    • 90' FT Club Brugge 2-2 Newcastle. It finishes all square at the Jan Breydelstadion as Newcastle remain top of Group D. The Magpies will feel they could have won it, but Alan Pardew's side are edging towards the knockout stages.
    • 90' Donk clears, but Obertan forces another one. Late Magpies pressure.
    • 89' Ameobi forces a Newcastle corner late on. Cabaye to take...
    • 87' Jorgensen almost scores the winner! A corner from the right isn't dealt with by Newcastle - and Jorgensen fires the loose ball narrowly over. He should score.
    • 86' Cabaye is booked for a late tackle on substitute Lagrou - and the pair square up.
    • 84' Big appeal for a Club Brugge penalty as Bacca goes down in the box. He was tugged slightly by Steven Taylor - and the home fans are incensed by that.
    • 82' Newcastle sub: Amalfitano on, Sammy Ameobi off
    • 80' Club Brugge sub: Lagrou on, Odjidja-Ofoe off
    • 78' Tchite cuts in from the left and fires a right-footed effort at goal - but Taylor is there to block. Club Brugge finding space against a wasteful Newcastle.
    • 76' Club Brugge ending this game the stromger, and Newcastle are struggling to do anything about it.
    • 75' Odjidja-Ofoe goes for goal from 25 yards, but Krul pulls off an excellent one-handed save low to his left! Newcastle nearly undone there.
    • 73' Cabaye hits the bar! Moments after coming on Cabaye swings a free-kick into the box, it sails over everyone's heads and crashes back off the bar. Did he mean it? I think it was a cross myself.
    • 71' Newcastle sub: Cabaye on, Bigirimana off
    • 70' Hoefkens is booked for a cynical challenge on Sammy Ameobi.
    • 68' Newcastle have just gone off the boil a little. No longer as dominant as in the first half.
    • 66' Will Club Brugge be made to rue these misses?
    • 65' Lestienne bursts down the right with pace and bends a cross in to Bacca - but the striker heads over.
    • 63' Tiote swings a dangerous cross in from the right and Ameobi, desperately trying to reach it, can't quite do so. Both teams looking like they can win this, though.
    • 61' Crucial save by Krul! A Club Brugge long throw into the box is flicked on to Bacca, who stabs the ball at goal from close-range but great reactions by Krul, who turns the ball around the post.
    • 59' Newcastle sub: S Taylor on, Williamson off.
    • 57' Club Brugge hit Newcastle on the break, but Odjidja-Ofoe takes a poor first touch on the edge of the box and his eventual shot is blocked. Wasteful.
    • 55' Newcastle continuing to push. Coloccini heads down to Ameobi, who is denied by a last minute block.
    • 54' Marveaux again goes to ground looking for a penalty. Says he was grabbed as he tried to reach Shola Ameobi's cross. He wasn't.
    • 52' Jorgacevic stands up well to Shola Ameobi's effort from the edge of the box. Newcastle still looking the more likely to add a third here.
    • 50' Newcastle survive some Club Brugge pressure. Back-to-back corners for the Belgian side.
    • 49' Newcastle chance as Coloccini pops up on the left wing and picks out Shola Ameobi, who leaps well but sends a weak header at goal.
    • 48' Tavernier is fouled by Almeback, who goes straight into the book.
    • 47' The substitute is involved straight away as he latches onto a through ball - but his heavy touch takes it straight into Krul's arms.
    • 46' Club Brugge sub: Tchite on, Trickovski off
    • 46' SECOND HALF. Newcastle get us back underway.
    • HT Club Brugge 2-2 Newcastle. The Magpies fight back to level things before the break. Alan Pardew's side have been the better of the two teams - can they prove that with the winner in the second half?
    • 45' Newcastle have turned the game on its head with two goals in three minutes.
    • 44' The brothers combine as Sammy Ameobi drives infield from the left and slips in Shola with the through ball - and he pokes it home via a big deflection off the goalkeeper Jorgacevic.
    • 43' GOAL! Club Brugge 2-2 Newcastle (S Ameobi)
    • 42' You have to say Newcastle deserve it.
    • 41' Newcastle have a goal back - and what a goal it was! Hogli heads a Newcastle cross to the edge of the box and Anita sends a dipping volley over the despairing dive of Jorgacevic and in to the net. 2-1.
    • 40' GOAL! Club Brugge 2-1 Newcastle (Anita)
    • 38' Tavernier looks to release Sammy Ameobi with a ball out to the left, but it just skids off the surface and out of play for a goal kick.
    • 37' The game has just gone slightly flat in the last few minutes. Newcastle perhaps need half time to regroup.
    • 35' Tiote in the book for a silly foul on Trickovski. He's now suspended for Newcastle's next match
    • 33' At the other end, Shola Ameobi turns his man well and fires a low cross across goal. Newcastle threatening to pull one back here.
    • 32' The referee gets in the way of a Newcastle pass and Club Brugge take advantage with a quick attack down Newcastle's right side, but Bacca's cross to Trickovski is slightly too deep.
    • 30' Newcastle maintaining the pressure on Club Brugge here. But the home side have already shown tonight that they can trouble the Magpies on the break.
    • 29' Sammy Ameobi crosses from the right to his brother Shola, whose header at the far pos5t is deflected out for a corner.
    • 28' Jorgensen, scorer of the second goal, is caught late by Tiote - and he's receiving treatment. The ref tells Tiote to cool it.
    • 26' Anita crosses to Shola Ameobi, who is penalised for handball in the Brugge box.
    • 25' A comical air kick by Marveaux, that. Will he ever score for Newcastle?
    • 24' What a chance for Newcastle! Obertan gets to the byline and drills a low cross in from the left to Marveaux who, eight yards from goal, completely misses the ball.
    • 23' Alan Pardew, arms folded at the edge of his technical area, looks somewhat concerned.
    • 22' Club Brugge having some fun out there now, as Bacca drives in from the left and tries to catch out Krul with an ambitious effort with the outside of his right foot. Krul saves.
    • 21' Marveaux's dangerous free-kick causes some indecision in the home defence, but Brugge eventually hack it away after it pings around their box.
    • 20' How will Newcastle respond now?
    • 19' Newcastle in crisis as Krul is somehow beaten by a tame shot from 20 yards. The shot was hit more in hope than expectation, but somehow bobbles beyond Krul, who was slow to get across. Bizarre goal. 2-0.
    • 18' GOAL! Club Brugge 2-0 Newcastle (Jorgensen)
    • 16' Newcastle are certainly capable of breaching the home defence, which looks very frail at times.
    • 15' Newcastle are behind for the first time in the group stage of this year's Europa League. How will they respond?
    • 14' The home side lead through a classy finish by Trickovski, who takes down a high ball on the edge of the box. The excellent first touch bamboozles Coloccini, who can't stop Trickovski's low finish past Krul. 1-0
    • 13' GOAL! Club Brugge 1-0 Newcastle (Trickovski)
    • 12' Huge chance for Obertan! The Frenchman is played clean through, but his shot is too close to Jorgacevic, who makes the save. Obertan has to score there.
    • 11' Marveaux's free-kick is cleared and Club Brugge mount a blistering counter attack. Ball is played wide to Trickovski, whose cross is only half-cleared to Donk - who hammers it wide from 20 yards.
    • 9' Krul is too casual as his clearance is charged down by the lively Bacca. With Krul out of position, Bacca tries to cut the ball back to the waiting man - but Coloccini gets back to intercept.
    • 8' @Milonewton on Twitter: "Can see a Toon victory, with both Ameobi's getting on the score sheet, along with a Coloccini header from a corner to pay back his red" Tweet me here
    • 7' Trickovski drives forward, but this time Tavernier deals with him easily. Newcastle being forced to do their share of defensive work here.
    • 6' Bacca causing problems again. He tries to shift the ball onto his right foot as he drives into the box but Coloccini, then Anita, combine to deny him.
    • 5' A very open start in Belgium. Both sides with chances already.
    • 4' Newcastle concede possession easily and Bacca drives at goal, but slices his shot wide from 20 yards.
    • 3' Obertan ghosts infield from the left and a space opens for him to shoot - but he drags his effort wide. Big early chance for Newcastle.
    • 2' Much of the play in Club Brugge's half as Newcastle start confidently.
    • 1' KICK OFF. Club Brugge get us underway.
    • 17.55 The players have emerged from the tunnel and we're about to go in Belgium. Who's going to win this one? Who do you fancy to score? Tweet me your predictions here
    • 17.50 Newcastle coach Alan Pardew: “It’s an opportunity to get the qualification sorted, and that’s what we want to do. But it’s easier said than done because we’re all aware of Brugge’s qualities after the first game and we’re carrying three more big injuries after the trip to Liverpool at the weekend. The squad is really being stretched at the moment, and there’s no doubt that events at Anfield at the weekend have hurt us."
    • 17.45 Club Brugge coach Philippe Clement: “I do not believe there were saboteurs who wanted Georges Leekens out of the club. However, there were groups in the squad who were like islands. The commitment of some of those players on the islands was limited. We must now get back to playing as a unit again.”
    • 17.40 Club Brugge have one long-term absentee, with Victor Vasquez not expected back from his collarbone injury until the end of the year, but caretaker boss Philippe Clement - overseeing his first game following the recent sacking of Georges Leekens - has just 18 fit first-team players at his disposal with Jesper Jorgensen and Vadis Odjidja the only available midfielders. Macedonian forward Ivan Trickovski and Israeli international Lior Refaelov failed fitness tests this week.
    • 17.35 Fabricio Coloccini and Cheick Tiote, both serving domestic bans for their red cards against Liverpool and Sunderland, start in an experimental side named by boss Alan Pardew. Marveaux, Bigirimana, Obertan all start as Ba and Ben Arfa are rested.
    • 17.30 The big Newcastle team news is also a little bit of history as Shola and Sammy Ameobi start, becoming the first brothers to start a game for Newcastle in 60 years.
    • 17.25 CLUB BRUGGE: Jorgacevic, Hogli, Almeback, Hoefkens, Donk, Jordi, Jorgensen, Odjidja, Lestienne, Trickovski, Bacca. Subs: Kujovic, Tchite, Vleminckx, Buysse, Engels, Verstraete, Lagrou /// NEWCASTLE: Krul, Anita, Williamson, Coloccini, Tavernier, Tiote, Sammy Ameobi, Marveaux, Bigirimana, Obertan, Shola Ameobi.
