    Time:90'
    • Shakhtar Donetsk
    • Borussia Dortmund
    • 90+4 That's full-time, a mini-thriller in Donetsk as Dortmund snatch a 2-2 draw to give them the advantage back home in three weeks. Thanks for joining us!
    • 90+3 Webb lets play continue as Dortmund win a throw on the right wing but they only pass it back to defence to wind down the clock.
    • 90+2 Aimless ball forward from Leitner as Shakhtar were backtracking.
    • 90+1 DORTMUND SUB: Schieber replaces Reus.
    • 90' Three minutes added time.
    • 89' Lewandowski is left in a heap by a rotten challenge from Chygrynskiy.
    • 88' Very much advantage Dortmund now - 2-2 puts them in a great position going back to their cauldron of a home ground. Hummels makes up for his error.
    • 87' Webb has a chat with Srna and Kehl over some nonsense as they prepare for the corner... AND HUMMELS LEVELS! Flying header, buried in the middle of the goal after a super delivery from Schmelzer. What a great corner on to the edge of the six-yard box.
    • 86' Corner to Dortmund on the right... Swung far post where Piszczek meets it but Chygrynskiy puts behind for another corner.
    • 85' Douglas runs past Schmelzer but takes it out of play in the process.
    • 84' SHAKHTAR SUB: Eduardo replaces Alex. I suppose he counts as a Brazilian, despite his Croatian passport.
    • 83' Hummels manages to contain Douglas this time as he guides it out for a goal kick.
    • 82' Good ball in, only half cleared and Lewandowski can shoot but has his back to goal, another heavy touch and eventually Shakhtar get it away.
    • 81' Corner to Dortmund now, which Goetze will take.
    • 80' DORTMUND SUB: Blaszczykowski comes off for Leitner.
    • 78' Still close in the possession stakes, 51% to BvB now, who have had three efforts on goal this half to Shakhtar's five.
    • 77' Free-kick to Shakhtar a long way out and Mkhitaryan inexplicably shoots, well over and wide to boot.
    • 76' Brilliant run from Mkhitaryan down the right past a desperate Hummels but his low cross lands behind Adriano and away from danger!
    • 75' Kehl tries to bulldoze his way through after a Lewandowski shot is blocked but Shakhtar scramble clear!
    • 74' Shakhtar clear the corner but Alex can't turn it into a counter as Piszczek clears.
    • 73' Chygrynskiy misdirects a header behind for a corner, he was looking for his keeper.
    • 72' GOETZE INCHES WIDE! Poor header from Rat lands to Piszczek, who puts a lowish cross into the box where Goetze flies in with a spinning volley that he fires wide! Looked in!
    • 71' Better from Dortmund as they take the game to Shakhtar!
    • 70' Straight from the restart Fernandinho was booked for a foul on Bender.
    • 70' Looking at the replay you can see Santana was all over the place but Hummels - so highly rated - completely missed his header after letting it bounce. Costa plucked it out of the air with one touch, which took him past Schmelzer before flying into an acrobatic finish.
    • 69' GOAL SHAKHTAR! Cracking goal from the substitute Douglas Costa, lovely low half-volleyed finish to the right but terrible defending from first Santana failing to hold the line, then Hummels missing his defensive header.
    • 68' Great corner by Schmelzer but Hummels - unmarked flying in - nods it across goal instead of towards it and Shakhtar clear. Now Reus commits a foul on the left and it's a free-kick to the home side.
    • 67' Goetze to Lewandowski on the right, now back to Goetze who crosses for Lew, half-cleared only back to Goetze who is tackled by Hubschmann. Corner to Dortmund.
    • 66' Dortmund with some space on the break but a fine tackle by Hubschmann on Goetze. Now Alex on the Shakhtar left but Santana and Piszczek double up to clear.
    • 65' Good block by Hummels, who plays it off Adriano and wins a throw for his side.
    • 64' Fernandinho with a fine pass wide to a bounding Rat but his low cross is hoofed away by Santana.
    • 63' Dortmund's free-kick is cleared and Shakhtar break but Douglas shoves Schmelzer and concedes a free-kick.
    • 62' SHAKHTAR SUB: I thought Taison played well, but off he goes as Douglas replaces him.
    • 62' Mkhitaryan handles while tracking back and BvB have a free-kick on their left wing.
    • 61' Piszczek with a pair of crosses that are blocked by Rakytskyy and then Fernandinho of all people.
    • 60' Dortmund's turn on the ball now as they pass their way into the Shakhtar half.
    • 59' Srna questions the assistant after the ball clearly came off the Croat for a Dortmund goal kick. He's smiling while he does it so no action from Webb.
    • 58' Shakhtar with a bit more of the ball now. Throw on the right wing as Alex knocks it off Schmelzer.
    • 57' This half has been somewhat less enthralling than the first. A bit messy and subdued.
    • 56' Foul on Adriano by Hummels, who raises his arm in apology but somehow gets away with it! Webb waves play on. Odd.
    • 54' Hubschmann with an important clearance after some kamikaze defending from his team-mates.
    • 53' Lewandowski with an audacious effort on the half volley as the ball dropped over his shoulder, but straight at Pyatov.
    • 52' Adriano with a superb run down the right and a low cross to the unmarked Mkhitaryan who must score but his low finish is blocked superbly by Santana!
    • 51' Shakhtar escape their half as Srna and Fernandinho exchange passes on the right, but closing down from the BvB players forces him to go back to his own half.
    • 50' Bender does well to block a ball into the box and win a free-kick off Adriano, who pulled him back in fustration.
    • 49' Pyatov gets a hand on a high ball aimed for the rising Lewandowski, as Srna completes the clearance.
    • 48' Good start to the half by Dortmund, who are really going for Shakhtar from the restart!
    • 47' Reus with a low effort but Srna blocks, the ball drops to Kuba but Srna intervenes to nod it back to Pyatov.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • - What do you reckon will happen now? My money's on one more goal apiece, the neutral loves a 2-2, otherwise known as a Desmond. Let me know on Twitter @Reda_Eurosport. FOLLOW ON TWITTER!
    • - Some half-time stats: Shakhtar with 51% possession, but Dortmund with 7 shots on target to the hosts' 4. Either way, pretty even, pretty entertaining!
    • 45+1 Half-time and an entertaining first half ends 1-1, Srna and Lewandowski with the goals! Great game so far!
    • 45' One minute added time being played.
    • 44' OFF THE LINE BY SCHMELZER! Terrible keeping from Weidenfeller after a weak low shot from Taison is mis-handled by the German keeper, the loose ball misses Adriano sliding in but lands for Alex, who fires the shot on goal only to find both Hummels and - ultimately - Schmelzer in his way!
    • 43' Lewandowski catches Rat after a short ball from Reus. Not intentional but he tripped him.
    • 42' Goetze with the assist, putting in a second low cross after a poor initial clearance from Chygrynskiy.
    • 41' GOAL DORTMUND! Lewandowski follows an air-kick with a clinical finish! Lucky man, he totally messed up the initial finish but got his head together with bodies hitting the deck, composing himself and putting it low to the right from 10 yards.
    • 40' Terrible long ball from Goetze straight to Pyatov when his side had men over on the break. Not what you'd expect from the Germany playmaker.
    • 39' Blaszczykowski does really well to dig out a shot under pressure from 20 yards but it curls the wrong way and wide of the far post!
    • 38' Free-kick to BvB on the right - Schmelzer swings it in but Srna is back defending to nod clear.
    • 37' Great play by Dortmund at the back as they pass their way out of trouble under some pressure from the high-pressing hosts.
    • 36' Piszczek heads the ball inside to Blaszczykowski who, 20 yards out, hits a half-volley too close to Pyatov.
    • 35' Fernandinho tries to release Adriano but the ball is too heavy. Some heavy challenges flying in from both sides but Webb, as you know, doesn't mind that.
    • 34' Hubschmann with a high boot and Dortmund have some respite. They were doing so well but a moment of magic has put the hosts in front.
    • 33' Taison leaves Santana for dead on the left, fantastic outswinging cross AND ADRIANO FLIES IN but Schmelzer knocks it wide! Corner.
    • 32' Srna, 30, has spent the last 10 years at Shakhtar and he has just scored his 20th goal, most of which have come from free-kicks.
    • 31' Srna will take this - AND HE NETS A BEAUTY! Fantastic curling effort into the top left from the Croatia full-back! Weidenfeller left scrambling by that.
    • 30' Kehl chops down Fernandinho in midfield. And now Adriano is fouled by Santana around 25 yards out and Shakhtar have a free-kick in a dangerous position.
    • 29' The home fans whistle a spell of Dortmund ball. It ends as Piszczek hits it long.
    • 28' After that five minutes of excitement for Dortmund, the hosts are starting to take hold of the match. Much better on the ball now.
    • 27' Srna again with the corner but cleared from the near post.
    • 26' Mkhitaryan tries a long shot but it's blocked by Kehl for a corner.
    • 25' Much better ball in from Srna but hooked away from Rakytskyy by Santana I think. Bit of a scramble now but Dortmund have a free-kick.
    • 24' Terrible corner from Srna, normally excellent with such deliveries, weak to the near post and hooked clear by Hummels. Lewandowski then gives away a foul on Alex.
    • 23' Srna with a bounding run down the right but he overhits the cross, which is put behind by Reus for a corner.
    • 22' Adriano on the right, he slips but keeps the ball although Fernandinho loses possession and Srna has to lump it to touch.
    • 21' Dortmund, meanwhile, are having a really good spell but it comes to an end as Schmelzer plays a poor long ball straight to the home defence.
    • 20' Manchester United have scored at the Bernabeu in their prestige clash with Real Madrid! Proper big-game player Danny Welbeck is! Follow it via my colleague Tom at the link below. Real Madrid v Manchester United | Live | Score | Champions League 2012-2013 - Yahoo Eurosport UK
    • 19' Ferocious long-range effort from Reus but it's too close to Pyatov, who catches it well. Dortmund looking the livelier all of a sudden.
    • 18' Blaszczykowski hammers a long-range drive but it's blocked. Blaszczykowski gets it again on the right, fine cross but Lewandowski's touch is heavy and Chygrynskiy hacks it away! The Dortmund hit-man should have done better!
    • 17' HUMMELS HITS THE BAR! He flew in with a power header from that Reus corner, getting well above Taison, and his effort rattled off the woodwork!
    • 16' A Hummels long ball lands for Lewandowski, he crosses deep for a late arriving Goetze but Srna hacks behind for a corner to Dortmund. Great play Lew, who had two men on him but still dug out a cross.
    • 15' Error from Santana lets Adriano in down the left, but the defender recovers well with a fine slide tackle. Corner. Taken short with Taison on the ball, now Alex with some tricky feet but Taison gives away a free-kick by pulling Blaszczykowski's shirt.
    • 14' Blaszczykowski leads another Dortmund charge but he gets his pass all wrong, threading it centrally when Lewandowski and Goetze were wide of him either side.
    • 13' Reus takes the free-kick but it's straight at Pyatov. Weak effort.
    • 12' Rakytskyy is warned by Webb after a clumsy challenge on Goetze. Free-kick to Dortmund...
    • 11' Lewandowski looks quizically towards Howard Webb as he goes down following a one-two with Reus. Looked like Srna shoved him but nothing doing, and Shakhtar counter at pace but Taison fails to get the final ball through to Adriano.
    • 11' Shakhtar with a counter attack now, Alex finds Taison who swings it wide right to a completely free Fernandinho but he went far too early and is offside. Poor movement. That was an all-Brazilian move
    • 10' Fine cross by Goetze on the left, Lewandowski rises to flick the header well wide but the whistle went for a foul by the Pole.
    • 9' Felipe Santana with a skewed clearance into touch. Throw to the hosts deep in the Dortmund half, taken quickly to send Mkhitaryan clean through but he was offside.
    • 8' Blaszczykowski drags a low effort well wide of the far post after racing on to a fantastic Goetze pass! He should have cut it back for his Poland buddy Lewandowski!
    • 7' Taison with a cute pass to Mkhitaryan. who appears to be fouled by Schmelzer but the ref waves him up.
    • 6' Alex wins a free-kick off Schmelzer on the right wing. Taken short as Shakhtar look to build their attacks.
    • 5' Foul on Lewandowski by Hubschman in midfield. He was all over the Pole. Swung into the box, Chygrynskiy with a weak defensive header but Blaszczykowski bicycle-kicks wwell wide.
    • 4' Alex almost slides Luiz Adriano in but good interception from Hummels!
    • 3' Newboy Taison finds fellow new Brazilian Alex, but Srna overhits his cross from the right.
    • 2' Shakhtar passing it slowly around the back from kick off. They play a tidy possession game, and it's not just their Brazilians who are good on the ball.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Donbass Arena!
    • 19:46 We have a minute's silence for the victims of that plane crash, which was carrying Shakhtar fans from Odessa. Four were killed with 41 safe, it has been confirmed.
    • 19:44 Dortmund skipper Sebastian Kehl wins the toss. He chooses the end over kick-off.

    • 19:35 William Hill has the odds shortening on Dortmund and the draw today, and lengthening on Shakhtar, who are at 13/8, with Dortmund 7/4, and the draw 11/5. I can see it being a high-scoring match, as both sides love to attack. I can't see Dortmund winning though as Shakhtar are very, very tough to beat away. What do you reckon?

    • 19:30 FACTS: Borussia Dortmund have won their two previous meetings with Shakhtar. It was in the Champions League play-offs back in August 2001. BVB won 2-0 in Ukraine and 3-1 in Germany. No Ukrainian team has ever beaten Borussia Dortmund in European competition (including qualifiers) (five losses, one draw). Borussia Dortmund are one of four teams unbeaten in the Champions League this season with Juventus, Malaga and Schalke.
    • 19:25 FACTS: Shakhtar Donetsk have only won 2 of their last 7 Champions League games at home (three defeats, two draws). This is only the second time Shakhtar have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League after 2010/11 when they were eventually knocked out in the quarter-finals. Shakhtar are unbeaten in their last 4 encounters with German clubs in European competition (three wins, one draw).
    • 19:20 Juergen Klopp: "(Shakhtar) have unbelievable quality in their squad, their starting XI is brilliant and so is their bench. They just got Taison 20 million euros cheaper than the other one (Willian), it's unbelievable. They have an impressive midfield with Fernandinho. It will be a massive challenge for us."
    • 19:15 Mircea Lucescu: “Judging by the games we have played at the training camps, I can say that we are ready. But the real test is waiting for us tomorrow. We have beaten German sides many times: Stuttgart, Shalke 04, Werder Bremen. So we have experience of performance against German teams."
    • 19:10 Left-back Marcel Schmelzer has been passed fit for Dortmund but midfielders Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin Grosskreutz are out with injury and illness respectively. Neven Subotic is fully fit after overcoming a calf problem, but he is only a sub, as is Nuri Sahin, who re-signed for the club from Liverpool in January after failed spells at Anfield and Real Madrid.
    • 19:05 Shakhtar are on their winter break, with the next season starting in March. As a result there are few injury problems, although Chygrynskiy replaces the suspended Kucher. Alex Texeira starts following the sale of Willian to Anzhi, while fellow new signing Taison starts up front.
    • 19:00 We're hearing from our friends out East that three people have died in that plane crash in Donetsk. Apparently the plane was carrying 36 passengers, and nine crew, and was taking people from Odessa to see the match. More detail as it comes...
    • 18:55 TEAMS - Shakhtar: Pyatov, Rat, Chygrynskiy, Rakitskiy, Hubschman, Fernandinho, Alex Teixeira, Srna, Luiz Adriano, Mkhitaryan, Taison; Subs: Kanibolotskiy, Shevchuk, Ishchenko, Stepanenko, Douglas Costa, Eudardo, Devic /// Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Santana, Hummels, Schmelzer, Kehl, Bender, Blaszczykowski, Goetze, Reus, Lewandowski; Subs: Langerak, Subotic, Halstenberg, Leitner, Sahin, Bittencourt, Schieber
    • 18:50 A plane has crashed while approaching Donetsk ahead of this evening's game. We do not know if the approaching aircraft had anything to do with tonight's match but it was a couple of hours ago, with two of the 45 on board reported dead. More as it happens. Champions League - 'At least two' killed in Donetsk plane crash
