Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • Goal
    Perez (AZ) scores from the penalty spot.
    Lastuvka guesses correctly and dives to his right but he is never going to reach Perez's superbly struck penalty.
  • Substitution
    Ramzi (in) - Sektioui (out) (AZ)
    Not the most attacking double substitution Adriaansee could have made, adding a defender for a winger.
  • Substitution
    Jaliens (in) - Landzaat (out) (AZ)
  • Substitution
    Huysegems (in) - Nelisse (out) (AZ)
    Like for like as Adriaansee gives his hard-working lone striker a well deserved rest.
  • Substitution
    Vorobey (in) - Aghahowa (out) (Shakhtar Donetsk)
  • Goal
    Mathijsen (AZ) scores!
    The centre-back, a goalscorer in the last round against Aachen, regains the lead for the home side after more slack marking from Shakhtar. Sektioui creates space on the left flank and crosses to the near post where an unmarked Mathijsen heads past Laštuvka at the near post.
  • Yellow Card
    Tymoshchuk (Shakhtar Donetsk) is shown a yellow card.
    The Shakhtar captain is penalised for pulling Nelisse back and the yellow card means he will be suspended for the second half at the Alkmaarderhout.
  • Substitution
    Jádson (in) - Vukić (out) (Shakhtar Donetsk)
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
  • Goal
    Matuzalém (Shakhtar Donetsk) scores!
    The Brazilian midfield player has had a quiet game, but draws the sides level right on half-time after Alkmaar fail to deal with a Ravzan Rat cross. The ball falls for Aghahowa, who holds off two defenders before squeezing the ball to Matuzalem and the 24-year-old scuffs a shot into the bottom right-hand corner.
  • Substitution
    Elano (in) - João Batista (out) (Shakhtar Donetsk)
    Joao Batista does not appear to have anything wrong with him as he jogs off and the change appears tactical as Lucescu decides to risk his €7.6m signing from Santos FC.
  • Goal
    Nelisse (AZ) scores!
    The 26-year-old opens the scoring for Alkmaar with an excellent finish that gives Lastuvka no chance. Kenneth Perez delivers a corner to the near post and under pressure from Lewandowski, Nelisse flicks the ball into the back of the net.
  • Yellow Card
    De Cler (AZ) is shown a yellow card.
    The 26-year-old is penalised for a late challenge on João Batista as the Brazilian playmaker attempted to break free.
  • Start Time
    The match is under way.
