Brazilian Fernandinho's second-half equaliser earned Shakhtar Donetsk a 1-1 draw with Dynamo Kiev in the first leg of their UEFA Cup semi-final in
Ukraine's capital on Thursday.
Dynamo controlled much of the game and led after 22 minutes
when Shakhtar defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy diverted an Olexandr
Aliyev free kick into his own net.
Shakhtar, who trail their Ukraine rivals by 12 points in
their domestic championship, showed little attacking ambition
until the second half.
But their Brazilian contingent needed only a glimmer of an
opportunity to equalise on 68 minutes. Jadson played substitute
Willian into the penalty area and his low cross to the near post
was guided home by Fernandinho for a valuable away goal.
