A game of UEFA Europa League quarterfinal was played in Germany, as Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Basel were struggling for the right to carry on to the semifinals.

Mountaineers opened the score early, with Moraes's header after a corner. Soon after that, Taison's powerful shot doubled the advantage of the Ukrainian team.

Then, in the second half, Alan Patrick scored again, with a successful penalty kick, as Basel's defense downed Taison. Finally, Dodo almost sealed the fate of the game, making it 4-0 with a low shot after Tete's pass. 

Basel only resisted at the very end of the game, as Van Wolfswinkel scored a prestige goal on 92'.

Now, Castro's squad will stand against Inter. The semifinal game of the UEFA Europa League will be played in Dusseldorf on August 17.
