Match Commentary

90' Enough's enough. Referee Temmink blows for full-time and Newcastle's early exit from Europe is almost certain. 2-0 Juventus
90' Last chance for Dyer, firing low from an acute angle... Buffon down to block though
90' Into injury-time and Lua Lua wins a foul off Nedved. Dyer bursts forward, but Ameobi's offside in the box
90' Robert gets to the byeline but his cross is too close to Buffon, who scoops it up under no pressure. Shearer exasperated
89' Nedved, in acres, finds Trezeguet on the far side. Birindelli arrives to shot from range but Newcastle shirts are in the way
88' First run for Viana through midfield. He finds Lua Lua, who is immediately fouled - 35 yards out on the right. Robert takes again and the ball cannons off his own player. Juve break
86' Del Piero's still hungry, getting past Dabizas but O'Brien does well to turn it behind. Shearer - once again - is at the near post to head Nedved's corner away
86' Birindelli replaces Tudor, while Fresi is on for Baiocco
85' That's it for Newcastle here. They've played manfully but Juve, in all truth, have always had the killer touch of class
82' More space at the back as Davids gets down the left to cross. Lovely dummy from Trezeguet and Del Piero takes aim under pressure from Viana at the edge of the box... it's deflected off O'Brien and past Given. 2-0 Juve
80' Thuram cuts in from the right to shoot, but poorly with his left foot. Given has it again
79' Last throw of the dice from Sir Bobby as Ameobi and Lua Lua replace Jenas and Griffin, who have both done well tonight
78' Newcastle's increasing desperation reflected in Robert's increasingly ambitious strike from long range. Buffon untroubled
76' Juve win a freekick on their right - it drops for Davids to try a bicycle kick, totally mishit, on the edge of the box. Given eventually gathers
74' Newcastle under the cosh. Speed half clears under pressure only for Moretti to fire in another cross from the left. This time Trezeguet can't quite control
74' Newcastle break and this time Iuliano pulls Dyer back. Free-kick and a yellow card for the defender. Robert takes a blast from 30 yards but Buffon can watch it glide wide - wasteful
73' Davids seizes a loose ball in midfield. It's to Nedved whose first cross is headed firmly away by Dabizas. The Czech tries again and floats a beauty juist beyond Trezeguet et al
72' Dyer's frustration getting the better of him as he hauls Iuliano down needlessly
70' Nedved lays it off for Del Piero, whose cross is overhit and Trezeguet fails to control at the far post
69' Sir Bobby makes his first change as young Hugo Viana replaces Solano, who took a knock in the first half
68' Newcastle break and Shearer is at the far post to power a header past Buffon - but agony for the former England skipper as Dyer is ruled offside in the middle of the box
67' Tudor gets a touch and Trezeguet can't quite get to the tap-in. Given collects
65' Magnificent strike from Del Piero, on fire this season, and Newcastle, from looking good to get a result, are staring down the barrel. Now Del Piero wins a corner
65' Dabizas misses the next game and, to compound his woe, Del Piero curls a Beckham-esque right-footer into the top corner. 1-0 Juve!
64' Loose clearance from Speed. Tudor heads forward and Dabizas pulls Del Piero back as he bears down on goal. Ref Temmink says it's a freekick right on the edge of the box. Yellow card for Dabizas
63' Newcastle, looking far more confident now, stroke it around before Griffin loses out on the wing. Throw-in to the hosts
62' Hand-ball against Tudor as Shearer comes off the winner in another aerial duel
61' Del Piero shows his class, jinking away from two defenders to find room to strike. Deflected for a corner which Shearer heads clear
60' Another dangerous cross - this time Robert's and Buffon scrambles to pounce on the loose ball after a touch from one of his defenders
60' Newcastle break swiftly. Robert finds Dyer but Moretti gets across to spoil Shearer's efforts
59' Davids on the burst down the left. Nedved crosses for Trezeguet at the far post but Dabizas does enough to put him off and the header drops softly into Given's hands
58' Shearer looks for Dyer with a flick-on but his arm was raised - another freekick
57' Easily cleared though and the ball's quickly back down field with Given
56' Robert finds space - an early ball for Shearer at the near post and the Magpies win a corner of Montero
55' Shearer wins a freekick after Thuram raises an arm... but then Speed is guilty of the same offence in the Juve box
54' This time referee Temmink spots a foul and Newcastle can relax
53' Given just gets enough on Del Piero's kick and it's another corner on the far side. This one comes out to Baiocco, whose shot is deflected off Jenas behind for another...
52' Thuram feeds Baiocco as Juve sweep forward. Trezeguet is in the box but O'Brien's intervention is crucial. Corner kick
51' Montero and Tudor team up as Dyer holds it up. Freekick to Newcastle, but Robert's delivery is poor from 40 yards out. Baiocco wins a freekick to end the danger
50' Speed and Robert work hard to slow Juve's progress down the Toon left... Now Dabizas shelters the ball as Del Piero lurks - goalkick
48' Juve scrappy at the start - Baiocco surrenders possession needlessly but the Italian champions recover and it's Baiocco again with a cross that Given has to be sharp for
47' Another run for Dyer and Iuliano is back to concede the corner... Buffon makes a hash of it but Juve scramble it clear
46' No further changes made following Trezeguet's earlier-than-scheduled arrival
46' Newcastle 225 Champions League minutes without a goal... but they're still in this one as Juve kick-off for the second half in Turin
45' Juve stunned by that - Newcastle so close. Half-time whistle goes
45' Newcastle break and Dyer does get round the back this time. Shearer misses the pullback but Robert arrives to hammer his volley at goal... but straight at Buffon, who recovers to punch the ball clear.
45' Nedved goes down under Griffin's challenge. Del Piero takes but Jenas intercepts
45' Newcastle have edged their way into this game since that - a more business-like performance without having really threatened the Juve goal

44' Dabizas takes a knock as he battles in the air with Trezeguet
43' Montero's strength wins easily as Dyer tries to speed his way down the right flank
42' Given flaps at Del Piero's freekick, but does just enough to distract Iuliano, who can't head it cleanly... goalkick

40' Tudor lurks outside the box for Del Piero's knockdown but Newcastle manage to clear
38' Good possession football from Newcastle - Jenas and Solano particularly effective. Now Griffin cuts it inside for Speed to strike from range - but high and wide of Buffon's goal
37' Di Vaio has recovered consciousness thankfully and is on his way to hospital
36' Montero prods one forward from the back - over the top but Trezeguet is offside anyway
34' Now O'Brien has to play it back to Given for another clearance. Juve build again - Nedved powers down the inside right, falling rather theatrically under Griffin's challenge. Referee Temmink of Holland unimpressed
33' Juve pressing very hard when Newcastle are in possession. Dyer is forced back as Davids closes
32' ... who takes the corner kick from the left, but beyond all his colleagues. Goalkick
32' O'Brien marshals the ball back to his keeper, but Given slices badly and the defender is soon called into action again, conceding a corner to Del Piero
30' Nedved bursts clear into the box - Given does brilliantly to save but the whistle's already gone against the Czech for foot up
29' Dyer chops down Davids in the centre circle. Now Solano fouls Moretti. A bit 'bitty'.. Given hoofs clear
28' Del Piero feeds Moretti on the flank. The leftback crosses, but poorly and Given rises to claim
27' Dyer lies deep for the strike from distance, but balloons it into the air and Shearer is offside as the ball comes back to earth
26' It's Robert - deflected off the wall for a corner
25' Tudor fouls Speed after Montero's half-clearance. Magpies freekick 30 yards out
22' Del Piero cuts inside smashes a left-footer against the bar from 25 yards - Given helpless but the Toon survive
19' Trezeguet, on as a replacement, forces a great tip over from Given. The Frenchman is at the far post for the corner but can't keep his effort down
16' Di Vaio is stretchered away - that looked very ugly and the striker will certainly require hospital attention
13' Di Vaio goes crashing to the floor after a clash of heads with O'Brien.
11' Now Davids get round the back on the Juve left. Dabizas clears behind before Given rises to claim Del Piero's corner
9' Shearer free at the far post for Solano's deep cross - but the former England captain thuds the ball into the turf and it loops high and wide

6' Robert takes a speculative shot, almost catching Buffon out but the ball's just over...
5' Di Vaio runs strongly at the heart of the defence, beating Dabizas - then screams for a penalty but nothing given

2' From the corner Davids heads clear at the post and Juve clear
2' Dyer causes problems with an early cross - Thuram gets in front of Shearer to block...
