    Live Commentary

    93mins

    Thanks for joining us folks and to continue the conversation, you can contact me

    93mins

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

    92mins

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

    91mins

    Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.

    90mins

    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.

    89mins

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

    89mins

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

    88mins

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

    86mins

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

    82mins

    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.

    78mins

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

    77mins

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

    73mins

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

    71mins

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

    70mins

    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.

    63mins

    An unusually poor delivery from the bearded Italian maestro.

    63mins

    Free-kick from Juve, Pirlo to take it.

    62mins

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

    61mins

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

    60mins

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

    57mins

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

    57mins

    Corner now for the Hoops, Mulgrew to deliver.

    55mins

    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!

    53mins

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

    53mins

    Wasted chance as the ball not put in the box.

    52mins

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

    51mins

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

    50mins

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

    46mins

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

    45mins

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

    45mins

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

    45mins

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

    45mins

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

    42mins

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

    42mins

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

    39mins

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

    36mins

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

    31mins

    Ledley pulls back Vidal to concede a free-kick.

    31mins

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

    29mins

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

    28mins

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

    27mins

    Incredible save from Buffon!

    26mins

    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.

    25mins

    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.

    22mins

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

    18mins

    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.

    17mins

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

    15mins

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

    13mins

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

    13mins

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

    12mins

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

    10mins

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

    9mins

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

    8mins

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

    4mins

    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.

    2mins

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

    1mins

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