Shakhtar edge past Monaco into Champions League group stage.

Shakhtar managed to rebound after a shock 0:2 start at home, sealing the desired draw in extra time.

The second match of this year’s Champions League play-off qualifiers saw Shakhtar draw 2:2 against Monaco in a dramatic thriller, ultimately making their way forward thanks to an aggregate score as the team had won the away match 0:1, Ukrinform reports.

Shakhtar’s home match was hosted by Kharkiv as the Donetsk-based club has long been displaced due to an ongoing conflict with the Russian-controlled forces in eastern Ukraine.

In extra time, an own goal by Monaco defender Ruben Aguilar in 114th.

In other matches of the playoff qualification round RB Salzburg beat Brondby (2:1 and 2:1), and Sheriff (Moldova) defeated Dynamo Zagreb on aggregate (3:0 and 0:0), sealing a historic Champions League appearance for their country, which became the 34th participant in the competition.
