SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain (AP) - Alex Teixeira struck twice to give Shakhtar Donetsk a 2-0 victory over Real Sociedad in Group A of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Teixeira drilled a low shot into the net from an assist by Douglas Costa in the 65thminute to break the deadlock, and the Brazilian then followed up with a superb goal in the 87th.

Surging into the area on the left and looking as if he would run out of space, Teixeira suddenly unleashed a powerful low shot inside the far post, beating stranded goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Teixeira also scored twice in Shakhtar's first three European matches last season.

Sociedad was left to rue missing the first chance of the match, when Mexican forward Carlos Vela shot just wide in the 25th minute.
