Alex Teixeira continued his incredible run of form with another two goals as Shakhtar Donetsk strolled to a 6-1 victory at Hoverla. The Brazilian forward has now struck 21 times in 14 Ukrainian Premier League outings this term – and 12 goals in his last eight games in all competitions. The result kept the Pitmen level at the top of the standings with Dynamo Kyiv.
Having lost 6-1 at Barcelona in midweek, Roma suffered another damaging defeat as Atalanta condemned them to a first home defeat of the season. Alejandro Gómez struck the opener before Maicon's dismissal resulted in penalty which Germán Denis converted. The visitors were reduced to nine men in the closing stages but held on to claim a 2-0 success.
