Shakhtar Donetsk crashed out of Europe after two first-half goals from Oscar Cardozo gave Benfica a fine 2-1 win on Tuesday night.

Despite making a confident start, Shakhtar found themselves behind after just six minutes when Cardozo struck and with 22 minutes gone the Paraguayan doubled Benfica´s lead with a fine header.

Cristiano Lucarelli´s penalty gave Shakhtar a lifeline before half-time, but they couldn´t find a way through as Benfica sealed a UEFA Cup place.
