    • Partizan Belgrade
    • Sporting Braga
    • - So Moises' header is the difference between the two teams tonight. Partizan kept coming in the second half, but just didn't have enough quality in front of goal. It finishes: Partizan 0 - 1 Braga.
    • 90'+4 It's all over! Braga take the three points here tonight!
    • 90'+3 Braga are keeping the ball very skilfully in the corner and are doing well to keep their temper up against this heavy handed Partizan team.
    • 90'+2 Braga are playing very deep now...
    • 90'+1 Lima's first contribution to the match is to hack the ball high over the bar.
    • 90' Four minutes of stoppage time to be played!
    • 89' Guess which nationality Lima is? Correct! He is Brazilian!
    • 88' Braga have made their final change: Lima has replaced Matheus.
    • 87' What is he doing!? Paulo Cesar attempts dribbling the ball out of defence and loses possession to Petrovic, but he cannot dig out a decent cross.
    • 86' Though that hack by Aguiar on Babovic may help.
    • 85' Partizan are not putting Braga under nearly as much pressure as they were five minutes ago.
    • 84' Partizan waste the free-kick though.
    • 83' Babovic is hacked down gy Aguiar on the halfway line.
    • 82' Ooo! The play opens up for Babovic who takes a shot which balloons out to the wing. The ball is loaded back into the box and is met by Petrovic, but he cannot direct his header on goal.
    • 81' Can Braga hold on!?
    • 80' Fantatstic play from Scepovic as he tiptoes his way along the goal line. He pulls the ball back, but cannot find a team mate!
    • 79' Oooo! Ilic uses Milijkovic's decoy run to distract the defenders before swinging over a beautiful, deep cross to Moreira who forces Felipe into a first classs save!
    • 76' Paulo Cesar is on end of the robust Partizan challenges now. He limps off to the physio, but should be ok to continue.
    • 75' Partizan sub: Iliev is replaced by Marko Scepovic
    • 74' Ouch. Rodriguez is sheperding the ball out of play, but Iliev is desperate for it and goes through the Braga defender to try and get the ball. That was dangerous and he rightly earns a booking.
    • 73' Stojkovic gathers the ball this time though and Partizan will go in search of an equaliser.
    • 72' But Braga reatin possession and Matheus works another corner via a deflection from Jovanovic.
    • 71' Stojkovic comes out to punch clear.
    • 71' Braga with a corner on the right...
    • 71' It will be a tough ask. They have not had a win in their 10 previous Champions League matches.
    • 70' Can they get a goal? 20 left to play!
    • 69' A loss here for Partizan will make it about 99% certain that their European adventure will be over for the year.
    • 68' Partizan continue to pressure, but they cannot seem to get a decent strike on the ball. Twice the ball is ballooned up in the air as they try and get a shot in on goal. The pressure is brought to an end when Vandinho and Petrovic clash heads when contesting one of those up and unders.
    • 67' Andres Madrid is from Argentina. Still just the one European for Braga.
    • 66' Braga sub: Alan is replaced by Andres Madrid.
    • 65' Elderson is not a popular man with the home fans as he rolls around in pain on the floor. Though he does appear to be making the most of it, he was bodychecked off the ball by Krstajic.
    • 64' Are the home fans becoming restless? It's hard to tell, all their chants seem to feature whistling and angry chanting. Sounds fantastic though!
    • 63' Cleo turns back and passes the ball back to the on-rushing Petrovic who cuts across the ball and drives a low shot just a yard wide!
    • 62' By the way, Salino, who came on for Mossoro is also a Brazilian. So Braga remain with 10 non-European players on the field.
    • 61' A lot of pressure from Partizan, but no clear sight of goal...
    • 60' They knock the free-kick square to the on-rushing Moreira who cannot work his shot past the army of bodies inside the box.
    • 59' Moises hacks down Iliev on the edge of the box. Partizan will try and work a shot from here...
    • 58' Ooo! It's pin ball in the box as neither team can get the ball under control. Iliev knocks the ball on to his right foot but can only drag a tame effort at goal. That was a good chance.
    • 57' Partizan sub: Pierre Boya is replaced by Stefan Babovic.
    • 56' Partizan get inside the Braga box, Iliev gets to the goal line and stands up a cross which is headed clear.
    • 55' Oooo! Braga attack down the left channel through Cesar who plays in Matheus who gets into the penalty area and drives a shot which is batted away by the keeper.
    • 54' Salino sprints away from the Partizan midfield, but Petrovic puts an end to that by raking his boots down the back of Salino's leg. The ref shows him a yellow card.
    • 53' A very positive start from Partizan to this second period.
    • 52' Braga sub: Mossoro is repalced by Leonardo Salino.
    • 51' The free kick is played deep and Rodriguez knocks it out of play.
    • 50' Ouch. Moises scythes down Ilic on the wing. That earns the Braga defender a yellow card.
    • 49' Milijakovic has surrendered possession almost evertime he has received the ball this evening, and he does so again to Petrovic and then fouls the Braga winger.
    • 48' From our friends at Infostarda: Sporting Braga have fielded 10 non-European players against Partizan. 3rd time in Champions League history this has happened
    • 47' Partizan begin the second half on the attack through Iliev who gets to the goal line and stands up a cross to the back post which is cleared.
    • 46' Braga get the second half underway.
    • 45'+1 Peep-peep-peep. The first half is brought to an end. Though the possession stats will tell you Partizan are shading the match, in truth, Braga are just about good value for their lead. At the break it is: Partizan 0-1 Braga.
    • 45' But Milijkovic mis controls the ball and Braga regain possession.
    • 44' Partizan are going in search of a goal before half time.
    • 43' Shakhtar are now leading! Bad news for these two! Click here to read about it!
    • 42' Paulo Cesar is teed up by Aguiar and hits right footed whot is easily saved by the keeper.
    • 41' Moreira's tame shot has even more juice taken out of it by a deflection. The keeper gathers the ball easily...
    • 40' Things are getting a bit spicy in the middle of the park. Iliev blocks off Aguiar who responds by kicking him across the calf.
    • 39' Boya receives the ball down the right hand channel, takes a couple of touches and fires a wild shot over the bar.
    • 38' Ilic runs down the reverse of Iliev but his touch is far too heavy and the ball runs out oif play.
    • 37' Matheus has a snap shot blocked on the edge of the box.
    • 36' It would be wrong to say that goal was coming, but Braga have looked the most likely to score...
    • 35' Gooalll! Moises puts Braga 1-0 up! The centre back runs onto a deep free-kick to head a looped effort, over the keeper and into the back of the net.
    • 34' Hitting the ball into Row Z here is quite an effort because there is a running track.
    • 33' Paulo Cesar runs on to the ball 25 yards out on the left and tries to bend it in the top corner. He cannot wrap his foot around the ball though and strikes it into row Z.
    • 32' The home crowd are still in good voice and are producing deafening shrill whistling when the visitors are in possession.
    • 31' Both teams are struggling to find a killer final ball.
    • 30' Braga enjoy a little spell of possession but, it is given away by Elderson who tries playing the ball down the line where Milijkovic eagerly intercepts the play.
    • 29' Ooo! Mossoro cutely flicks the ball on to Aguiar on the edge of the box..he turns Jovanovic quickly and hits a powerful shot over the bar. That is the first real sight of goal anyone has had all evening.
    • 28' Braga waste the corner though.
    • 27' Mossoro is slipped in down the right hand channel and his attempted cross is cleared for a corner.
    • 26' Shakhtar are level against Arsenal. That goal could be crucial for the Ukranians and will mean that these two teams will be desperate for a win tonight. Click here to read about the equaliser.
    • 25' Braga, who are unbeaten in four games against clubs from Serbia, are one of only two CL newcomers to win a match this season. The other is Tottenham Hotspur. Of 18 games played by the six debutants, 13 have been lost and only two won.
    • 24' Cleo doesn't even look at the ball as he jumps in with all his might into Moises. The referee will have a word with the Partizan forward for that misdemeanour.
    • 23' Mossoro has Lazevski chasing back to his goal, shielding the ball before needlessly clipping his heels and conceding a free-kick.
    • 22' The free kick is knocked into Moreira who initially controls the ball on his chest before surrendering possession.
    • 21' Cleo is hauled down and Partizan will try and load this ball into the box.
    • 20' Alan flicks the ball on to Matheus who attacks down the right before playing a weak, daisy cutter of a cross which is easily intercepted.
    • 19' Iliev theatrically throws himself to the floor and referee Hansson is not fooling for any of that...
    • 18' Still no clear sight of goal here in Belgrade.
    • 17' Ilic is battling well in the middle of the park. All of the Partizan players look very lively in midfield.
    • 16' Braga are nicknamed Os Arsenalistas and are wearing red shirts and white sleeves, similar to the Arsenal's.
    • 15' Partizan are tonight wearing black and white striped shirts, white shorts and white socks.
    • 14' The ball is swung in deep and is easy for Felipe to gather.
    • 13' Partizan with a free kick out on the left.
    • 12' The ball is drilled square to Aguiar at the top of the penalty area. He shoots first time, it skips up off the surface and is saved at full stretch by Stojkovic.
    • 11' Partizan do better on this corner and clear the ball.
    • 10' Stojkovic launches himself at the ball to try and stop a corner, but the ball wins the race...
    • 9' Arsenal are one up. Click here to read about it.
    • 8' Rodrigues jumps highest at the corner, but can only allow the ball to skim across his head rather than getting a firm touch on the ball.
    • 7' Cleo drives a low shot at goal which Felipe gets down early to and makes a routine save.
    • 6' An open start to this half...
    • 5' Iliev gets to the by-line, cuts back inside and then cuts to the by-line one more before digging out a deep cross to Cleo who controls the ball on his chest, but cannot work half a yard for a shot.
    • 4' Krstajic steps across Matheus and plants his shoulder into the forward's jaw. That was very nasty. The referee doesn't agree and awards a throw in.
    • 3' That is a weak effort. Aguiar curls the free-kick high over the bar.
    • 2' Petrovic hacks at Mossoro's Achilles and Braga will have a free-kick 25 yards out...
    • 1' Partizan get the match underway!
    • 19:45 There was an earthquake in central Serbia today. As a mark of respect to those who lost their lives, we will have a moments silence before the match begins...
    • 19:43 The Champions League anthem rings out around the stadium. That tune always gets the heart beating just a little bit quicker!
    • 19:40 What an atmosphere! The Partizan fans have made a black and white mosaic around the stadium as they bellow out their club's anthem.
    • 19:35 Partizan have not lost at home in six matches against Portuguese clubs but they have drawn the last three and cannot count a victory since beating Portimonense 4-0 in the 1985-86 UEFA Cup.
    • 19:30 Taking charge of the match tonight is the 39 year old, part-time fireman, fishing enthusiast and all round good egg: The Swede, Martin Hansson.
    • 19:25 There is some ridiculous numbering going on tonight. Stojkovic in the Partizan goal is wearing 88, while Felipe in the Braga goal is wearing 84. Iliev wears 77, Vaninho wears 88 and Matheus wears 99. What happened to just a 1-11?
    • 19:20 By the end of the night we should have a fairly good idea as to how well set the four clubs in Group H will be to continue their European adventures. Arsenal can guarantee qualification with a win away to Shakhtar. Should that happen Braga will tie level on six points with the Ukranians with a victory tonight; a set of circumstances that will put pay to Partizan's chances of European competition for the rest of the year.
    • 19:15 Branga boss Domingos Paciencia has been sweating over two thigh injuries this week. Paulao has not made it, but Alberto Rodriguez has.
    • 19:10 Partizan manager Aleksandar Stanojevic has an injury and suspension free squad to choose from tonight. He has welcomed back Marki Jovanovic who has been suspended since receiving a red card on Matchday two.
