and Srna combine, crossed in but Duff clears, Rakytskyy smashes it in from range but all day for Schwarzer, claiming low.
    • 90' Given away by Kucher, Gera is in, he must score but he puts it wide! What a miss!
    • 89' Murphy takes it short to Baird, of all people, who cracks a decent effort that rises over. FULHAM SUB: Davies off, Riise on, fresh legs.
    • 88' Gera is very lucky to win a free-kick 35 yards out after that nice spell of possession for Fulham was about to fizzle out. A chance for Fulham to keep it upfield and - crucially - waste some seconds.
    • 87' Douglas gives it away, Gera to Elm, now Davies, Fulham slow it down again. Murphy inside and Duff on the right. They just need to keep ball...
    • 86' Gera on the left but he realises he has nowhere to go so slows it down for Fulham to keep ball for a spell.
    • 85' Srna inside to Jadson who is in but no he isn't, Hangeland blocks easily to clear.
    • 84' HOW DID THEY MISS? Jadson shoots wide, taking a touch off Hughes I think for a corner. They want a penalty but he blasted it at the Fulham defender. Corner.
    • 82' Rakytskyy hammers one in from 25 yards but well wide, the crowd roar as it hits the side netting but covered by Schwarzer.
    • 81' Gladkyy does well down the left but Hughes does even better to stand him up and block the cross. Corner, taken short, Kravchenko makes a mess though and it's blocked for another corner. This one ends up on the edge of the box but Kucher hammers it yards wide.
    • 80' Duff is back defending with Baird to put it clear. Srna loses out to Davies on the Whites left. Foul though.
    • 79' Hangeland gives the ball away and Shakhtar build again but Kravchenko shows that famed shooting ability but smacking it three yards over.
    • 78' Jadson swings the ball wide to Rat who mis-hits the cross but it almost sneaks over Schwarzer, who holds on easily in the end.
    • 77' Gera stops Fernandinho with a rugby-style tackle. First booking of the night.
    • 76' SHAKHTAR SUB: Gladkyy is on for Luiz Adriano - Lucescu does NOT like to change his formation so they stick with one striker.
    • 76' The hosts burst forward again but cleared by Baird.
    • 75' Elm, all on his own, nods on Schwarzer's long punt and has to chase his own flick as he has no support. Shakhtar clear.
    • 74' Fernandinho rolls forward but Etuhu just eases him off the ball to poke it to safety.
    • 73' Brilliant intervention by Hughes to clear while falling on the edge of the box. Then Murphy with a superb piece of control to kill a high ball but Kelly follows by kicking air.
    • 72' FULHAM SUB: Elm on for Zamora.
    • 72' Fulham hoof the ball clear for Zamora but he cannot hold it up. Davies gets it back though, finding Gera who wins a free-kick.
    • 71' That goal changes the whole shape of the game. Shakhtar can force extra time with one more.
    • 69' GOAL SHAKHTAR! Lovely wingplay from Douglas on the right, leaving Kelly for dead and drilling a low cross that Jadson just directed past Schwarzer into the bottom left. 1-1! 3-2 on aggregate...
    • 68' Rakytskyy tries one from 35 yards out and it moves a lot and, for once, Schwarzer loses concentration, dropping it but holding on to the loose ball.
    • 67' Duff tries to link-up with Gera but the ball is ahead of him, out for a throw.
    • 66' Ilsinho hauls Kelly down to the ground as he surged forward on the left. How that is not a card I don't know.
    • 65' Shakhtar go down the other end and win a corner, which they take short this time but Fulham ride the danger and it's back with Schwarzer.
    • 64' Brilliant from Duff sliding in to challenge Rat, and Zamora is in, he's clean through on the right and he must find Gera but just behind the Hungarian! If Zamora had got that ball right it would have been game over!
    • 62' Great football by Ilsinho to shimmy past two and set up Douglas, who shoots left-footed but sends it a yard over with Schwarzer watching it all the way.
    • 61' Hoofed away by Hughes with Luiz Adriano lurking.
    • 60' Brilliant from Douglas, beating three men to spin in on the left but Hughes blocks his low cross for a corner. There was nothing to aim at too.
    • 59' Shakhtar still passing it well enough but they do not have a cutting edge.
    • 58' A good spell of passing by Fulham, taking the sting out of the game, but Hughes mis-controls and puts it out for a throw.
    • 57' Srna with a poor ball inside from the right with his team having men over. Fulham can't counter though, sitting a touch too deep.
    • 56' Adriano spins the ball wide looking for Douglas, Kelly slides in to get their first, Douglas goes own like he's been shot but the ref knows Kelly won the ball.
    • 55' Kucher appears to foul Gera but nothing given.
    • 54' Fulham string some passes together, more confident in possession although in their own half...
    • 53' SHAKHTAR SUB: Douglas is on for Willian, like for like in terms of positioning and nationality.
    • 52' ... Srna is in down the right, he digs out a wicked cross and Adriano powers in a header but Schwarzer is well-placed to claim! Either side of him and Fulham had problems - all very well if you play this way but you cannot make mistakes, Gera at fault there.
    • 51' Etuhu intercepts just as Jadson prepared to shoot. Fulham give it away though...
    • 50' Still the same pattern but Fulham won't budge...
    • 49' Rat gets down the left wing but Duff epitomises Fulham's tactics, chasing him down to tackle.
    • 48' Fulham have got to the stage where they're now reading the passes as opposed to the shots. Good example of defence and counter from the Whites.
    • 47' As expected Shakhtar have started by passing nicely and pressing high up the field, with Fulham holding firm on the edge of their box.
    • 46' Second half underway!
    • 46' SHAKHTAR SUB: Kravchenko is on for the hosts at half-time. I think he is on for Hubschmann, possibly on account of his greater readiness to shoot.
    • 45+1 Schwarzer claims a high ball and it is half-time. A 3-1 aggregate lead to Fulham!
    • 45' Shakhtar come forward and really they should have tested Schwarzer there but a touch of panic in the Fulham box by the hosts allows the Whites to clear.
    • 44' Fulham counter as Davies plays it to Zamora, he knocks it past Rakytskyy and from 30 yards hammers an audacious strike that fizzes just past the top right! Who does he think he is, Pele?!
    • 43' Rearguard action by Fulham on the edge of the box as Hangeland then Hughes clear with Shakhtar camped on the edge...
    • 41' Again an expansive passing move by Shakhtar but they pass themselves into a daze and Kelly can clear.
    • 40' Fulham seem to have worked out how to control Shakhtar - let them play but disrupt the rhythm and isolate the striker Luiz Adriano.
    • 39' Fernandinho races forward, Adriano now flicks it to Ilsinho but his shot is deflected well wide for a corner on the right. Taken short and the ball is lofted in for Rakytskyy but Fulham clear.
    • 38' Zamora now on the left but oddly Shakhtar get the throw after Srna clearly got the last touch.
    • 37' Ilsinho races forward on to Jadson's ball but his cross is poor, easy for Schwarzer.
    • 37' Free-kick for Fulham almost the same position as the goal but with the keeper flapping Pyatov gets it clear. Fulham then win a throw on the right wing.
    • 36' Suddenly Fulham are passing rings around Shakhtar as Duff goes down a bit easy on the right and he wins a free-kick off Rat. Lucky.
    • 35' Baird nods a long ball back to the keeper. Unbelievable really, Shakhtar should have scored around five or six times and this early goal plays into Fulham's hands as they can sit and counter.
    • 34' GOAL FULHAM! Hangeland! Fulham score with their first ball into the box, Duff curling in a beauty of a free-kick with his left and the big Norwegian just standing there six-foot-five tall and nodding the ball into the bottom left!
    • 33' Rakytskyy gives away a free-kick on the right. Good spell for Fulham and these are the times you need to take your chances...
    • 32' Decent passing from Fulham as they bring it clear, Zamora bustling forward to win a throw deep on the right.
    • 30' Unusually Jadson gets his slide-rule pass all wrong. Perhaps a little over-eager. Freezing out tonight.
    • 29' It moves! Fulham attack down the right, with probably their third-least attack-minded outfield player Chris Baird losing it on the wing.
    • 28' Mesmerising passing from a team I'd like to call Ukrainian but for whom the dominant nationality is Brazilian: five of them in the starting line-up, a Czech, a Romanian, a Croat and three locals. There is also a Brazilian on the bench in Douglas.
    • 26' Hangeland almost puts past Schwarzer but his wild clearance goes over. The low ball is played across goal where it arrives at the feet of Willian surely but he puts it wide!!
    • 25' Fernandinho wins ANOTHER corner on the right but his cross is blocked by Kelly.
    • 24' Srna on the rampage to win a corner down the right again. Headed clear though...
    • 23' Shakhtar's Romanian boss Mircea Lucescu said that his team's error in the first leg was being scared to shoot. They seem keener today. Fulham on the rack...
    • 22' Srna bombs down the right again but his cross is easy for Schwarzer.
    • 21' Schwarzer claims easily enough after Willian snatched at the shot only 12 yards out. Shakhtar seem intent on passing it in, Jadson and Ilsinho both had chances to shoot but instead laid the ball off looking for the perfect goal.
    • 20' Great challenge by Duff on Willian. Everyone is having to defend right now.
    • 19' Hubschmann mis-controls just as he was played in by Jadson. It came very quick to the Czech.
    • 18' Great challenge by Hangeland on Fernandinho after the Brazilian got in on the right. Corner.
    • 17' Guess what - Fulham still haven't done anything. The hosts running rings around them.
    • 15' Willian plays a neat ball outside left to Rat but he is offside, hinting at how adventurous this team is - Rat is the left back.
    • 14' Fernandinho races forward, it opens up for him AND HE SMACKS A WICKED DRIVE ON GOAL BUT A SUPER STOP BY SCHWARZER! He can only bat it away but Baird is well-placed to chest it gently back to the Aussie.
    • 13' Fernandinho in for Adriano, now Jadson plays it back through but Hughes with a great intervention, blocking with his heel.
    • 12' Terrible ball across his own back-line by Baird plays Hughes into trouble, real trouble as Jadson is in but he snatches at the shot, easy for Schwarzer!
    • 11' Zamora almost gets on to Murphy's free-kick but Pyatov gets there first, nearly mis-handling in the process. Shakhtar break with Srna sent totally free down the right, he cuts it back low FOR JADSON but he scuffs the shot, weak and wide!
    • 10' Murphy again gives it away, Fulham unable to even string two or three passes together. The next Shakhtar attack breaks down through, Baird and Hughes combine to clear. Zamora does well to hold it up and win a free-kick off Hubschmann.
    • 9' Neat attacking move from Shakhtar but Jadson can't thread it through to Luiz Adriano.
    • 8' Zamora senses a half-chance on the edge of the box but blocked by the defence, Gera now can play him back in but over-hits it.
    • 7' Baird gives the ball away but is spared by Willian running it out of play. Fulham seem nervous.
    • 6' Fulham have barely had a sniff in these opening minutes. The ball has not really entered the hosts' half and the Whites cannot string a pass together.
    • 5' Hangeland gets the second corner clear. Every time the ball moves towards the Fulham penalty area the crowd goes wild. A tough environment this...
    • 4' Corner one is taken short and yields a second corner, also on the right.
    • 3' A delay in taking the corner as Willian hurt himself landing after that rising drive...
    • 2' Willian cracks a superb effort on goal that Schwarzer barely tips over!
    • 1' Luiz Adriano gets the first shot on target after zipping towards the edge of the box and putting a low drive straight down Schwarzer's throat.
    • 1' The first half is underway!!
    • - Referee: Svein Oddvar Moen (Norway)
    • - The Ukrainian side continue with the same line-up from last week's first leg: their season is now in recess so well-rested they will be with their Brazilian-flavoured team.
    • - Shakhtar Donetsk team: Pyatov, Srna, Kucher, Rakitskiy, Rat, Hubschman, Fernandinho, Ilsinho, Jadson, Willian, Luiz Adriano; Subs: Tetenko, Lewandowski, Gai, Douglas Costa, Gladkyy, Kravchenko, Ischenko
    • - So for the Whites only one change from their solid win over Birmingham at the weekend: Nicky Shorey is ineligible so he is replaced by Stephen Kelly, with Paul Konchesky not yet fit after recovering from injury. Zamora leads the line alone, supported by Zoltan Gera, Damien Duff and Simon Davies. To see why Danny Murphy thinks Zamora should get an England call click HERE!
    • - Fulham team: Schwarzer, Baird, Hangeland, Hughes, Kelly, Gera, Murphy, Duff, Etuhu, Davies, Zamora; Subs: Zuberbuhler, Nevland, Riise, Smalling, Greening, Elm, Marsh-Brown
    • - Fulham lead 2-1 from the first leg but Shakhtar have a crucial away goal, and a delightful goal it was too. To recap, Fulham went ahead when Andriy Pyatov mis-handled a Zoltan Gera daisy-cutter before Luiz Adriano levelled by capping off a superb counter attack. Shakhtar bossed things for a bit but Fulham fought back and Bobby Zamora claimed a late winner with a screamer...
