FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Dundalk and KI Klaksvik.

BRAVO BRAVO! DUNDALK ARE THROUGH THE EUROPA LEAGUE GROUP STAGES! 

Dundalk's Italian job has been vindicated as the Lilywhites defeat KI Klaksvik in the Europa League Playoffs. Daniel Kelly sealed the deal for Giovagnoli's charges after KI had got right back in the game to make it 2-1. Congratulations to Dundalk and that's me Andrew Dempsey over and out for tonight. Dave Donnelly will have a report online shortly and we will try to have as much post-match reaction as possible! 3-1 Dundalk, that is all!

There will be FOUR minutes of added time as the Lilywhites are just moments away from victory! What a night this has been for Filippo Giovagnoli's side! 

90'

88'

KI's Midtskogen lets out a huge roar of frustration as his pass out to the left-flank goes out of play. The rain is coming down even more heavily now as the Lilywhites look all but set to reach the Europa League Group Stages! 

87'

Substitution

Jonn Johannesen (in) - Deni Pavlovic (out) (KI Klaksvik).

86'

KI are getting a sub ready as Jonn Johannessen gets ready to come on....

84'

Yellow Card

Daniel Kelly (Dundalk) is booked.

83'

Corner Kick

Michael Duffy (Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

81'

Another big save from Gary Rogers to keep the gap at two goals, turning a close-range effort from Odmar Faero over the bar. Fine margins in this game and Dundalk lead by two, somehow! 

81'

Substitution

John Mountney (in) - Patrick McEleney (out) (Dundalk).

79'

ASSIST!

Sean Murray (Dundalk) provides the assist.

79'

GOAL!

Daniel Kelly (Dundalk) scores.

GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLL DUNDALKKKKK! 3-1 TO THE LILYWHITES! 

Daniel Kelly pokes home after the Lilywhites break from a KI attack. Sean Murray found Kelly free on the counter who made no mistake slotting home past Kristian Joensen. Is that it now? 

76'

Gary Rogers was forced into making an impromptu save from Joannes Bjartalio's long-range sighter as Dundalk continue to look rattled. They badly need a third to take back control of the game 

75'

Free Kick

Darragh Leahy (Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

73'

Dundalk still appear to be on the ropes a bit at this stage of the game. How would they love another just to calm their nerves?

Corner Kick

Joannes Bjartalid (KI Klaksvik) takes a corner-kick.

71'

Substitution

David McMillan (in) - Patrick Hoban (out) (Dundalk).

71'

Substitution

Daniel Kelly (in) - Stefan Colovic (out) (Dundalk).

70'

Nearly a calamity for KI as Kristian Joensen's goal-kick only reaches Michael Duffy. Duffy however scuffs his shot and Jensen saves easily enough in the end...

67'

Yellow Card

Patrick Hoban (Dundalk) is booked.

66'

ASSIST!

Patrik Johannesen (KI Klaksvik) provides the assist.

66'

GOAL!

Ole Erik Midtskogen (KI Klaksvik) scores.

KI WITH A LIFELINE! I said this game was far from over and I am proven correct as Midtskogen fires home from outside the penalty area to leave Gary Rogers with no chance in the Dundalk goal. The game is well and truly back on now! 2-1 Dundalk...

63'

CLOSE AGAIN FOR KI! 

Jesper Brinck's cross finds sub Boris Dosljak at the back post but the substitute can't get his shot on target as Gary Rogers berates his Dundalk defence for falling asleep again. This may not be over just yet....

62'

59'

OFF THE LINE! 

Brian Gartland heads Jakup Andreasen's shot from inside the six-yard off the line as Dundalk went to sleep momentarily. KI, despite being poor, are not out of this going by that last few minutes or so...

58'

KI with their first shot on target of the game as Patrik Johannessen forces a routine stop from Gary Rogers in the Dundalk goal! 

56'

Patrick McEleney finds Michael Duffy free on the left-wing. Duffy, cuts in, and then out before shooting straight at Kristian Joensen in the KI goal. Duffy is looking menacing at the start of the second period it must be said...

55'

Substitution

Boris Dosljak (in) - Pall Klettskard (out) (KI Klaksvik).

53'

Sean Hoare finds Stefan Colovic down the right-flank but Colovic's cross into the box is collected by Krisitian Joensen who makes amends, somewhat, for his mistake earlier on....

51'

As the rain teams down at the Aviva Stadium - Dundalk have looked a different animal to that of the first 20-25 minutes... Dundalk and the rain in Europe, eh? 

48'

ASSIST!

Patrick Hoban (Dundalk) provides the assist.

48'

GOAL!

Daniel Cleary (Dundalk) scores.

2-0 DUNDALKKKKKKKK! Daniel Cleary smahes home in  at the back post after Patrick Hoban headed Michael Duffy's corner-kick back into danger. Colovic may have got a sloight touch on it but it matters little as Cleary made no mistake at the near post. 2-0 to Dundalk, and they are now well in control of this game! 

48'

Corner Kick

Michael Duffy (Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

46'

Free Kick

Joannes Bjartalid (KI Klaksvik) takes a free-kick.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Dundalk and KI Klaksvik has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Dundalk and KI Klaksvik.

There has been no added time as Dundalk go in at the break a goal up thanks to Sean Murray's header. Murray headed home after a knock-down from Patrick Hoban who got on the end of Sean Hoare's long diagonal ball. Deserved? Maybe, but they can certainly do more if they want to this evening. I'll be back soon... 

43'

Ole Erik Midtsogen heads wide after a ball found its way to the forward from the left-flank - KI have offered very little going forward in this half so far...

40'

Corner Kick

Stefan Colovic (Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

Colovic's corner doesn't really trouble the KI defence but the ball falls out to Sean Murray who just fires wide from about 30-35 yards out. The Lilywhites have really impressed in the last few minutes of the game

37'

Dundalk's Brian Gartland and Greg Sloggett do superbly well to stop KI's Ole Erik Midtskogen who looked for all the world that he was going to get in and trouble the Dundalk defence...  

35'

Apologies for the brief loss of updates - My internet went momentarily but it came back just in time for Sean Murray to score Dundalk's opener... 1-0 to the Lilywhites! 

33'

ASSIST!

Patrick Hoban (Dundalk) provides the assist.

33'

GOAL!

Sean Murray (Dundalk) scores.

DUNDALK TAKE THE LEAD! Sean Murray heads home after a headed effort back into danger from Patrick Hoban after a Sean Hoare cross from deep and the former Watford man made no mistake in heading home past Kristian Joensen. What a crucial goal that may prove to be! 

27'

Corner Kick

Stefan Colovic (Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

Colovic fails to beat the first man and KI clear with relative ease it must be said.. Dundalk are growing into the game now

26'

Free Kick

Michael Duffy (Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

Hoban goes close but his glancing header just escapes the post - he went close to giving his side the lead there! 

24'

Darragh Leahy attempts a one-two with Michael Duffy but Duffy is not quick enough and the ball goes out of play for a goal-kick... 

22'

Darragh Leahy and Joannes Danielsen have a bit of a clash of heads but both are OK to continue. Not an awful lot happening at the moment... 

19'

After a quick enough start, the game has begun to slow down a little - Stefan Colovic tries to change that however but he runs out of space on the byline as KI hold firm of yet another Dundalk attack. You get the feeling one goal may be enough to win this at this rate...

16'

Corner Kick

Joannes Bjartalid (KI Klaksvik) takes a corner-kick.

Patrick Hoban heads clear but takes a knock for his troubles... He is OK to continue however. 

14'

Brian Gartland attempts to find Michael Duffy free on the left flank for Dundalk but the ex-Monaghan United defender's ball had too much on it, and the ball goes harmlessly out for a throw-in...

12'

10'

Despite what UEFA said in the teamsheet, it looks as if the Faroes have opted for a 4-4-2 rather than a 3-4-3. Joannes Danielsen is operating as a right-back at the moment

7'

Stefan Colovic once again causes a bit of trouble in the KI defence with a cross into the penalty area but they clear well under some pressure from Patrick Hoban - Dundalk have started well to be fair to them..

5'

Patrick McEleney forces a good save from Kristian Joensen from long-range as the Lilywhites start to up the ante after a quick start of sorts from the Faroes...

3'

Plenty of early shouting and intensity on display from both side's at the Aviva Stadium - and as I type Sean Hoare heads away from a KI Klaksvik attack. Seconds after Patrick Hoban heads wide from a Stefan Colovic cross into the box! 

2'

Free Kick

Joannes Bjartalid (KI Klaksvik) takes a free-kick.

And here are the teams out on the pitch as Dundalk get set to take on Faroese KI Klaksvik at the Aviva Stadium - What a night awaits us in Dublin 4!

The warmups have now completed - with the PA announcer blasting out the names of the players to an empty Aviva Stadium - The echo coming from the PA was deafening it must be said. KO is under 15 minutes away! Predictions anyone? You are welcome to get in touch with me @AndrewDempsey98 throughout the game this evening or else you can get in touch with HQ @ExtratimeNews

Dundalk have only won once in any of their previous five visits to the Aviva Stadium, with their most recent win at the Lansdowne Road venue coming over Cork City in the 2018 FAI Cup Final.

KI Klaksvik are unbeaten in their previous eight league games – with their last defeat coming on July 12th against B36 Torshavn.

However, KI are second in the Faroese top-flight to HB Torshavn, trailing HB by seven points, although they have in fact played a game less than their title rivals.

KÍ’ had won 17 of their 18 league titles by 1999 but failed to win their 18th until 2019. This 20-year drought saw them overtaken by HB as the most successful domestic side in Faroese football. 

By defeating Dinamo Tbilisi 6-1 in the previous round they became the first Faroese team to reach the Europa League Playoff Round - here is Ryan Kilbane's excellent piece on who KI exactly are ahead of this evening's game!

KI are also unchanged from their win over Dinamo Tbilisi last week - and they have gone for a 3-4-3 formation. Pall Klettskard - who scored three last week starts for the Faroese, KO in just under an hours time! How are the nerves Dundalk fans? 

0'

And the teams for the Faroes are in now - with Mikkjal Thomassen opting for a 3-4-3 shape, as Pall Klettskard leads the line for the visitors..

Two changes for Dundalk from their win over Sheriff Tiraspol last week - with Patrick McEleney coming in for the suspended Chris Shields, while Stefan Colovic comes in for the injured Sean Gannon.

Here we are at the Aviva Stadium as Dundalk take on Faroese side KI Klaksvik in the Europa League Play-Off round. 

Andrew Dempsey in position here for Extratime.com as the Lilywhites and Filippo Giovagnoli look to bring Europa League Group Stages football back to the club after a four-year hiatus. 

What a night we have in store in Dublin 4!
