As early as the first half, Shakhtar's Brazilian midfield Tete sealed a double and a recently naturalized striker Junior Moraes left Inhulets almost desperate.

In the last 45 minutes, Inhulets did little to get back on track so the game saw no dramatic turns alike those delivered by Liverpool and Tottenham in the recent  UEFA Champions League and Europa League semis, respectively.

Manor Solomon made it 4:0 with a beautiful finish just three minutes into the pitch after replacing Kovalenko.

Shakhtar claimed the title for the fourth consecutive year, bringing the total count to 13, which is Ukraine's record.

Inhulets, in turn, was the first ever First League club to reach the Cup Finals.
