  1. Post update

    Riga 0-0 Celtic

    Ryan Christie cuts in from the right and lets rip with a shot but the keeper snaffles it up at the second attempt.

  2. ‘Goal is against the run of play’

    Beer Sheva 1-0 Motherwell

    James McFadden

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: It’s against the run of play. It’s a brilliant delivery and Vitor is all alone. That will really anger Stephen Robinson since they don’t deserve to be behind here.

  3. Post update

    Riga 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic continue to struggle to find any room to manoeuvre as Riga keep their shape and discipline impressively well.

  4. GOAL Beer Shiva 1-0 Motherwell

    It’s first blood to the home side and it comes from the captain. Josue’s dangerous free-kick from deep is met perfectly by the 31-year-old as he powers a header past Trevor Carson.

  5. ‘Motherwell should be ahead’

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    James McFadden

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: That’s a huge chance for Motherwell. If Tony Watt makes a good connection it’s a certain goal

  6. CLOSE!

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    Another great chance for the Lanarkshire side.

    Beer Sheva make a mess of dealing with Stephen O’Donnell’s long throw-in and as the ball breaks for Tony Watt he can’t make a clean connection before his follow up effort is blocked.

  7. Post update

    Riga 0-0 Celtic

    Jeremie Frimpong drills the ball into a busy penalty area from the right and it almost falls for Callum McGregor. His blocked effort spins high into the air and the keeper makes a meal of his punch away but gets away with it.

  10. ‘Celtic need to keep calm’

    HT: Riga 0-0 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Celtic have had a lot of possession but are sturggling to break down Riga, although they have missed a couple of big chances. But they can’t panic, they need to remain calm and just up the tempo in the second half.

  11. Back under way in Latvia. We need to see more urgency from the Scottish champions.

  12. GREAT SAVE!

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    Last Thursday’s hero Trevor Carson has had his first save to make as Acolatse skips in from the left, but the former Ajax man’s close range effort is from a tight angle and Carson does well to divert the ball round his near post.

  13. ‘Question mark over Taylor’

    Sporting v Aberdeen (20:00)

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Derek McInnes is showing Ash Taylor some great loyalty keeping him in the side. Sunday was a complete disaster, so there is a big question mark over him and he’s got to step up.

  14. Well strikers working so hard

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell’s front two of Tony Watt and Chris Long are grafting tirelessly, just as they did on Sunday at Pittodrie.

    You have to wonder how much they have in the tank after their weekend efforts, but so far they not giving the Beer Sheva defence a moment’s peace.

  15. Not a classic so far…

  16. ‘Motherwell the better team so far’

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    James McFadden

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: Beer Sheva look as though they can cause problems but so far Motherwell have coped nicely and have been the better team here.

  17. GREAT SAVE!

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell carve out their first chance and its saved spectacularly by Levita in the Beer Sheva goal.

    Tony Watt’s low cross finds Chris Long, the striker turns before drilling the ball towards the far corner but the goalkeeper gets down low to tip it away superbly.

  18. McGeouch gets the nod for Dons

    Sporting v Aberdeen (20:00)

    Dylan McGeouch makes a start in midfield for Aberdeen, who stick with the 3-5-2 system that has served them well – apart from on Sunday.

    Tommie Hoban and Shay Logan are back, while the versatile Ross McCrorie gets a run in midfield this time.

  19. HALF-TIME Riga 0-0 Celtic

    Stalemate at halfway… Celtic have seen a lot of the ball but they haven’t done an awful lot with it.

    The best chance fell to Nir Bitton but he scuffed his shot with the goal gaping.

  20. CLOSE!

    Beer Sheva 0-0 Motherwell

    The first opening of the game falls to the Israeli side after a defensive lapse from Ricki Lamie.

    The former Livingston man fails to deal with a cross before the ball falls for Agudelo, but the forward’s effort is slashed high and wide.
