    • 90+2' There's the final whistle. After a really good first half, the second half was poor and Braga will be the happier side with the result.
    • 90+1' Surprising that Kiev haven't made any more changes with two substitutes remaining.
    • 90' Two minutes of time added on.
    • 86' Yarmolenko is flagged offside as he raced clear. He was - just.
    • 84' Lots of tired legs out there now.
    • 82' Third and final change for Braga. Lima is replaced by Meyong.
    • 76' Paulo Cesar smashes a shot from distance which flies into the side netting at the near post.
    • 74' Mossaro replaces Salino for Braga.
    • 72' Braga are dictating the play now due to that red card.
    • 68' Popov is booked after hauling down Alan.
    • 65' Chance for the visitors. Viana's free-kick is deflected into the path of Lima, who gets too much on his header and sends it over. A subtle glancing effort could have put his side in front, although it was a difficult effort with his back to goal.
    • 63' Finally, some football to talk about. A short corner from Viana and Silvio lets fly from range, only to see it fizz just wide of the far post with the keeper beaten.
    • 62' Not the greatest contribution from the former Chelsea man! But he can feel a little hard done by.
    • 61' It's a Robin Van Persie moment. Shevchenko is offside but plays on and puts the ball in the net. He claims he didn't hear the whistle but it's to no avail.
    • 61' Shevchenko is sent off!
    • 59' Popov strikes Alan with a hand in the face. No free-kick is given.
    • 55' No action of a football kind so far in this half, just a flurry of yellow cards.
    • 53' Shevchenko is now booked for catching Garcia. Poor tackle.
    • 51' Now it's a yellow for Paulo Cesar after a hefty challenge on Silva.
    • 49' Yarmolenko and Garcia are both booked.
    • 48' Handbags between Alan and Yarmolenko.
    • 46' Custodio is also on for Braga, replacing Paulao.
    • 46' The second half gets under way.
    • 46' That man Shevchenko is on for Kravets for the start of the second half.
    • 45+2' That's the half-time whistle.
    • 45' Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
    • 42' Corner by Gusev is met by Kravets whose header bounces into the ground but is well saved by Artur again. He's keeping his side level.
    • 37' Oooh, dipping shot from Gusev from 35 yards is tipped over by Artur.
    • 36' Replays have shown the own goal was actually by Gusev.
    • 35' Yellow card for Kaka. That was a poor challenge on Gusev.
    • 31' Paulo Cesar is caught offside.
    • 30' Pass by Eremenko sees Yarmolenko beat the offside trap but Artur is quick off his line to smother the danger.
    • 27' Braga win a free-kick out on the right but Viana's delivery is woeful and flies over everyone and out for a goal-kick.
    • 26' A bit of a lull in the game now after that crazy start. Some sloppy passing by both teams.
    • 22' It has certainly been an action-packed opening to the game.
    • 20' Good chance for Milevskiy. Silva pulls the ball back from the right but the Kiev striker shoots first time from 10 yards and it goes wide of the far post. He had time to bring the ball under control.
    • 19' Another corner causes panic in the Kiev box. Viana again takes it and Shovkovskiy gets nowhere near it. There was no Braga player on hand to capitalise, however.
    • 16' Great save by Artur to tip a Yarmolenko shot over after a superb backheel by Milevskiy puts him in. Brilliant football.
    • 13' Hugo Viana's corner was drilled low across the ground and Vukojevic sticks out a leg to turn it into his own goal from four yards.
    • 12' GOAL. it's 1-1! It looks like an own goal.
    • 9' Gusev found in acres of space on the right. He cuts inside but his shot is blocked and goes into the arms of Artur.
    • 8' A let off for the visitors. A long ball over the top puts Yarmolenko clear down the left. Artur inexplicably comes racing out of his goal and Yarmolenko skips by him, but shoots into the side netting from a tight angle.
    • 6' Cross from the right by Gusev is met by the head of Yarmolenko, whose header flies into the net.
    • 6' GOAL! 1-0 Kiev! What a start.
    • 5' Referee has a word with Silva after he fouls Lima.
    • 3' Popov takes it and goes for goal...but he fires it straight into the wall.
    • 3' Handball against Kaka. Free-kick to Kiev 30 yards out.
    • 2' Pitch doesn't look too clever. Quite a few bobbles already out there.
    • 1' We're off at the Lobanovsky Dynamo Stadium in Kiev.
    • 20:00 Braga have no major injury concerns. Brazilian forward Lima will start up front, with Alan and Paulo Cesar on the wings. Leandro Salino will partner Hugo Viana in the centre of the park.
    • 19:59 Shevchenko is third in the all-time ranking of goalscorers in European club competitions with 67, with only Filippo Inzaghi and Raul ahead of him.

    • 19:33 Nevertheless, the Archbishops have had a sensational European campaign. They shocked Liverpool in the knockout stage, beating them 1-0 on aggregate to reach the last eight.
    • 19:32 Their European qualification for the next season also looks doubtful as fourth-placed Sporting Lisbon are catching up on them fast.
    • 19:32 Sporting Braga havr struggled in the Superliga this season and are currently in third place with 40 points. That’s a staggering 31 points behind leaders FC Porto.
    • 19:31 They have a poor recent record against Portuguese opposition, though, losing seven times in 10 outings.
    • 19:31 The Ukrainians have had a brilliant campaign in Europe and defeated Manchester City to reach the last eight of the competition.
    • 19:31 Dynamo are second in the Ukrainian Premier League with 49 points, 12 adrift of leaders Shakhtar Donetsk. Kiev have scored 42 goals so far in the league, conceding only 18 in the process.
    • 19:30 Yuri Semin's men are unbeaten in the competition at home. Infact, Kiev have lost just once at home in 18 games this season in all competitions.
    • 19:25 Dynamo Kiev will be without Serbia international midfielder Milos Ninkovic after he was advised to rest for two weeks following a knee injury. Ninkovic felt pain in his knee at the beginning of the 2012 European Championship qualifier against Estonia and was substituted after 14 minutes.
