Newly-crowned Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk completed the domestic double after they defeated former powerhouses Dynamo Kyiv 2-0 in the Cup final today.

Shakhtar's former Arsenal striker Eduardo opened the scoring in the 64th minute, but was sent off 12 minutes later.

However, Shakhtar made light of his premature departure as Brazilian Luiz Adriano, who had set up the opener, sealed victory three minutes from time to give them their seventh victory in the competition.

It rounded off a superb season for Shakhtar who also became the first Ukrainian side to reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals where they lost to Barcelona.
