Full-time: And that's it. Newcastle are through. Newcastle were the better team in the first-half, Metalist better in the second. But the Geordies deserved their victory, particularly after being disallowed a couple of goals in the first leg.
90 min+3: The Whitesnake Kharkiv fans are streaming out the ground.
90 min+2: Metalist try and play some proper football. How dare they! They should be lumping it into the box.
90 min: Five minutes of added time.
89 min: Krul is well enough to be booked for time wasting.
A stat for your reading pleasure.
88 min: Cabaye has trotted off to be replaced by Bigirimana. Cristaldo is booked after barging into Krul who looks hurt.
87 min: A corner for Dark Lunacy Kharkiv Willian's volley is slicked towards Krul's near post and he palms it away. Kharkiv really should have scored at least once since Newcastle's goal. Fininho is booked.
85 min: Kharkiv have eased off slightly in the last few minutes. Odd, seeing as they don't have anything to lose by throwing everyone forward.
82 min: Blanco replaces Edmar for Hellhammer Kharkiv.
81 min: Cradle of Filth Kharkiv look forlorn. They finally muster up some decent shots and then Krul pulls off two brilliant saves. Simpson does well to cut out a cross - he does concede the corner though. Marveaux does well to block Jaja's shot.
78 min: Krul has been very good indeed this half. Saving with his body (again) from Cristaldo before diving to his left to save from Cristaldo (again). The second save was brilliant.
76 min: Guttierez and Perch are on for Cisse and Anita. "We’re now at that point in the game where we’re one up and I can’t stay still and feel like I’m going to see my dinner again," says Richard Slassor.
75 min: Yellow for Cisse after he pushed Cristaldo, who had kicked out at him. Both players will have to stay in the classroom at lunchtime.
73 min: Hawkwind Kharkiv are definitely increasing the pressure now but Newcastle don't look too flustered.
70 min: Children of Bodom Kharkiv's Willian nearly scores with his first touch! He tries to dink the ball over Krul, who gets enough of his body in the way to save.
68 min: Free-kick to Newcastle. Cabaye's delivery is good this time and Gueye just beats Ameobi to the header. Raising the, er, tone a moment," says Robin Hazlehurst, before lowering it. "Villagra seems to having a big game. One of the team's hard men, with no cock-ups yet. He really should transfer to Malaga in the summer to play alongside their goalkeeper Willy, they'd work really well together. Apparently."
65 min: Willian and Jaja are on for Marlos and Torres. Newcastle deserved that. After lagging towards the end of the first-half they've been the better side in the second. Deep Purple Kharkiv have conceded an away goal and need to attack. And with that, Sosa volleys over.
Ameobi takes. He smacks it to the keeper's right and into the back of the net.
A terrible backpass has Goryainov scrambling and Sissoko gets the ball. Not before the keeper fouls him though.
59 min: A long ball for Cisse to chase. He does very well to get to it and turns the ball into the Epoch of Unlight Kharkiv area but no one can exploit the chance.
57 min: Marveaux nearly opens the scoring. He plays a great one-two and is around six-yards out but instead of hitting it across the keeper he goes for power and it goes high and wide.
55 min: Simpson's excellent cross causes a modicum of panic in the Kharkiv area but they do eventually clear. Marlos charges up the pitch but he's called back for handball.
53 min: Judas Priest Kharkiv's free kick sails over. By the way, this game isn't just a series of bad free-kicks. It's close though.
51 min: Torsiglieri's foul gives Newcastle the free-kick: Cabaye's delivery continues to be dire and it trundles into a Tygers of Pan Tang shin.
50 min: General Surgery Kharkiv – by the way: General Surgery? That's no kind of name for a metal band, it just sounds like a useful medical service – knock a long ball forward and claim Marlos was fouled as he ran into the box but the ref waves play on. Correctly.
48 min: Marlos goes on a thrilling run down the right and gets his cross in. Krul has to dive to gather.
46 min:Fleshgod Apocalypse Kharkiv (name courtesy of Graeme Hull. Thanks, Graeme) gets things started. I'm hoping Newcastle score in this game because I'm supposed to be doing the Liverpool game at 8.05pm and typing two MBMs simultaneously will be very tricky indeed.
Just in case you were wondering what Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live sound like, here they are. Not to sound old but it's just noise: you want something you can tap your feet toe in my opinion. Like Skid Row.
Half-time: Just one added minute to round off the half. Newcastle started very well but as Kharkiv - who've been on their winter break - warmed up they came to dominate and have had the better chances. "Skid Row! Yes! Now we're talking," whoops Matt Dony. "That one reference has got me excited about a nondescript European B-League clash. Youth Gone Wild!"
45 min: Behead the Prophet No Lord Shall Live Kharkiv mount an attack towards the end of the half and Haidara picks up a yellow after bringing down Villagra who has become more dangerous as the game has progressed. Sosa takes to the right of the area – it takes a diving header to clear the danger.
44 min: Great chance for Newcastle. Good work from Ameobi to hold the ball up but Cisse's first shot forces a parry from the keeper before a second one which he gathers cleanly.
42 min: Newcastle manage to relieve the pressure and spread it across midfield. "Re: Ryan Dunne (26 min). Professor X as team manager? Of the XI-Men? Would that mean Fergie becomes the Magneto of the English Premier League, or would they be locked in mind games beyond the understanding of us mere mortals," wonders Derrick Cameron.
40 min: No one bothers to mark Cristaldo but he only manages to plop it onto Yanga-Mbiwa's back. Kharkiv could have scored a couple in the last 10 minutes.
38 min: Skid Row Kharkiv mount another attack. They're getting plenty of crosses in and Sosa's shot is deflected for a corner.
36 min: Sosa beats three or four men, even if it is in his own half, it's still lovely skill. Newcastle are not the composed team they were 10 minutes ago.
34 min: That header has pepped up Anvil Kharkiv no end. Villagra sends in a horrible cross for Newcastle to deal with and Newcastle it's only just cleared. Then Sosa tries his luck from distance but it apologises itself wide. "I'm really disappointed with Alan Pardew, yeah Mentalist was good but surely he missed a sitter by not calling Villagra 'little blue pill' or something," guffaws Raymond King. "Imagine the fun we could have had with that one!" Fun in what sense of the word?
31 min: Best chance of the game and it's to the home side. Cristaldo has a clear header but sends it inches wide. I really hpe Kevin Porter has these translations right and hasn't slipped in some Ukrainian swear words in to the MBM: "Given Alan Pardew's inadvertent insult, Myron Markevych, the Metalist manager, might be justified in calling Newcastle United not 'soroki' the Magpies but 'poroki' the vices, faults or sins or more loosely 'the defectives'."
29 min: A decent delivery from Cabaye once and Goryainov has to stretch backwards to punch clear. Except because he's leaning backwards we can forget about the "clear" bit. Newcastle can't exploit the opening though.
26 min:Corner to Newcastle but there was a Newcastle foul in the area. I was wondering where Ryan Dunne was and Slayer Kharkiv get the ball away. Here's Ryan Dunne: "Although 'mentalism' has the Partridge-popularised meaning of 'crazy' couldn't it also be used to describe Derren Brown types? Or what about Professor X - He'd be a good manager.
24 min: Villagra delivers the worst cross of all time. That is all. Here's our Ukrainian TV correspondent, Robin Hazlehurst: "Ukranian TV is pretty much a definition of pointless. We can get it here and the only programme worth a look was 'Naked and Funny' , which turned out to be neither. If the Kharkiv players have been watching that all winter they'll be so frustrated that Newcastle had better watch out."
21 min: Coloccini attempts a backheeled clearance in his own area. Luckily for him it just about comes off. "Great picture and caption, Tom," says Simon Mcmahon. "I'm sure the Newcastle fans will be comforted by the fact that, should they go out tonight, at least we'll have another chance to wheel out the Metalist riff in the next round." It's the unfunny riff that just keeps on giving, Simon.
19 min: A corner! The first of the game. It's to Newcastle too. Yanga-Mbiwa's cross eludes Newcastle and Kharkiv heads alike.
18 min: …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (not technically metal but sounds like one) Kharkiv nearly go 1-0 down. Sissoko strides onto a through ball and cuts diagonally into the box – his shot is straight at Goryainov. Newcastle have had a lot of possession and no decent shots to show for it.
15 min: Villagra's tackle is later than Richard III and Marveaux is in some pain. Haidara is then fouled – don't give Cabaye the ball! – they do though and the free-kick is cleared.
13 min: Metallica Kharkiv have a semi-attack but it's easily repelled and Newcastle win a free-kick, through Marveaux, about 30-yards out. More poor delivery from Cabaye though and the keeper claims it easily. Kharkiv then have a free-kick of their own: Xavier decides he can beat Krul from 5km out. Guess what? He can't.
10 min: Newcastle look very confident indeed so far – they've been calm on the ball and enjoyed more possession, zipping the ball across the pitch. Marveaux is caught offside in the Kharkiv area. "I can't be the only person who mentally throws the rock & roll devil horns every time I see the name Metalist Kharkiv, can I?", asks Daniel Strauss. Nope there are at least two of us – try typing with one hand.
8 min: Megadeth Kharkiv have been training in the UAE, meaning Newcastle are actually probably more used to the bitter conditions. Yanga-Mbiwa looks shaky after being caught by an accidental elbow but dusts himself down and is OK to continue.
5 min: A superb atmosphere in the stadium, which was a venue for Euro 2012. Ameobi is pulled to the floor as he chests the ball down and Cabaye takes the free-kick around 45-yards out. He floats the ball in but it's cleared by a defender's head.
3 min: Newcastle get off to a positive start. Ameobi plays a useful ball into the box and it's a panick clearance from Whitesnake Kharkiv.
1 min: And we're off. Bad news for the holders, Atletico: they're 2-0 down on aggregate with time running out against Rubin Kazan. I wonder if they've been distracted by their attempts to get in the Champions League. "I noticed that Alan Pardew calling his opponents Mentalist too," says Will Beckman. "I imagine that sorted out the Metalist manager's pre-match team talk out: 'look, their manager has been calling us Mentalists. Destroy them.'"
Here's a tweet on the trouble reported at the Metalist game.
There have been reports of trouble involving fans outside the ground: no more details as yet but I'll keep you posted when/if I get more details.
Alan Pardew does call them "Mentalist" in this video, right?
Cheick Tiote misses out through illness, while Davide Santon, Steven Taylor, Jonas Gutierrez and Gabriel Obertan also make way for debutant Massadio Haidara, Danny Simpson, Vurnon Anita, Sylvain Marveaux and Shola Ameobi.
Metalist are unchanged from the first leg.
FC Metalist Kharkiv: Goryainov, Villagra, Gueye, Torsiglieri, Fininho, Torres, Edmar, Marlos, Cleiton Xavier, Sosa, Cristaldo. Subs: Disljenkovic, Berezovchuk, Shelayev, Blanco, Krasnopyorov,
Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Haidara, Sissoko, Anita, Cabaye, Marveaux, Shola Ameobi, Cisse. Subs: Elliot, Perch, Gosling, Gutierrez, Bigirimana, Obertan, Steven Taylor.
Referee: Serge Gumienny (Belgium)
So, a score draw or even – heavens be praised – a victory will put Newcastle through tonight. The only problem is that Newcastle's away form is woeful, they've won once away from St James' Park in the league, and Kharkiv is pretty far from home. Oh, and Newcastle haven't won any of their last five European games. Oh, and Metalist have won seven of their last 11 European home games. Oh, and Hatem Ben Arfa has returned to training after a hamstring injury but Alan Pardew doesn't think he's ready to start, while Davide Santon has been rested. Still, Metalist are in the middle of their winter break so they may be a little tired after a few weeks at Kiev Butlins and watching Ukrainian Pointless on Ukrainian iPlayer.
