  1. Goodbye!

    We're going to leave it there for tonight.

    Don't forget to join us again on Saturday for the second round where we'll have coverage of Al-Hilal v Es Tunis and Monterrey v Al-Sadd. You'll be able to watch both games while following live text.

    If you want more football tonight, you can follow Bayern Munich v Tottenham in the Champions League over here.

    Thanks for your company.

  2. Post update

    Al-Sadd manager Xavi: "We had many chances to score. We concede just a little bit, they didn't look like scoring in the second half apart from early on. We suffered too much, we did more than them but we missed too many chances.

    "Monterrey will be very difficult on Saturday."

  3. Watch the goals

    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Here are all four goals from the game.

    Well worth watching the scenes from when Hienghene equalised early in the second half.

    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    All over.

    Part-time Hienghene battled but in the end the full-time status and quality shone through for Al-Sadd.

    They are through to the second round where they'll face Mexico's Monterrey on Saturday (17:30 GMT).


    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    One minute of added time.

  6. Post update

    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Boualem Khoukhi is hobbling off for Al-Sadd so the Qatari champions may well finish the game with 10 men.


    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Final change for Al-Sadd as Tarek Salman replaces Salem Al Hajri.


    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Al-Sadd make another switch as Hashim Ali replaces Akram Afif.

    Afif will be wondering how he's not scored tonight. He's had numerous chances.


    Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Emile Bearune is booked for a late tackle on Akram Afif.

    Al-Sadd have a free-kick in a dangerous position.

  10. GOAL - Al-Sadd 3-1 Hienghene

    Pedro Miguel

    Game, set, match.

    With Hienghene pressing forward looking for an equaliser, Al-Sadd work another opportunity and it ends with right-back Pedro Miguel smashing emphatically into the roof of the net.

    You've got to feel for Hienghene, they've been brilliant but Al-Sadd's quality has shone through in the end.


    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Hienghene make their fourth substitution as Bruno Hyanem replaces fellow substitute Miguel Kayara.


    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    It's all Al-Sadd at the moment.

    Baghdad Bounedjah gets the ball and cuts inside Joseph Athale but he smashes his effort against the bar.

    Al-Sadd have missed some glorious opportunities tonight.

  13. CLOSE!

    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Off the line again by Joseph Athale.

    Al-Sadd work it nicely down the right-hand side and a cutback is swept goalwards by Ali Assadalla but Athale positions himself behind Rocky Nyikeine, on the line, to block the effort.

    That's the second time he's cleared off the line tonight.

  14. Watch: Abdelkarim Hassan fires Al-Sadd ahead in extra time

    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Here's the goal that gave Al-Sadd the lead in extra time.

    An absolute rifle from left-back Abdelkarim Hassan.

  15. KICK-OFF

    Al-Sadd make their second substitution as Nam Tae-hee is replaced by Ali Assadalla.

    We're back under way.


    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Xavi's side lead at the break.

    Can part-time Hienghene come back for a second time?


    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    There will be a minimum of one minute added on at the end of the first-half of extra time.

  18. Post update

    Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Big chance!

    Birthday boy Hassan Al Haydos is through on goal but slices his effort wide.

    It's been all Al-Sadd in extra-time. Part-time Hienghene, understandably, look leggy.

  19. GOAL - Al-Sadd 2-1 Hienghene

    Abdelkarim Hassan

    Al-Sadd shift it to the side and left-back Abdelkarim Hassan drills in through the Hienghene defenders - lined-up on the line - and into the net.

    Club World Cup


    There's a bit of confusion as Hienghene try to play offside but Al-Sadd don't go forward so the referee plays on.

    The defender controls it so the strikers start to press and then there's confusion between the defender and Rocky Nyikeine in the Hienghene goal and the keeper ends up picking up the ball, after being nutmugged.

    Indirect free-kick from 12-yards for Al-Sadd.
