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
    76
    V. Ahlmann (in) - Kristensen (out) (AaB)
    The right-back was the game's best player during the first half but has had less impact as it has gone on and he makes way.

    A fantastic chance for Aalborg to re-take the lead as a brilliantly weighted pass finds the goalscorer, who takes a touch before trying to lift an effort over the Urko Pardo, which is comfortably saved.

    Alexandrou (APOEL) misses the target.
    The Irish forward is beginning to look dangerous as legs tire but his effort is just wide from the edge of the area.
  • 68
    Risgård (AaB) misses the target.
  • Substitution
    66
    Alexandrou (in) - Charalambides (out) (APOEL)

  • 53

  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Kent Nielsen, the Aalborg coach, will be absolutely delighted with that first half - which, aside from Vinicius's late chance, the home side utterly dominated. Patrick Kristensen was a constant menace to the APOEL defence and capped his display with the cross that assisted Nicolaj Thomsen's 16th-minute opening goal.

  • 42

  • 38
    Pardo (APOEL) makes a save.
  • 38

  • 32
    Risgård (AaB) has an effort on goal.
    Credit must go the player there for skipping over an outstretched leg from APOEL defender Marios Antoniades. The midfielder cuts in from the left, evades Antoniades, but his shot is not troubling Pardo.

    The Danish side take the lead with the first shot on target from either side.

  • 15
