A second-half penalty from Shola Ameobi and some goalkeeping heroics from Tim Krul were enough to send Newcastle United FC through to the UEFA Europa League round of 16 at the expense of FC Metalist Kharkiv.

The only goal of the tie came in the 64th minute when Moussa Sissoko was brought down by Metalist custodian Olexandr Goryainov and Ameobi fired the ball high into the net. Both teams had chances but the goalkeepers were outstanding, particularly Krul who thwarted Jonathan Cristaldo on several occasions as Metalist put Newcastle under heavy pressure towards the end.
