Football: Shakhtar Donetsk defeats Braga 1-2
The Ukrainian squad won the first leg of the standoff in UEFA Europa League quarterfinals
Shakhtar Donetsk outmatched the Portuguese club, although none of the teams had enough of nice moments near the opponent’s goals in the first half. Nevertheless, Yaroslav Rakytsky opened the score, when Shakhtar played a corner shortly before the halftime; that was actually the only shot on goal that the Ukrainian team scored in the first half.
The second half proved to be livelier, as both teams spent much time on the opponent’s field. Braga’s Silva had a beautiful chance to equalize, but the ball hit the crossbar. Later, Shakhtar scored second goal in the match as Ferreira caught the ball after Marlos’s pass.
Braga managed to score, too, but that wasn’t enough to tie. Thus, Shakhtar surely made a step to the UEFA Europa League’s semifinals. The return leg of the standoff is slated for April 14.
