In the future, the Portuguese dominated the field. In the 15th minute, Galeno scored a double, intercepting Sikan's pass to Lemkin at the entrance to the miners' penalty area. Later, the same Galeno broke through on the left flank and shot right at the foot of Taremi, who increased the advantage of Porto. By the end of the first half, Riznik had to save Shakhtar several times.

The miners started the second half of the meeting well, Nazaryn shot dangerously from a sharp angle. Then Riznyk had to save after the blows of Eustachio and Franko. In the 65th minute, Sikan found Zubkov in the penalty area, but Kosta pulled away his shot from a sharp corner.

At the end of the match, "Porto" openly played for the score, and "Shakhtar" distinguished itself with Zubkov's shot in the plane. So the miners started in the Champions League with a defeat - 1:3.
