    Time:90'
    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • Real Madrid
    • 90'+3 There goes the final whistle! All over at White Hart Lane and as expected Real Madrid march into the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 1-0 win on the night, 5-0 on aggregate.
    • 90'+1 Granero fires a free-kick over the bar as the clock ticks down.
    • 90' Three minutes of added time to be played.
    • 88' Ronaldo has now scored 73 goals in 80 competitive games with Real Madrid.
    • 87' Van der Vaart nearly provides on! Great turn and shot from the Dutchman, but it's just over the bar!
    • 85' Spurs have done well tonight though. No shame at all in a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid.
    • 83' So, unsurprisingly, no miracles tonight, either here or in Gelsenkirchen.
    • 82' Spurs make one last change as Kranjcar replaces Modric.
    • 79' Granero is shown a yellow card.
    • 78' Marcelo attempts an audacious chip from the edge of the box with Gomes way off his line! But his effort lands on the top of the net!
    • 76' Ozil centres as Real break quickly, but Assou-Ekotto is there to clear for Spurs.
    • 75' One of the big disappointments for Spurs tonight has been Van der Vaart - he's been totally anonymous.
    • 74' Alonso is now brought off as Benzema is introduced.
    • 72' Fabio Capello is at White Hart Lane tonight.
    • 71' It looks like we have a semi-final line-up then, with Madrid to play Barcelona and Manchester United to meet Schalke, barring an almighty turnaround in the last 20 minutes in Germany. Schalke v Inter
    • 70' Spurs make another change as Huddlestone is replaced by Sandro.
    • 67' Kaka! Ooh! The Brazilian tries his luck from outside the box and only an out-stretched arm from Gomes denies him!
    • 66' Khedira runs through the Spurs defence before falling the ground... no penalty!
    • 65' Off goes Ronaldo, another on a yellow card. And coming on to replace him is Kaka. Not a bad player to have on the bench.
    • 64' Here goes Corluka on a rare sortie forward... but Marcelo stops him in his tracks.
    • 63' Defoe! Oooh! A great shot from outside the box from the sub is matched by an equally impressive save by Casillas!
    • 62' Madrid should just see this one out now but Spurs are not going to give up just yet.
    • 61' Alonso has a bloodied mouth here and he will have to go off for a spot of treatment.
    • 60' Spurs make a change now: Lennon off, Defoe on.
    • 58' Pavlyuchenko should score here! He rises, salmon-like, to power a header goalwards, but Casillas isn't even tested and the ball flies over the bar!
    • 57' With the tie wrapped up, Mourinho withdraws Sergio Ramos, with Granero coming on to replace the man with a yellow card.
    • 56' Van der Vaart swings over a corner kick, but it's far too close to Casillas who claims easily.
    • 55' Ramos goes down under a challenge from Huddlestone. The Spain international stays down but he'll be okay to continue.
    • 53' That goal really has spoiled the atmosphere in White Hart Lane. It's gone dead for the moment and only the chants of the Real Madrid fans can be heard.
    • 52' What it means though is that this tie is over. No way back for Spurs now, if indeed there ever was one.
    • 51' That goal sums up both players involved really: brilliant, swerving shot from Ronaldo and a howler from Gomes.
    • 50' GOAL! RONALDO! It's a massive howler from Gomes though as he lets the Portuguese's stinging shot from outside the box slip through his hands and into the back of the net!
    • 48' Paul Gascoigne is spotted in the stands! Zidane and Gazza are both here tonight - two of the best players to have ever graced a football pitch.
    • 47' No changes to tell you about at half-time.
    • 46' Here we go again! Back under way at the Lane!
    • 45'+1 There goes the half-time whistle and it's goalless at the break as Real Madrid edge towards a place in the semi-finals.
    • 45' Pavlyuchenko brings Casillas into action with a long range effort, but it's comfortable for the Madrid keeper.
    • 44' Bale sends it in... nothing materialises.
    • 43' Van der Vaart wins a throw and Bale has a chance to launch a long one into the Real box before the half-time whistle.
    • 42' Real break quickly now but the move ends with Ronaldo being crowded out in the Spurs box.
    • 41' Pavlyuchenko is frustrated once again as a decision goes against him.
    • 40' Spurs are playing the ball around nicely here... until Assou Ekotto plays a loose pass.
    • 39' Carvalho goes into the book for a late slide on Huddlestone and that means the former Chelsea man will miss the first leg of the semi-final, should they go through.
    • 38' GOAL! NO! Pavlyuchenko clips the ball over to Modric who heads down for Bale... the Welshman lashes into the back of the net, but the flag is up for offside against Modric!
    • 37' Ramos! Ooh! His looping header has Gomes backpeddling to claw the ball away! But it only goes as far as Adebayor, who fires wide of the mark!
    • 36' Ronaldo wins a corner off Dawson after yet more silky skills to get to the by-line.
    • 35' Ronaldo's heels are clipped by Van der Vaart, who is playing after all. The Dutchman's barely touched the ball this half.
    • 34' Zinedine Zidane is spotted in the stands. What a player.
    • 33' Play continues with Khedira on the deck before it's stopped and he can finally receive some attention.
    • 32' Khedira hits the deck after being headbutted by his own player Albiol as both players go for the same ball! Ouch!
    • 31' Real suffered a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool on their last visit to England in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16.
    • 30' Bale gears up to send a long throw into the box... he finds Huddlestone at the near post but he can't make anything of it.
    • 29' Replays show Pav to have been looking for that one somewhat....
    • 28' A third penalty shout for Spurs as Pavlyuchenko goes over under a challenge from Albiol! Again no spot kick! Spurs are furious about that one!
    • 26' Oooh! Brilliant play from Lennon, who bursts into the Real box before pulling back for Pavlyuchenko, but the Russian can only spoon high over the bar!
    • 25' Dawson leaves Ozil on his backside with a stiff challenge in the centre circle... no foul called.
    • 24' The longer the stalemate continues, the slimmer Spurs' hopes become.
    • 23' Credit to Spurs. They've started very brightly. The trouble is that they're yet to make a breakthrough and they've still got to find four goals - in just 65 minutes or so.
    • 22' Marcelo stops Lennon in his tracks with a cynical looking block. But he escapes censure from the ref.
    • 21' Ronaldo is afforded a bit too much space to run into and the Portuguese takes advantage by shooting on goal! It's wide of the target this time though.
    • 20' Ramos is one of five Real players on yellow cards tonight.
    • 19' Ramos incites the crowd by pushing Bale in the face as both players jump for the ball. Entirely unintentional though and there won't be a card, despite the crowd's pleas for one.
    • 17' Nice flick from Lennon as Spurs come forward again.
    • 16' It's teed up perfectly for Khedira on the edge of the box but the Germany international's effort is poor and dragged wide of the mark.
    • 15' Bale hits straight into the wall though and the chance evaporates.
    • 14' A lovely passing move by Spurs ends with a free-kick awarded after Pavlyuchenko tumbles under the challenge of Khedira... this is Bale range, 30 yards out, dead centre.
    • 13' Ronaldo! The Portuguese turns well to create a bit of space for a shot but Dawson does well to get in a block! Corner to Real!
    • 12' Tottenham have kept just three clean sheets in their last 17 European games at White Hart Lane. (Opta)
    • 11' A Modric pass loops up off Khedira and Casillas is forced into a bit of nimble goalkeeping to prevent a corner.
    • 10' Corluka sends over a cross but it's easily cleared by the Madrid defence.
    • 9' Adebayor runs through on goal now, but he opts to drift a little wide allowing Dawson to nick the ball off him and the move breaks down.
    • 8' The Spurs fans are in full voice tonight. They can sense something can happen. All they need is an early goal to get them on their way.
    • 7' Spurs are up for this one, although Madrid have also started well in what has been an open and entertaining start to the game!
    • 6' Chance for Spurs! Bale gets down the left once again before centring... Ramos is there to clear but only as far as Modric! He goes down in the box! No penalty!
    • 5' It's been a bright opening so far! Plenty of incident already.
    • 4' Bale hares into the Real box... he goes down under a challenge from Alonso and there are big appeals for a penalty! Not given and Alonso screams at Bale for what he perceived as a dive!
    • 3' Ozil! He's through on goal! But his sidefooted effort looking for the bottom corner is weak and Gomes is able to make a comfortable save!
    • 3' Ronaldo gets his first touch and the inevitable boos ring out... likewise for former Arsenal striker Adebayor.
    • 2' Ronaldo immediately hits the deck as Assou-Ekotto rather cheekily kicks him in the bum while contending an aerial ball.
    • 1' Here we go then! Under way at White Hart Lane!
    • 19:42 Here come the teams, with Spurs in their traditional all white. Madrid are in their away strip of all blue tonight.
    • 19:40 FACT: Tottenham have scored four or more goals in a European home game on 19 previous occasions, but never vs a team from Spain. (Opta)
    • 19:35 If Spurs are to emulate their team of 1961-62, who reached the semi-finals of the European Cup, they must do what only three clubs have previously managed in European competition - overturn a three-goal deficit. Real themselves have managed it, along with Leixões SC and FC Partizan.
    • 19:30 Despite being 4-0 down, hope abounds at White Hart Lane prior to kick-off. Not least from Garth Crooks, who spoke to Eurosport about Spurs' chances of making a spectacular comeback tonight. Crooks: Spurs must go for it
    • 19:25 It's been a big day for Spurs off the pitch, with the club starting legal proceedings to challenge the decision to hand the Olympic Stadium to West Ham after London 2012. Spurs start legal proceedings
    • 19:20 Emmanuel Adebayor keeps his place in attack for Real after his two-goal heroics with fit-again Karim Benzema settling for a place on the bench. At the back Alvaro Arbeloa slots in at left-back with Marcelo pushed forward into midfield.
    • 19:15 William Gallas play in the centre of defence for Spurs while Aaron Lennon comes back into the side having missed the first leg through illness. Peter Crouch is suspended after that red card of his, so Roman Pavlyuchenko leads the line up front.
    • 19:10 And tonight's referee is Nicola Rizzoli (Italy).
    • 19:05 Teams - TOTTENHAM: Gomes, Corluka, Gallas, Dawson, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Huddlestone, Modric, Bale, Van der Vaart, Pavlyuchenko.

Subs: Adan, Kaka, Benzema, Granero, Garay, Higuain, Di Maria
    • 19:00 Luka Modric accepts that Spurs need a miracle to turn things around, but the little Croat insisted that defeat will not force a mass exodus of players from the Lane this summer. Modric: Defeat won't spark Spurs exodus
    • 18:55 It may seem like a foregone conclusion that Jose Mourinho's side will set up a semi-final Clasico with Barcelona, but the Portuguese still intends on sending out his team to attack. Mourinho: Spurs need more than five
    • 18:50 Madrid blew Spurs out of the water at the Bernabeu a week ago, when Emmanuel Adebayor netted twice and Peter Crouch got his marching orders. Real hammer 10-man Spurs
    • 18:45 Tottenham welcome Real Madrid to White Hart Lane hoping to achieve the near impossible: overturn a 4-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
