    Live Commentary

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

    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.
