Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    The home side will take a 1-0 lead to Lisbon next week, and few would argue that they did not merit it. They were denied by the woodwork three times, including Cristian's penalty at the end of the first-half, before Egemen Korkmaz finally squeezed the ball in (via the post, obviously). The late booking to Moussa Sow, meaning he will be suspended for the second leg, may prove costly, though.
  • 90+3
    Salvio (Benfica) has a shot blocked.
  • Yellow Card
    90
    Webó (Fenerbahçe) is cautioned by the referee.
    Pierre Webó kicks the ball away in frustration after being caught offside, meaning he will miss the second leg. The anguished look on Aykut Kocaman's face says it all.

  • Substitution
    46
    Gaitán (in) - Aimar (out) (Benfica)

  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    The first half draws to a close in dramatic fashion, as Cristian cracked the post from the penalty spot at the death. Sow had already been denied by the bar from a header, but somehow Benfica have made it to the break goalless.
