Moscow - Hulk scored the opener and set up two more goals as FC Porto routed Spartak Moscow 5-2 in the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals to advance 10-3 on aggregate on Thursday.

Hulk opened the scoring for Porto with a solo effort from halfway in the 28th minute. Cristian Rodriguez headed in Hulk's corner kick in first-half injury time to make it 2-0. Right halfback Freddy Guarin made it 3-0 two minutes after the break before Artem Dzyba scored for the home side in the 52nd.

Falcao, who scored a hat trick in the first-leg 5-1 win, headed in his 11th goal in the competition this season to make it 4-1 two minutes later. Second-half substitute Ari scored a narrow-angled goal for Spartak in the 72nd and Porto substitute Ruben Micael restored the three-goal advantage with one minute left in regulation.

In the semifinals in two weeks, Porto will face the winner of the Villarreal-FC Twente quarterfinal.
