    Time:90'
    • Panathinaikos
    • FC Copenhagen
    • 90'+3 It's all over! Copenhagen get a famous 0-2 victory to go top of Group D!
    • 90'+2 Leto swings in a free kick and the keeper comes out to gather.
    • 90'+1 Ooo! Cisse gets into the box and stings the palms of Wiland in the visitor's goal!
    • 89' Three minutes stoppage time to be played here...
    • 87' Plessis plays a poor pass and surrenders possession. He has had a poor match since coming on.
    • 86' Leto stumbles over and grabs the ball expecting a free kick. The referee's whistle sounds and a handball is given.
    • 85' The home fans are still in good voice. It will be interesting to hear the reaction from them at the final whistle.
    • 84' Kvist sloppily loses the ball for the visitors and is immediately shouted at by his manager. Stale Solbakken does not want to end this match poorly.
    • 83' This match is taking place at walking pace.
    • 79' Copenhagen make their final substitution: Thomas Delaney replaces Claudemir.
    • 78' Ooo! The corner is swung deep, flicked on and then dropped back into the six yard box. Copenhagen are first to react and the ball is cleared.
    • 77' Karagounis takes a poor free kick into the wall and behind for a corner.
    • 76' Kvist trips Marinos down the left hand channel and Pana will have a free kick...
    • 75' Copenhagen sub: The hero of the night, Dame N'Doye is replaced by Cesar Santin.
    • 74' Oooo! Karagounis plays in a low cross to the front post which Cisse gets to and flicks the ball over the keeper and just over the bar!
    • 72' Karagounis lunges in from behind on Kvist and receives a yellow card. That challenge was born out of pure desperation.
    • 70' This is getting embarrassing for Panathinaikos now.
    • 69' Pospech far too easily gets past the home defence and at half pace gets to the goal line, but his pull back cannot find a team mate.
    • 68' Ooo! Gronkjaer back heels the ball to Wendt and pulls the ball back to Norregarard six yards out who stabs an effort on to the bar!
    • 67' Plessis does well to intercept the ball, but plays an abysmal pass toward Cisse.
    • 66' The home support have woken up and are clapping in unison. Now time for their team to do the same...
    • 65' There has been 12 penalties in the Champions League today. That has been about the only thing missing from this match.
    • 64' Norregaard receives a whack on the head from Simao, but jumps straight back up and plays on. How refreshing.
    • 63' Plessis looks to slide a pass to Cisse, but the ball runs through to the keeper.
    • 62' If this was a boxing match then the referee would call a TKO.
    • 61' Gronkjaer and Wendt quite literally run into each other on the half way line (they play for the same team).
    • 60' That man N'Doye hits a drive from an acute angle and wide.
    • 59' So is this a sign of surrender from Panathinaikos? If they were to get back into this match, then surely having Ninis and Garcia on the pitch would have been wise?
    • 58' Cisse hits a frustrated effort from 25 yards which is charged down.
    • 57' Panathinaikos' change is to bring off Sotiris Ninis for Damien Plessis.
    • 56' But first of Copenhagen are going to make a sub: Bolanos is replaced by Hjalte Norregaard.
    • 55' Pana are set to make their third change.
    • 54' Copenhagen are passing the ball around comfortably in midfield with very little pressure coming from the home team.
    • 53' It has gone very quiet in the Spiros Louis Stadium.
    • 52' As it stands Copenhagen are top of Group D, above Barcelona!
    • 51' N'Doye receives a yellow card for dissent.
    • 50' 0-2 down and with only ten men...This match is surely all over.
    • 49' RED CARD! Gilberto Silva has received his second yellow card for handball!
    • 48' The second change has seen Kostas Katsouranis replaced by Giorgos Karagounis.
    • 47' Panathinaikos have made a double change at the break. Luis Garcia has been replaced by Nikos Spryopoulos.
    • 46' We are back underway in Athens...
    • 45' Peep-peep-peep! Half time in Athens where Copenhagen lead 0-2!
    • 43' Cisse hits a shot from 25 yards which doesn't trouble the keeper.
    • 42' The home crowd are getting on the back of the home team who are clearly rattled. Half time cannot come quick enough for Pana.
    • 41' The corner is a poor one and is easy for Tzorvas to gather, no wait, he punches. Why on earth did he punch that? There was no one near him?
    • 40' Ooo! Bolanos streaks down the right and plays the ball to Claudemir on the top of the box who side foots an effort which is deflected behind for a corner!
    • 39' Gronkjaer sprints and holds up the ball in the corner. Surely he isn't seeing out the clock already?
    • 38' Dreamland for the 300 travelling Copenhagen fans!
    • 37' 28 metres out? That's just a number to Vingaard who runs up and lashes a low, dipping strike which moves in the air and into the bottom corner.
    • 36' Gooaallll!!! What a strike from Martin Vingaard! It's 0-2 to Copenhagen!
    • 35' N'Doye has the beating of Gilberto Silva and the home team captain cynically hauls the forward to the ground. That earns the former Arsenal man a yellow card.
    • 33' Cisse carries the ball 15 yards into the Copenhagen half and lets fly with a speculative effort which he gets under - sending it over - and slices - sending it wide.
    • 32' Perhaps N'Doye should have held his run a touch there...will they be made to regret that wonderful opportunity?
    • 31' Oh, what a chance for Copenhagen! Again Pana are undone by a straight ball down the middle and it is two-on-one as Gronkjaer gathers the ball! He tries to square the ball to N'Doye, but the pass is just behind the forward!
    • 30' Ooo! Leto angles a right footed shot from the left side of the box which Wiland makes sure goes wide by tipping the ball around the post
    • 29' N'Doye used to play for Pana, what a way to mark your return to Athens!
    • 28' N'Doye beats the offside trap and is put in one on one by Gronkjaer. N'Doye looks up and sees Panathinaikos' keeper - Tzorvas - 30 yards from goal and the Senegalese forward lifts the ball over the keeper and into the back of the net!
    • 27' Goooaaallll!!!! N'Doye scores for Copenhagen!
    • 26' Garcis strikes the ball from 25 yards which deflects off Jorgensen and out for a throw.
    • 25' The possession stats say it is 50-50, and that just about sums up the match so far.
    • 24' Cisse streaks forward and crosses into the box which could have been dangerous had there been any green shirts in the box.
    • 23' The corner is played deep and knocked behind for a goal kick. That could have been a decent chance for the visitors - they had a spare man at the back post.
    • 22' N'Doye looks to outmuscle Gilberto Silva in the box and the ball is knocked behind for a corner.
    • 21' There was some speculation that Gilberto Silva would play in midfield tonight, however, he has lined up at centre back.
    • 20' The 300 travelling supporters are unsurprisingly not being heard over the raucous din which the home fans are making.
    • 19' Vyntra htis a low shot from 25 yards which is palmed behind for a corner!
    • 18' Simao breaks up play brilliantly and plays in Leto who whips the ball into the danger zone, but the ball is cleared by the defence.
    • 17' Both defences are being allowed time of the ball.
    • 16' Tonight's referee is William Collum from Scotland.
    • 15' N'Doye accaelerates away from Sarriegi but is hauled down by the Pana defender. Free kick, no yellow card though.
    • 14' Simao drills a shot which is straight down the throat of the keeper. Decent strike, but no threat at all.
    • 13' This stadium is named after Spiros Louis who won the marathon at the first modern Olympics in 1896.
    • 12' Copenhagen have lost four of their five away matches in European competition. So surely this means a home win then?
    • 11' Gronkjaer fizzes a cross which would have be dangerous if an away forward gambles to the near post. They don't gamble though and the keeper gathers the ball.
    • 10' Claudemir's poor minute is compounded by receiving a yellow card for a trip on Leto.
    • 9' Just as I say that...Copenhgaen streak forward and have a man over down then right, but Claudemir's pass to Pospech is a poor one and the full back is sent wide. Pospech sends in a cross toward N'Doye which is cleared before the Senegalese forward can get his head on the ball.
    • 8' It has been all Panathinaikos so far...
    • 7' The two teams are playing on a lush new surface which has recently been re-laid after a pop concert.
    • 6' Marinos makes a good run forward from full back and drills in a cross which is cleared.
    • 5' Leto slides the ball through to Cisse who for half a second looks to have the beating of Jorgensen, but the Dane recovers to clear the danger.
    • 4' FC Copenhagen are dressed in all white with blue trim.
    • 3' The home team are wearing all green with white trim.
    • 2' Ooo! Cisse hits a volley from 25 yards which Wiland has to punch over the bar!
    • 1' Panathinaikos get the match underway!
    • 19:43 We are about ready for kick off, hold on to your hats!
    • 19:42 And here is the famous Champions League anthem which never fails to raise the hair on the back of my neck.
    • 19:40 As the Panathinaikos anthem sounds, and the home fans create a mosaic, the teams emerge from the tunnel...
    • 19:35 It's a scorching night in Athens where temperatures are touching 25 degrees.
    • 19:30 Copenhagen boss Stale Solbakken has named the same team who won 3-0 away at FC Midtjylland on Saturday. The Danish champions are undefeated in the league campaign after ten matches.
    • 19:25 So that means Pana have made two changes to the team which beat Panionios GSS at the weekend. Manager Nikos Niopilas has dropped Jean Alain Boumsong and Cedric Kante, replaing them with Simao and Stergos Marinos. Wondering where Sidney Govou is? Well, he is back in France following the death of his father.
