  • Into three minutes of second-half stoppage time.

    90
  • Last change for Benfica - Lima ON, Rodrigo OFF.

    87
  • Sherwood is angered by Jorge Jesus' antics on the touchline. The Benfica boss seemed to raise three fingers at the Spurs dugout after that Luisao goal.

    85
  • After Lloris saves a downward Garay header from a free-kick wide on the left, Luisao is first to pounce in the area and he smashes home his second goal of the evening from a tight angle.

    84
  • Last change for Spurs - Bentaleb ON, Sandro OFF.

    80
  • And another change for Spurs - Rose ON, Walker OFF.

    76
  • Substitution for Spurs - Soldado ON, Kane OFF.

    75
  • Almost a howler from Lloris there! The ball bounces over his head at the edge of the area, and Rodrigo looks certain to run on and score - but the France goalkeeper manages to stick out a hand and put it out for a corner.

    74
  • Soldado and Rose being readied by Tottenham.

    73
  • Spurs block a shot from Amorim at the top of the area, then Lennon sprints down the other end before being dispossessed by Fejsa in the box.

    72
  • Eriksen's deep free-kick is nodded across goal by Kaboul but Oblak clutches the ball before it can reach Adebayor.

    71
  • Adebayor is receiving treatment on the touchline.

    67
  • Double change for Benfica - Gaitan and Enzo Perez ON, Cardozo and Sulejmani OFF.

    66
  • Eriksen brings Spurs back into the tie with an excellent free-kick from 20 yards out, curled over the wall and into the top corner, to the right of Oblak. Game on!
