  1. Lillian Wieder: If indeed this game goes to penalties, Burnley will probably be glad that they bought Joe Hart. Penalty-saving legend.

  2. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    A familiar face is sat in the stands this evening.

    Cenk Tosun, Everton’s Turkish striker, is sat next to Istanbul’s president, presumably checking out his Premier League opponents for the new season.

  3. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Emmanuel Adebayor proves to be a nuisance almost immediately. He forces a foul off Shane Long.

  4. Rangers through to play-offs

    FT: NK Maribor 0-0 Rangers (1-3)

    Meanwhile, Rangers go through to the play-off round where FC Ufa wait.

    Steven Gerrard’s side looked pretty well organised as they kept a clean sheet but Allan McGregor was forced to save a late penalty.

    That’s now three away games in this competition without conceding a goal.

    Live reaction over here.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Prepare yourself…

    Emmanuel Adebayor has come on for Istanbul.

    Joe Hart is then called into action at the other end as Istanbul win a series of corners.

  7. CLOSE!

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Sam Vokes gets his head on the end of the resulting corner but can’t direct it to the side of Mert Gunok and the keeper gathers it in fairly comfortably.

  8. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    It’s been fairly quiet so far in the second half but Burnley are keen to maintain their pressure, earning a corner which Johan Gudmundsson will take.

  9. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Joe Hart proves his worth yet again. He has been a great signing for Burnley so far.

    It’s that man Edin Visca with another effort on goal. Hart gets his body in the way and blocks it well.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Sean Dyche makes his first move of the game.

    Aaron Lennon is the man to come off and Johan Gudmundsson takes his place.

  11. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Still little sign of a goal coming at Turf Moor. Remember this game will go to extra time if the two teams can’t be decided in 90 minutes.

  12. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

  13. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    The corner is cleared by Istanbul but Burnley keep the pressure on before Aaron Lennon has a shot blocked.

    The Clarets then try to find the run of Ashley Barnes but he is caught offside for the second time in the game.

  14. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Fifth corner of the match to Burnley.

  15. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Aaron Lennon and Gael Clichy have had a nice little battle going on down Burnley’s right flank but this time it’s the former Arsenal and Manchester City defender who gets the better of Lennon.

  16. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    Emre Belozoglu, who had a great game for Istanbul over in Turkey, has been kept fairly quiet tonight.

    Jeff Hendrick makes himself known to him early in the second half too – giving away a free-kick as he comes tumbling in hard on the former Newcastle midfielder.

  17. KICK-OFF

    Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

  18. Post update

    BBC Sport at Turf Moor

    Such a bizarre atmosphere here at Turf Moor in this Europa League clash. No Istanbul away fans so Burnley have decided to sing among themselves. Jimmy Mc Lower vs Longside vs Bob Lord Stand!

  19. Martin Mbeja: A wonder goal at the tail end of the match will decide the tie in Burnley’s favour.

    You heard it from Martin first.

  20. Hard Brexit

    HT: Burnley 0-0 Istanbul Basaksehir

    So here’s a new one…

    Brexit.

    Apparently it could be “hugely damaging” to English football, according to Burnley chairman Mike Garlick and Stoke’s Peter Coates.

    “The hit to the value of the pound against the euro, largely caused by Brexit uncertainty, is already making it harder for clubs to sign players,” he said.
