Newcastle United FC and FC Metalist Kharkiv drew an unexpected blank in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League round of 32 encounter, with both sides uncharacteristically indecisive in front of goal.

Having sold celebrated attacking midfielder Taison to Ukrainian rivals FC Shakhtar Donetsk during the winter break, Metalist lacked their usual menace in the final third, while their 37-year-old goalkeeper Olexandr Goryainov grabbed an unexpected share of the limelight, making crucial interventions to stop Papiss Cissé and Moussa Sissoko from seizing the initiative for Alan Pardew's men.
