    • FC Copenhagen
    • Panathinaikos
    • 90+5 FULL TIME! Copenhagen win 3-1, and progress from the group stage. A fantastic victory and well deserved.
    • 90+4 Copenhagen are keeping possession and winding down the clock. It's just a matter of time until the referee blows the final whistle.
    • 91' GOAL! It's a mere consolation for Panathinaikos, as Kante gets his head to a free-kick from Leto. The Copenhagen fans don't care though, they know they're through to the next phase. 3-1.
    • 90' We have five minutes of additional time.
    • 89' Substitution: Kenneth Zohore comes on to replace Gronkjaer.
    • 89' Vyntra is penalised for hand ball. Free-kick to Copenhagen in their own half.
    • 86' Claudemir goes down with a foot injury after a challenge from Leto. He is furious with the Argentine.
    • 83' Rubin Kazan have gone 2-0 down in Barcelona. FC Copenhagen appear to be through to the next stage.
    • 82' The Copenhagen goalkeeper is okay and plays on.
    • 82' Wiland is struggling with an injury. The physio comes on to help him.
    • 80' Chance for Panathinaikos! The home defence fail to clear a ball, but the away side fail to hit the target. Corner.
    • 78' N'Doye goes off to a standing ovation and is replaced by Cesar Santin.
    • 76' Ninis is brought down after going past two Copenhagen players. Cisse is complaining to referee.
    • 73' It appears the ball got a slight touch off Djibril Cisse as the ball flew into the far corner of the goal. It will probably go down as an own goal.
    • 72' GOAL! From the corner, Mikael Antonsson heads the ball into the far corner of the goal, completely unmarked. It's 3-0 and that should secure their passage through from the group stage. Thoroughly deserved.
    • 71' Corner to FC Copenhagen.
    • 68' Bolanos tries his luck from the edge of the area, but skies his shot high and wide. Copenhagen can't afford to take their foot off the gas now.
    • 66' Leto is booked for a silly foul on Pospech. The Argentine needs to keep his cool as he's looking good on the ball.
    • 64' Great chance for Marinos, who attempts an overhead kick from twelve yards out, but is flagged for offside.
    • 61' The away side are looking a bit more comfortable on the ball, with more possession than the home team. But they need to make it count if they are to get back into this game.
    • 58' Leto has made a difference to the away side since coming on at half-time. Can he bring his side back into this game?
    • 56' N'Doye capitalises on comedy defending from Cendric Kante, who fails to deal with a long ball, rounds goalkeeper Tzorvas, but his shot comes back off the post. Unlucky.
    • 55' Pospech tries his luck with a stunning shot from 25 yards out on the right, but Tzorvas gets the slightest of fingertips to the ball. However, no corner is given.
    • 54' Rubin Kazan have gone a goal down to Barcelona. It's looking pretty good for FC Copenhagen.
    • 52' Sebastian Leto wriggles his way past a couple of Copenhagen players, and looks to find Cisse, but the former Liverpool and Sunderland striker is flagged offside. Leto is not happy with the decision.
    • 51' Gronkjaer is booked for a foul on Spyropolous. A bit harsh on the goalscorer.
    • 49' GOAL! Gronkjaer fires past Tzorvas, who gets a touch to the ball, but it's enough to give FC Copenhagen a 2-0 lead.
    • 48' PENALTY to Copenhagen! Gronkjaer is fouled by Spyropoulous as he darts into the box, leaving the referee no choice. It looks like the former Chelsea player will take the penalty himself.
    • 46' The second half kicks off.
    • - Double substitution for Panathinaikos. On comes Sotiris Ninis for Gilberto Silva and Sebastian Leto is on for Lazoros Christodoulopoulos.
    • - As things stand, the Danish club are progressing through the next stage. Copenhagen manager Stale Solbakken will be a happy man, but he'll know his side cannot afford to take their foot off the gas in the second half.
    • 45+1 Half-time at the Parken Stadion. It's 1-0 to FC Copenhagen, who have ripped Panathinaikos apart at times. A fully deserved lead so far.
    • 45'+1 Luis Garcia is booked for a late challenge on Vingaard.
    • 45' Great chance for Panathinaikos! Marinos aims for goal on the edge of the box after goalkeeper Wiland spills a high ball, but makes up for it with a save.
    • 44' Stergos Marinos is booked for a foul on Wendt down the left touchline.
    • 42' Cisse looks to break away down the left, but gives away a free-kick after an arm to the face of Jorgensen as they challenge for the ball.
    • 40' Free kick to the away side, 35 yards out, after a foul on Simao.
    • 38' Djibril Cisse is lucky to be on the pitch. A dreadful two-footed lunge on Claudemir results in a free-kick for the home side and just a ticking off from the referee.
    • 34' Junior Simao plays a teasing ball into the Copenhagen box but Jorgensen clears.
    • 32' Gronkjaer heads inches wide of the far post with a glancing header from the resulting corner. Copenhagen are tearing the opposition apart.
    • 31' Claudemir with a dipping shot from 30 yards out, but Tzorvas is there to make a stunning save. Corner to Copenhagen.
    • 29' Pospech and Bolanos are combining well down the right-hand side for Copenhagen and causing all sorts of problems for Panathinaikos.
    • 28' The home fans behind the Panathinaikos are bobbing up and down. Whether it's to keep warm or for ground atmosphere, they are clearly enjoying this from their side.
    • 26' VINGAARD with a fantastic strike from 25 yards and finds the bottom left corner! The home side have deserved it after dominating the first period.
    • 21' Zdenek Pospech delivers a cross from the right, but goalkeeper Alexandros Tzorvas collects.
    • 19' Bolanos sends a half-volley wide from the edge of the 18-yard box after Wendt's free kick is half-cleared. A well-struck shot, but wide.
    • 17' Dangerous free-kick for the home side. Wendt to take.
    • 16' Dame N'Doye holds the ball up and causes problems for Jean-Alain Boumsong as Copenhagen attack down the right.
    • 14' Foul on Lukas Vyntra. Free-kick on the right for the Greek side.
    • 13' Oscar Wendt whips in a dangerous ball from the left, but the away side clears.
    • 11' The home side are passing the ball around inside the Panathinakos half and looking comfortable.
    • 9' Junior Simao is booked for Panathinaikos.
    • 4' Christian Bolanos win a free-kick in his own half for Copenhagen.
    • 3' Jesper Gronkjaer is flagged for offside.
    • 2' Martin Vingaard goes close for the home side, but misses the target. Lively start.
    • 1' The first half is underway at the Parken Stadion.
    • 19.36 Some familiar names that used to play in Premier League in the Panathinakos line up - Jean-Alain Boumsong, Gilberto Silva, Luis Garcia and Djibril Cisse. With other notable names in the world of football in their ranks like Sidney Govou, Damien Plessis, Sebastian Leto and Giorgos Karagounis, it's hard to believe they have only picked up two points in the group stage. They'll be playing for pride tonight, but they won't make it easy for FC Copenhagen.
    • 19.25 FC Copenhagen will progress from the group stages tonight with a win, but a draw will also be enough if Rubin Kazan lose at Barcelona. But it could get tricky depending on another outcome - if Rubin Kazan grab a point and Copenhagen lose, then both sides will have the same amount of points. Both sides beat each other in the earlier group fixtures, so then it may go down to goals scored to see which side goes through. This could be a very interesting evening.
