    Lille and Trabzonspor both failed to make it into the Champions League last 16 after playing out a sluggish goalless draw in France. More

  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Lille OSC
    • Trabzonspor
    • 90+1' Burak Tilmaz is being replaced by Mustafa Yumlu. Some time-wasting appears to be going on here...
    • 90+3 And that's it! 0-0 and the way it stands, with Moscow leading in Italy, both teams are out of the Champions League.
    • 90+2 If a goal is coming, it will be one hell of a surprise.
    • 90 Well played Zengin, who jumps highest and gathers Rodelin's cross into the box.
    • 89' It's attack versus defence as Lille push for that all important winner.
    • 87' Time wasting here from Trabzonspor. Do they know they need a win to go through?!
    • 86' Rodelin attempts a run down the challenge before his tame cross is blocked and goes out for a goal kick.
    • 85' Another goal for Moscow in Italy! A draw isn't enough for either team now. Right now, the Russian team are going through!
    • 84 Payet off, Ronny Rodelin on. Can Rodelin become a hero and net his first goal of the season?
    • 82' Bonnart replaces Beira. Strange that one - a full-back coming on when you're in desperate need of a goal?
    • 83' Balmont wins the ball back for Lille in the final third, Sow then picks it up but can only drag his shot well wide.
    • 81' Trabzonspor corner amounts to nothing and Lille aim to carve open a chance of their own.
    • 80' Now Landreau is called into action. Burak Yilmaz breaks free and blasts towards goal only for Landreau to parry away for a corner.
    • 78' Chance for Trabzonspor. Adrian curls just wide after sloppy play by Lille who are starting to look a shadow of their second half selves.
    • 77' Frustration is clearly visible amongst the Lille players. Have they already lost the faith?
    • 76' Obrabniak wins another free-kick for teh hosts. The sub takes it, but that is disappointing as Trabzonspor clear their lines.
    • 75' Awful delivery from Hazard straight into the Trabzonspor wall.
    • 74' Payet brought down by Adrian. Free-kick to Lille in a promising position...
    • 73' As Trabzonspor grow in confidence so too do their fans, who you can now hear cheering on their side.
    • 72' Yellow for Beria for a synical hand-ball. The defender now misses Lille's next European match - whether it's this season or the next.
    • 71' This is a totally different Trabzonspor to that of the first half. Their strength and high fitness levels are coming through now and Lille look desperate now for an opening.
    • 70' Yet again, Lille hoof the ball up to Sow and that's an easy catch for Zengin.
    • 69' Lille playing patiently now, working the ball in their own half from left to right.
    • 68' Tactical substitution by Lille: Off comes Joe Cole for Ludovic Obraniak.
    • 66' Another foul, this time by Debuchy on Altintop. Although I have to say the big Trabzonspor striker went down rather easy there.
    • 65' This is getting scrappy now, to the delight of Trabzonspor who seem to be welcoming it.
    • 64' Poor attempted pass by Payet who tries to pick out Sow inside the final third but the Senegal striker isn't that quick!
    • 63' Alanzinho comes off - a little hesitant - for Paulo Henrique.
    • 62' Balmont surges into the Trabzonspor half and nearly provides Sow with a tap-in but for a timely interception by Giray Kacar.
    • 33' Adrian Mierzejewski replaces the injured Ondrej Celustka.
    • 60' And there's handbags between Zokora and Chedjou. Both are given a booking too.
    • 59' Balmont recieves a yellow card for a foul on Adrian.
    • 58' Zokora with a brillaint block to stop Cole from sneaking in the opening goal. Beria's strike falls to the former Liverpool man, but his weak effort is comfortably dealt with by the former Spurs midfielder.
    • 57' Admirable pressing from Trabzonspor who pin Lille back into their own half.
    • 56' Lille look to be tiring now with the visitors winning more battles in the middle of the park and getting their fair shar eof possession.
    • 55' Can we hear whistles from the home fans?
    • 54' Basa heads wide! Corner is floated in and the big center-half times his jump perfectly but fails to connect with any real power.
    • 53' Back to square one then!
    • 52' Wait a sec...another goal in Italy! And it's the equaliser by Argentina international Cambiasso!
    • 51' Maybe that will reach the players on the pitch here and both sides will start attacking with more purpose as this game is becoming a little pedestrian.
    • 50' News coming in from Italy...Duoumbia has put Moscow ahead!
    • 49' Back to the Hazard and Zengin show now. From 30 yards Hazard fires down the throat of teh 'keeper who is fully behind it. Whatever the Belgium throws - or shoots - at him, Zengin is there ready and waiting.
    • 48' Great cross by Altintop which looked to be heading straight to Burak inside the Lille area only for Chedkou to leap and head powerfully clear.
    • 47' It's still 0-0 in the other Group B game between Inter Milan and CSKA Moscow. Should results stay the same, Trabzonspor will go through to the last 16 in the Champions League.
    • 46' And we're back. The hosts kick-off the second half at the Stade Lille-Metropole.
    • 45' There goes the half-time whistle. Lille 'keeper Landreau has largely been a spectator, while Zengin in the opposite end has without doubt proved his worth and kept his side still in this game. Trabzonspor will be the happier, but if they want to win this and qualify for the last 16, they must up the tempo going forward and test Landreau.
    • 44' Trabzonspor playing keep ball now. Judging by the first half, they'll be delighted to go in at half time all square.
    • 43' Stray pass there from Debuchy. Have Lille run out of ideas?
    • 42' It appears that challenge was a painful one too, as Altintop - whose birthday it is tomorrow - is down injured.
    • 41' Altinop with a super tackle their from a frontman to stop Lille developing another promising attack.
    • 40' The home crowd are starting to get a tad restless. Yes, Lille have had chance to take the lead, yet, so far, it's still 0-0.
    • 38' The visitors are looking more secure in defence now, intercepting, tackling and thumping each and every ball that enters their penalty box. But for how long can they keep this up for?
    • 37' Late flag! The visitors almost prize an opening of their own but Burak Yimaz strayed a little too early offside when the ball was played through to him. If he just delayed his run there, he would have been clean through.
    • 36' Alanzinho catches Balmont late. Nothing nasty but I'm sure it's a sore one for the Lille midfielder to take.
    • 35' ...only to gift the ball back to the home side.
    • 34' Trabzonspor finally get out of their own half....
    • 33' Giray caught in possession in his own half by Sow, but fortunatley for the defender the away side manage to scramble the ball clear.
    • 31' If it doesn't sound like it already, believe me, this really is one way traffic!
    • 30' How did Cole miss the target? Great exchange of passes between Hazard and Cole sees the Englishman blast low past the left-hand post
    • 29' My is Zengin busy! The 'keeper does well to dive and push away a fierce long-range effort by Mavuba. It seems the game is Lille versus Zengin!
    • 28' Another dangerous delivery from Hazard but that's comfortably gathered by Zengin.
    • 27' Despite having plenty of men behind the ball, Lille's attackers are proving far too quick for Trabzonspor. This time it's Payet's turn to fire off target on the edge of the area.
    • 26' Nearly the opener for the hosts. Sow is inches away from connecting with a dangerous inswinging cross by Cole.
    • 25' Although Lille have fantastic technical players at their disposal, it's their hunger and will to win the ball back which has caused Trabzonspor real problems.
    • 24' A commanding Zengin is on hand to punch the corner clear. The goalkeeper is having a fine match.
    • 23' Speaking of Beira...the little left back nearly gets in down Trabzonspor's right, but can only win a corner.
    • 21' Lille's full-back's have been excellent so far. Both Debuchy and Beria have defended resolutely while also proving handy going forward.
    • 20' Hazard with another strike. It sails high and wide. But Trabzonspor have been warned, this guy means buisness.
    • 18' Trabzonspor give it away again - that's sloppy. Here come Lille...
    • 17' The guy is almost unplayable! Hazard beats two, plays a one-two with Sow, before dragging his shot just wide of Zengin's right-hand post.
    • 16' Basa tries his luck from distance there, but that was always going wide.
    • 15' Lille start another attack from the back. The home fans are getting louder and louder. They must feel that a goal for their team is coming soon.
    • 14' Watching replays of the Hazard strike and it's still difficult to understand how Zengin got down so quickly to keep the match at 0-0.
    • 13' Great save from Zengin! Hazard, who has looked lively from the start, hits it low and hard only for Zengin to meet it with a strong left hand parry away from danger.
    • 12' Debuchy was almost in again there but Glowacki was on hand to make a well-timed challenge.
    • 11' Lille seem to have backed off after that strike from Yilmaz.
    • 10' Fabulous strike there by Yilmaz! Out of nowhere the midfielder unleashes a speculative effort from 30 yards that dips belatedly, almost catching Landreau off guard. So close!
    • 9' Mavuba looks for Sow with a long ball through the middle, but that's bread and butter for Glowacki and Cech.
    • 8' The home team are getting a lot of joy down Trabzonspor's left-hand side. That time, Payet tries to beat too many men and the away team clear.
    • 7' Lille bossing this game in the opening five or so minutes. What Trabzonspor need right now is the ball so that they can start causing the hosts some problems and give their back four a break!
    • 6' Super counter-attacking football there from Sow. The forward's pace caused the Trabzonspor defence a host of problems, only for his shot to be easily dealt by Zengin.
    • 5' Poor corner kick there, very comfortable for the visitors.
    • 4' Payet whips in a telling cross only for Celustka to head bravely out for a corner.
    • 3' Hazard already pulling the strings here. Neat footwork from the Belguim, before passing to Joe Cole who draws the foul inside the opposition's half. Free-kick to Lille.
    • 2' Positive start from the hosts. Lille full back Debuchy just strayed offside inside the final third.
    • 1' Trabzonspor get us off and underway, kicking from left to right. The atmosphere is electric - let's hope that the game is too!
    • 19:42 One final note: should the game end in a draw and CSKA Moscow win versus Inter in the other Group B match, Trabzonspor would qualify for the Europa League knocking Lille out of Europe altogether. Hope that's cleared everything up!
    • 19:40 In charge of proceedings tonight is referee Pedro Proenca from Portugal.
    • 19:38 But that hasn't stopped the Trabzonspor fans from believing their team can go against the form book tonight and seal what would surely be a dramatic win. The away side sold their ticket allocation for matchday six inside four hours!
    • 19:35 Trabzonspor form isn't too pleasing on the eye, having gone four matches without a victory, Gunes' side have won just twice in ten games in all competitions.
    • 19:34 Lille have suffered defeat only twice in 31 matches in all competitions at the Stade-Lille Metropole, yet Les Dogues have won only five of their last ten matches at home.
    • 19:30 If you're still unsure as to who can grab that all important win tonight, here are a few stats that may help you decide. Unfortunately, it doesn't look too promising for the visitors!
    • 19:25 While for the visitors, Senol Gunes welcomes back a host of first team regulars who were given a welcome rest last Friday in the Turkish League. Maybe Gunes believes stamina will play its part tonight and a late winner may well be on the cards?
    • 19:20 So Lille coach Rudi Garcia brings back the team's Belgium prodigy Eden Hazard and Senegalese hotshot Moussa Sow from last weekend's Ligue 1 clash against AC Ajaccio to provide what looks like a very offensive line-up for the home team.
    • 19:16 AND HERE ARE THE TEAM LINE-UPS! LILLE: Landreau, Debuchy, Basa, Chedjou, Beria, Balmont, Mavuba, Payet, Cole, Hazard, Sow...Subs: Enyeama, Gueye, Souare, Obraniak, Rodelin, Bonnart, Jelen. /// TRABZONSPOR: Zengin, Celustka, Kacar, Glowacki, Cech, Balci, Zokora, Colman, Altintop, Alanzinho, Yilmaz...Subs: Kivrak, Mierzejewski, Henrique, Yumlu, Akgun, Pawel Brozek, Oztorun.
    • 19:15 But wait - Trabzonspor are unbeaten against French opposition in European competition with two wins and one draw, scoring nine goals in the process. Only the very brave can call this fixture.
    • 19:10 STAT: Hope for the hosts. Lille remain unbeaten against Turkish opposition in European competition, winning once and drawing twice.
    • 19:05 Home advantage for the French side may not in fact prove pivotal tonight, as Lille’s only win so far in Group B occurred in their last Champions League outing away to CSKA Moscow, while Trabzonspor’s sole victory this season in Europe happened in week one away to Inter at the San Siro.
    • 19:00 For Lille and Trabzonspor, the task at hand is simple; win tonight and you’ll join Inter into the last 16! It's winner-takes-all here in France, but which team do you think will turn out victorious?
    • 18:55 Bonsoir and good evening, welcome to LIVE coverage of the Champions League Group B showdown between Lille LOSC and Trabzonspor AS at the Stade Lille-Metropole. A place in the last 16 is up for grabs for the winners. However, should this match end in a draw and CSKA Moscow defeat Inter Milan – a team who have already qualified as group winners - then both teams will fail to progress beyond the group stages and it will be the Russian side who advance.
