    • 90' The referee blows his whistle to end the match. Swansea win the tie 5-1 and are now just 90 minutes away from a place in the Europa League group stage.
    • 87' GOAL!! And what a goal that is! Petrolul have pulled one back and it's Gheorghe Grozav, who becomes this year's Europa League top scorer. The ball is whipped in from the left but takes a huge deflection and loops up into the air. Grozav reacts quickest, manipulating his body to send a wonderful overhead kick into the far corner from 15 yards.
    • 70' GOAL!! Swansea have FIVE!! Substitute Jonathan De Guzman, who has been on the pitch a matter of minutes, bursts towards the Petrolul goal, tricking his way past a few defenders before rolling the ball to Michu. The striker drops his shoulder on the edge of the penalty area, jinking to his left which allows him to play in Pozuelo. With the goalkeeper racing off his line, the Spaniard simply clips the ball over the custodian and into the back of the net.
    • 58' GOAL!! Swansea get their fourth. It looks to be an own goal from the Petrolul goalkeeper. Routledge initially bursts down the left and cuts inside before playing Michu in with a clever reverse ball. The Spaniard cuts the ball back into the path of Bony who fires a shot at goal. The goalkeeper is able to get a hand to the ball but, after trying to claw it away, ends up pushing it into his own net.
    • 47' Wonderful effort from Bony. Hernandez clips a lovely ball into him from the right and the former Vitesse man knocks the ball past the defender with his first touch before smacking the bar from the tightest of angles.
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • HT Half-time and Swansea in complete control.
    • 25' GOAL! It is another goal for Routledge - great quick move after Michu won the ball in midfield - Hernandez puts in a perfect cross and Routledge is there to nod home.
    • 22' GOAL! 2-0 Swansea. Michu has poked home from close range - his second Europa League goal.
    • 14' GOAL! 1-0 Swansea. Wayne Routledge's strike is deflected in after some good work from Jonjo Shelvey.
    • 10' Some nice football from Swansea in the early stages but still looking to break down their opponents from Romania.
    • 1' Match underway at the Liberty Stadium.
