Agg (3-1)
JUV
LYN
90+2'
And that's our lot! Juventus progress 3-1 on aggregate after winning 2-1 on the night. They're into the Europa League semi-finals!
90+1'
One added minute signalled.
90'
Llorente ruins Juventus' attempted entry for team goal of the tournament with an over-hit pass.
89'
Marchisio commits a silly foul. He could go here but the referee, aware of the situation, is lenient.
88'
Giovinco involved again, this time winning a foul just inside the Lyon half. Juve are almost there.
Lyon Yellow card

Juventus

Lyon

87'
Giovinco flicks the ball into the air and lashes a volley at goal... Just over.
86'
New man Danic realises he's about to lose the ball and falls to the floor. The referee is unmoved.
85'
Lyon have the ball and five minutes (plus injury time) to find two goals.
84'
 
Umtiti shoves Giovinco into the 'UEFA Europa League' barrier and then demands the Juve player gets to his feet. Erm... You've ended him, pal. Yellow card.

83'
Perhaps this is the French sides chance... They've forced a corner.
82'
Lyon, to their credit, are giving this a real go. But they're yet to fashion a clear-cut chance in this half.
81'
Henri Bedimo bombs down the left wing before sending a cross out of play. Wasted effort.
Juventus Yellow card

Juventus

Lyon

80'
 
Second man into the book: Mr Marchisio. Pretty harsh.
79'
Lopes saunters off his line and gets nowhere near a Juventus free-kick. It comes to Martin Caceres... Blocked!
78'
And, after that nonsense, we're back playing football.
Juventus Substitution
77'
 
It's a never-ending stream of substitutions. More clapping. Tevez salutes the supporters before slapping the hands of his replacement, Sebastian Giovinco.
76'
 
Malbranque is next to be hauled off. Gael Danic is on.
Lyon Substitution
Juventus Substitution
75'
 
The Juventus support rise as one to salute the tireless work of Vidal. Paul Pogba joins the action.
74'
The home fans, after a quiet 30 minute period, are in fine voice now. Their team is doing them proud. Can they march on and win the double?
73'
Tevez utilises his low centre of gravity to create havoc in the Lyon penalty area. This one has more goals in it.
72'
So then, Lyon. What sort of response can you muster?
71'
 
Looks like Clinton N'Jie has replaced Jimmy Briand too.

Lacazette departs to whistles. Bafetimbi Gomis comes on.

That will probably be that.
Juventus Goal

Other Body Part - Bottom Right

68'
 
GOAL! Juventus 2-1 Lyon (3-1 on agg). Marchisio crashes a shot against Samuel Umtiti, who can only watch as the ball changes direction and finds the bottom corner.
67'
It's Mvuemba... Over the wall... Buffon anticipates and beats it clear. Similar effort to Pirlo's in the first-half.
66'
Lacazette rides a couple of challenges before being upended by Chiellini. Free-kick to Lyon in a very appealing position.
65'
 
Llorente's first act... Be caught offside.
64'
Class header from Tevez. So unlucky.
63'
 
DISALLOWED GOAL! Tevez flicks a header into the top corner and wheels away in delight... No goal! The offside flag denies him.
62'
 
Vucinic comes off to warm applause. Fernando Llorente takes his place.
61'
Asamoah is bundled to the turf by Abenzoar. Looks like there's a bit of action on the Juve bench...
Juventus Substitution
60'
Lacazette unleashes the worst shot in Europea League history. Think it ballooned out for a throw.
59'
Pirlo rolls his foot along the ball, tricks his opponent and is brought down. Apparently not. Referee thinks it was a fair challenge. Lyon come forward... Juventus survive.
58'
Steed Malbranque fans: aside from an early effort at goal, your man has been quiet so far. As have most of the Lyon crew.
57'
Vidal does superbly to control a difficult ball with his chest but he's put under just enough pressure to force a mistake.
56'
Tevez swings his right arm in disgust after being penalised for a shoulder-to-shoulder. Much more intensity to this second period.
55'
Asamoah's next act is to have a crack from the edge of the area. Lopes saves and holds.
54'
Asamoah weaves his way down the left before firing a low cross across the penalty area... The faintest touch takes it off the foot of Tevez. Great play.
53'
 
Pirlo plays a delightful dink over the Lyon backline but the flag shoots up to deny Marchisio.
52'
The crowd get a little excited when Tevez works an opening but the Argentine's touch is too heavy.
51'
Isla's cross catches the heels of an opponent, kicks up into the air and is claimed by the grateful gloves of Lopes.
50'
Alexandre Lacazette tries to swing a cross in from the left but Martin Caceres halts his plans.
49'
Vucinic wins the ball deep in Lyon territory, charges down the right wing and almost picks out Tevez. Lyon escape.
48'
 
Bonucci goes into the book for a bad foul.
47'
Tevez is a stud-length away from robbing Bakary Kone of possession.
Juventus Yellow card

46'
Half number two is up and running.
45+1'
Half-time. 1-1 on the night, but Juventus hold a 2-1 aggregate lead.
45'
Tevez goes down inside the penalty area... No foul.
44'
Marchisio twists, turns and wriggles on the edge of the Lyon box. Can he get a shot away? Not quite.
43'
Lyon refuse to put Buffon under any pressure whatsoever. The stopper, obviously feeling guilty that people have paid to watch this match, eventually passes to a team-mate.
42'
Lopes picks up the ball and punts it straight to Juventus shirt. Pointless.
41'
Tevez finds Isla but the Chile international can't bring the ball under his spell when well placed.
40'
Into the final five minutes. It's been a bit rubbish since that Lyon goal.
39'
Pirlo's quarter-back-esque pass flies out of play.
38'
The home fans getting increasingly edgy…
37'
Vucinic hits the deck...again. No free-kick...again.
36'
Juventus string a couple of passes together but, just as it looks like they would mount a meaningful attack, they concede possession.
35'
Asamoah is hauled to the turf. No free-kick, incredibly.
34'
Lopes leaps (Superman-style) to claim a cross from the right. Great to see the Portuguese stopper enjoying himself out there.
33'
Vucinic yells at the referee for awarding a throw rather than a free-kick.
32'
Abenzoar sprints 20 yards to keep a stray crossfield pass on the pitch. Great stuff.
31'
Asamoah... Tevez... Tackled.
30'
The Juventus Stadium rise as one to voice their discontent at a poor Vidal pass. Fortunately for the midfielder, Pirlo steps in to avert the danger.
29'
More slack play from the hosts and Lyon flood forward in numbers. It breaks to Arnold Mvuemba but his fierce shot is beaten away by Buffon.
28'
Vucinic looks longingly at his team-mates as another Juventus attack comes to nothing.
27'
Buffon slams his sizable goalie gloves together in an attempt to rouse his team-mates. They’ve gone off the boil since Lyon’s equaliser.
26'
Asamoah swings his leg, scuffs the ball and watches his shot trickle all of five yards.
25'
Small stoppage as a Lyon defender - rumoured to be Henri Bedimo - receives treatment.
24'
Tevez involved again... This time the forward is sent sprawling to the turf on the edge of the penalty area. Pirlo round two? Nope, the referee waves play on.
23'
Hmmm. Tevez extends his neck towards the ball, narrowly avoids a kick to the face and tries to worm through a couple of challenges. All for nothing – Lyon quickly win it back.
22'
The fans in the Juventus Stadium are in great spirits tonight. Really good atmosphere.
21'
Pirlo drops into the sweeper position to spark another attack. Mirko Vucinic and Claudio Marchisio fail to communicate and the ball rolls harmlessly out of play.
20'
Reminder: Lyon will be in a winning position if they score again (due to the away goals rule).
19'
Gianluigi Buffon will feel he could have done better with that. The Italian stopper got a hand to it, but could only help it into the goal.
18'
 
GOAL! Juventus 1-1 Lyon (2-1 on agg). Jimmy Briand's header finds the net! Is the comeback on?
Lyon Goal

Header - Bottom Right

17'
Oh dear. Loic Abenzoar gets his feet in a muddle and fails to control a bouncing ball.
16'
Lyon are happy to let Vidal roam with the ball but have started putting Pirlo under pressure. Interesting.
15'
It all comes to an end when Kwadwo Asamoah buys a cheap free-kick.
14'
Much better from Lyon. They set up camp in the Juve half and start knocking it around with zip.
13'
Wow. Lyon win it back and charge towards the opposition goal. It bounces around in the penalty area... Did that strike a hand? The referee says no.
12'
Update 2: Juventus still have the ball.
11'
Update: Juventus have the ball.
10'
It's so easy for Juventus in the early stages. It looks like Lyon are defending a lead.
9'
Arturo Vidal booms the ball out of play after the hosts needlessly gifted possession to Lyon.
8'
Bonucci, fresh from his earlier knock, crashes a shot into the boot of an opponent.
7'
All Juventus in the early stages. Lyon have barely had a touch in the opposition half.
6'
Aggregate update: Juventus lead 2-0!
5'
 
GOAL! Juventus 1-0 Lyon. Andrea Pirlo takes a free-kick... Into the corner of the net! Was there any doubt? The man is a set-piece beast.
Juventus Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Left

Carlos Tevez cuts inside and crashes a shot narrowly over the crossbar. Anthony Lopes was beaten.

Bad news, home fans: Leonardo Bonucci is limping after just 128 seconds.

Good news, home fans: your side almost scored immediately after good play down the right flank.

And, at the rather odd time of 20:05, we're underway!

Welcome to LIVE coverage of Juventus v Lyon in the Europa League. The Italian champions are in pole position to reach the last four after winning 1-0 in France last week.
20:00
Almost time to get cracking. The players make their way out onto the pitch, mascots in tow, as the Juventus Stadium erupts. Can Lyon do it or will Juve prove too strong? We’re about to find out..
19:55
Both of these sides will be hoping to return to the latter stages of Europe’s premier competition next season (although that looks increasingly unlikely for Lyon). Here we take a glance at the Champions League semi-finals – featuring surprise outfit Atletico Madrid.
Atletico Madrid the ones to avoid in the semi-final draw

A reminder of how the first-leg unfolded...
Europa League - Juventus leave it late to beat Lyon

Juventus's Leonardo Bonucci scored in the 85th minute to snatch a 1-0 win over Lyon in their Europa League quarter-final.

19:45
Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons: "We have to believe we can do it. We need to score and then see what happens afterwards. Anything is possible in football and Lyon have already turned around worse situations in the past."
19:40
The pre-match thoughts of Antonio Conte: "This tie is far from over. Lyon have great players in attack. I hope to see a packed Juventus Stadium and that our fans make their voices heard to push the team forward. We need the crowd to rise to the big occasion. We want to be in the semi-final. It would be great to reach the last four, for Italian football as well as for Juve."
19:35
It’s difficult to see how Lyon will hurt Juve, especially with Yoann Gourcuff and Clement Grenier absent. But at least fans (mainly those of a Fulham, Spurs or Sunderland persuasion) will be delighted to hear that Steed Malbranque starts.
19:30
Juventus make three changes from Monday's 2-0 home win over Livorno as Isla, Vidal and Vucinic come in for Lichtsteiner, Pogba and Llorente.
19:25
TEAMS - Juventus: Buffon, Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini, Isla, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah, Tevez, Vucinic... Subs: Storari, Lichtsteiner, Ogbonna, Pogba, Osvaldo, Llorente, Giovinco /// Lyon: A.Lopes, Tolisso, B.Kone, Umtiti, Bedimo, Gonalons, Ferri, Malbranque, Mvuemba, Lacazette, Briand... Subs: Vercoutre, Zeffane, Bisevac, N'Jie, Fekir, Danic, Gomis.
