Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Grega Sever, Stadion Ljudski vrt: A frenetic ending to a play-off first leg that began with an eventful opening. Callum McGregor and Damjan Bohar exchanged goals inside the first 14 minutes and though Celtic went closest to making it 2-1, it was Maribor who were pushing hardest at the end. Next Tuesday's second instalment at Celtic Park could be a cracker.
