MILAN - Inter drew 1-1 with Shakhtar Donetsk behind closed doors at the Giuseppe Meazza on Wednesday and go through to the UEFA Champions League group stage courtesy of a 3-1 aggregate victory. Alvaro Recoba added to Martins and Adriano's goals in the Ukraine a fortnight ago before Elano pulled one back for Mircea Lucescu's side.

Uruguayan ace Recoba, who partnered Adriano in attack in last year's qualifying victory over Basel in Milan, put Inter 3-0 up on aggregate in the 12th minute, finding the bottom right corner with a low, left-foot shot from the edge of the penalty area.

Shakhtar reduced the deficit on 25 minutes from what was an almost identical move to the one that saw Veron decide Saturday's Italian Super Cup final at the Delle Alpi. Marica raced past Materazzi on the right wing then pulled back for Elano to slot home from eleven yards.

The victory over two legs sees Inter join Serie A rivals Juventus, AC Milan and Udinese in the draw for the group stage of the Champions League, which takes place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco at 16:00CET on Thursday.
