Europa League. Shakhtar defeated Basel and will now meet Inter in the semifinals

In the quarter-final match, which this season consisted of one match, the victory was brought to the Pitmen by accurate shots by Moraes, Tyson, Alan Patrick and Dodo, to which "Basel" responded with only one goal.

The match, which took place in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, started well for the miners. In the second minute, Marlos made a corner, and none of the Basel players prevented Moraes from opening the scoring in the match.

Despite Shakhtar's defensive line being rebuilt due to Ismaili's injury and Khocholava's disqualification, Donetsk did not allow much for the opponent at their gates. Puliula broke through dangerously, but his shot in the near corner was inaccurate. On the other hand, the orange-black counterattack in the middle of the half turned out to be the most productive. Matvienko intercepted the ball and started a multi-pass combination, which Tyson completed with a ricochet. 2: 0.

Even in the first half, Donetsk could make the score devastating, but Nikolic parried extremely dangerous shots by Moraes and Marlos, and Marcos Antonio hit the crossbar. In general, the first 45 minutes passed with the complete domination of the champion of Ukraine.
