UEFA Champions League - Matchday 1

September 19, 2007

Shakhtar Donetsk beat Celtic 2-0

Brazilian striker Brandao (in the picture) opened the scoring for the Ukrainians in the sixth minute, beating keeper Artur Boruc with a rising shot from the edge of the box after Celtic's defence gave the ball away.

Italy forward Cristiano Lucarelli added a second with a diving header two minutes later following a pin-point cross from Razvan Rat.

Shakhtar could have increased their goal tally in the next 20 minutes, the unmarked Lucarelli wasting a good chance and Brandao having an effort disallowed for offside.
