Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    That late goal will give Metalist a boost going into next week's second leg but they will have to play the return fixture without both first choice central defenders who are suspended after picking up yellow cards tonight. Sporting, meanwhile, extend their unbeaten home record in Europe to 11 games and will still be favourites to progress with FC Schalke 04 or Athletic Club lying in wait for the winners.
