    Time:90'
    • Sporting Braga
    • Galatasaray
    • 90+2' Melo heads away Alan's cross from the right. And that is full-time. Galatasaray go through as runners-up in Group H behind Manchester United.
    • 90' Burak Yilmaz turns Amorim in the area but Quim manages to get a finger on the Turk's shot and deflect the ball onto the crossbar.
    • 89' Coelho does well to stop Amrabat's surge down the right.
    • 88' Nounkeu concedes a corner, but again Viana's delivery is woeful.
    • 87' Selcuk concedes a free-kick on Mossoro, but Viana's set-piece fails to beat the first man.
    • 86' As it stands, Galatasaray are through as runners-up in Group H.
    • 85' Carlao replaces Elder for Braga.
    • 84' Selcuk throws a palm at Mossoro. Both get yellow cards.
    • 83' Elderson concedes a free-kick down by the right corner flag, but Salino is able to clear.
    • 82' Salino is quick to get in front of Burak Yilmaz after a one-two on the edge of the area.
    • 81' Amorim gets a yellow after he drags back Yalmaz.
    • 79' Hugo Viana is on for Braga in place of Custodio.
    • 78' GOAL and it is 2-1 to GALATASARAY!! Aydin Yalmaz pokes home after Quim saves Melo's shot across goal, but deflects the ball straight into the 24-year-old's path.
    • 76' Amrabat wins a corner off Custodio. Selcuk's corner is eventually cleared.
    • 75' Nounkeu, who is taking the goal-kicks, now seems to be limping!
    • 74' Nounkeu concedes a free-kick for a foul on Eder on the right. Elderson's header from Alan's cross is poor.
    • 73' Alan concedes a free-kick, but Custodio clears the set-piece.
    • 72' Muslera takes Salino's cross from the right well under pressure. Good build-up play by Alan and Mossoro.
    • 71' Alan tries to find Ismaily 35 yards out from the corner, but he fails to connect truly with the volley.
    • 70' Riera takes out Alan on the edge of the area but again Rizzoli is kind. The former Liverpool winger is on a tightrope here.
    • 69' Semih intercepts again in the centre from Elder's centre.
    • 68' Umut Bulut is on in place of Emre Colak.
    • 67' Riera catches the ball by mistake as he is convinced that the ball was out of play. He is already on a yellow so he is a lucky boy!
    • 66' Mossoro tries another effort from distance but this time his shot hits a defender.
    • 64' Ismaily unleashes an effort from the left flank which just whistles past Muslera's near post.
    • 63' Riera gets a yellow for a foul on Eder. Ismaily's free-kick drifts just over.
    • 62' Melo finds Eboue down the right with a magnificent reverse pass, but then the Ivorian falls over as he goes into the area.
    • 61' Amrabat is furious that he is adjudged to have fouled Salino down the right.
    • 59' Selcuk's free-kick is cleared by Eder, but the Turkish side now look as if they believe they can go through. They just need to win this game, remember.
    • 57' Amrabat does well to cut inside Salino, and Burak gets in front of Vinicius to head home. It is game on now!
    • 56' GOAL: AND IT IS 1-1. Burak Yilmaz heads home for Galatasaray for his sixth of the CL campaign.
    • 54' News from Old Trafford, and Cluj are 1-0 up on Manchester United! That has quietened the away fans here.
    • 53' Semih heads away under pressure from Eder. Good defending again by Galatasaray's stand-out player.
    • 52' Custodio concedes a foul 40 yards out by the touchline, but Secuk's free-kick is too short.
    • 51' Custodio's cross from the right finds Alan, but the Brazilian is unable to get the ball back into the danger area.
    • 50' Melo then clears a second Alan corner.
    • 49' Ismaily's cross is cleared by Semih. Melo clears the subsequent corner.
    • 48' The first three minutes of this half have been as bad as the previous 45. Salino gets a yellow card for a hack on Burak.
    • 47' Terim hauls off the deeply disappointing Elmander and Altintop for the pair.
    • 46' Second half kicks off in Portugal. Terim is talking tactics with his substitutes Aydin Yilmaz and Nordin Amrabat.
    • 45' No additional time added on. It is Braga 1-0 Galatasaray, and as it stands Fatih Terim's side are on their way out of the Champions League.
    • 44' Alan is furious as Rizzoli deems that he has fouled Riera.
    • 43' Elderson clears from Elmander in the area - the Swede has been dreadful so far.
    • 41' Vinicius clears Burak's cross from the left for a corner. Semih tries to flick Altintop's second ball goalwards, but it floats over.
    • 40' Alan cuts inside Riera and shoots, but Muslera is able to beat his shot away.
    • 39' Selcuk floats a free-kick from 30 yards under the bar, but Quim does well to flick the ball over the bar. That may be the 37-year-old's first save of the game!
    • 38' Fatih Terim is furious on the sidelines - understandably.
    • 37' Eboue clears up under pressure from Mossoro, with Alan again the instigator on the right.
    • 36' Flares are going off in the Galatasaray end, to make up for their side's lack of flair on the pitch.
    • 35' Braga look very comfortable on the ball - you can see how they won in Istanbul in the return leg.
    • 33' That is Mossoro's second goal of the season, and first in the Champions League.
    • 32' Braga take the lead, and that was solely down to some dreadful Galatasaray defending. Mossoro strokes the ball in from 25 yards, after Melo miskicks on the edge of the area as he attempts to clear Salino's centre.
    • 30' Galatasaray goalkeeper Muslera has got a problem, as Dany Nounkeu took that last goal-kick.
    • 29' Braga break and Alan sets up Eder, but his shot is blocked by Semih on the edge of the area.
    • 28' Yilmaz times a run down the right, but his pass back is miscontrolled by Altintop.
    • 27' This is quite a rubbish game so far. Galatasaray are not going for it at all. Neutrals must hope that Cluj score at Old Trafford soon.
    • 26' Yilmaz breaks down the right but there is no white shirt in the centre and Vinicius clears for a corner.
    • 24' Eder tries to take on Semih down the left, but the Galatasaray defender holds firm.
    • 23' This is a very niggly game. Expect a yellow card from Italian referee Nicola Rizzoli soon enough.
    • 22' Alan takes Ismaily's cross down perfectly in the area, then shoots over wildly.
    • 21' It is Manchester United 0-0 Cluj at Old Trafford, so Galatasaray are going through if it stays like this.
    • 20' Ismaily's decent cross from the left is flapped at unconvincingly by Muslera, but Galatasaray clear through Riera.
    • 19' Burak Yilmaz miscontrols running on to a ball into the Braga area and Braga goalkeeper Quim picks up.
    • 18' There are no goals anywhere in the Champions League tonight so far.
    • 17' Semih blocks Eder in the area after he runs onto a pass from the right from Alan.
    • 16' Mossoro floats a ball into the box, and Vinicius toe-pokes it toward goal but it gets a deflection and goes for a corner.
    • 15' Mossoro steals the ball in the edge of the area and puts in Eder, but Felipe Melo comes back to make a great block.
    • 14' Eder wins the ball on the edge of the box, but Semih again clears, this time at full stretch.
    • 13' Salino breaks down the right and crosses it in for Mossoro, but the 29-year-old is unable to control.
    • 12' Eboue clears a header after a Braga break. The Portuguese side have looked quite sharp in the early stages.
    • 11' Eboue's cross from the right evades everybody and Braga clear.
    • 10' Burak Yilmaz is down after being studded by Eder. That looked very painful.
    • 8' Semih Kaya is in postion to clear Eder's low cross from the left, after Altintop lost possession in midfield.
    • 7' Altintop's cross from the right is headed clear.
    • 6' Nothing comes from the attack. The noise and colour from the Galatasaray end is impressive, compared to the rest of the ground.
    • 5' Eboue lands awkwardly after competing with Elderson for a high ball and wins a free-kick.
    • 4' Muslera easily fields a low shot from Ismaily.
    • 3' Galatasaray are sloppy, and Alan finds Mossoro in the centre ten yards out but the Brazilian shoots over.
    • 2' A cagey start, but Braga seem to be employing a high line. Semih Kaya blocks from Ismaely.
    • 1' Braga kick off and the Galatasaray fans are already singing.
    • 19:45 Eboue, Riera and Elmander are all former Premier League players. There is a minute's silence at the start, but for what I did not hear.
    • 19:42 Lots of the Galatasaray fans are shirtless. Obviously they are the Newcastle of the East.
    • 19:41 This is the cool stadium built into a rockface, remember. Galatasaray are in white, Braga in a most unfetching lime green.
    • 19:40 The Galatasaray fans are bunched up in their end, while there are thousands of empty spaces around the rest of the ground!
    • 19:35 A club record seven Braga players featured in Portugal's 2-2 friendly draw with Gabon in Libreville last month: Helder Barbosa, Custodio, Beto, Ruben Micael, Ruben Amorim, Hugo Viana and Eder.
    • 19:30 Umut Bulut (11) and Burak (13) have scored 24 of Galatasaray's 41 goals in all competitions this season.
    • 19:25 Burak this season become the first Turkish player to represent four different clubs in the UEFA Champions League. He has previously featured for Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor.
    • 19:20 Braga's Champions League campaign can be summed up by one game. They lost 2-0 to CFR 1907 Cluj on Matchday One despite having 35 shots, 23 on target.
    • 19:15 Paulo Vinícius is back in the Braga side having recovered from a thigh complaint but fellow defender Douglao is suspended. Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera has passed a late fitness test on a thigh complaint, but defender Cris has failed to recover from a calf injury.
    • 19:10 Fatih Terim's men have posted two victories and a draw after losing their first two games, which included a 2-0 defeat to Braga at Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompleksi on 2 October.
    • 19:05 Braga's Alan and Galatasaray's Burak Y覺lmaz are the competition's joint top scorers with five goals alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
    • 19:00 Galatasaray's Matchday Four win at Cluj was their first away win in the Champions League since September 2002.
    • 18:55 No more than 10,000 supporters are expected at the 32,000 capacity ground tonight, and that includes the 2,000 away fans travelling.
    • 18:50 SC BRAGA: Quim, Coelho, Elderson, Ismaely, Paulo Vinicius, Ruben Amorim, Mossoro, Leandro Salino, Custodio, Alan, Eder...Subs: Beto, Baiano, Aníbal Capela, Hugo Viana, Paulo Cesar, Helder Barbosa, Carlao.///GALATASARAY: Muslera, Eboue, Semih Kaya, Nounkeu, Riera, Hamit Alt覺ntop, Selcuk Inan, Felipe Melo, Emre Colak, Elmander, Burak Y覺lmaz...Subs: Ufuk Ceylan, Cris, Hakan Balta, Ayd覺n Y覺lmaz, Kurtulu, Amrabat, Umut Bulut.
    • 18:40 Fourth-placed Braga cannot qualify for the Europa League, with just three points from five games. Braga coach Jose Peseiro insists that his side nonetheless need to get a result from the final game against Galatasaray. "This game is important in every sense, financial and sporting," he said. "Since we have failed in our objectives in the Champions League, we have to be good tomorrow. We have to win and show we have the class to be in this competition".
    • 18:35 Galatasaray are second in Group H on seven points, ahead of CFR 1907 Cluj on the head-to-head record. The Turkish side will automatically qualify with a win in Portugal or if they match Cluj's result at Manchester United.
