Shakhtar went ahead five minutes after halftime when Taras Stepanenko met Bernard's out-swinging corner with a thumping header which went straight into the top corner.

Porto appeared to have their minds on Sunday's league match against arch-rivals Benfica until the 87th minute when Cameroon forward Aboubakar collected a loose ball in midfield and, despite being partly off-balance, rifled home an unstoppable shot from 25 metres.
