- End of E.T 2nd Half
Delort steps up... and his shot goes just wide. The referee has blown up and we're going to penalties.
Comara gives away a free kick a couple of yards outside the box. Heart in mouth time...
Penalties are beckoning. The players look absolutely knackered.
What a save!
Slimani meets a wonderful ball at the far post but Gbohouo makes the save.
M'Bolhi tries to claim the Ivorian corner but drops it. Fortunately for him, Benlamri is on hand to boot it clear.
Gradel does brilliantly down the right, leaving Benlamri in his tracks and squares it towards Bony but Algeria put it behind for a corner.
And that's half-time in extra time. We're 15 minutes away from penalties!
HOW HAS THAT NOT GONE IN!?!
Gradel puts in a corner that causes absolute chaos in the Algeria box. Traore is the last one to get a touch to nudge it towards goal. Zeffane gets it away. It appears as though Feghouli may have handled it but VAR doesn't check.
Gradel - who has arguably been the best player on the park in terms of providing a conistent threat - has another dig from distance but it's just too high and hits the top of the net.
Guedioura makes up fantastic ground to block a shot from Ivorian substitute Cornet.
Belaili nods down a long ball into the path of Feghouli but his first-time effort goes well wide.
Our first half-chance of extra-time.
Ounas chips in a ball towards Slimani but he cannot make clean contact with it.
And we're back!
Thirty minutes of extra-time await to separate these teams - or will it take penalties?
And we're going to extra time. Bounedjah, who missed the penalty, is in pieces on the sidelines.
Zaha wins a free kick on the right after beating Benlamri for pace but Gradel can't craft a goalscoring chance with it.
Ounas goes on a brilliant run, skipping past Gbamin and Coulibaly as though they weren't there but just as it looks as though he will advance into the area and go one-on-one, he checks his run and Ivory Coast get bodies back.
Is VAR drama on the way? Ounas dribbles into the box and goes down... No penalty.
This is surprising. Mahrez has been withdrawn, with five minutes to go plus potentially extra-time. He's come close on a couple of occasion and could have been the difference between the two teams.
Gbohouo's... unorthodox style of goalkeeping comes to the fore again. This time he rushes off his line as Mahrez goes in behind and he cleans the Man City attacker out.
Guedioura unleashes a powerful strike from distance which bounces wickedly in front of Gbohouo but the Ivorian goalkeeper manages to make the save. Are we heading for extra-time?
Belaili has a dig from the edge of the box after some good combination play but his shot goes over.
What a chance!
Gradel picks out Zaha at the far post with an excellent ball. He tries to volley it home but miss-times it and Algeria can breathe. He should have scored there.
Bounedjah slips in Mahrez and it looks as though a right-footed shot from the Man City man is enough to restore Algeria's lead but Bagayoko appears from nowhere to make a goal-saving block.
Bounedjah misses a chance to atone for his penalty miss, with Gbohouo quick off his line to block an effort from the striker, who was played in by a wonderful through ball.
- GoalJonathan KodjiaIvory Coast
Ivory Coast are back on level terms! Kodjia controls a ball from Zaha brilliantly, rides a challenge from Benlamri and blasts a left-footed shot past M'Bolhi and into the bottom corner. Game on!
Feghouli dink a cross to the far post to Bounedjah but his header is saved easily by Gbohouo.
For a second it looked as though Belaili's cross towards Bounedjah might creep inside Gbohouo's post.
Well, it was certainly a breathless start to the second half but things seem to have calmed down now.
What a start to the second half!
Ivory Coast hit the woodwork now as Kodjia's ball across the face of goal takes a nick off Mandi and kisses the top of the bar.
Bounedjah takes it himself and his shot goes over off the top of the bar! He looks distraught and Ivory Coast will have the wind in their sails now.
- Yellow cardSylvain GbohouoIvory Coast
Penalty to Algeria!
Bounedjah goes through clear and is taken out by Gbohouo. Correct decision and a yellow card to the Ivorian goalkeeper.
And we're back! Algeria are 45 minutes from the semi-finals!
Some half-time stats to digest.
And that's half-time. Ivory Coast started well but Algeria took the lead thanks to Feghouli's excellent finish.
We've also seen the soap opera of Bensebaini and Zaha's ongoing battle, so entertainment aplenty.
Gradel has another effort. He and Zaha have switched wings and the Palace winger squares it to the Toulouse man, whose shot from just outside the box is straight at the keeper.
Another chance for Algeria!
That's the closest we've come to a second goal in this match. A terrible pass from Kanon gives the ball to Mahrez, who dribbles into the box before his shot is blocked. Bounedjah seizes on the rebound but his shot is blocked too.
More handbags between Bensebaini and Zaha. This time, the Algeria full-back appears to grab Zaha's arm and pull it towards his face in an effort to try to get the Crystal Palace forward sent off. Absolutely farcical stuff.
Bensebaini's battle with Zaha down the Ivory Coast right will be fascinating now, with both players on a booking.
What a challenge!
Gradel takes down a long ball well but Benlamri is right there to make a wonderful saving tackle.
Sangare heads over from a corner. He was unmarked and could have done better there.
- Yellow cardRami BensebainiAlgeria
It's a yellow card to Zaha and a yellow card to Bensebaini - the two players involved in the shoving incident.
On viewing the replay, Benlamri might count himself a little lucky too - he appeared to lash out at Zaha after a legitimate challenge just before the incident, which sparked it all.
Zaha could be in trouble here after shoving an Algeria player to the ground after a dispute. We await the referee's judgement...
Algeria want a penalty!
Atal sprints into the box with a fantastic turn of pace but he can't quite escape the attentions of Kanon, who puts in a robust but fair challenge. A good decision.
After all the positive intent in the early stages from Ivory Coast it's Algeria who take the lead. How will the 2015 champions respond?
- GoalSofiane FeghouliAlgeria
Algeria take the lead. Bensebaini takes advantage of a loose ball after Bagayoko's botched challenge on Bounedjah, advances into the box and squares it to Feghouli, who finishes with aplomb!
Ivory Coast should be a goal up... again.
This time it's Bagayoko on the overlap who pulls the ball back across the face of goal and finds Kanon, who puts it wide from close range when he should have hit the target.
Gradel tries again to bend one in from the left-hand side of the box. This time it's straight at M'Bolhi, who saves.
What a move from Algeria!
Mahrez plays a wonderful give and go with Bounedjah and works himself a yard of space to shoot. However, his effort is dragged wide.
Kessie goes on a decent run down the left but his eventual ball into the box takes a nick off a defender and M'Bolhi gathers easily.
Another big chance to the Ivorians!
Zaha leaves Bensebaini on his backside and squares it for Kodjia, who cannot sort out his feet and apply the finish from six yards out.
Gradel shifts the ball on to his right foot and takes aim. It looks like his effort is going to give his side an early lead but M'Bolhi just gets finger tips to it and tips it on to the post. The rebound came at Kodjia too quickly for the Aston Villa man to react.
Gbohouo looked susceptible from set pieces in Ivory Coast's last-16 win but there are no such problems here as Mahrez's free kick is claimed easily by the goalkeeper.
A robust challenge early on as Kessie goes in late on Feghouli. Algeria have the free kick but that could easily have been a yellow card.
And we're off!
Algeria immediately try to go down the attack on the right but are flagged offside.
We've had the national anthems and we're moments away from kick off!
