PORTO, Portugal (AP) - Vincent Aboubakar scored a late equalizer to grab a 1-1 draw for FC Porto against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday in their last Champions League Group H match, a game that was a formality as both clubs were already sure of a place in the knockout round.

The Cameroon striker’s goal three minutes from the end cancelled out Taras Stepanenko’s 50th-minute header from Bernard’s corner.

The Stadium of the Dragon witnessed a low-key encounter, with both teams resting some regular starters and producing few scoring chances.

The Portuguese club, a two-time European champion, finished the group phase unbeaten on 14 points from six games.

Shakhtar ended with nine points and qualified for the knockout round for the third time.
