Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Giorgos Donis, the APOEL coach, will be absolutely ecstatic with this result. Aalborg dominated chances and possession but Vinicius's 54th-minute equaliser gave the Cypriot champions a crucial away goal and cancelled out the opening goal from Nicolaj Thomsen - who should have scored a second on 73 minutes.
  • Substitution
    90+3
    Manduca (in) - Sheridan (out) (APOEL)
    As expected, the Irish forward makes way for the 34-year-old Brazilian who will make a nuisance of himself for the last couple of minutes.
  • Substitution
    86
    Thrane (in) - Thomsen (out) (AaB)
    The goalscorer comes off and will know that he should have had a second tonight. 20-year-old Mathias Thrane comes on in his place for the final few minutes.
  • Substitution
    82
    Papazoglou (in) - De Vincenti (out) (APOEL)
  • Substitution
    76
    Dalsgaard (in) - Helenius (out) (AaB)
    The Aston Villa loanee was fairly quiet tonight and the 25-year-old comes on in his place.
