    • Anzhi Makhachkala
    • - And that's it all over here at St. James' Park as Newcastle secure passage to the quarter finals of the Europa League. From us here at Eurosport, I'm @BenMcAleer1 and thanks for joining us. The full match report will be on the site shortly.
    • 90+4 That was the last touch of the encounter as the referee blows for full time following Cisse's dramatic last gasp winner to reach the quarter final in Europe for the first time in eight years.
    • 90+4 GOAL! Last attack of the encounter and it’s Cisse to head past Gabulov from a Marveaux cross.
    • 90+3 Anzhi knock the ball around the Newcastle box well, but the hosts come away with possession and counter the Russian side.
    • 90+2 Newcastle win a corner and Marveaux delivers. However, his cross is too close to Gabulov, who punches clear, and Anzhi hoof the ball away.
    • 90+1 There will be three minutes of added time here at St. James' Park.
    • 90' Miscommunication in the Newcastle defence and Shatov can put a low cross into the box, but his pass is behind Boussoufa and the hosts can clear.
    • 89' Boussoufa clears the wall and strikes the bar. Almost a late winner for the 10 men of Anzhi.
    • 88' Anzhi win a free kick 25 yards out. A chance for the visitors to nick a goal here.
    • 87' Elliot knocks to the back post for Taylor, but the Newcastle defender is penalised for leaning with his elbow.
    • 86' Zhirkov picks up a booking for a high boot on Marveaux around the halfway line.
    • 85' Shatov wins possession and threads into Boussoufa, but his cross is cut out and Newcastle clear.
    • 84' Newcastle win their first corner of the night following some poor Anzhi defending. Marveaux delivers and the ball finds its way back to Santon, who sees his effort blocked from the edge of the box.
    • 83' Marveaux whips the ball into the back post, but it’s too close to Gabulov who punches clear.
    • 82' Eto’o audaciously goes for goal from the tightest of angles after some poor Newcastle defending, but it’s a good height for Elliot who pushes the ball away from danger.
    • 81' Tiote is again urged to shoot from distance. His effort is blocked and bounces towards Campbell, but the ball doesn’t quite set for the youngster to fire goalbound.
    • 79' Cisse threads an outside of the boot pass to Sissoko on the left, but despite the Frenchman winning the ball back having been robbed of possession, the visitors hold firm and clear.
    • 78' Santon does well to hurdle an Anzhi challenge and crosses to the near post, but only picks out Ewerton to head clear.
    • 77' Tiote lofts the ball over the Anzhi defence looking for Cisse, but again the visitors hold firm and can clear.
    • 76' Tiote comes close from distance as he powers a left footed drive just over the Anzhi bar from 25 yards out.
    • 75' Last 15 minutes here at St. James’ Park where, as things stand, we’re heading to extra time.
    • 74' Anzhi substitution as Diarra is replaced by Shatov while Carlos receives treatment for a knock.
    • 73' Haidara picks up the ball on the left flank. The Newcastle man cuts onto his right foot on the edge of the Anzhi 18 yard box, only to see his effort blocked and the visitors can clear.
    • 72' The Newcastle crowd aren’t happy with the antics of Yeshchenko who looks to have dived deep in opposition territory.
    • 71 Second substitution for Newcastle as Anita is replaced by Campbell for only his third senior appearance.
    • 70' Zhirkov closes down Marveaux well, but mishits his clearance and it’s a Newcastle throw in.
    • 69' Cisse flicks a Marveaux cross goalbound and forces a good save from Gabulov, but the flag was raised against the Newcastle striker for offiside.
    • 68' Anzhi, to their credit, defending well and in numbers. Hiddink evidently has them well drilled tactically.
    • 67' Newcastle are patiently waiting for the moment to strike, but Gutierrez’s pass to Cisse is easily cut out and Anzhi can clear again.
    • 66' Santon pushes high up the pitch and gets his cross in despite faced square on by Zhirkov. The youngsters cross, however, is too close to Gabulov who can gather comfortably.
    • 65' Some good defending from Ewerton and Zhirkov results in a Newcastle throw in deep in Anzhi territory.
    • 64' A nice turn of pace from Marveaux who drifts in onto his left foot again, only to see his effort blocked and Gabulov can gather with ease.
    • 62' If Newcastle can pick up a win here, it'll be their first quarter final appearance in Europe since 2005.
    • 61' Some good closing down from Anita, but Yeshchenko manages to win a throw in off the Newcastle man in the Anzhi half.
    • 60' Despite being down to 10 men, Anzhi are beginning to press forward.
    • 58 Eto'o is able to bring the ball down easily as Taylor and Yanga-Mbiwa fail to close him down. However, the Anzhi strikers' effort is high and wide, much to the delight of the home crowd.
    • 57' Anita lofts a ball over to Cisse who looks to bring the ball down, but Carlos comes across to clear the danger for Anzhi.
    • 56' The referee is straight into his pocket again as Anita picks up a booking for a dangerous foul on Zhirkov.
    • 55' That's made Anzhi's night that bit harder as Marveaux delivers to the back post from the resulting free kick, but the visitors can clear.
    • 54' Carcela-Gonzalez receives his marching orders for a second yellow following a foul on Haidara.
    • 53' Newcastle have managed to score just one goal in their last four European games combined. They look like they'll need top goalscorer Ameobi to break the deadlock here.
    • 52' Marveaux puts the ball into the 18 yard box for Cisse. His header fails to test Gabulov but instead finds Taylor, who can't generate any power behind his effort from six yards out and the Anzhi goalkeeper can claim the ball with ease.
    • 51' The hosts look more up for the second half. They've been all over Anzhi following the restart and some composure from Sissoko could well have seen them take the advantage already this half.
    • 50' Tiote picks out Marveaux on the right flank. The Newcastle man crosses for Sissoko unmarked in the 18 yard box, who misses the ball completely and Anzhi clear.
    • 49' Newcastle are unbeaten in 21 European games on home soil (excluding qualifiers), winning 17 and drawing four. Can they extend that to 22 tonight?
    • 48' First booking of the evening for Carcela-Gonzalez who hauls back Tiote as the hosts look to counter attack.
    • 47' Newcastle start the second half brightly. Cisse nods back for Sissoko, who takes a wild lash at the ball from the edge of the box and misses the ball. The danger isn’t averted, however, as Santon picks out the Frenchman, who heads over.
    • 46 Newcastle get us underway for the second half here at St. James' Park.
    • 45+1' Anzhi perhaps the better of the two teams, but it's 0-0 here at St. James' Park at half time.
    • 45+1' Just the solitary minute of added time here at St. James' Park.
    • 45' Santon wins a free kick around 40 yards box. A good opportunity to whip a ball to the back post. Marveaux picks out Taylor at the back post, but his header is powered over.
    • 44' Anzhi are rarely pressing the Newcastle defence when they're on the ball and it gives the hosts time to pick out a teammate with minimal ease.
    • 43' Good play from Marveaux on the right flank as he drives forward, but his decision making is poor and Anzhi can clear.
    • 42' Santon picks out Sissoko on the right wing, but the Frenchman's cross is blocked. Good build up play from Newcastle.
    • 41' Shola Ameobi is Newcastle's top scorer in the Europa League this season with three goals. Can he be the man to open the scoring from the bench?
    • 40' Eto’o is played into the middle of the pitch and the Anzhi man has time to turn before he looks to play in Akhmedov, but his pass is over hit and rolls out for a Newcastle goal kick.
    • 39' Marveaux picks out Taylor at the back post. His header goalbound is cleared and falls to Cisse. The striker puts the ball back into the 18 yard box, but Gabulov is unchallenged and collects comfortably.
    • 38' Close for Anzhi but Akhmedov can’t capitalise on some poor defending from Yanga-Mbiwa. His effort to the right of Elliot’s post is fired into the side netting at the near post.
    • 37' Cabaye has been moving gingerly for some time now and the Frenchman is to be replaced by Gutierrez.
    • 36' Tiote picks out Taylor at the back post, only for the official to penalise the Newcastle man for the use of an arm to win his header.
    • 35' Marveaux puts his cross to the back post for Cisse. The striker can't reach the ball however and Anzhi clear.
    • 34' Santon wins his side a free kick in a dangerous position.
    • 33' Haidara pushes down the left well, but sees his cross blocked and Anzhi clear.
    • 31' Cisse looks to capitalise on a hopeful punt up field but sees the long ball cut out well by Carlos.
    • 30' Cabaye gives away a foul around 40 yards out on Carcela-Gonzalez. The Newcastle man, however, believes the winger has dived and doesn’t look happy about the decision.
    • 29' Akhmedov attempts a threaded ball for Eto'o, but Yanga-Mbiwa is on hand to cut out the pass.
    • 28' Taylor on hand again for Newcastle to this time block a Jucilei effort.
    • 27' Newcastle have grown into this encounter, but look suspect at the back. Anzhi have, on a few occasions, come close to exploiting the visitors on the counter.
    • 25' Akhmedov picks out Boussofa on the left flank who is in acres of space. However, as the Anzhi man drives for the 18 yard box and is met by Taylor to defend well and alleviate the pressure.
    • 23' Cabaye is urged to shoot from distance by the crowd. His shot is blocked, but falls for Tiote to smash from 30 yards out, only to see his strike rise over the Anzhi bar.
    • 22' Anzhi midfielder Lassana Diarra once made his full debut for Arsenal against a Newcastle side managed by Sam Allardyce. The Frenchman has looked threatening for the visitors already this evening.
    • 21' Anzhi have a free kick from distance. The ball is whipped into the box for Carlos at the back post, only for his header to drift over the bar.
    • 20' Cabaye’s effort from distance looks to be creeping into the far corner, but Gabulov gets down well to deny the Newcastle midfielder.
    • 19' Taylor with an excellent block after Tiote is robbed by Diarra of possession. The Frenchman's effort is goalbound, but the Newcastle defender does well to deny the Anzhi midfielder again.
    • 18' Newcastle will be buoyed by the fact that Anzhi have struggled on their travels this season, with the Russian side unbeaten at home.
    • 17' Excellent defending by Taylor as he blocks a Diarra header before making a last ditch challenge to deny the Anzhi midfielder.
    • 16' Haidara is played in by Sissoko on the left flank, but the youngsters' cross is easily dealt with by Gabulov.
    • 15' Carcela-Gonzalez cuts onto his left foot from quite some distance, but his effort trickles wide of the near post.
    • 14' The encounter is very evenly poised here at St. James’ Park, with both teams apprehensive to make the first real move after the opening exchanges.
    • 12' Anzhi threaten down the right flank, with Carcela-Gonzalez drifting forward, but Newcastle soak up the pressure well and defend the danger.
    • 11' Neat play from Marveaux as he drops his shoulder on the right flank and launches a left footed drive to the near post, only to see his effort drift wide.
    • 10' This is the furthest Anzhi have ever progressed in Europe, with their only previous experience ending in a first-round defeat to Rangers in 2001-02. Can they net an early opener to give them a chance of progressing to the quarter-finals?
    • 9' Good feet from Marveaux, who is brought down by Zhirkov as he skips past the Russian.
    • 8' Cisse breaks down the right, but his cross is easily gathered by Gabulov.
    • 7' Tiote attempts to pick out Sissoko with a ball to the left, only to slip at the wrong possible moment and the attack breaks down.
    • 6' Diarra wins possession in the middle of the park and drives forward, but puts too much power onto his pass for Eto’o and it’s a Newcastle throw in.
    • 5' Boussoufa can't quite get his head onto a cross and the ball rolls out for a Newcastle goal kick.
    • 4' I say that and Eto'o is played into the 18 yard box, only to drag his effort wide of Elliot's far post.
    • 3' Newcastle United have kept three successive clean sheets in Europe. They last kept more in the 1969/70 Fairs Cup (four). Can they prevent Eto'o from adding his 10th Europa League of the season tonight?
    • 2' Anzhi making the early running this evening as Yanga-Mbiwa is forced to hoof a clearance away for a throw in.
    • 1' And it's Anzhi who get us underway here at a raucous St. James’ Park. Crowd are in good voice for the Europa League last 16 second leg tie.
    • 20.00 Five minutes until we kick off here in Newcastle, you can refresh your memory of the first leg here. Newcastle boost hopes with draw at Anzhi
    • 19.55 Odds for this encounter at St. James’ Park if you fancy a flutter: Newcastle 6/4, Anzhi 2/1, Draw 12/5.
    • 19.50 This is the furthest Newcastle United have progressed in Europe since the 2006/07 season. Glenn Roeder oversaw a last 16 exit at the hands of AZ Alkmaar that evening.
    • 19.45 Pre-match stat attack for those following: Anzhi Makhachkala are the first Russian team to visit St. James’ Park for a European fixture.
    • 19.40 Hiddink continued: “They like to work in the big leagues. I don’t know about my future, because I’m not the youngest any more, though I still feel very energetic and I love to be on the pitch almost every day with the guys. There’s energy left.”
    • 19.35 Guus Hiddink: “I follow the Premier League a lot, of course. I enjoyed very much playing here and overall in the Premier League. I very much liked the attitude of the players I had in my time at Chelsea. I very much liked the atmosphere in the stadiums, the public who come and enjoy and respect the way we are playing. You can work properly here. It’s what every player likes to do and also the managers and coaches.
    • 19.30 Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew: “Our fans have earned the right to get the place as full as we can. The margins are so small against them, we need every advantage. It gives me the luxury of making Anzhi my priority – not Wigan. It’ll be Thursday night. God willing, we’ll get a great win. We are looking no further than Thursday – we’ve got a great opportunity in that competition. We’re in the last 16 in Europe.”
