His first appearance came in a 1-1 against Dnipro on 4 March 2012. He came on as a 64th minute substitute for Alex Teixeira.[4] His first start since returning to the club came in a 2-1 victory over Illichivets.[5] He netted his first goal of his second spell with Shakhtar in a 4-0 win over Chornomorets Odesa[6] He finished the season with 1 goal from 9 appearances, 7 of which came in the league.

The 2012-13 season started well with Ilsinho coming on as a substitute in the 2-0 Super Cup victory over Metalurh Donetsk. He scored a goal in his first two league matches, the first of which came in a 6-0 victory over Arsenal Kyiv,[7] with the second coming against Hoverla in a 3-1 win.[8] He scored a goal in a 2-0 win against Metalist Kharkiv on 7 October.[9] On 19 October he netted the equalising goal in a 2-1 victory against Illichivets.[10]
