  1. 90

    FT: Besiktas 0 Arsenal 0. Aaron Ramsey's dismissal will give Arsene Wenger a selection headache, but a solid display from the Gunners against a determined Turkish side should stand them in good stead for the second-leg.

  2. 90+2

    The home side are pushing for a late winner, but they simply cannot find a way through the resolute Gunners backline.

  3. 90

    Four minutes of added time.

  4. 90

    Rosicky comes on for Cazorla.

  5. 89

    SAVE! Incredible save from Zengin. Oxlaide-Chamberlain looked to have broken the deadlock with a fine run and effort, but Zengin's fingers touched the ball onto the post and gathered the rebound.

  6. 87

    Tosun comes on for Penktemek as the hosts look for a late winner

  7. 85

    Frei works the space well, but overhits the pass and the ball runs out for a goal-kick. Wasted opportunity for the home side.

  8. 83

    That was Ozyakup's last contribution, as he is replaed by former Fulham man Kerim Frei.

  9. 81

    Ramsey receives a second yellow card for a tug on Ozyakup. Very cynical and not waht the Gunners needed.

  10. 80

    Cazorla fires a free-kick around the wall, straight at the 'keeper, who gathers at the second attempt after a nasty bobble.

  11. 78

    Oxlaide-Chamberlain has an effort from distance, but it is quickly closed down and blocked. Looked goal bound.

  12. 76

    Ozyakup is the next man to go in the book for a challenge on Calum Chambers.

  13. 74

    Tore coming on for the home side, with Sahan making way.

  14. 72

    Alexis Sanchez is replaced by Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain for the Gunners.

  15. 70

    Ramsey this time gets the ball down in the box, but he again tries one trick too many, and is once again tackled. Has to pull the trigger.

  16. 67

    CHANCE! Giroud in the thick of the action, but he cannot get connection on the low cross from Sanchez.

  17. 64

    Arsenal just cannot get hold of possession. They are not getting forward quick enough to support Giroud, who is looking more frustrated as the game wears on.

  18. 62

    Calum Chambers looking very assured at the back, and is coping very well under all the pressure.
