8.02pmIf tonight’s game is anything like the last time these two teams met, then we will be in for a treat. On that occasion, the match finished in a 3-3 draw, with Sergio Floccari scoring two goals for Lazio in the last five minutes to earn them a point.

1 minKICKOFF! We are underway at the Stadio Olimpico.

3 minIt has been a scrappy start to the game with both teams giving away the ball cheaply and unable to string a number of passes together.

4 minThe away side do well to get deep into Lazio's half, but they wait too long and are unable to deliver the ball into the box.

5 minLazio burst forward and give the Trabzonspor defence some worrying moments after Cavanda delivers a fine cross into the box, but they manage to scramble it clear.

7 minMalouda has the first chance for the away side, as he picks the ball up 25 yards out from goal, before firing in a low effort, that the keeper does well to hold onto.

9 minHenrique burts through the Lazio defence, and manages to evade a couple of tackles, before seeing his strike blocked by the defence.

10 minThis game is incredibly open and there is acres of space available in the midfield. Both sides have started positively and are looking to attack at every opportunity.

13 minTrabzonspor are enjoying a decent spell of possession at the moment and are confidently playing it around the Lazio midfielders.

14 minCHANCE! A good passage of play from the home side ends in Ederson hammering in a long range shot, but it is hit straight at Kıvrak who collects the ball.

16 minCavanda has looked lively down the left hand side for Lazio, and he has delivered a number of decent crosses already, that the away side have managed to deal with.

19 minEderson looks to burst forward and is brought down by Akgun. Lazio will have a free kick 25 yards out from goal in a central position.

21 minEderson takes the free kick and fires it in low, but again it is too close to the keeper who gathers the ball with ease.

22 minYELLOW CARD! Aykut gives away a free kick for a foul on Ederson and is booked this time. It is another promising set piece situation for the hosts.

22 minAgain Lazio waste the free kick, as Ledesma plays a low ball into the box that fails to beat the first man.

24 minLedesma picks up the ball on the right hand side and delivers a teasing ball into the box, but Kivrak is alert and off his line quickly to claim.

26 minTrabzonspor win a free kick in the Lazio half, which Adın takes, but his effort fails to find anyone in the middle and travels all the way through to Berisha.

28 minAnderson goes on a wonderful solo run, gliding through the midfield, but as he reaches the edge of the box, he attempts to backheel the ball into the path of Floccari, with the defence managing to intercept.

30 minIt is extremely untidy at the moment, with a number of passes from each side going astray. There are a few more fouls creeping into the game, which are disrupting the flow.

33 minYELLOW CARD! Biava picks up a booking for a late challenge on Yumlu.

36 minCavanda has put in some fine deliveries this evening, and this time he bends a brilliant ball into the box from the right hand side, that Floccari connects with, but he can't engineer enough power to trouble the keeper.

38 minKeita picks up the ball on the left hand side, before cutting inside and attempting a strike on goal, that goes well wide of the target.

40 minLazio win a corner as Edersen bursts down the left hand side and sees his low cross put behind.

40 minCHANCE! Lazio should be ahead! The corner is played in by Keita, and Floccari meets it in the air, but he somehow directs the ball wide of the goal.

42 minLazio put together a good passing move and the ball is played into the path of Edersen on the edge of the area, however he takes his time to get the shot away, and the defence manage to clear.

43 minCHANCE! Lazio win another corner and come agonizingly close to scoring again! The set piece is delivered to the back post and headed back across with Ederson attempting an acrobatic effort that goes just wide.

45 minHALF-TIME: Lazio 0-0 Trabzonspor

8.53pmIt is goalless at half time between Lazio and Trabzonspor, and up until the final five minutes of the half, there wasn't too much excitement. The home side came close from two corners, but they were unable to make their chances count.

8.56pmAs things stand, Trabzonspor are heading through to the last 32 in first place, with Lazio following them behind in second. The home side are two points behind their opponents and must win this game to top the group.

8.59pmLazio's best threat in the first half came from Cavanda who put some great deliveries into the box, which their attacking players were unable to make the most of. They will need to find more of a cutting edge in the final third to grab a goal tonight.

9.02pmTrabzonspor will certainly be the happier of the two sides and their manager will be hoping for more of the same in the second half. They did start to give away some silly free kicks late on in the half, and will need to keep their discipline in the closing stages of this game.

9.05pmThe teams are making their way out of the tunnel and it shouldn't be long until the action recommences here.

46 minWe are back underway!

48 minLazio are looking to impose themselves on this game and have enjoyed plenty of possession, but as yet, they have been unable to work any decent openings.

49 minAnderson gets to the byline down the left hand side after a strong run, but his delivery into the middle is struck too close to the keeper.

52 minLazio are starting to prise their opponents open, and the ball breaks to Ederson on the edge of the area, who then fires in low effort that the keeper does well to hold onto.

54 minThe hosts win a free kick in a good position deep inside their opponents half, but Ledesma's delivery is poor and Kivrak comes out to claim.

56 minThe home fans are starting to get restless, and they let their frustrations show when a move between Anderson and Floccari breaks down.

58 minLazio look short on ideas at the moment and it wouldn't be a surprise if the manager was considering making a change shortly.

59 minSUBSTITUTION: Just as I say that, they make the change! Candreva is on and replaces Anderson.

60 minYELLOW CARD! Demir is booked for the visitors after bringing down Candreva.

62 minThe home side put together a good move down the right hand side, but are wasteful yet again when they are given the chance to cross.

64 minTrabzonspor have kept hold of the ball for the past couple of minutes as they look to ease the pressure on their defence.

65 minSUBSTITUTION: The visitors make a change, as Erdogan replaces Alanzinho.

65 minSUBSTITUTION: Lazio also change things around, with Hernanes coming on for Onazi.

67 minYELLOW CARD! Erdogan picks up a deserved booking for a lunging tackle on Cavanda by the corner flag.

68 minCandreva takes the resulting free kick, but it is poor and the delivery is straight into the keepers gloves.

70 minLazio nearly have a big chance, as Floccari gets on the end of a long ball into the box, but it wouldn't drop early enough for him to hit, and by the time he goes for goal, the defence are able to block.

72 minKlose is getting stripped off and it shouldn't be too long before we see him on the pitch.

74 minYumlu is lucky not to pick up a yellow card for bringing down Candreva as he looked to break forward.

75 minSUBSTITUTION: Klose is on the pitch now and he has replaced Ederson.

76 minCandreva has a glimpse of the goal as he meets a cross form the left, but his effort doesn't come close to troubling the keeper.

80 minKlose nearly gets a chance to showcase his aerial prowess, but Candreva's delivery is slightly over his head.

82 minThe away side haven't come under too much pressure in this half, which is surprising considering Lazio need to win the game in order to top the group.

84 minTrabzonspor give away a cheap corner as the ball is played back far too strongly for Kivrak to keep in, but Lazio fail to make anything from the set piece.

86 minYELLOW CARD! Radu is booked for bringing down Adin on the edge of the box, and he is lucky not to see a Red card, as it looked like he was the last man.

87 minSUBSTITUTION: The visitors make a change as Gural comes on for Henrique.

90 minLazio have pushed a number of players forward in search of a goal, but the away defence have stood firm and cleared the ball whenever it has come close to their box.

90 minWe are going to have four minutes of stoppage time.

90+1 minYELLOW CARD! Candreva is booked for the home side, after a foul on Demir.

90+2 minKlose does brilliantly to get to the byline and pull the ball back across the box, before it is cleared by the away side for a corner.

90+2 minThe delivery fails to beat the first man after a disappointing cross.

90+4 minTrabzonspor have the ball where they want it, by the corner flag in the Lazio half. They just need to keep hold of the ball and they top the group.

90+4 minFULL-TIME: Lazio 0-0 Trabzonspor

9.56pmThe game is over and Trabzonspor have claimed the point they needed to top the group. They produced a polished defensive display to gain a memorable result at the Stadio Olimpico. Lazio will feel disappointed at the lack of clear cut chances they created, after failing to make the breakthrough.

10pmThat's all we've got time for here. Please stay with us at Sports Mole as we bring you the results from all of tonight's Europa League matches, but from me, it's goodbye!
