  1. Thanks for joining us tonight. That's all for the commentary for this game, but don't forget to check back for a full match report.

  2. Neil Lennon's side now face an uphill battle when these two teams face each other again in eight days time. They certainly had the chances to score tonight, but defensively, they looked vulnerable and Lennon will be hoping that a Celtic Park crowd can spur them on to turn this tie around.

  3. It's all over in Kazakhstan and it's finished Shakhtyor Karaganda 2 Celtic 0.

  4. 90+2

    Shakhtyor mount a counter attack but Ledley snuffs out the danger and the ball finds its way back to Forster.

  5. 90+2

    It's a great throw from Matthews towards Balde but the hosts clear and could break...

  6. 90+1

    Celtic win a throw deep in the opposition half. Matthews is going to launch it into the area.

  7. 90

    The fourth official indicates three extra minutes to be played. There's still time for Celtic to pull one back.

  8. 89

    Matthew's throw is flicked on by Van Dijk into a dangerous area but Mulgrew heads over the bar.

  9. 88

    Chance for Matthews to try the long throw-in after Forrest is dispossessed near the corner flag.

  10. 87

    Celtic are throwing bodies forward as the game enters its closing stages.

  11. 86

    Samaras loses the ball inside his own half, really frustrating evening for Celtic as his team-mates let him know exactly what they think.

  12. 85

    Another chance for the hosts to launch a throw-in into the area, not where Celtic want to be.

  13. 84

    Van Dijk eventually takes it but it's a poor effort which sails way over the bar. That pretty much summed up Celtic's night.

  14. 84

    Mulgrew and Van Dijk stand over the free-kick...

  15. 83

    Free-kick in a shooting position after Commons is brought down on the turn. This could be a big moment for Celtic's Champions League hopes.

  16. 82

    Corner for the hosts is played short before Celtic eventually clear their lines.

  17. Amido Balde replaces Emilio Izaguirre for Celtic. Attacker for defender - Lennon is clearly desperate for that away goal.

  18. The scorer of the opening goal, Andrei Finonchenko, is replaced by Igor Zenkovich for the hosts.

  19. 80

    Mulgrew's free-kick is punched away by Mokin. I'm not sure if the ball is slippery tonight but both goal keepers seem reluctant to try catching it from crosses.

  20. Sky Bet make Celtic a massive 22/1 to claw this game back to 2-2, though they're only 7/2 to come away with a 2-1 defeat. Bet in-play now with Sky Bet!
