  • 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.
