  • Full time in Maribor and it's Maribor 1-1 Celtic. A great draw and a valuable away goal for Deila's men, who will certainly fancy their chances in next week's return leg in Glasgow. Thanks for joining me!

  • Celtic burst out on the counter attack and the ball is threaded through eventually towards an onrushing Johansen, in the box, but his goal-bound effort is deflected out for a corner. Celtic keep it in the corner.

  • Ambrose loses the ball in his own half and Maribor break on the counter dangerously, but Ambrose gets back to clear the ball for a corner, which is eventually cleared.

  • There will be three minutes of stoppage time.

  • A nicely weighted delivery from Viler is delivered into the heart of the Celtic area but Biton rises well to clear the ball from danger.

  • Celtic aim to counter-attack but McGregor handballs just before the half-way line giving Maribor the chance to deliver a dangerous ball in. The ball is cleared to the flanks and eventually Sallalich is fouled by Izaguirre on the left-flank gifting Maribor another set-piece opportunity.

  • Beram Kayal comes off for Nir Biton (Celtic)

  • Anxious times as Celtic are pinned back in their own box as Maribor continue their pressure on the Bhoys backline.

  • Superb save from Gordon! Substitute Mertelj hammers a 30-yard-drive towards the top-left corner but it's expertly turned behind by the former Sunderland stopper who denies a certain goal.

  • Dervisevic off, Ales Mertelj on (Maribor)

  • Griffiths pinches the ball off Suler on the edge of Maribor's area and feeds in McGregor, who rather theatrically falls to floor after a slight touch from Suler and rightly so, the referee waves away the appeals.

  • Ten minutes to go in Slovenia. If it stays like this, surely Ronny Deila will be the happier of the two managers.

  • Anthony Stokes comes off for Leigh Griffiths (Celtic)

  • Damjan Bohar comes off for Sintayehu Sallalich (Maribor)

  • Maribor appeal for a penalty as Mendy is brought down in the area by van Dijk, but once again the referee refuses to listen to the penalty pleas.

  • Celtic's Callum McGregor booked for tugging Agim Ibraimi's shirt.

  • Super effort from van Dijk as he brings the ball out of defense and fires in a 30 yard strike, which is tipped over by Handanovic. Fantastic effort which was well met by Maribor's keeper.

  • Kayal falls under a challenge from Viler in the area, but his claims for a penalty are waved away despite strong appeals from the Celtic players.

  • Jo Inge Berget comes off for Efe Ambrose (Celtic)

  • Dare Vrsic comes off for Jean-Philippe Mendy (Maribor)
