Shakhtar Donetsk captain Darijo Srna gave his side an early 1-0 lead in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie versus Borussia Dortmund Wednesday night with a 31st minute free kick goal from 24 yards out. “That free kick has been made to count by Dario Srna who curls it up and over the wall and beats the flat footed Weidenfeller for pace.” -Soccernet
However, the reigning German champions equalized not once, but twice to force a 2-2 draw in Ukraine. With the return leg back in Germany in three weeks, Shakhtar surely needs a win on the road to progress to the quarterfinals. Eduardo was introduced in the 84th minute but didn’t have enough time to make an impact.
With Real Madrid and Manchester United tied at one, Luka Modrić was introduced in the 75th minute for Angel Di Maria, but didn’t have a chance to contribute offensively until injury time. Modric took the ball on the goal line and chipped a perfect pass to Cristiano Ronaldo in front of net but the Portugal man couldn’t find his bearings for a proper shot on goal. The game would end 1-1 with the return leg at Old Trafford in three week’s time.
