90' + 4'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Inter Escaldes and Dundalk.

A huige win for Dundalk as David McMillan's first-half opener is enough for the Lilywhites to go through. They will now play Sheriff Tiraspol next week in the Europa League Third Qualifying Round.. Andrew Dempsey over and out. The match report will be online shortly! 

90' + 3'

Yellow Card

Genis Soldevila Solduga (Inter Escaldes) is booked.

90' + 2'

Dundalk survive a huge scare as GHary Rogers latches onto a scuffed shot on goal - the Lilywhites looked in a spot of bother there...

90'

We are now into injury time. No indication yet of how long is left....

89'

Dundalk are still passing and playing their way out of trouble - they have looked quite comfortable for the most part despite being a man down since the hour mark. I'm still at a loss to explain Boyle's red however...

88'

Free Kick

Marc Pujol(Inter Escaldes) takes a free-kick.

86'

Substitution

Óscar Reyes (in) - Jordi Rubio (out) (Inter Escaldes).

85'

CLOSE FOR INTER! 

It's that man Solevilla again as he somehow heads over the bar after an excellent ball in from the right found the left sided winger.. 

As I type, Sean Gannon goes on a long run but he can't get a shot on goal...

82'

Substitution

Jordi Roca Grau (in) - Sergio Moreno (out) (Inter Escaldes).

81'

Since the red card, Dundalk have managed the game quite well - Inter Club have rarely looked like troubling Gary Rogers' goal... They still have a job to complete however...

78'

Substitution

Bruninho Bruninho (in) - Jordi Betriu Armengol (out) (Inter Escaldes).

76'

Free Kick

Darragh Leahy(Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

75'

CLOSE FOR INTER! 

Soldevilla puts a great ball into the box but there is nobody there to convert the effort on goal. That was a real let-off for Dundalk on that occasion...

73'

Following Boyle's red card, Sean Gannon has gone into full-back while Sean Hoare has moved into the centre of defence - Greg Sloggett is now pushing further forward in midfield with John Mountney on the right of the midfield...

70'

Substitution

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

69'

Substitution

John Mountney (in) - Sean Murray (out) (Dundalk).

68'

Corner Kick

Michael Duffy(Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

67'

Free Kick

Michael Duffy(Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

Duffy's free-kick finds Brian Gartland and his header is tipped over the bar... Dundalk are still pushing forward despite being a man down

65'

Yellow Card

Jordi Rubio (Inter Escaldes) is booked.

64'

Corner Kick

Michael Duffy(Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

63'

Still plenty of discussion going on regarding the dismisal of Andy Boyle. His first yellow card was harsh to say the least and that latest booking was something similar. Regardless, they should have enough in them to win this...

62'

60'

Substitution

Sean Gannon (in) - Stefan Colovic (out) (Dundalk).

58'

Second Yellow & Red Card

Andy Boyle (Dundalk) receives a second yellow card and is sent off.

Andy Boyle has been sent off and I'm not exactly sure what it was for.. The Andorrans have been involved in some niggly fouls and have been going down quite easily at times. Going by the Dundalk reaction I assume there wasn't much in that at all...

56'

Yellow Card

Albert Reyes (Inter Escaldes) is booked.

56'

Yellow Card

Óscar Reyes (Inter Escaldes) is booked.

55'

Yellow Card

Greg Sloggett (Dundalk) is booked.

54'

HUGE PENALTY SHOUT! 

There a major shouts for a Dundalk penalty as David McMillan looked to have been bundled over by a Inter defender. I'm not too sure about that one not being given there.... It looked pretty clear cut from my stream...

54'

Dundalk once again push forward as Sean Murray's shot is delflected wide of the Inter Escaldes goal. Dundalk will need a second sooner rather than later...

52'

Yellow Card

Chris Shields (Dundalk) is booked.

50'

Free Kick

Stefan Colovic(Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

49'

Corner Kick

Stefan Colovic(Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

As expected, neither side has made a change from the first-half as Dundalk continue to push forward and pose questions of this Inter Club d'Escaldes side...

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Inter Escaldes and Dundalk has started.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Inter Escaldes and Dundalk.

Dundalk head into the break a goal ahead and they are more than value for their lead so far. They should be at least 2-0 up however. They will be hopeful that they can grab that all-important early on in the second half to make sure of this win...

45' + 1'

Murray's free-kick hits off the Inter Club d'Escaldes post! Dundalk can't seem to find this second goal...

33'

Free Kick

28'

Free Kick

Jordi Rubio(Inter Escaldes) takes a free-kick.

27'

Corner Kick

Stefan Colovic(Dundalk) takes a corner-kick.

26'

Inter Club d'Escaldes Marc Pujol has looked a danger so far for the hosts, although he hasn't done an awful lot so far anyway...

23'

The pitch is looking in great nick this evening in Andorra - and it is aiding the Lilywhites cause quite significantly... Filippo Giovangnoli will be pleased with his side's efforts so far!

20'

Close again for Dundalk! 

Michael Duffy once again gets in behind on the left-flank, before firing the ball across the face of goal. McMillan was there but he could not get his foot on the ball to turn it home... A second will do Dundalk the world of good here...

18'

Dundalk have not had to come out of second gear yet and have made light work of the Andorrans so fra. As I type, Michael Duffy goes on a great run but he pulls his shot wide of goal.. That could have been a second for Giovagnoli's side...

15'

ASSIST!

Michael Duffy(Dundalk) provides the assist.

14'

GOAL!

David McMillan (Dundalk) scores.

DUNDALK TAKE THE LEAD!

11'

Free Kick

Darragh Leahy(Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

Greg Sloggett heads wide Leahy's set-piece as the Andorrans begin to look slightly ragged over the past few minutes. Both Michael Duffy and Stefan Colovic have had plenty of joy down the wings so far...

10'

Yellow Card

Sergio Moreno (Inter Escaldes) is booked.

8'

Dave McMillan heads wide after a cross from the right grazes his head but the ex-UCD forward can't steer it on target...

7'

Dundalk have now started to push the Andorrans back into their own half - they are as expected lining out in a 4-2-3-1 shape with David McMillan leading the line...

5'

Free Kick

Chris Shields(Dundalk) takes a free-kick.

3'

A quiet enough start welcomes the game onto our screens - the Andorrans have had much of the early ball and play without looking too dangerous at all so far....

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Inter Escaldes and Dundalk has kicked off.

0'

And the teams are now both on the field of play at Estadi Communal - can Dundalk go through? Should they win, they will take on Moldovans Sheriff Tiraspol in their Third Qualifying Round game next week - if they lose, they will play Cork City on Sunday....

0'

KO is just moments away in Andorra - Dundalk fans, how are the nerves? 

0'

And now we have both lineups in - Inter Club d'Escaldes have made five changes from their last EUropean tie against Kosovans FC Drita - and there is no place for Andorran international Christian Martinez at all in the squad. Martinez scored against Ireland back in 2010 for Andorra.. KO is not far away! 

0'

Inter Club d’Escaldes have never played in the Europa League or UEFA Cup before, with their first European bow coming last month against Kosovan champions FC Drita.

Dundalk have failed to score in their previous four European ties away from home in both the Europa and Champions League.

Levadia Tallinn were the last side to lose to the Lilywhites in European competition – with FC Riga drawing both games as they lost on penalties to the Vinny Perth managed side last year.

Just the one change for Dundalk as Gary Rogers comes in for Aaron McCarey in between the sticks for the Lilywhites. We are still waiting for news of Inter Club d'Escaldes starting XI
