Shakhtar wins Ukrainian Cup

FC Shakhtar Donetsk completed their third domestic double and second under Romanian coach Mircea Lucescu with a 2-0 victory against arch-rivals FC Dy­namo Kyiv in the Ukrainian Cup final, uefa.com informs. Follo­wing an even first half in which Shakhtar enjoyed the majority of possession, the Pitmen went ahead on 64 minutes when Da­rijo Srna fed Luiz Adriano, whose pass was dispatched into the far corner by Eduardo. Luiz Adriano made sure Shakhtar would win the trophy for the seventh time with the second goal late on, converting Alex Teixeira’s right-wing cross. “This season belongs to us,” said Srna, the Shakhtar captain. “We claimed the title, the cup and reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on the club’s 75th anniversary. That’s just incredible.”
