Not long to go now for Town to get back in this.

Sub

Lowe comes off and Edmonds-Green comes on.

Nearly 2

Almost a second for Bremen as Kongolo is beaten for space but it’s over the bar...not by much.

Ramadan on

Final 20 mins for Ramadan who comes on for Quaner.

GOAL BREMEN

Bremen curl in the free kick from 20 yards, left side of the area, into the top corner. Lovely goal.

Williams goes into the book for a sliding challenge on the edge of the area from behind.

Town have the ball in the net but the ref penalises Town for a push in the build-up.

Flo shot

Curling right footed effort by Flo but it’s straight into the hands of the goalkeeper.

Depoitre chance

Good chance for Depoitre from a low corner into the box but he completely misses his kick.

Second game

Just one change by Wagner, Williams comes in for Sabiri.

It’s Huddersfield v Werder Bremen

FT Town 0 Real Betis 2

That’s it then and a defeat for Town.

Two mistakes cost them, unfortunately.

Had a few good chances at the other end but it’s the Spanish side who prove the more clinical.

Chance

Lovely move by Town almost finished by Sabiri with a goal but he stabs his effort across goal and wide.

Chance

Sabiri guides the ball onto the bar and he can’t turn in the rebound from close range.

Another good chance for Town.

GOAL BETIS

It’s a second for Betis with a shot from 20 yards fumbled into the net by Coleman.

It’s not been his day I’m afraid

Coleman error

Coleman won’t want to see that again.

He misjudged a ball over the top and the Betis player lobbed him first time from 30 yards.

GOAL BETIS

Betis take the lead!

Kongolo

Brilliant last ditch defending by Kongolo to deny Betis.

Intruders!

Two fans take to the field and take their shirts off - but the stewards are quickly on to them and they’re given a cheer as they are shepherded away.

If it's a draw

There will be a penalty shoot out if there’s a draw in any of the games today....

Chance!

Quaner played though on goal but he takes a fraction too long and the chance goes begging.

Overhit....again!

Lowe tries to pick out Quaner but again the ball forward is slightly overhit.

Overhit

Flo does well down the right, creating space, but he cuts in and overhits the cross. It’s out for a goal kick. Good chance for Town there.

Betis corner

Good interception by Kongolo sees the ball roll our for a corner to Betis on the far side.

Long ball

Kongolo tries to pick out Lowe down the left flank but it’s ovehit by the centre back and out for a goal kick.

Half chance

O’Brien ends up whipping the ball in from the right but the keeper comfortably claims.
