So VAR - will everyone ever agree on whether it is a good thing - it seems that it still causes controversy the thing it was meant to help get rid of? 0-1 17 minutes left - turn to force a save.

's are getting back into this they are the better side now - Sabaly breaks forward and the defender lets fly with a shot from a long way out and M'Bolhi makes the spectacular save - the ball was straight at him.

Referee has decided that Guediora's arm was not making his body any bigger as he had it by his side. 0-1 - which teams gets the boost from that incident??

10 minutes of the second-half - a little bit better - but both sides guilty of sloppy passes that simply give away possession! Who can stop the waste and create the chances here!! 0-1 56 mins played -

The fans certainly know the danger that Sadio Mane poses - they boo and whistle every time he has the ball and moves forward - not sure if that puts the man off OR simply encourages him?

Second 45 minutes has started - will the animosity from half-time spill over and carry on? Can find the secret to unlocking ? How can find a second goal?

HALF-TIME: 0-1 - a lucky goal separates the two sides - the early goal was the highlight of a not very exciting opening 45 minutes. Now they are fighting amongst the players and subs as they head to the tunnel.

Once again a neat passing move and 's Ismaila Sarr is in the area - he is tackled - calls for a penalty waved away - into added time at the end of the first-half lead 1-0.

start some passing and it pays dividends as they mount an attack of sorts M'Baye Niang fires the ball just wide from 28 metres - The look so much more threatening when they pass the ball on the floor and not long over the top.

You can always tell when the game gets too boring to entertain the fans - that's the point the "Mexican Wave" starts... at the moment a lot of time is being spent with players on the ground apparently injured...

It has all gone a little bit quiet on the pitch - neither side really able to get forward and create problems for the other's keeper. 30 mins played 0-1

are slowly getting more of the ball and are managing to push forward at times but at the moment it is too many long balls going forward that just aren't working defence looks comfortable with those.

Salif Sane is the unlucky man that the ball deflects off! Not that the fans care as they celebrate wildly - tries to use his pace to go forward he is fouled by Bensbaini

GOAL!!! 0-1 - Bounedjah bursts forward takes a shot rather than passing it hits a defender loops very high - everyone thinks it is over the bar but it drops into the back of the net - even Bounedjah was shocked there

There a lot of flags in the stadium and they are all being held above heads as they wait to come out of the tunnel - there are a few flags too but really outnumbered.
