  • FULL-TIME: It's all over at St James' Park and Newcastle crash out after a 1-1 draw on the night as Benfica go through 4-2 on aggregate. Salvio's late goal cancelled out Papiss Cisse's opener for Newcastle to send the Portuguese side into the semi-finals.

  • Jardel comes on for goalscorer Salvio as Benfica bring on a central defender for the striker.

  • GOAL: Benfica have scored as Salvio scores from Rodrigo's cross to end Newcastle's dreams.

  • Cabaye fires in the free-kick and it bounces into the ground before Artur saves smartly.

  • There will be four minutes of added time at the end of the 90 minutes.

  • Chance for Newcastle as Marveaux is brought down by Almeida who is a lucky to escape a sending off as he was already on a booking.

  • Play switches straight up to the other end as Ben Arfa beats his man to work his way into the box, but he drives his shot over the top.

  • Crucial save from Krul to deny Gaitan after Rodrigo picked him out unmarked inside the box.

  • Benfica win a corner to eat up some more time and take some wind out of Newcastle's sails.

  • Scare for Newcastle as Krul palms away Gaitan's cross before Perez fires well over the crossbar.

  • Williamson is booked for tugging back Cardozo.

  • Cardozo tees up Garay to hit the free-kick and he fires his shot just wide of the target.

  • Yanga-Mbiwa is booked after giving away a free kick on the edge of the box.

  • Cabaye tries his luck from 30 yards out but he drags his effort wide of the target.

  • Ben Arfa has made a real difference as he gets to the byline, but his cross is collected by Artur.

  • Cisse heads down to Ameobi and there is a little clip on inside the box, but no penalty given.

  • Newcastle are pouring forward and Ameobi just loses his footing as he fires in a shot which is easily saved by Artur after the striker fell as he hit the shot.

  • Benfica make another change as Ola John is replaced by Rodrigo.

  • Chance for Newcastle as the ball deflects up into the air from Ben Arfa's shot and Cisse gets on the end of it, but under pressure from Artur he cannot direct his effort on target. The keeper was caught by Cisse and he is in need of treatment.

  • Newcastle win a corner as they search for a second goal, but Garay rises highest to head the ball away.
