FT: Juventus 2 Celtic 0 (Agg: 5-0)

Celtic are by no means disgraced, but they came up against a mighty foe in Juventus who qualify for the Champions League last eight with victory over the Scottish champions. Thanks for your company tonight here in Turin and I'll see you all soon.

FT: Juventus 2 Celtic 0 (Agg: 5-0).

Barzagli heads away another Izaguirre cross, before Forrest collects the ball on the edge of the box, with a woeful Lassad shot fired well over the crossbar.

On this occasion, Buffon spills Kayal's shot, but Bonucci is on hand to sweep up the danger ahead of the oncoming Hooper.

Forrest tests Buffon's hands with a firm effort from range, but such is the wondeful form of the Juve keeper, there was no chance of a spillage at the near post.

Forrest and Ambrose combine, but neither man can get the ball into the box, and for now Celtic are comfortable to patiently press in the final third.

Pogba goes down, with cramp it appears, and play comes to a temporary halt as the Juve midfielder takes a time out.

Matri could have done better against Wilson, with Asamoah on his left available, but the Celtic defender wins out and manages to reclaim the ball.

Samaras' ball into Ledley is cut out by Pogba, and upon Quagliarella being hacked into by Hooper, Juventus win a free-kick.

Samaras should do better as he picks up on the ball on the edge of the box, before firing wildly over the bar. Another chance that the Hoops have failed to convert in Turin tonight.

Good crowding out by Ledley as Quagliarella runs out of room to manoeuvre, with Celtic winning back possesion courtesy of a throw-in.

Izaguirre again launches another hopeful ball into the box, but that man Buffon is reliably there again to snatch the ball from the air.

The offside flag is raised against Isla, after the winger looked to latch on to Barzagli's ball down the right side.

Lassad and Izaguirre look to combine, but Isla and Barzagli are having none of it as they team up to snuff out another Celtic attack.

Asamoah neatly finds Isla down the left, but he can't knock the ball over the top of Ambrose, who retain his position to calmly play back to Forster.

Celtic's effort in the final third continues to know no bounds, but Asamoah tackles Forrest, before the ball rolls out for a Juve goal-kick.

A scrapy period results in a failed Lassad attempt to sneak past Barzagli, and Juve reclaim possession which they enjoy for a spell.

Hooper decides to let rip from the edge of the area, and why not, but his shot drags wide and that just sums up Celtic's fortune in front of goal over these two legs.

A busy shift from Commons comes to an end as Lassad enters the fray.

Juventus' defending continues to beat Celtic's attacking motions, with Samaras sitting deeper befoe delivering into Hooper, with tight marking from Padoin seeing the ball roll out.

Commons looks to find the net, but his powerful effort from 20 yards was always swerving away from goal as it ends up well behind the sticks.

Izaguirre seeks out Samaras in the penalty area, but the striker is penalised for offside as the floats out of play regardless.

Giacherrini gets 20 minutes of action, as Pirlo is rested in Juve's third and final change.

Pogba lifts the ball forward for Matri, but Kayal's touch knocks it on for Forster. One gets the feeling that Juve could well add to their tally here if they continue to impose their dominance on Celtic.

Vidal is taken off, with Isla coming on in his place.

It's a beautiful goal from Juiventus. Pirlo finds Matri in behind Izaguirre, and as Quagliarella arrives, he is fed in by his team-mate to slot home from close range.


Amrbose pushes up, but his ball to Ledley sees him pickpocketed by Pogba as Juve regain possession. As Izaguirre decides to then slide in on Vidal, he picks up a booking.

Pirlo aims to find the top corner with a 25-yard free-kick, but his effort is applied with too much height and it travels some way wide in the end.

Padoin seeks out Vidal down the right, with Mulgrew showing his defensive grit with a firm tackle near the byline to concede a throw-in.

Commons tests the gloves of Buffon with a bouncing effort from range, which results in the Juventus keeper continuing to show steady hands.

Peluso makes way for Juve, with Asamoah the man taking his place.

Celtic win a corner, and Ledley's delivery is met by the bullish Ambrose, who can only head downwards and see the ball bounce over the bar.

Vidal's through ball almost connects with Matri's run, but the outstretched leg of Mulgrew cuts out the attack, before a Samaras header is pounced upon up the other end by Marrone.

A prolonged period of Juve pressure sees Matri and Quagliarella take aim, but interceptions from Wilson and Kayal denies the hosts extending their lead.

Pirlo catches Forrest with a late challenge and Celtic have a free-kick. Kayal fails to release his shot away though and is charged down by Bonucci.

Peluso, who is gaining more and more influence down the left, finds Vidal in the centre, but his ball back out wide is collected by the oncoming Ambrose.

Forrest comes on to take the place of the stricken Matthews.

Matthews has remained down after pulling up chasing Peluso, and it appears it may be the end of the game for the Celtic right-back.

Peluso waltzes past Matthews, who appeared to go down with an injury, before a poor pass into Matri is pounced upon by Ambrose.

A poor error from Mulgrew nearly results in a second Juve goal, but Forster parries Matri's effort much more effectively than he did earlier in the match.

Mulgrew launches the ball upfield, but Bonucci calmly claims under no pressure from a Celtic forward as the hosts continue to impress defensively.

Peluso stretches play by finding Quagliarella, but as Pogba advances ahead of the forward, he finds the offside flag raised.

Celtic change at the break, with Ambrose on for Wanyama.

Similarly to the first leg, Celtic have been admirable going forward, but they have lacked that spark in the final third, which Juve possess in abundance. The miracle is becoming more and more unlikely, but no-one will crush the hope of the Celtic fans in attendance in Turin. Send your second half views to jack.woodfield@bskyb.com or @JWoodfield365

HT: Juventus 1 Celtic 0 (Agg: 4-0).

Buffon palms away Matthews' delivery at the far post and Celtic have a corner moments before half-time.

Izaguirre delivers another accurate ball, but Kayal is penalised for his leap above Padoin and a free-kick is awarded to the hosts.

Forster's gloves are tested once more, with Vidal firing from the edge of the box, but his weak effort is easily collected by the Hoops keeper.

Another Izaguirre results in a half chance for Celtic, but again Hooper fails to sort his feet out and Marrone dives in to smother the ball.

Smooth play from Celtic, with the ball landing at Izaguirre's feet, before his ball in from the left is headed straight down the throat of Buffon by Kayal.

Hooper leaps with Pogba for the loose ball, and a foul is committed by the Celtic striker with Juve winning a free-kick in the centre of the park.

Pogba slides in timely to prevent Commons taking aim, but Celtic do look impressive going forward, it's just the final ball that is letting them down at the moment.

Pirlo delivers another pinpoint pass into Matri, but a loose first touch sees him take the ball away from goal as Wilson ushers clear the danger.

A Pirlo free-kick near the touchline sees Wilson head away, before Pogba reclaims possession as Juve control the ball in midfield.

Another great chance for Celtic! Excellence from Samaras sees his square the ball across the face of goal, with Hooper unable to slide for a tap-in at the far post.

Pirlo's expert ball into Vidal is well controlled, and Ledley falls for his tricks and turn before sliding in to commit the foul.

Mulgrew curls the ball into the penalty box, but it lands in front of Samaras, who fails to adjust his run accordingly to meet the ball at the far post.

Pogba launches the ball forward, but Matri sets off a tad early in behind Wilson and as a result the offside flag is raised.

Juve come close to making it 2-0 on the night, with Izaguirre caught sleeping as Vidal is afforded all sorts of space before he drives the ball over from 20 yards.

Izaguirre's delivery results in a Ledley flick-on, but there are enough Juve bodies to prevent the ball rolling into Hooper's path.

Great chance for Celtic! Hooper fires a shot away, with a top class save from Buffon diverting the ball for a corner.

Samaras knocks Matthews' ball on for Celtic, but Bonucci nips in front of Hooper and makes the interception. The atmosphere is wonderful inside the stadium right now with the Juve fans extremely buoyant.

Quagliarella continues to turn the screws for Juve down the right, before Mulgrew makes a precise tackle to prevent his progress.

Peluso was the architect for the move, before his ball into Quagliarella sees a shot fumbled by Forster, with Matri on hand to put home the rebound. 4-0 on aggregate to Juve.


Quagliarella storms forward through the centre, seeking to play in Matri but he delays the pass, which falls to Forster as a result who had anticipated the move.

Ledley lets rip from 25 yards, and it was a wonderful effort that sails incredibly near to creeping into the top corner. Best chance of the game so far.

Commons plays an overly heavy ball into Hooper, which the striker was never going to meet, but the Hoops are pushing up with confidence and Neil Lennon will be delighted with his side's start.

Commons breaks into the penalty box, but he can't shift his feet into a shooting position. Moments later, Izaguirre delivers, but as Hooper sprints into the six-yard box, Buffon claims confidently.

Yellow card for Peluso after a poor challenge on Matthews.

Vidal feigns a shot, with Izaguirre tracking back from an attacking position to make a sterling tackle on the forward.

Mulgrew aims to find Hooper with a pinpoint pass, but he is marshalled by Bonucci and Juve break with pace, as Matthews slides in on Quagliarella to concede a corner.

Matri finds Quagliarella, who ambitiously goes for goal from 30 yards out, with his effort dragging wide when Peluso was making strides down the left.

Celtic are restricted to knocking the ball across the centre, but as Matthews ghosts forward, his delivery is a staightforward clearance for Bonucci.

Quagliarella continues Pirlo's good progress, before Pogba picks up the loose ball, with his deflected through ball eventually gathered at the near post by Forster.

Izaguirre's mistake allows Pirlo to collect the ball in the final third, but his chip into Matri is met by Wilson as Celtic clear.

Commons and Samaras exchange passes, but a loose return from the former invites Marrone in to intercept as Juve regain possession.

Commons' throw-in is taken short, and he collects the ball from Kayal before launching the ball into the box where Samaras' knock-on is caught by Buffon. A bold start so far from the visitors.

The rain really is tipping down in Turin, but Hooper nearly puts a smile on Celtic fans' faces before Bonucci charges down his shot.

Calm play from Celtic, who edge forward with Commons, before Izaguirre's cross is collected in front of Samaras by Buffon.

Wanyama, Pirlo and Quagliarella all tangle, with the free-kick given in Juve's favour, as the Celtic midfielder complains to the referee.

Good pressure from Hooper at the byline, but the striker is a tad too eager and ends up flooring Bonucci as he looked to shield the ball.

Peluso pickpockets Matthews, but upon breaking down the left, the right-back recovers and slides in to see the ball roll back to Forster.

Izaguirre's delivery into the box is headed away by Marrone, before the left-back wins a free-kick up the other end after a foul by Peluso.

A Celtic free-kick sees Ledley knock the ball up towards Hooper but it travels wide of the striker's run and it's a Juventus goal-kick.

Celtic kick off and get the action underway.

Paul McLaughlin writes: "Not too worried about the score tonight as long as Celtic dont get hammered, they have came too far to let their great reputation they have rekindled this year suffer. I hope they have a go tonight a draw woukd be great, realistically they cant progress so let them enjoy the night."

Some betting news from our friends at Sky Bet now. Celtic have the joint-worst defensive record of the remaining teams, with the hosts to win to nil a popular bet ahead of kick-off at 5/4. Juve to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 is a 6/4 shot in Sky Bet's Correct Score Group Betting, but the hosts to win by exactly one goal (5/2) offers better value. Meanwhile, if you fancy the Bhoys to stir things up a little, Georgios Samaras, who has scored in his last three away European games, is 9/2 to score any time.

Analysing that team news further, Celtic manager Neil Lennon makes four changes to his side for the second-leg of their Champions League last-16 clash with Juventus in Turin. Charlie Mulgrew, Beram Kayal, Georgios Samaras and Kris Commons comes in at the expense of Efe Ambrose, Thomas Rogne, James Forrest and Anthony Stokes, all of whom start on the bench. Juve boss Antonio Conte has three players, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal, within one yellow card of a ban and only the latter was involved, starting in midfield along with star man Andrea Pirlo.

Stewart in Edinburgh writes: "Celtic can have no shame! Been brilliant in this tournament, done Scotland proud. Juve are a top team though, 3-1 juve tonight!"

The referee for tonight's game is Firat Aydinus (Turkey).

Celtic: Forster, Matthews, Wilson, Kayal, Izaguirre, Commons, Wanyama, Ledley, Mulgrew, Samaras, Hooper. Subs: Zaluska, Ambrose, Miku, Stokes, Nouioui, McGeouch, Forrest.

Without further ado, here are the teams...

Good evening everybody and welcome to Turin for the Champions League last eight second leg between Juventus and Celtic. The hosts hold a dominant 3-0 lead from the first leg in a game married with controversy due to the Italian side's robust defending. Celtic will need a miracle tonight, can they perform one?

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
