    Time:90'
    • Bursaspor
    • Valencia CF
    • 93' Full time at the Ataturk Stadium and Valencia ensure Bursaspor get off to a miserable start in the Champions League.
    • 90' Three minutes of injury time to be played.
    • 80' Manuel Fernandes takes the place of man of the match, for me, Tino Costa.
    • 78' Ergic comes off for Svensson for Bursaspor while Mata takes the place of Donimguez.
    • 75' 4-0 Valencia. Roberto Solado is put through by Hernandez and he slots the ball past Ivankov.
    • 73' Solado and Joaquin exhange a cheeky one-two thanks to a lovely deft backheel from the substitute and Joaquin slams a shot wide.
    • 70' Aduriz comes off in place of Roberto Solado.
    • 68' 3-0! And that IS a sloppy goal. Hernandez tries to dink it over the top of the Bursa defence, but it's cleared. The headed clearance from Ergic falls straight back down to him and despite miscontrolling it, he stabs a tame effort into the bottom left hand corner. More shocking defending.
    • 67' Bursaspor have had six shots on goal to Valencia's 13.
    • 64' The substitutes nearly pull one back for Bursaspor. Yildirim races down the left, skins Navarro, and squares a ball across the face of goal ready for Bahadir to tap it in, but for a saving tackle by Tino Costa. He's having quite a game.
    • 59' And Bahadir nearly makes an instant impact. He has his arm tugged by Costa but the referee has none of it and waves awya the penalty appeals.
    • 56' Sercan Yildirim and Turgay Bahadir are set to come on...in place of Nunez and Cimsir.
    • 56' Bursaspor looking a lot more settled in the second half. They're passing the ball around nicely and keeping possession.
    • 49' Leonel Nunez has another awful shot. He hits a shot so far over the bar, it's got to have gone out of the stadium.
    • 45' The second half has begun in Bursa, the Turkish side will be looking to pull a goal back as quickly as possible.
    • - That was a terrible first half for Bursaspor. It's got to be the nerves getting to them. Both Valencia goals have come from sloppy defending though the home side aren't creating much either. Two efforts on goal in the first 45'.
    • - It's been a lively start to the Champions League tonight - Barcelona are 3-1 up against Panathinaikos, Twente are drawing 2-2 with Inter Milan and Tottenham are beating Werder Bremen 2-1 in Germany.
    • 45' Half time in Bursa and Valencia will be pretty happy in the dressing room. They've bossed this game from kick off and had 62% of the possession. Dominant.
    • 46' Valencia hit the bar! A jinking run ending in a lovely dinked effort by Pablo Hernandez comes back off the woodwork.
    • 44' Joaquin takes a shot at goal but it's deflected behind off Ergic for a corner.
    • 43' Unai Emery is banned for this game, but he's over the moon in the stands.Saglam meanwhile, is not a happy chappy.
    • 41' A free kick from Costa hits the post and it falls ever so kindly for Aduriz to head in the rebound past a helpless Ivankov. Great reactions from the Valencia striker.
    • 41' And Valencia go 2-0 up!
    • 38' A series of successive corners for Valencia piles ther pressure on and now they've got a free kick from 28 yards out.
    • 36' Great work from Hernandez on the right but he's tackled by Erdogan. Corner to Valencia.
    • 35' Nunez takes an absolute shocker of a shot there...what a waste.
    • 30' Half an hour gone in the Ataturk Stadium and Bursaspor's first CL campaign is not going to plan. An absolute screamer of a shot by Costa has put Valencia 1-0 up. They'll do well to hold on to that lead in this atmosphere. The Bursa fans are loud. Very loud.
    • - That really was a cracking strike by Costa, but he was given far too much room, should have been closed down much quicker.
    • 16' Tino Costa hits a shot from nigh on 30 yards that sails into Ivankov's top right hand corner. He had no chance with that. Absolute screamer.
    • 15' And Valencia take the lead, and WHAT A GOAL!
    • 13' Another corner to Valencia but Ivankov catches it confidently.
    • - Elsewhere in group C, Rangers travel to Manchester United - it's currently 0-0 in that game as well.
    • 7' Valencia have had the lion's share of possession so far - 58% - as they look to take advantage of their Champions League experience.
    • 7' Interestingly, both sides are lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Possibility for the two lone strikers, Nunez and Aduriz to get stranded if they don't get support from their midfielders though.
    • 5' Bursaspor and then Valencia waste corner kicks.
    • 1' And we're off!
    • - It's 21C in the Ataturk Stadium in Bursa. Perfect football conditions.
    • - Interestingly, Bursaspor beat Wimbledon 4-0 at Selhurst Park in the Intertoto Cup in 1995.
    • - Apologies for those out of date Bursaspor results below, for those of you who are interested, they've beaten Konyaspor 1-0 (h), Galatasaray and Sivasspor both 2-0 and both away from home, and, let me spell this correctly, Eskisehirspor, 2-1 at home.
    • - Valencia meanwhile have played two and won two in La Liga, winning 3-1 away to Malaga and 1-0 at home Racing Club.
    • - Bursaspor currently sit top of the Super Lig after four wins from four. The reigning Turkish champions have only conceded one goal thus far as they start their European campaign.
    • - Nikola Zigic left for Birmingham City and Carlos Marchena, Asier del Horno and Hugo Viana all moved on.
    • - Valencia were extremely busy in the transfer market this summer. The two David's, Villa and Silva left for Barcelona and Manchester City respectively while stalwart Ruben Baraja retired.
    • - Wow. Cracking Bursaspor fact for you. A group of local businessmen clubbed together to buy them a customised team bus ahead of their Champions League campaign. Impressive.
    • - Valencia meanwhile, are back in the Champions League for the first time since they were eliminated from the Group Stages in the 2007/08 competition where they faced Chelsea, Schalke and Rosenborg.
    • - Sa─člam's charges are the first team from outside Istanbul to have claimed the Turkish title since 1984, and a brief run in the 1995 Intertoto Cup, have not won a European game in 36 years.
    • - This is a big night for Bursaspor, as Ertugrul Saglam leads the Turkish champions out for their first ever Champions League game. Momentous.
    • - Valencia: Cesar Sanchez; Saltor, Navarro, Ricardo Costa, Mathieu; Costa, Topal; Joaquin, Dominguez, Hernandez, Aduriz. SUBS: Moya, Maduro, Albelda, Solado, Mata, Fernandes, Miguel.
    • - Bursaspor team: Ivankov; Tandogan, Erdogan, Stepanov, Vederson; Ergic, Cimsir; Sen, Insua, Ipek; Nunez. SUBS: Ozkan, Yildirim, Svensson, Batalla, Bahadir, Keceli, Ozturk.
