    A silly foul by Mohamed Kanno as he looks to steal the ball and just bundles down the Esperance player and he picks up his second yellow card in a matter of minutes.

    Can Esperance make their man advantage count in the last five minutes to get back into this game?


    Al Hilal 1-0 Esperance

    Mohamed Kanno picks up Al Hilal's second yellow card of the game.

    They are seeing this out pretty well at the moment.

    Al Hilal 1-0 Esperance

    Al Hilal 1-0 Esperance

    Omar Otayf, a defensive midfielder, replaces Omar Khrbin for Al Hilal.

  16. CLOSE!

    Al Hilal 1-0 Esperance

    That should be game, set, match!

    Esperance, understandably considering they are now chasing this game, are a bit more open at the back and Al Hilal are left three on three.

    A cross from the left picks out Omar Khrbin in the middle but he slices his effort wide from about 10-yards out. He really should have done better from there.

  17. GOAL - Al Hilal 1-0 Esperance

    Bafetimbi Gomis

    The substitute scores!

    This is absolutely magnificent from Bafetimbi Gomis.

    He receives the ball with his back to goal on the shoulder of the last defender. He turns, chips it over the sliding Mohamed Ali Yacoubi and then volleys it into the bottom corner.

    Make that 40 goals in 51 appearances.

  18. Post update

    Al Hilal 0-0 Esperance

    Al Hilal's Salem Al-Dawsari does brilliantly to beat a couple of men but Esperance get across to snuff out the danger.
