Commentary
  • 90'

    There will be five minutes added on.

  • 90'

    Winks with an attempted shot which is weaker than most back passes.

  • 90'

    Poor from Lo Celso. Corner but he over-hits it as Leipzig are just about home now.

  • 90'

    YELLOW CARD for Lamela.

  • 90'

    FULL TIME! 0-1. Leipzig take a massive step towards advancing with a cracking performance. Spurs were quite pathetic for 70 minutes until they went behind. Mourinho may have some questions thrown his way after that lackluster performance.

  • 89'

    Spurs putting real pressure on Leipzig now. Moura gets up for a header but it is well over.

  • 86'

    Lamela with a cracking effort this time from a free kick but Gulacsi is up to the task once again.

  • 84'

    Aurier with another poor ball into the box. The right back has not had his best match.

  • 83'

    SUB for Leipzig - Forsberg is on for Laimer who left the field with a shoulder injury.

  • 80'

    Ndombele and Lamela have definitely made a huge difference to Spurs.10 minutes to go.

  • 77'

    SUB for Leipzig - Schick has made way for Poulsen.

  • 75'

    Spurs have upped the intensity now and the crowd are starting to sing. Can they pull this tie back in the final 15 minutes?

  • 73'

    LO Celso smashes it beautifully and a marvelous save from Gulacsi keeps it at 0-1.

  • 72'

    YELLOW CARD for Nkunku for a foul just outside his own box on Lo Celso. Can Spurs make this count?

  • 70'

    Leipzig happy to just hold onto the ball now but they will want that second goal.

  • 67'

    Spurs pushing forward now, one wonders why this only happens when they go behind. Son and Kane's injuries have played a role but Mourinho will have some tough questions to answer.

  • 64'

    SUBS for Spurs - Alli and Ferdnades off and on comes Ndombele and Lamela.

  • 62'

    CHANCE! It should be 2-0 but Lloris pulls off a glorious save from Schick. He should really be scoring but Lloris has kept Spurs in this tie.

  • 61'

    Lo Celso with a long range effort. It's on target but Gulacsi is well behind it.

  • 58'

    GOAL! LEIPZIG! WERNER! 0-1. Werner smashes it home and Leipzig lead away from home. No more than they deserve, Spurs have been atrocious.

  • 56'

    PENALTY! Ben Davies with a ridiculous challenge in the box. He doesn't even get close to the ball. Yellow card too.

  • 54'

    Leipzig are putting huge pressure on Spurs in possession and the hosts just can't deal with it.

  • 51'

    Aurier gives the ball away again and is forced to commit a foul just outside his box. Nothing comes of it for Leipzig as the ball sails high over Lloris.

  • 48'

    Better from Spurs as Moura sneaks in at the near post. Good save.

  • 46'

    KICK OFF! 0-0. The second half is underway! Can Spurs improve sufficiently to pose a threat to the Germans?

  • 45'

    Fernandes losing the ball in midfield and Angelino runs straight at Spurs defence, which keeps backing off. Fortunately for the hosts he slips before he can get his shot away.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME! 0-0. We are level at the break but Leipzig will wonder how it is possible. They should be a goal up, probably two. Spurs have been poor with a midfield that is almost non existent. Mourinho better have a good half time chat.

  • 42'

    Sanchez with another good tackle to deny Werner. Corner to Leipzig but nothing comes of it.

  • 41'

    Angelino with a storming run down the left but his low cross to an unmarked Werner is cut out by Sanchez.

  • 39'

    Fernandes with a brilliant cross but Alli miss times his jump at the near post.

  • 36'

    CHANCE! Werner is in acres of space but takes far too many touches and his shot is well saved by Lloris. He should have tucked that away with his second touch.

  • 33'

    YELLOW CARD - Werner is into the book for a late challenge on Winks.

  • 32'

    Spurs win a corner and the second ball falls to Fernades on the angle. He has to hit it first time on the half volley and it goes well over the bar. Tough chance though.

  • 30'

    Bergwijn gets Spurs on the front foot with a good run but Aurier hands the ball straight back to Leipzig. The visitors counter and win a corner.

  • 27'

    Superb build-up play from Leipzig but Werner has strayed offside. Winks has been nowhere in the match thus far.

  • 25'

    Fernandes comes up with a poor pass just as Spurs have a bit of possession. Vast improvement from the hosts is required.

  • 22'

    Leipzig continue to push Spurs back and the hosts cannot get close to the Germans. It certainly doesn't look like a team who made the final last season.

  • 19'

    Schick with another header, this time it is blocked by Sanches. Surely Spurs cannot keep handing the visitors these opportunities.

  • 16'

    Werner plays a neat pass into the box but Lo Celso reads it well and clears for a corner. Schick gets away from Davies on the corner but heads narrowly wide.

  • 15'

    The match seems to have settled now. Spurs are happy to allow Leipzig possession and try catch them on the counter.

  • 12'

    YELLOW CARD - Sabitzer is into the book for a cynical foul as Spurs were on the counter.

  • 10'

    YELLOW CARD - Lo Celso is the first into the book this evening for a foul on Werner.

  • 9'

    Schick takes on a left footed shot from distance but it is straight at Lloris.

  • 8'

    Brilliant run by Bergwign who tries to curl it beyond Gulacsi but the keeper is up to the challenge. Great start to the match.

  • 7'

    Spurs with the first corner of the match and Lo Celso goes deep but it's too far for Alli.

  • 6'

    Leipzig well on top in the opening stages as Spurs struggle to get out of their own half. The hosts will need to hold onto possession a bit better.

  • 2'

    What a start by Leipzig! They are flying at Spurs and have three opportunities within a minute to go a goal up but Lloris does well while the post also came to the aid of the hosts.

  • 1'
