Dnipro booked their place in the knockout stage of the Europa League with a routine 2-0 win at home to Pacos Ferreira.
Goals from Matheus and Yevhen Konoplyanka in either half were enough to secure a win which leaves the Ukraininan side three points behind Group E leaders Fiorentina, who struck twice late to beat Pandurii Targu-Jiu.
Dnipro dominated the opening half although they had to wait to make their breakthrough as Antonio Felipe was busied in the away goal.
Felipe was comfortable enough when he held Nikola Kalinic's 18-yard drive but he needed to be at full alert to tip a Bruno Gama effort from the middle of the penalty area past his post.
Kalinic thrashed another effort just off target before Matheus broke through on 44 minutes.
Artem Fedetskiy supplied the cross from the right for the Brazilan striker to get his head on to from six yards.
The Ukrainians therefore had the comfort of a half-time lead and took 20 minutes of the second period to further strengthen their position.
Matheus and Konoplyanka had both tested Felipe before the latter added his name to the scoresheet on 66 minutes.
Kalinic headed the ball down for Konoplyanka who beat Felipe from 20 yards.
Sergiy Politylo went close to making it 3-0 only for his shot to be tipped wide.
At the other end Denys Boyko was forced into rare action to keep out Jean Seri's tight-angled effort.
Jaba Kankava fired wide from the edge of the area in the closing stages but the damage had already been done.
