As it happened

  1. 2229: 

    Well that's all from me tonight. Join us here tomorrow night for the massive one from Madrid.


  2. 2224: 
    Celtic fans

    There will be plenty of reflecting going on for Celtic fans tonight after a spirited but ultimately fruitless display. We've all been there...

  3. 2218: 

    A titanic tie is on the horizon tomorrow night then - as Real Madrid host Manchester United.

    A massive, massive game.

    The other Champions League tie sees Shakhtar Donetsk take on Borussia Dortmund in what should be a very easy-on-the-eye affair.

  4. 2211: 
    Valencia 1-2 Paris St-Germain

    Paris St-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's red card: "It was a normal tackle and it was nothing special and I was surprised by the red card. We played really well, we have to be happy but at the end it was not good for us. Valencia is a good team, we have played the first half, but now we have to play second half and we have to pay attention."

    Ancelotti on David Beckham: "He trained one week alone and tomorrow he starts with his team-mates. I don't think he will have a problem to play and it will help us to be better."

  5. 2210: 

    @Mark_A_Notley: "Chelsea need only look at Pirlo to convince them to tie down Lampard for a few more years. They get better when you doubt them!"

  6. 2205: 

    @Denzel1978: "Result of the night Bournemouth winning at Crewe! What a job Eddie Howe has done to get them top of the table."

    @WillSmithy: "Bournemouth are top of League One, with two Pitman goals giving the Cherries a win at Crewe. Up the cherries."

  7. 2203: 

    Coventry say they have allowed manager Mark Robins to begin negotiations with Huddersfield after the 43-year-old intimated he would like to join the Terriers.

    Sky Blues chief executive Tim Fisher said in a statement: "We have had more than one club interested in Mark in the last few weeks and we have made every effort to ensure he stays with us.

    "We talked to him at length today and he met the owner. Once we had done everything we could and it was obvious that he was still interested in talking to Huddersfield, we had no choice other than to let him do so.

    "We are just hoping that when he weighs up his options and opportunities, he will see the great progress to date and the support he has from fans and management alike, coupled with the potential in Coventry, and decide to stay."Good luck with that one Tim...

  8. 2158: 
    Andrea Pirlo

    Very honest words from Neil Lennon after that defeat. But we saw another faultless performance from Andrea Pirlo in the Juventus midfield. What were AC Milan thinking when they allowed him to leave?

  9. 2154: 
    Celtic 0-3 Juventus

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon: "The scoreline flatters Juventus. For 70-odd minutes we were by far the better side but you can't give away sloppy goals. We took a gamble on Efe Ambrose but he was poor for the first goal and he missed a great chance to equalise. We switched off for the second and third goals."

    On the pushing and pulling at corners: "I'd like to ask the referee is the game different in Spain and Italy? Every time my player moved in the area it was a foul. We played Juventus 12 years ago and Chris Sutton won a penalty for the same thing.

    "We need a miracle now. That's the harsh reality of Champions League football."

  10. 2152:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-3 Juventus

    "I think if you get past the last 16 in to the last eight, everybody has a chance, Juventus look a better side than they did at the start of the season against Chelsea. I suspect you will get a lot more of Pirlo in the later rounds, he won't be stopped by the better teams like he was tonight and against Chelsea. I wouldn't say they were favourites to win it but it wouldn't surprise me if they make the semi-finals."

  11. 2151: 

    James from London on text: "Could be a very stupid red card from Ibrahimovic. PSG looked so comfortable before that Valencia goal, and now no top scorer for the return leg, and only one goal in front. Not so comfortable any more!"

  12. 2149: 

    Gillingham stay second in League Two after a goalless draw at York, while Cheltenham move into fifth with a 2-1 win at Southend. Aldershot are still one place from the foot of the table after losing 2-1 at Morecambe.

  13. 2149: 

    @eddieemiowei: "Can't blame Ambrose for this - what was Lennon thinking letting him play so soon after the Nations Cup?"

    @vivalahazy: "Fact is the better team won, Ambrose was poor, shouldn't have played. Pirlo yet again a class above. Untouchable"

  14. 2148: 
    Celtic 0-3 Juventus

    "File under anti-climax," says BBC Radio Scotland reporter Chick Young. "The tie is over. There is no way in the world Juventus will lose three or four goals at home."

  15. 2146: 

    Bournemouth are top of League One, with two Brett Pitman goals giving the Cherries a win at Crewe after the home side had cancelled out Pitman's first-half penalty.

    Sheffield United's 2-0 win at Bury moves the Blades into the play-off positions, while it's as you were at the bottom, with Hartlepool propping up the division after drawing 0-0 at home to fellow-strugglers Portsmouth. At least Pompey avoided their 10th straight defeat.

  16. 2146: 

    Hull have moved into second place in the Championship, with Ahmed Elmohamady striking late after Derby had equalised through Jamie Ward. Curtis Main's header helped Middlesbrough secure their first points of 2013 at home to Leeds, while a Vicente penalty saw Brighton earn a draw at home to Brighton.

  17. 2144:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 live

    "Celtic for the vast majority of this game can walk away with their heads held high, they haven't been disgraced and played well for large parts of the game. Juventus were excellent at reading the play, that's what good defenders do they read the play. It isn't always about power or pace, the best English defenders have always read the game well. "

  18. 2143: 

    @kbasker101: "Difference between good teams and great teams. Good teams have to play well for 90 mins, great teams turn it on for 10."

    @thedashingdon: "Not taking anything away from Juventus but Celtic could have had a penalty for each corner they've had. A foul is a foul"

    @UMEOGU: "Flop of the match. Efe Ambrose, he's still trying to swap shirts instead of walking off with his head down."

  19. 2142: 
    FULL-TIME- Middlesbrough 1-0 Leeds

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum reports: "In five minutes of added time, there was plenty of late drama. Curtis Main was sent off for a second bookable offence - although the decision looked harsh, and moments later Jason Steele denied Habib Habibou with a fine tip over to maintain the lead. Phew!"

  20. 2141: 

    So all Celtic need to do now is win by three clear goals in Turin on 6 March. Then we would have extra-time. Easy?

  21. 2138: 
    FULL-TIME- Celtic 0-3 Juventus

    Juventus have 'done a job' on Celtic tonight. A 3-0 win that flatters them, no doubt, but Celtic were ruthlessly punished for their errrors.

  22. 2137: 

    We are deep into stoppage time now at an almost silent Celtic Park.

  23. 2137:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-3 Juventus

    "Celtic had two options. To play the way they did tonight or play the way they did against Barcelona, defend and try to break sides down. I was happy before the game that they didn't do that, maybe in retrospect a lot of Celtic fans wouldn't want that now."

  24. 2136: 

    BBC Leeds report that Mark Robins will hold 'face-to-face talks' with Huddersfield on Wednesday. Looks like he will be the Terriers' new boss.

  25. 2136: 
    FULL-TIME- Valencia 1-2 Paris St-Germain

    Well that got interesting didn't it?

  26. 2136: 

    @rish_vrma: "Not many teams go to Celtic Park and silence the Celtic roar. We have. A brilliant disciplined away performance."

    @MonkJammas: "Fulham beat Juve 4-1 to knock them out, Celtic just need to replicate that in the second leg... easy?"

    @jamesarbenson: "Juventus have done a vintage Italian job on Celtic. That's how you play away from home in Europe."

  27. 2134: 
    RED CARD- Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Shocking few minutes for PSG as striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is sent-off for going over the top in a challenge on Andres Guardado. That could be a three-game ban, and that could be a big blow to PSG.

  28. 2132: 
    GOAL- Valencia 1-2 Paris St-Germain - Adil Rami (90 mins)

    This could be a pivotal goal for Valencia. Centre-half Adil Rami ghosts in at the back post to convert a deep free-kick with a close-range prod. Woeful marking from PSG and a lifeline for the hosts.

  29. 2131: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Celtic 0-3 Juventus

    Mirko Vucinic is given a rest as Nicolas Anelka comes on for Juventus.

    Anelka equals Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Champions League record of playing for six different teams in the main competition.

  30. 2131: 
    Middlesbrough 1-0 Leeds

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "The relief is palpable here from the majority of the Riverside crowd, and it's all thanks to Curtis Main's header to give Middlesbrough the lead. Ishmael Miller was the architect, bursting from central midfield out to the left-hand side, and curling the ball towards the backpost for Main to loop over Paddy Kenny. Leeds game-plan will be ripped up now - they have seven minutes to come back."

  31. 2131: 

    Stoke striker Michael Owen on Twitter: "Gutted. Celtic deserve so much more. They have been outstanding. Particularly annoying having witnessed so many dirty tricks by the Italians."

  32. 2129:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-3 Juventus

    "Ambrose clearly at fault, too slow and the ball got caught at his feet. It's sad to say but I think Celtic's journey in the Champions League may be over. They will look back at those first few moments when they conceded so early and had to change their style."

  33. 2129: 

    @TheLeeJordan: "If that is the top team in Italy, I'm glad I don't tune in, Juventus have been so average, it's unreal."

    @oldtoyshop: "2-0 Flatters Juve. Celtic will bemoan the 'penalties' that could and should have been."

    @Bridgettoofar: "Why is it such a shock. Italian team, soaking up pressure, two attacks, two goals."

  34. 2127: 
    GOAL- Celtic 0-3 Juventus - Mirko Vucinic (83 mins)

    Goodnight Vienna.

    Efe Ambrose is at fault again, with the Celtic defender being caught horribly in possession by Claudio Marchisio. He picks the right pass at the right time to send Mirko Vucinic in, and he drives low beyond Fraser Forster. Harsh scoreline maybe, but an emphatic win for the Old Lady.

  35. 2125: 

    There are 10 minutes left in our Champions League ties, it looks like away wins for both sides - but that could still change. Maybe.

  36. 2124:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-2 Juventus

    "Celtic from the first minute have had to push up, Juventus have had only two centre backs to get past whereas Celtic have had to face the lines of defence that have defended so well. For me Celtic will be out unless they get a goal tonight."

  37. 2124: 
    FULL-TIME- Leicester 1-2 Huddersfield

    Huddersfield are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup, where they will face Wigan.

  38. 2121: 
    GOAL- Celtic 0-2 Juventus - Claudio Marchisio (77 mins)

    No doubting the scorer of this one. Celtic will feel hard done to but Juventus have survived a scrap and now land a quality punch of their own.

    Alessandro Matri provides a deft touch to flick it into the path of Claudio Marchisio, the midfielder has the presence of mind to cut inside a tired Scott Brown challenge before smashing past Fraser Forster at his near post. A potential knockout blow.

  39. 2120: 
    YELLOW CARD- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Two more bookings for pushing and shoving at corners as Scott Brown and Simone Padoin are shown cards - this is ridiculous now. Padoin continues to hold Brown as the cross comes in. No penalty.

  40. 2121: 
    Middlesbrough 0-0 Leeds

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "The Riverside is rocking, and only Leeds goalkeeper Paddy Kenny is keeping the roof from coming off with a string of terrific saves. He denied Grant Leadbitter's goal-bound drive and then kept out his diving header after a penalty-box scramble. My it's tense and the Boro fans and players know it."

  41. 2119: 
    CLOSE!- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Big chance for the hosts as Nelson Valdez drops on to the loose ball - but he can only shank his shot into the side-netting.

  42. 2117: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Celtic 0-1 Juventus
    Juventus coach Antonio Conte

    As we enter the last 20 minutes, Tony Watt is thrown on for Celtic. The teenager scored against Barcelona of course, will he worry Juve coach Antonio Conte?

  43. 2116: 

    Bournemouth will go top of League One if they win tonight and they are ahead through a Brett Pitman penalty just before the hour mark at Crewe. Sheffield United are 2-0 up at Bury to move into the play-off places as it stands.

    In League Two, Gillingham will stay in second place if their visit to York stays at 0-0, while at the other end of the table it is goalless at Morecambe, which means Aldershot will stay one place off the foot of the division.

  44. 2115: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    PSG almost have a killer third goal as Clement Chantome sweeps home but the flag was raised for offside. Just over 15 minutes remain.

  45. 2114: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    It's still all going off every time there is a corner. Scott Brown ends up face down in the turf after a shove from Stephan Lichsteiner, who is playing the role of enforcer tonight for Juve. Still nothing given. It's more of a line-out than a corner.

  46. 2114: 

    In the Championship, Hull took the lead just after half time against Derby through substitute Gedo, who scored with only his second touch after coming on at the start of the second half. A penalty from Vicente has drawn Brighton level with Blackburn, and it's still goalless between Middlesbrough and Leeds.

  47. 2111: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Juventus have barely been out of their half since half-time but they almost kill the game off. A strong break down the right ends with a cut back for Mirko Vucinic, who leathers in a low shot which is flying in until Kelvin Wilson brilliantly blocks inside the six-yard box. A warning sign for Celtic though.

  48. 2111:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Celtic needed that, there were five or 10 minutes where I looked at the bench and wondered whether Neil Lennon had anything to change it as there was nothing through the centre but they've come back in to it now. You have to remember Juventus are a great side but they are human they will make mistakes, you hope Celtic will capitalise when they do."

  49. 2109: 

    We have 25 minutes left in our Champions League ties, and 10 in the FA Cup. It's now or never boys...

  50. 2108: 

    @James0270: "Why don't Celtic just sit back? Chelsea proved that you don't need to attack to win the Champions League."

    @abditicha: "Sir Alex Ferguson must be pulling his hair out for missing out on Lucas Moura. He's tormenting the Valencia defence."

    @nadicat: "This is the classic example of a lucky strike. The way Celtic are playing they should at least be equal to Juve."

  51. 2108: 
    CLOSE!- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Ezequiel Lavezzi has just had two chances to kill this tie off but makes a mess of them both. First, he somehow shoots wide from eight yards out after Vicente Guaita pushes Zlatan Ibrahimovic's shot straight to him, and he then fails to beat the Valencia keeper with a dodgy chip following Marco Verratti's pass. Profligate.

  52. 2107: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    What a chance! Celtic simply have to score.

    Charlie Mulgrew delivers the perfect cross from deep on the left, Efe Ambrose is all alone in the heart of the penalty area but he miscues his header down into the turf and it's easily held by Gianluigi Buffon. He has to score.

  53. 2106:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Juventus may have found it more difficult if Samaras had been fit, instead you would be hoping Wanyama could ghost in from the left but for me he's been a shadow of the player we saw earlier in the season."

  54. 2104: 
    Middlesbrough 0-0 Leeds

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "Middlesbrough have maintained the pressure on Leeds at the start of the second half but again the visitors defence has stood firm, with Lee Peltier on his toes to edge Mustapha Carayol as he looked to let fly. Boro boss Tony Mowbray is stalking his technical area."

  55. 2103: 
    GOAL- Leicester 1-2 Huddersfield - Sean Scannell (75 mins)

    Shades of Ricky Villa as Huddersfield lead! A Leicester corner is cleared to Sean Scannell who picks it up on the halfway line and sets off down the left. He manages to wriggle in between Paul Konchesky and Matt James before dinking the ball in. Wigan, get yourselves ready for a trip to Huddersfield...

  56. 2103: 

    Mikael Lustig is off for Celtic, clutching at his thigh, as Adam Matthews replaces him. There are 30 minutes remaining for the Bhoys to get a goal.

  57. 2102: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    Leicester have been on top since the break with both Marko Futacs and David Nugent going close with close-range headers, but Huddersfield were within a great save from Kasper Schmeichel of taking the lead as the Dane went full-length to palm away Scott Arfield's snap-shot.

    There are 18 minutes left.

  58. 2102:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "I think Celtic have to think about a substitute, it's not really worked with James Forrest yet, there's not enough creativity going through the central area. The three Juventus centre backs are reading it perfectly, Bonucci hasn't missed a thing tonight."

  59. 2100: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Neil Lennon is readying his substitutes as we approach the hour mark - but here's another penalty shout! Mikael Lustig delivers another excellent cross and James Forrest hits the deck under the ball. Penalty? Nothing given.

  60. 2057: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Neil Lennon is beyond angry, he's just bemused now. Emilio Izaguirre goes to ground after an enterprising run up the middle but referee Alberto Mallenco waves play on. Celtic fans urge their side forwards.

  61. 2056: 

    @ben_s_downey: "At 2-0 and with PSG so good on the counter attack, I can't see anyway back for Valencia. Extremely dangerous side in the next round."

    @James_Ofori "Mancini are you watching PSG? This is how big spenders should do."

  62. 2055: 
    Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Valencia have started the second period brightly as Roberto Soldado almost forces in a header at the back post. PSG replace the spring-heeled Lucas Moura with Clement Chantome, which is a shame.

  63. 2052: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Plenty more up-an-at-em stuff from Celtic as they start where they left off. Kris Commons miscues a volley into the air, and Gary Hooper challenges Gigi Buffon for the ball, it squirms loose and Juventus survive. Celtic pushing hard for a goal at the start of the second period.

  64. 2051: 

    Smart work from Huddersfield - they may be an hour into their game at Leicester but the Terriers confirm that they have been granted permission by Coventry City to speak to Mark Robins.

  65. 2050: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Valencia coach Ernesto Valverde makes two changes at half-time to try and wrest control of this game. Nelson Valdez is on for Jonas, while Sergio Canales replaces Ever Banega. They are going with two up front now. As well they might.

  66. 2049: 
    KICK-OFF- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    And we are back under way in Glasgow. Can Celtic respond?

  67. 2047: 
    KICK-OFF- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Can Valencia do anything about this?

  68. 2046: 

    @C_J_Adamson: "Ref needs to get a grip on the Juventus defence at corners. Hooper is being manhandled out of every one."

    @Jlander90: "We've been brilliant and terrible all at once. Classic Celtic. "

    @notdalewinton: "Lichsteiner would've been sent off three times in the Premier League for that 'defending' at corners. Not looking at the ball at all."

    @huseinrajabali "What is the point of the official behind the goal? Missed the ball crossing the line and Lichsteiner trying to bear hug Hooper."

  69. 2045: 

    Bournemouth could go top of League One if they win tonight, but they are being held 0-0 at Crewe so far. It's also goalless in the battle of the basement between Hartlepool and Portsmouth.

    In League Two, Gillingham's attempt to move to the top is being thwarted by York, who are holding the second-placed side 0-0. Cheltenham have taken a two-goal lead away to Southend and will move up into the play-off places if it stays like that.

  70. 2044: 

    In the Championship, Blackburn's decent run of form under Michael Appleton continues. They have not conceded a goal in five and a quarter hours, and they lead at Brighton through Scott Dann's towering header. It's goalless in the other two games at Hull and Middlesbrough.

  71. 2042: 
    Rod Stewart

    Rod Stewart? Check. Billy Connolly? Check.

    Snoop? No check. As Meat Loaf would say, two out of three ain't bad on the celeb front at Celtic Park.

  72. 2039: 

    Stoke City striker Michael Owen on Twitter: "I'm hating this nonsense on corners. The Italians are renowned for it. Until Refs pluck up the courage to give a pen it won't change."

  73. 2038:  
    BBC Radio 5 live sports extraLeicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    Former West Brom goalkeeper Dean Kiely on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra at the King Power Stadium: "Both teams need a little bit more quality in the detail in their passing. Leicester need to get the ball into David Nugent and Marko Futacs with some quality. The majority of the efforts in the first half were from distance which suggests to me that both sides are struggling to connect with their strikers."

  74. 2037: 
    HALF-TIME- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain

    Alistair Magowan reports: "Paris St-Germain have had little of the ball compared to Valencia, but sacre bleu they have used it well. Not great by Valencia keeper Vicente Guaita for both PSG goals, while former Manchester United target Lucas Moura has been superb down the right. Who needs David Beckham?"

  75. 2037:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Celtic are definitely not out of it, being 1-0 down in the Champions League could be considered a disaster but Celtic are capable of scoring in this game there's no doubt about that. The question is whether they can keep Juventus out and that's what worries me."

  76. 2036: 
    Alessandro Matri scores

    As we expected, that Juventus goal has now been credited to Alessandro Matri, with his low shot creeping under Fraser Forster and over the line before Kelvin Wilson could clear.

  77. 2034: 
    KICK-OFF- Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    Back under way in Leicester.

  78. 2034: 

    Borris in Ketering on text: "Juventus are so skilful on the ball. So it's highly irritating how they keep pleading to the referee every time a Celtic player makes a fair challenge. Just get on with it."

    Craig in Bristol on text: "From a neutral perspective, I'm really impressed with Celtic tonight. If they keep this up they will get something tonight. Good luck boys."

  79. 2033: 
    HALF-TIME- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Massive jeers from the stands as the half-time whistle goes. That was like the early rounds of a Ricky Hatton fight. Maybe lacking in a bit of class but full on intensity and passion from Celtic.

    Have they punched themselves out? Or can they land a shot in the second half?

  80. 2032: 
    HALF-TIME- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain
  81. 2032: 
    Middlesbrough 0-0 Leeds (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "So close for Middlesbrough, Paddy Kenny flies out to deny Faris Haroun on the edge of the box just before the break. Peach of a pass by Josh McEachran. Not long till half-time."

  82. 2032: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Someone is getting sent-off in Glasgow. There, I said it.

  83. 2031:  
    MOTD presenter Gary Lineker

    "PSG two up in Valencia. Beckham making all the difference by his sheer presence."

  84. 2030:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Fabulous intensity from the home side, I think Celtic know man for man Juventus are a better team without this intensity. The question is can Celtic keep up the intensity for a full 90 minutes? With this crowd behind them they could."


    @nlenwehr: "As a neutral there is no way not to be backing Celtic in this one - great crowd, great effort - Champions League worthy!"

    @YGBJammy: "Feel so sorry for Gary Hooper getting pushed around and the ref's too feeble to punish the defender."

    @Akorebami: "Celtic enjoying decent spell of possession but their final pass has let them down on couple of occasions as Juve look to soak up pressure."

  86. 2029:  
    BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic ParkCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Gary Hooper and Stephan Lichtsteiner are both booked for a prolonged episode of grappling inside the six-yard box at a corner. But after that, despite the howls of protest from the stands, it continues, with the Juve man seemingly the chief culprit and the referee does nothing."

  87. 2027: 
    GOAL- Valencia 0-2 Paris St-Germain - Javier Pastore (43 mins)

    Lucas Moura has been excellent for PSG down their right-hand side, he is rapid and tricky to boot. He again dumps a defender on their back, cuts into the penalty area before picking out Javier Pastore in the D. His shot is low and hard but again goalkeeper Vicente Guaita doesn't cover himself in glory, the ball going in off his left ankle.

  88. 2026: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Gary Hooper is booked as he continues to be pulled from pillar to post every time Juventus defend a corner. It's like a Royal Rumble in that penalty area.

    Victor Wanyama then has a free header from another corner, but plants it over the top. That was a very solid chance for Celtic.

  89. 2026: 
    Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    Nothing to prise these sides apart, as they go into the break level once again. Adam Clayton's humdinger of a free-kick put Huddersfield ahead in their FA Cup third-round replay, but their lead lasted just over two minutes before Michael Keane poked home to restore parity. Since then both sides have been restricted to efforts from distance with Paul Gallagher going close for the Foxes and Scott Arfield not too far away for Huddersfield.

  90. 2025: 
    CLOSE!- Valencia 0-1 Paris St-Germain
    David Beckham (centre) watches his PSG side at Valencia

    PSG have been on the back foot for most of the half but a touch of class almost buys them a second goal. Javier Pastore dumps a defender on his backside with a lovely turn, and he lays it back to Ezequiel Lavezzi, but the Argentine shoots straight at the goalkeeper. David Beckham watches on.

  91. 2021: 

    Celtic continue to play a high-tempo, high pressing game. They have Juventus worried here but that final ball just isn't right at the moment. Charlie Mulgrew almost tames a cross on his left foot but Juventus clear their lines.

  92. 2022:  
    BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic ParkCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Celtic captain Scott Brown is right in the thick of things here, trying to make things happen for his side. But his frustration is obvious and he's been involved in a couple of spats - one with Andrea Pirlo, following which the Italian maestro left him standing with a swivel of his hips. Then Brown had an off-the-ball kick at another opponent, which - fortunately for him - wasn't seen by an official."

  93. 2020:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Celtic have to play to their own strengths and let Juventus know that they are in a game here. When they're playing in the SPL they wear teams down by playing so well in the final third. They haven't done it that much tonight but they're beginning to make an impact in the game."

  94. 2020: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Half an hour gone at Celtic Park, where it is still deafening. Celtic will be pleased with how they have played - but just how costly will that soft goal prove to be?

  95. 2019: 
    Middlesbrough 0-0 Leeds (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "Former Leeds defender Jonathan Woodgate denies his old club on the line to spare Jason Steele's blushes after the keeper slipped to allow Ross McCormack a chance to score. It was a rare breakaway for the visitors with Boro winning the midfield battle but failing to really test Paddy Kenny."

  96. 2018: 
    HALF-TIME- Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield
  97. 2016: 

    Goals really are at a premium so far tonight, with Akpo Sodje and Paul Reid giving Scunthorpe a two-goal advantage over Carlisle the only goals at the halfway stage of all seven games in League One.

    Not many more in League Two, with Cheltenham ahead at Southend while Bradford have taken the lead at Wycombe.

  98. 2015: 

    Three games in the Championship, with Scott Dann's header for Blackburn at Brighton the only goal so far. It's goalless at Middlesbrough and Hull.

  99. 2015: 

    Tom in Worcester on text: "Celtic are playing great football for a neutral to watch, it's a shame Juventus are playing the long ball like Stoke."

    Joe in Sussex on text: "I'm sure if Fulham managed to beat Juventus then Celtic can."

  100. 2014: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Almost one of the great Champions League goals!

    Mikael Lustig swings in a fine cross from the Celtic right, it is behind Kris Commons but he improvises an overhead kick with his left foot which sails just past the far post. A brilliant effort.

  101. 2013: 

    @lnutt87: "Celtic have come back after the early set back. And you cannot fault the crowd what an atmosphere."

    @phil_boor: "Celtic must be gutted to have given away that early goal, apart from that they've started really well."

    @stokesy_85: "For me that goal means Celtic are already out, their only way through was by keeping a clean sheet tonight."

  102. 2011: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Juventus almost pick their way through with another ball over the top of that Celtic backline. Mirko Vicinic is in but Fraser Forster is off his line quickly to force him wide and the danger is gone. It's coming to the boil.

  103. 2010: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Calm down boys, calm down. Scott Brown and Andrea Pirlo have a nibble at each other after a tasty challenge in midfield before Victor Wanyama has another rush of blood to the head, rifling well wide from range when he had players to his left.

  104. 2008: 
    Juventus celebrate

    Replays suggest that that Juventus goal will be changed to an Alessandro Matri strike - his shot appeared to be just over the line before Kelvin Wilson cleared it. Celtic continue to pressure well though, they have responded well.

  105. 2007: 
    Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    It exploded into life with two goals in the opening seven minutes, but this FA Cup contest is bubbling under after an exciting start. Leicester's French playmaker Anthony Knockaert has looked lively on the left flank, with plenty of support from Paul Konchesky, and looks the likeliest source of a breakthrough. There is not a lot of competition in that category though. Ten minutes of the first half remain for someone to grab the game by the scruff of the neck.

  106. 2007:  
    BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic ParkCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Celtic Park was understandably stunned by that early setback. But the crowd and the home side have responded well. It looks like we're going to have a very open game, with Gigi Buffon already having to look lively to keep out Wanyama and Commons."

  107. 2006:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "Gary Hooper is getting pulled here there and everywhere, and the frustration is beginning to show. At this level against those types of players you can't let yourself get frustrated like that."

  108. 2005: 
    CLOSE!- Valencia 0-1 Paris St-Germain

    Good chance for Valencia, as Ever Banega picks up a bouncing ball on the edge of the area and screws his shot wide.

  109. 2003: 
    Valencia 0-1 Paris St-Germain

    Bar the minute either side of that PSG goal, Valencia have bossed this one. They've not called Salvatore Sirigu into serious action though.

  110. 2001: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Important Clash correction - it's Paul Simonon smashing his guitar on the London Calling cover, and not Joe Strummer. Thanks for those of you pointing that out. Still, a great banner.

  111. 1959: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Juventus will not have played many Champions League games at this tempo. It's harum scarum stuff, with Alessandro Matri causing all manner of issues up top for Juventus.

  112. 1959: 
    Middlesbrough 0-0 Leeds (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "Lively opening on a chilly night at the Riverside, which despite a few empty seats is noisy enough. Curtis Main flashed a shot onto the roof of the net for Boro, while Leeds' Ross McCormack was not far off with a 20 yarder which skidded wide, while Jason Steele also denied him with an acrobatic stop."

  113. 1958: 

    @im_nits: "Celtic are in for a rude awakening and a lesson in Football here."

    @nicklo2k: "Proof that the official behind the goal does nothing: Ball was over the line before Juve scored the rebound, yet nothing given."

    @alexjeffs1992: "Final score 3-0 Juventus, Celtic to be undone by experienced players."

  114. 1957: 
    Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    More pressing from Celtic as Gigi Buffon is called into action with a low shot from range. Celtic have another corner and referee Alberto Mallenco is a busy man to deal with plenty of shoving.

  115. 1955: 
    GOAL- Valencia 0-1 Paris St-Germain - Ezequiel Lavezzi (10 mins)

    Smash! My word he gets hold of this. PSG work a neat one-two on the edge of the area, Ezequiel Lavezzi wriggles into the box and hammers a shot right through goalkeeper Vicente Guaita and in to the roof of the net. Replays suggest that he should have got hands to that but the pace took it in. Advantage PSG.

  116. 1955:  
    BBC Radio 5 live's Pat Nevin at Celtic ParkCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "There's only one answer for Celtic they have to go and attack Juventus and look for that goal, that's the only way they can get back in to the game. At least they have plenty of time to do it. Celtic are trying to push the line up too high and they don't have the pace to do that. It's not sophisticated from Juventus. It's just knocking it long and they've got behind the Celtic back line three times now."

  117. 1954: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Valencia 0-0 Paris St-Germain

    Ooh so close for PSG! Lucas Moura thrashes in an angled drive from 25 yards against the post.

  118. 1954:  
    BBC Radio 5 live sports extraLeicester 1-1 Huddersfield

    Former West Brom goalkeeper Dean Kiely on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra at the King Power Stadium: "Leicester have got the upper hand at the moment and it has not been too sophisticated or complicated. They have just been doing the simple things well and have ground down Huddersfield."

  119. 1953: 
    Valencia 0-0 Paris St-Germain

    The home side have bossed the opening stages in Spain but there have been no real chances of note yet.

  120. 1952: 
    CLOSE!- Celtic 0-1 Juventus

    Celtic rally after that shocking start and Victor Wanyama is again first to the loose ball, lashing in a shot on the bounce which thumps into the chest of Gianluigi Buffon. Plenty of fire and fight from Celtic.

  121. 1952:  
    Pat Nevin, BBC Radio 5 liveCeltic 0-1 Juventus

    "It's a pretty straightforward header, it's bad timing for Ambrose he simply wasn't strong enough."

  122. 1949: 
    GOAL- Celtic 0-1 Juventus - Alessandro Matri (3 mins)

    A nightmare start for Celtic! A routine ball forward is missed by Efe Ambrose, Alessandro Matri is in and pokes the ball through the legs of Fraser Forster. Kelvin Wilson desperately clears the ball on the line, but Claudio Marchisio follows in to slam the loose ball into the roof of the net. It was already in anyway. Dear oh dear...

  123. 1948: 
    Celtic 0-0 Juventus

    Victor Wanyama has a dig from 30 yards, the ball is flying wide of the post but Gianluigi Buffon rather nervously shovels it behind for a corner. Celtic have been very dangerous at set-pieces but Juve deal with the first delivery of the night in style.

    There is plenty of pushing and pulling in the penalty area. Plenty.

  124. 1947: 
    KICK-OFF- Celtic 0-0 Juventus

    And we are away in Glasgow. Juve greeted by huge jeers as they start with the ball.

  125. 1946: 
    KICK-OFF- Valencia 0-0 Paris St-Germain

    Game on in Spain.

  126. 1945: 

    I've just seen that Stirling are at home to East Stirling tonight - and East Stirling have got a striker called Stirling. Brilliant effort. Up there with our 'Hartley & Poole' scoring for Hartlepool the other night.

  127. 1943: 

    @DWilkinson_11: "Celtic shirt on, Juve shorts on. Caught in two minds but I think the Juve midfield may be too strong for the hoops."

    @paddy_boyland: "Backing Celtic to get some sort of result tonight. Wanyama will need to be at his best to shackle Pirlo though."

    @geordietelf: "I was torn on who to support for this match... but Snoop makes the difference."

  128. 1941: 
    Celtic v Juventus (1945 GMT)

    Fraser Forster, a mountain of a man, dominates the tunnel as Celtic line up ready for this one. They look focused, they look ready.

  129. 1940: 
    Celtic v Juventus (1945 GMT)

    A deafening rendition of "You'll Never Walk Alone" at Celtic Park as the Celtic fans unfurl a huge 'London Calling' banner, a la Clash. Joe Strummer smashing the Juve badge with his guitar.

    The final of the Champions League is in London this year of course, at Wembley...

  130. 1939: 
    GOAL- Leicester 1-1 Huddersfield - Michael Keane (7 mins)

    There has been plenty of talk about those dangerous urban foxes recently and it looks like Huddersfield were not heeding the warnings. Leicester go straight back up the opposite end and strike back as Ritchie de Laet's header is only partially blocked and Michael Keane stabs the loose ball home from eight yards.

  131. 1935: 
    GOAL- Leicester 0-1 Huddersfield - Adam Clayton (5 mins)

    A crackerjack from Adam Clayton as Huddersfield take a very early lead. The midfielder moves the ball in mysterious ways, curling a beauty of a free-kick over the wall and in to the top corner.

  132. 1933: 

    Matt in Telford on text: "Maybe Lampard will write a book aimed at Chelsea fans desperate for him to sign a new contract. Frankie says Relax. Think of the merchandising opportunities- t shirts etc."

  133. 1932: 
    Leicester v Huddersfield (1930 GMT)

    Chris Wood, the Leicester goalscorer from the 1-1 draw at the Galpharm, is missing for Leicester with a knee injury. There are four changes for the Foxes that lost to Peterborough at the weekend with Matty James, Paul Gallagher, Richie Wellens and Marko Futacs coming in.

    With speculation swirling that Coventry boss Mark Robins is close to agreeing a deal to take the Terriers reins, caretaker Huddersfield boss Mark Lillis makes six changes. Ian Bennett makes his 550th career start with Alex Smithies unavailable due to a family bereavement. Elsewhere Paul Dixon, Chris Atkinson, Murray Wallace, Alan Lee, Jordan Sinnott come into the side, while striker Jermaine Beckford is out with a hamstring strain.

  134. 1932: 
    KICK-OFF- Leicester 0-0 Huddersfield

    Game on at the King Power.

    Celtic supporters

    The ground is already pretty much full. No sign of Snoop Dogg as yet, but there is no chance of any spare tickets doing the rounds. Zero.

  136. 1930:  
    BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic ParkCeltic v Juventus (1945 GMT)

    "Well, this is as momentous an occasion as Celtic Park has seen in quite some time. It's a different atmosphere to the build-up to the Barcelona match here a few months back.

    "Now there is a heightened sense of expectation, because of the fine results Celtic have achieved in Europe this season. The noise inside Celtic Park on Champions League matchdays has been second-to-none. I'd wager and I expect the roof to once again be lifted off the stadium as kick-off beckons."

  137. 1929: 
    Middlesbrough v Leeds (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Matt Newsum at the Riverside: "Speak to fans of a certain vintage and they will tell you Middlesbrough-Leeds is a Yorkshire derby - from the days when the former was part of North Riding.

    "The boundaries might have changed in 2013, but the intensity has not, and with both clubs pushing for promotion from the Championship this season, tonight promises to be fiercely contested."

  138. 1928: 
    Leicester v Huddersfield (1930 GMT)

    The players are coming out on to the pitch in Leicester at the first of our evening's games. Who will earn a home tie with Wigan? It will be a very quick turnaround in the programme-writing department if Leicester take the win...

  139. 1922: 

    So Frank Lampard is knocking out five books by the end of 2014? That is some going. Wonder if there will be a 'Frankie at the World Cup' special to come?

  140. 1920: 

    @meganxpoison: "Celtic will shut the game down and hit on the break. Hoping for a clean sheet and a lucky goal (or 2, or 3...)"

    @kdowlatshahi: "Supporting Juve today because Pirlo is pure class... now, if Anelka is introduced, I'll be backing Celtic and listening to Snoop"

    @MUFC_rsd17: "The win against Barcelona was one of their biggest & the way they played was impressive so they'll give it all against Juve."

  141. 1920: 

    Some Frank Lampard signing news for you - as Frank Lampard announces he is to write a series of children's books.

    The midfielder, whose contract at Chelsea expires at the end of the season, will pen five books, called Frankie's Magic Football, for children aged five and above.

    The stories will follow the adventures of a school boy, Frankie, his football-loving friends, and pet dog Max.

    Lampard said the stories were "loosely based on friends and team mates".

    The 34-year-old will publish his first book, Frankie Versus The Pirate Pillagers, in June, followed by two more this year and another two in 2014.

    "I first had the idea of Frankie and his Magic Football when reading stories to my own children," he said in a statement.

    "Sport and reading are two essentials for us at home, so I decided to make up my own football stories and adventures."

  142. 1917: 
    Valencia v Paris St-Germain (1945 GMT)

    Alistair Magowan reports: "David Beckham might be nowhere near the Paris St-Germain side yet, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be aiming to steer the nouveau riche French side through to the quarter-finals and will be supported by Brazilian Lucas, who is making his European debut after signing in January. Former Chelsea defender Alex also starts.

    "Valencia welcome back key striker Roberto Soldado after suspension. The skipper has scored 16 goals in 21 Champions League appearances."

  143. 1915: 

    Julian in Framlingham on text: "Huge, huge game for not only Celtic but also Juventus. To prove their once again up they are among Europe's top sides, I can't see it quite yet."

    Chris on text: "If Celtic get Snoop as a mascot tonight they need no worry about the tie, there's no way Juventus will beat that!"

    "Through my career they're the nights I remember, 60,000 fans at Celtic Park behind the team buoying you on. Celtic's record in Europe when I was there and currently is particularly strong at home.

    "They have punched well above their weight in Europe this season, they got out of a difficult group and this is a night where these Celtic players can put themselves in Celtic folklore. Celtic's record at home speaks for itself, I think it will be a cagey game but they will be a real test for Juventus."

  148. 1905: 
    Valencia v Paris St-Germain (1945 GMT)

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan reports: "Valencia and Paris St-Germain have never met in a competitive game before, but they are both in fine form in their respective leagues. The Spanish are now under the tutelage of boss Ernesto Valverde, who took over in December with his side winning six of nine league matches since to sit fifth in La Liga.

    "PSG are six points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring 21 goals in 21 games. The French side are without key players Thiago Motta and Thiago Silva, though."

  149. 1905: 

    @Ten_Hi: "Will Celtic's lack of competition in the league help or hinder them in CL? Easily won with their 2nd team last weekend."

    @Turner013: "As a lifelong Juventus fan finally getting to see the media and credit we deserve, I'm as proud as any Celtic fan tonight!"

    @closetindie: "As a Barca supporter, the lesser of two evils principle applies for the Real Madrid v Man United game. I choose United."

  150. 1903: 

    Has anyone hooked Snoop up with some tickets? Imagine him walking out as a mascot. Brilliant.

  151. 1903: 

    In League Two, Gillingham will move back to the top of the table if they collect all three points from their trip to York. Cheltenham will go third if they beat Southend, while a win for Aldershot will be a nice reward for their long journey to Morecambe and see them move out of the bottom two.

    Snoop Dogg

    As we saw with Rod Stewarts's impromptu tears back in November, Celtic are not shy of celebrity fans. Keep your eyes peeled in the posh seats tonight and you may see Billy Connolly, Kevin Bridges, maybe even Sam Torrance.

    But will we be seeing Snoop Dogg? Unlikely as it seems, the rapper is allegedly a big Hoops fan, and even donned a Celtic scarf at a media event in Dubai last week.

    He told reporters: "I need tickets for the game but I want to walk out with the team like a little kid with a banner. Yes, yes make it happen.

    "Hail, hail the Celts are here. Yabadabadoo!"

  154. 1859: 
    Leicester v Huddersfield (1930 GMT)

    Leicester teetered on the edge of FA Cup elimination for eight minutes at the Galpharm Stadium in January, before Chris Wood's 82nd-minute leveller dragged Huddersfield back to the King Power Stadium. By the end of tonight one of the two teams will have booked themselves in for a home match against Premier League Wigan.

    The form book is not giving to many clues as to who it might be. The Foxes have chalked up a win over Wolves and a defeat to Peterborough since their first meeting, while Huddersfield continue to float just above the Championship relegation zone.

  155. 1858: 

    Bournemouth will go to the top of League One if they beat Crewe at Gresty Road tonight. The Cherries have won their last four games and will be looking to take advantage with the top three of Tranmere, Doncaster and Swindon not playing tonight.

    At the other end of the table, the bottom two of Hartlepool and Portsmouth play each other at Victoria Park, with Pompey keen to avoid what would be a record 10th consecutive defeat that would see them end the night propping up the rest of the division.

  156. 1857: 

    Nick on text via 81111: "As a Man Utd fan, very excited to see Wanyama in the Celtic midfield tonight. Could be just what we need."

  157. 1857: 

    There are plenty of familiar faces in the Juventus squad. As well as the marvellously-bearded midfielder Andrea Pirlo, who gave England the run-around in the summer, Juve also have a smattering of ex-Premier League players.

    Paul Pogba has been ripping up trees in Serie A since leaving Manchester United last summer, ex-Chelsea, Bolton and Arsenal man Nicolas Anelka has just arrived from China, while Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner is also there on loan.

    Bendtner hasn't had quite such a good season. He's, er, he's not actually scored yet. Give him time...

    Celtic and Juventus have won 71 league titles between them, but Juve coach Antonio Conte believes both sides have done well just to reach the last 16.

    He said: "This is a dream for us to be in the knockout stages.

    "Like Celtic we are back in the competition for the first time in a while so in some respects we are both outsiders here."

  159. 1850: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Celtic v Juventus (1945 GMT)

    Juventus make two changes from the side which beat Fiorentina at the weekend, as Martin Caceres and Leonardo Bonucci come in.

  160. 1847: 

    There are three games in the Championship tonight, and a win or a draw for Hull against Derby at the KC Stadium will see the Tigers move into second place. A win for Leeds at Middlesbrough would push Neil Warnock's men nearer to the play-off places, while Blackburn make the long journey to the south coast to take on Brighton.

    Three points for the home side would see them leapfrog 'Boro into the play-off places if Tony Mowbray's side slip up.

  161. 1846: 

    Opta Sports on Twitter: "4 - PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has only scored four goals in 27 games in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Curiosity."

  162. 1843: 
    Chris Sutton

    Celtic have only ever lost twice at home in the Champions League - if we forget about pesky qualifying rounds - with Barcelona winning on both occasions.

    Juve last came to town in 2001 and went home on the end of a 4-3 defeat, with Chris Sutton doing the damage with a cracking brace.

    But Juve showed in drawing with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and then beating them comfortably in Turin that they are a real class act at the moment. All in all we are set for a cracker.

  163. 1841: 

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon on Twitter: "Players in good fettle, all looking forward to the game. Think I can hear thunder in the distance...

    "I hope you will all be feeling as proud and emotional as I will at 1945. Tonight just means that little bit more"

  164. 1839:

    Celtic v Juventus (1945 GMT)

    Efe Ambrose starts for Celtic, despite playing for Nigeria in Sunday's 1-0 African Cup of Nations final win over Burkina Faso. The big defender only arrived back in Scotland this morning.

    Left-back Emilio Izaguirre has recovered from a knee injury, while winger James Forrest is fit again following a hamstring problem. Both are on from the start.

    Georgios Samaras has been something of a talisman for Celtic in Europe this season but the big Greek forward has not recovered from a hamstring injury.

  166. 1838: 

    Plenty to get your teeth into tonight then.

    Are Celtic going to see off Juventus? Will the moneybags of Paris steal a march on Valencia? Will Leicester or Huddersfield earn an FA Cup visit from Wigan on Sunday?

    And, of course, there is the small matter of Real Madrid v Manchester United on the horizon. No way Jose?

    Celtic make nine changes from the side which beat Inverness 3-1 at the weekend as all the big boys return. There is no place for Georgios Samaras though as Gary Hooper leads the line.

  168. 1836: 

    Celtic Park will be our main focus this evening - but there is plenty of other football to enjoy as well.

    In the other game in the Champions League, a David Beckham-less Paris St-Germain travel to Valencia, while there is FA Cup fourth round replay action in the guise of Leicester v Huddersfield.

    It's a busy night as well in the Football League, with Brighton hosting Blackburn in arguably the pick of the Championship games, and 13 games in Leagues One and Two.

    If that wasn't enough for you, you can follow a separate, bespoke live text commentary purely on the Celtic game from our friends at BBC Scotland.

  169. 1832: 

    Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt stamped their own entries into the Celtic history books with goals against Barca in that famous win, and there could be new additions by 2200 this evening if the Bhoys can pull off another huge result.

    Juventus may well be storming away at the top of Serie A, but Celtic are formidable opponents on their own turf.
