Shakhtar are almost there and may have only one more attack to defend.
There will be three minutes of added time.

WIDE! Joao Victor tees up Brekalo for a strike 25 yards from goal. He connects well with his effort, only to see the ball travel just wide of the right post.
Wolfsburg are running out of time to get back into the game. Again they've not responded well to going behind.

Joao Victor is on for Schlager for the home side.
GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!! ANTONIO CONVERTS FROM CLOSE RANGE!!! 2-1!!! Shakhtar regain the lead as Antonio is on the spot with a diving header after Patrick's free-kick cannons off the bar. The midfielder sends a super strike towards goal from 25 yards that curls away from Casteels. The Wolfsburg keeper does brilliantly to tip it on to the bar, but the rebound falls perfectly for Antonio. He stoops to plant his effort into the back of the net.
Brooks brings down Patrick on the charge and goes into the book. Shakhtar have a free-kick in shooting distance.
Matvyenko shifts out to left-back and he makes a run to the byline. Brooks is well placed to defend the low cross that arrives at the near post.

Khocholava comes on to replace Ismaily at the back for the visitors, which may result in a change of shape.
Maycon replaces Kovalenko for the visitors.

Mehmedi leads a counter down the right flank and he combines with Brekalo, but Weghorst halts the attack as he is in an offside position. The striker has not been at his best this evening.

GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!! BROOKS EQUALISES!!! 1-1!!! Wolfsburg respond with a strong start to the second half and Brooks is on hand to head home from close range.

We're back underway at the Volkswagen Arena.
Wolfsburg boss Oliver Glasner will be a concerned man at the break as his team have been underwhelming to say the least. Weghorst could have dragged them level, but his penalty miss has summed up the German outfit's performance thus far in the contest.
HALF-TIME: WOLFSBURG 0-1 SHAKHTAR DONETSK
MISS! Weghorst fails to convert from 12 yards as he slips on his run-up and skies the ball over the bar. An embarrasing effort from the Wolfsburg forward.
Brekalo has space to roam in the Shakhtar half, but his offload towards Weghorst is intercepted. It's just not clicking for the home side.
Schlager attempts to drive his team forward, only to be pegged by a fine covering challenge from Ismaily.
Gerhardt lines up a strike from distance for the home side, but it sails well over the bar. Wolfsburg need to find their rhythm here.
Tete cuts inside from the right flank to open up space to shoot on his left, but he pulls a harmless effort wide of the right post.
CLOSE! Taison releases Ismaily down the left flank and he sends a dangerous low ball across the face of goal. It evades Moraes, and Otavio is on hand to steer it behind for a corner.
Patrick lines up an effort from distance following a neat passage of play from the visitors on the edge of the box. He connects well with his strike, but it proves to be a comfortable save for Casteels.
Wolfsburg boss Oliver Glasner will be a concerned man on the bench as his team have been too easily cut open at the back. He may have to make changes at the break.
Taison plays in Tete in acres of space in the right inside channel. He strikes a low effort towards goal, only to see his strike saved by Casteels. However, once again the offside flag was up anyway.
Taison lifts a teasing ball over the top for Moraes, who goes for goal from a tight angle, only to blast his effort over the top. The forward is offside anyway.
Antonio almost releases Moraes behind the Wolfsburg defence, but Brooks gets back to quell the threat from the striker.
OFFSIDE! Schlager works an offload to Mehmedi in the box, but he places his effort from close range wide of the post. He will be relieved to see the offside flag raised.
The home side are still on the back foot. They've not responded well to going behind.
Casteels gets down to his left to make the stop from Kovalenko's weak spot-kick.
MISS! Kovalenko sends a poor penalty towards goal as he goes low to the bottom-right corner. It's tame and Casteels gets down to make a comfortable stop. That could be very costly for Shakhtar in the tie.
Wolfsburg have to regain their composure after conceding aganst the run of play.
Weghorst collides with Ismaily in the air and goes into the book for his challenge.
GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! MORAES HEADS SHAKHTAR IN FRONT!!!! 1-0!!! The visitors take the lead against the run of play and Moraes is there to convert from close range. Ismaily sends a dangerous cross towards the near post and Brooks fails to clear his lines. Taison latches on to the loose ball and nods it over the onrushing Casteels to score a vital away goal.
Brekalo and Weghorst work the ball to Gerhardt to line up a strike at goal, but he cannot force his drive through a wall of Shakhtar defenders.
Mehmedi tries to thread a pass through to the run of Weghorst in the box, but the ball just has too much pace for the forward to collect.
Schlager is already having an effect on the game. He wins a free-kick for his team just inside the Shakhtar half following a challenge by Kovalenko.
Arnold latches on to a loose ball on the edge of the box, but his tame drive at goal is saved with ease by Pyatov.
Steffen blocks a drive from Taison and goes down clutching his ankle. However, after a few seconds he gets to his feet to continue the game.
We're underway in this Europa League clash.
The game tonight is being played in front of an empty Volkswagen Arena due to the coronavirus.
