    • 85' Chadli slips the shot at goal from the edge of the box, but all too easy for Hildebrand in the home goal.

    • 83' Jones slams a shot at goal. Saved by Mihaylov in the visiting goal. Jones needing a spot of treatment for cramp.
    • 82' 37 goals in 37 games now for Schalke. The German side 4-1 up on the night. 4-2 ahead on aggregate. Surely all over now.
    • 81' GOAL! Huntelaar scores his third hat-trick in the Europa League this season. Lovely pass by Jones, and the finish from the Dutch forward was superb.

    • 79' De Jong booked after a late challenge on Jones. Free-kick 25 yards from goal for Schalke.
    • 78' Jones drives forward for the home side. Slams a shot at goal. Just wide of the target. Breathless play by Jones.
    • 77' Farfan plays in Huntelaar 12 yards out, but Mihaylov dives to make a superb stop. Should have been the hat-trick for the Dutch forward.
    • 76' Chadli heads over the bar from inside the area. Plenty of air under that header. No danger to the home goal.
    • 75' Meanwhile, goalscorer Jones is on the deck and in need of a spot of treatment.
    • 74' Rosales and Raul collide, but it is Twente who are given the benefit of the doubt. A free-kick in the home half.
    • 73' Wild scenes of celebration in the stadium. Twente now need another goal otherwise they will be heading out of the competition. Jones's first goal in 18 months. What an important goal it could prove to be.

    • 63' The German fans in full voice with coach Huub Stevens cutting an animated figure on the touchline. Last season's Champions League semi-finalists chasing a spot in this year's Europa League quater-finals.
    • 62' Blistering run by Raul into the visiting area. Was about to pull the trigger, but Twente scramble it clear. Schalke piling on the pressure.

    • 60' All change in this match. Suddenly 2-2 on aggregate. The home side need another goal to progress.

    • 58' PENALTY TO SCHALKE! Janssen handles the volley by Raul. Was a certain penalty. Deliberate handball and that is a booking for the Twente player.

    • 49' Draxler cracks the shot at goal, but blocked by Mihaylov. Really good stop by him to halt the effort.

    • 40' Twente have lost just once in four European away games this season – 1-0 at Fulham in the group stages.

    • 32' The home fans suddenly feeling a lot more content. How costly will that miss by Chadli prove to be?
    • 31' Bengtsson back again to clear the cross from Fuchs, who stormed down the flank with a purposeful run.
    • 30' Bengtsson is brought down by Huntelaar as he tried to rampage up the park from deep.
    • 29' Jones looks for Huntelaar in the box, but Douglas does well to make the clearance. Knocks it over his own bar. The home side suddenly looking dangerous.

    • 25' The game continues with Twente dominating possession. This has been such a mature performance so far from the visitors.
    • 24' Huntelaar is going to be booked for a spot of diving in the area. Poor stuff from the Dutch striker.

    • 21' Bajrami tries to go beyond Fuchs, who is booked for a late challenge.
    • 20' Bayern Munich the only German team left in Europe this season. Doesn't look like Schalke will continue after tonight unless there is a marked improvement from somewhere.
    • 19' Twente looking so comfortable on the ball as Farfan brings down Tiendalli with a late challenge.
    • 18' Mihaylov thumps a goalkick down the park. Schalke fans still singing, but their team not really at the races.

    • 16' Twente blow a golden chance for a second as Chadli lifts the ball over the bar from inside the area. Should have been 2-0.
    • 15' No chance for Hildebrand at that goal. Steve McClaren attempting to cajole his side to grab another goal here.
    • 14' Farfan brings down Tiendalli, who wins the free-kick. All going for Twente at the moment.
    • 13' Schalke now need three goals to win this tie. The problem with failing to net away from home last week is there for all to see.
    • 12' Superb little move with Chadli suppling a lovely pass for his companion to finish. The German fans look a bit stunned after that.
    • 11' GOAL! Janssen passes the ball into the net. Superb finish for the Dutch side, who lead 1-0. 2-0 on aggregate. Long way back for Schalke now.
    • 10' Bajrami brings down Uchida with a late challenge. Free-kick to the home side deep in their half.
    • 9' Jones looking the likeliest figure so far for the home side as he curls a volley inches wide of the target from distance.
    • 8' Game yet to catch fire, but much of that is down to the decent possession play of Twente who are keeping a very tight formation.
    • 7' Jones catches Mihaylov with the late challenge in the air. Free-kick for the visiting team.
    • 6' Jones slams a shot at goal from distance, but Mihaylov dives to tip the shot past a post. Decent strike.
    • 5' Schalke are unbeaten at home in Europe this season. They have collected four wins and a 0-0 draw against AEK Larnaca FC.
    • 4' Steve McClaren's team in no rush to go forwards with this ball. All very methodical at the moment.
    • 3' Papadopoulos is penalised for a late tackle on De Jong. The Dutch team keeping the ball well early on in this contest.
    • 2' Pitch doesn't look in the greatest of conditions. Twente aim to recover from a 3-1 loss to NEC Nijmegen in the Dutch league at the weekend.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one. Twente holding this slender 1-0 lead.
    • 20:00 Almost ready to go in this match as the teams appear.
