#3 Shakhtar settle for Europa League as they draw against Lyon: 

Shakhtar Donetsk's objective in their final Champions League fixture was to win over Lyon and get through to the next round. Paulo Fonseca's side were never in full control of the match from the start, but they did manage to get the all-important goal through Moraes in the first half.

Shakhtar were hoping to hold on to the lead secured in the first half, but a spirited and organised display from Bruno Genesio's men ultimately resulted in Fekir scoring the decisive equaliser.

Shakhtar will now have to continue their European campaign in the Europa League as they await their opponents in the Round of 32 clash. The Ukrainian outfit have to be more consistent if they want to go deep in the Europa League.
