    Time:90'
    • Girondins Bordeaux
    • Olympique Lyon
    • 90+3' There's the final whistle!! Lyon are into the semi-finals of the Champions League!!!
    • 90+2' Free-kick to Bordeaux on the left flank, it's swung in high by Gourcuff, Lloris gets a punch, and that's enough to clear the immediate danger.
    • 90+1' Lloris comes flying off his line to claim a high ball into the centre of the area and take the pressure off his defence.
    • 90' Into injury time here at the Chaban-Delmas, and it's getting desperate for Bordeaux. Three minutes' injury time to be played.
    • 87' BRILLIANT SAVE FROM LLORIS!!! It was a super, towering header from Wendel at the back post, and Lloris flung himself to his left to tip the ball over the bar! Will that be the save that books Lyon's place in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
    • 80' Corner to Bordeaux now. Wendel swings it in...AND SANE HEADS WIDE AT THE BACK POST!!! THEIR BEST CHANCE OF THE SECOND HALF BY FAR!!
    • 76' Time is ticking on Bordeaux's Champions League challenge. They have 15 minutes to find a goal, and are not creating the chances they need to. Lyon are doing a fine job of nullifying their threat.
    • 74' Chamakh goes to ground a little easily in the Lyon area under Cris's challenge, but the Spanish referee Alberto Undiano waves away the appeals. It was more of a penalty than the handball in the first leg, but the theatrical way Chamakh went down didn't help his cause.
    • 70' Alou Diarra is coming off for Bordeaux, and the look on his face seems to suggest he may be injured. He is replaced by Matthieu Chalme.
    • 67' Pjanic is on for Gomis for Lyon. The former Portsmouth man has had a quiet evening tonight. He hasn't really done enough to worry the Bordeaux defence, save for one well-timed run right at the start of the second half.
    • 65' Delgado looks to weave his way into the area, but he's crowded out by a sea of red and white shirts. Not quite the same level of excitement as in the fist half.
    • 61' Sane goes down under the challenge of Cissokho (who's treading a very thin line now) on the edge of the area, but no free-kick is forthcoming. Cue howls of disapproval from the home support.
    • 58' Lyon coach Claude Puel is getting frustrated and anxious on the touchline as Bordeaux settle into their stylish, passing game once again.
    • 53' Wendel with a similarly poor effort to Bastos just a couple of minutes ago. It was a nice passing move from Bordeaux, one of many this evening, but Wendel's speculative effort was well wide, and not particularly sweetly struck.
    • 50' Bastos lashes a low volley wide from 25 yards,
    • 47' Carrasso comes flying from his goal, Gomis goes past him but is forced wide, and that gives Ciani the chance to come across and intercept the shot! Bordeaux switched off there for the first time in the game!
    • 46' Bordeaux kick off the second half! They need one more goal, without conceding, to turn this tie around and book a place in the semi-finals.
    • 45+1' There's the half-time whistle. Bordeaux 1-0 Lyon.
    • 45' BORDEAUX HAVE THE LEAD!!! IT'S MAROUANE CHAMAKH!!! Tremoulinas fed Jussie, he played a gorgeous ball back to the onrushing Tremoulinas, his cross took a deflection before falling for Chamakh, who found the back of the net!!!
    • 43' DIARRA SENDS AN ABSOLUTE SCREAMER ONTO THE CROSSBAR FROM ALL OF 35 YARDS!!! WHAT A HIT! Lloris was beaten there.
    • 39' Cissokho with a foul on Wendel on the right. Another chance for the Brazilian to put pressure on Lyon from a set piece. He swings it in, Cris with a thumping header clear.
    • 37' Important covering header from Tremoulinas to deny Gomis a headed chance from point blank range! Bastos's ensuing corner is a terrible one, straight out of play.
    • 35' Stupid play from Cissokho after a foul is given against him on the left flank, and then he pushes Jussie over as he gets up...he's lucky to get away with a yellow card there!!
    • 33' Jussie feeds Plasil in space, he turns towards goal, before lifting his shot well over the bar.
    • 32' Foul given against Bastos for a high boot with Chamakh in close proximity. Another chance for Wendel to fire in a dangerous ball from the left flank...which he does...Boumsong can't clear, it falls for Chamakh, his shot is blocked, and eventually Lyon punt the ball away from danger.
    • 29' Reveillere does well to win a corner of Ciani on the right. Bastos swings it in, Carrasso gets half a punch on it, but not enough to clear convincingly, and Sane hacks to safety.
    • 27' Another fine ball in from Tremoulinas from the left, and Boumsong is there ahead of Jussie to make the clearance. Jussie in fact fouls Boumsong and Lyon have a free-kick that will ease the pressure.
    • 24' Cross swung in from the left from Tremoulineas, Chamakh gets in ahead of Boumsong, it deflects into Chamakh's path, he strikes a volley goalwards at the near post...but it flashes wide.
    • 21' Bordeaux are beginning to get their passing game together now, after a slow start. They're enjoying a decent spell of pressure at the moment.
    • 18' Free-kick on the right flank for Bordeaux. Their first chance to put a decent ball into the Lyon box. Wendel with the delivery...Gourcuff with a brilliantly times run in behind the defence...AND HE GLANCES THE BALL OVER THE BAR!!! WHAT A CHANCE!!!! It just needed the feintest of touches to take it past Lloris, who was on his way to collect the ball, but never had a chance of getting there. Gourcuff kicks the post in frustration, and well he might.
    • 16' Gomis ruled offside twice in quick succession. He's got to watch that line a little better.
    • 15' Finally Bordeaux manage to get out of their own half as Jussie brings it forward, he sends a long ball looking for Chamakh, but the latter doesn't see it coming and Lyon are back in possession.
    • 13' A Lyon corner bounces awkwardly in the box, and Gomis heads over from close range!!! A difficult chance, as the ball was rising fast as it came to him.
    • 11' Perhaps a sign of nerves from Tremoulinas as he lets a simple pass roll under his foot and out for a throw. Lyon have looked the more confident here early on, and have made the better start. If Bordeaux were aiming to go at their opponents from the off then it certainly hasn't happened.
    • 10 Free-kick to Lyon 40 yards from goal in a central position. Bastos is over it. He steps up...and strikes a thunderous shot just wide of the right hand post!!! The way Carrasso swung round as that flew wide suggested he wasn't totally convinced.
    • 6' Toulalan wins Lyon thyeir second corner of the game, but now Jussie can bring it clear at pace for Bordeaux. A high pace start here!
    • 3' Cris deals comfortably with two early Bordeaux attacks down the centre. Chamakh is trying to pull the centre abcks about to create some space.
    • 1' Lyon get the first half underway!
    • 19:40 Lyon 'keeper Hugo Lloris: "We have a slight advantage. Everything can happen very quickly. Bordeaux are playing in front of their fans and will try to make a fast start. The first quarter of an hour will be very important for us. It's important for us not to sit on our lead and protect what we have. We have to go at them."
    • 19:35 "We have some glaring weaknesses at the moment and our opponents are taking advantage," were the latest words of Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc. "It's up to us to rectify the situation and not let things drop. It's at moments like this that you see the worth of the men and the worth of the group. To be honest, I can't wait for the match on Wednesday. It will allow us to throw ourselves back into a match, and what a match."
    • 19:30 Well, in terms of form, Lyon are looking very strong. They've lost just one of their last 12 in Ligue 1, and that was a tough test away at Marseille where they went down 2-1. Bordeaux have not been at their best as of late, and have won just 2 of their last 8 league matches, and suffered a morale-deflating 2-1 defeat at home to Nancy which may cost them the Ligue 1 title come the end of the season.
    • 19:15 Lyon team: Hugo Lloris, Anthony Reveillere, Cris, Jean-Alain Boumsong, Aly Cissokho, Jeremy Toulalan, Maxime Gonalons, Kim Kallstrom, Michel Bastos, Cesar Delgado, Bafetimbi Gomis. Substitutes: Vercoutre, Bodmer, Pjanic, Ederson, Tafer, Gassama, Belfodil.
    • 19:15 Bordeaux team: Cedric Carrasso, Ludovic Sane, Michael Ciani, Marc Planus, Benoit Tremoulinas, Jaroslav Plasil, Alou Diarra, Jussie, Yoann Gourcuff, Wendel, Marouane Chamakh. Substitutes: Rame, Henrique, Gouffran, Cavenaghi, Bellion, Chalme, Traore.
    • 19:10 Bordeaux have a 3-1 deficit to overturn from the first leg - though that away goal could yet prove crucial. A 2-0 scoreline is their target. What are the odds that harsh penalty given to Lyon for handball in the Bordeaux area will yet prove crucial?
