Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Leverkusen's players embrace in the centre of the pitch as Sami Hyypiä guides his side into the last 16. They have Manchester United to thank for beating Shakhtar 1-0 but Leverkusen deserved their win after hitting the post either side of Ömer Toprak's 49th-minute close-range strike.

  • 90+2
    Ansotegi (Real Sociedad) misses the target.
    The Spanish side have yet to score at home in Group A and that is surely their last chance to do so. The defender has a free header around eight yards from goal but can only head just to the right of the post with Leno motionless in the visitors' goal.

    Kruse crosses and the substitute striker stretches his left leg and the ball loops agonisingly wide from the Swiss.

    Bender does brilliantly to get a cross in and the South Korean does well to take the ball on his chest but his effort is too high from around 15 yards and goes out for a goal kick.

    Agirretxe (Real Sociedad) misses the target.

    Kiessling (Leverkusen) has an effort on goal.

  • 49
    Kiessling (Leverkusen) has an effort on goal.

    46
    Kruse (in) - Hegeler (out) (Leverkusen)
    Jens Hegeler may have returned to the starting lineup tonight but his match only last for 45 minutes. 25-year-old Kruse, a forward, comes on to make his fourth UEFA Champions League appearance of the season.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    It is a massive half for the visitors who must go on the attack if they are to progress to the knockout stages of this competition.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Leverkusen should be satisfied with the situation at half-time but, in part, due to the fact that Shakhtar are not in front against Manchester United - who have lost their last two league matches at home. Leverkusen have hit the post from a free kick but will hope to threaten more frequently from closer range as this match wears on.
