    • 90+2 Both teams are looking to pump long balls into the box in an effort to create a last-ditch opening.
    • 90+1 It's still end-to-end stuff as the seconds tick away at El Molinon.
    • 89' The fourth official indicates there will be three minutes of added time.
    • 88' It looks like we are heading for a draw now, but it is still very open and anything could happen in the final two minutes.

    • 74' Pennant's game is over as the former Liverpool wide-man is replaced by Franck Songo'o.
    • 72' Gregory draws a good save from Carrizo with a header from close-range, but he really should have done better.
    • 71' This is real end-to-end stuff now as both sides are going in search of the winner.
    • 69' Babic has a chance to head Zaragoza in front but his effort is off-target.
