93:00
 

Quagliarela with an acrobatic effort, but he was offside anyway.

92:00
 

Lassad the latest Celtic player to have a go. Difficult to describe just how far over that went.

91:00
 

Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.

90:00
 

Kayal strikes one and Buffon spilled it but there were no Hoops players following up as Matri did for Juve for the opening goal this evening.

89:00
 

Lassad receives the ball on the edge of the box, and floats the ball out of play. Bemused by that one.

89:00
 

Forrest has a bash from distance. Never really troubling Buffon with that one though.

88:00
 

Celtic still pushing for that elusive goal. Juve looking for a fifth straight clean sheet.

86:00
 

The Hoops will come back down to earth this weekend when they visit Ross County. Juventus host Catania in Serie A.

82:00
 

Samaras smashes in a shot from the edge of the box but it was always rising. He should have got that one on target - of all the Celtic players is probably most deserving of a goal for his performance.

78:00
 

Isla offside for Juve, this game really fading away to nothing now.

77:00
 

Giaccherini attempts to lift the ball over Mulgrew but the Celtic man read the situation and came away with the ball.

73:00
 

Giaccherini played in but Forster is out quickly to claim the ball at his feet.

71:00
 

On the pitch, Commons pounces on a loose ball but his shot is blocked by Barzagli.

70:00
 

The beers still flowing in the Celtic end and the Hoops fans amazingly still look like they are having a ball despite their Champions League campaign coming to an end this evening.

63:00
 

An unusually poor delivery from the bearded Italian maestro.

63:00
 

Free-kick from Juve, Pirlo to take it.

62:00
 

Celtic fans making plenty of noise in the away end - cracking support from the Scots.

61:00
 

Ambrose with a tasty stepover, followed by a huge hoof forward. Rubbish.

60:00
 

Ledley gets to the byline but his pull-back is steered away by Barzagli, with Hopper loitering in close proximity.

57:00
 

Ambrose rises but his header goes into the ground and bounces up over the bar.

57:00
 

Corner now for the Hoops, Mulgrew to deliver.

55:00
 

Wonderful touch from Samaras to pluck the ball with his high boot out of the air. Nani could probably learn a thing or to from the Greek striker!

53:00
 

Wilson again makes a last-ditch interception to deny Quagliarella, who was bearing down just left of centre in the penalty area.

53:00
 

Wasted chance as the ball not put in the box.

52:00
 

Samaras tries to steamroller his way through the Juve midfield but is dispossessed. But Joe Ledley subsequently fouled and Celtic have a free-kick.

51:00
 

Ambrose goes to right-back and Mulgrew to drop into centre-back by the looks of it.

50:00
 

Wilson does well to intercept as Peluso looked to find Matri.

46:00
 

Padoin crosses from the right but Celtic clear and advance forward.

45:00
 

Bad memories for Mr Ambrose from the first leg. He had a nightmare evening.

45:00
 

A heartwarming football moment here = courtesy of @101greatgoals - as

45:00
 

Corner for Celtic, surely the last action of this first half.

45:00
 

Izaguirre sends one in towards Kayal, but the Israeli is penalised for climbing over Barzagli.

42:00
 

But he takes a touch and the ball finds its way to Buffon. Hooper probably should have had a swing at that one.

42:00
 

The ball about to drop for a Hooper volley...

39:00
 

Wanyama holding his own as an auxiliary centre-back thus far - certainly looking more solid than Efe Ambrose did in the first leg!

36:00
 

Pirlo delivers a free-kick, but Celtic stand firm this time.

31:00
 

Ledley pulls back Vidal to concede a free-kick.

31:00
 

Pogba with a wonderful floated ball towards Matri, but the man who scored the opener in both legs had just strayed offside.

29:00
 

Chance for Vidal, who curls one towards goal from about 25 yards out. But it dips just over.

28:00
 

Celtic of course need to win 4-1 now on the night to progress to the quarter-finals. Seems more than a tad unlikely.

27:00
 

Incredible save from Buffon!

26:00
 

Looking at the replay of the goal, Forster perhaps should have been better to push the ball clear. Though I think the Celtic defence were just too slow off the mark.

25:00
 

Heartbreaking for Celtic, who have certainly been the best time so far. But Juve were ruthless, a good quality for a team seeking Champions League glory.

22:00
 

Quagliarella emerges into some space but his attempted through ball is woeful.

18:00
 

Commons swings in the free-kick but Juve again clear their lines. The ball put in another couple of times but the Bianconeri standing firm.

17:00
 

Pirlo beginning to see a little more of the ball, which is bad news for Celtic.

15:00
 

Quagliarella tries a hopeful effort from about 35 yards out. He spotted Forster off his line but it bounces tamely wide.

13:00
 

And just as I type that Matthews gets into space on the right and whips in a cross. Headed clear though.

13:00
 

Celtic getting the most joy down the left at the moment.

12:00
 

Delightful swivel from Pogba opens up some space inside the box but Forster is out to smother the loose ball.

10:00
 

Hooper was lurking as a header back towards Buffon nearly fell into his path. The Juve keeper claims though.

9:00
 

The ball breaks to Kayal on the edge of the box but his shot is blocked out.

8:00
 

Joe Ledley and Mulgrew combine down the left but the ball gets beyond the former and Juve can breathe easy.

4:00
 

Saying that, the ref in the first leg at Parkhead copped plenty of criticism for his handling of the off-the-ball wrestling at set pieces.

2:00
 

Kayal and Matthews combine but the ball finds its way through to Buffon, who is playing in his 67th Champions League game.

1:00
 

The ball has twice been fired up to Samaras in the early stages - as good a tactic as any for the Hoops.
