Socceroo keeper Mat Ryan’s Club Brugge have been knocked out of the Europa League after a 1-0 loss away to Dnipro in Kiev.
The Belgian side were caught on the break with eight minutes of regular time left.
Shakhov latched onto a pass from Rotan before he drove a left-footed shot past Ryan with the aid of a slight deflection.
The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg in Belgium last week.
The loss to Dnipro means Club Brugge’s dreams of a treble are over. The Belgians lead the domestic league with seven games to play, while already winning the Belgian Cup for the first time since 2007.
