Although there were no goals scored Newcastle had total domination of the game. With 17 shots on target, one a thunderous free-kick from Milner which smashed into the bar with a crack that could be heard all over Newcastle! (Well not quite, but you get the idea.)

Newcastle had another 15 shots off-target and 12 corners. In comparison Ventspils had only the 1 shot all game, admittedly it was on target, though I bet no one can remember when it was! And Newcastle did not concede a corner.

Definitely the most one-sided 0-0 draw there has ever been...
