AZ Alkmaar continued their fine season by cruising past Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1.

The home victory granted the Dutch side a fine 5-2 aggregate win against the team who entered the Uefa Cup after dropping out of the UEFA Champions League.

Goals from Barry Van Galen and Martijn Meerdink put the tie beyond bout, although Brazilian star Elano pulled one back for the visitors.

Van Galen opened the scoring with a fine effort after just nine minutes, as he played a one-two with Kenneth Perez before curling the ball past Jan Lastuvka in the Shakhtar goal.

AZ extended their lead on 65 minutes as Meerdink slotted past Lastuvka after being put through by Perez, as Co Adriaanse's side booked their place in the quarter finals.

However the visitors were still keen to register on the score sheet, and pegged one back just a minute later through January signing Elano.

The Brazilian headed in past Henk Timmer in the AZ goal as he latched onto a Denys Kulakov cross, although it was too little too late as the Ukrainian side bowed out of the competition.
