General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +5 FULL TIME! NEWCASTLE ARE THROUGH! The visitors finally get the ball into the right area as Sissoko chases it down in the corner, before the referee ends the match.
90' +4 Newcastle can't get out of their own half, but they are clearing everything Metalist are throwing in the box. Into the last minute in Ukraine...
90' +3 Villagra pushes forward, cuts inside and tries an audacious effort from 25 yards which Krul saves easily. Surely it's all over now?
90' +2 Metalist are camped in the visitors' half but still can't find a goal. Blanco whips in a cross from the left-hand side but it goes straight into the arms of a grateful Krul.
90' T. Krul gets yellow.
Krul is then booked for taking too long with the free kick. We'll have five added minutes, but Newcastle have one foot in the next round.
88' J. Cristaldo gets yellow.
Villagra pays it into the middle but Coloccini hacks it away. The ball comes straight back in through Sosa and Cristaldo goes in hard on Krul, earning himself a booking. The goalkeeper - who has made some superb saves tonight - had to gather at the second time of asking, giving the striker a chance, but he managed to smother the ball.
87' Fininho gets yellow.
G. Bigirimana enters the game and replaces Y. Cabaye.
86' Another save by Tim Krul! Willian gets on the end of a corner and flicks it towards the near post, but the Newcastle goalkeeper shows superb reflexes to keep it out.
85' Cabaye is down on the ground after a challenge with Sebastian Blanco. It looks like a knee injury but the midfielder is back up and running.
83' Marveaux shows good skill to collect it in midfield, but Newcastle can't keep it long as Sissoko fails to reach a pass. Time running out for Metalist to get back in this.
