  5. 87

    Last change for Benfica - Lima ON, Rodrigo OFF.

  6. 85

    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.

  7. 84

    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.

    GOAL! Tottenham 1 Benfica 3 (Luisao 84)

  13. 75

    Substitution for Spurs - Soldado ON, Kane OFF.

  14. 74

    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.

  15. 73

    Soldado and Rose being readied by Tottenham.

  16. 72

    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.

  17. 71

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

  18. 67

    Adebayor is receiving treatment on the touchline.

  19. 66

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

    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!
