Newcastle Unitedâ€™s Europa League dream has been ended by Portuguese powerhouse Benfica.
The Toon trailed 3-1 going into the second leg at St Jamesâ€™ Park but were unable to win by two clear goals, conceding late to be held to a 1-1 draw and losing 4-2 on aggregate.
Papiss Cisse, who had two earlier goals ruled offside, edged Newcastle ahead in the 71st minute when he headed home Shola Ameobiâ€™s cross from close range.
The chances kept coming, especially as Newcastle chased a second goal but in the end it was their downfall as Benfica pounced in injury-time with substitute Rodrgio picking out Eduardo Salvio who slotted home at the death.
