90+3'
FT: Dortmund 2-0 Real Madrid. A Reus double isn't enough for Dortmund who gave everything but came up just short. Real progress to the last four 3-2 on aggregate.
90+3'
 
Benzema booked for his slow stroll off the pitch.

90+2'
 
Real sub: Benzema replaced by Varane. The France striker took an age to go off. Will the ref add the time?
Real Madrid Substitution
90+1'
This has been a sensational effort from Dortmund. The players look shattered. Can they summon one last attack?
90'
Another chance for Bale! Great save Weidenfeller. It's still Real on the attack as Isco flashes wide. Two minutes added. Dortmund still in it. Can they pull off the miracle in injury time?
89'
Back up the other end and Bale surges clear from Benzema's pass but goes down under an awkward challenge. The referee has a long look but decides against giving the foul. Dortmund still alive.
88'
Lewandowski finds space deep in Real territory and wins a corner, but it comes to nothing.
87'
Bale breaks forward for Real but he's easily eased off the ball. Dortmund have a free kick and will try to launch a late onslaught on the Real goal.
86'
Is it going to be four on the spin? STAT: Real Madrid have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of the last three seasons but haven’t been to the final since 2002.
85'
It's been a long, long night for Real, but they are in touching distance of the last four now.
84'
Corner to Dortmund... no., the ref gives the goal kick. It was very close that. Pepe seemed to have the last touch but it's gone Real's way.
83'
 
Another sub goes in the book as Casemiro lunges into a challenge. Real's fourth booking of the night.

Dortmund sub: Piszczek replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Borussia Dortmund Substitution
80'
Benzema gets a sniff of goal and lashes in an effort... fine stop Weidenfeller.
79'
Still more than enough time for Dortmund. The way this match has gone you'd fancy them to create one or two openings in the next 11 minutes or so. Can they make it count?
78'
The visitors could do with Bale stepping up in Ronaldo's absence... STAT: Bale has had a hand in six of Real Madrid’s goals in their last three Champions League matches (three goals, three assists).
77'
A rare touch for Bale as he flicks the ball back towards his defenders. We've hardly seen anything of Real as an attacking force.
76'
 
It's going to be a booking for Reus. The German youngster got a slight knock in the area but not enough to go down. Good decision.
75'
Reus goes down... all eyes turn to the referee.

Dortmund still dominating, still probing for that opening. They've carved Real open at will at times tonight. Do they have something special left in their locker?
Real Madrid Substitution
73'
 
Real sub: Di Maria replaced by Casemiro.
72'
Lewandowski still waiting for his big chance. His record isn't bad against Real either... STAT: Lewandowski has scored five goals in his last four Champions League appearances against Real Madrid; more often than against any other opponent.
71'
Another superb save from Casillas as the Spain stopper gets down well to beat away Grosskreutz's low shot on the turn. Madrid hanging on.
70'
Twenty minutes to go - do we have another goal in this one?
69'
SAVE! It's another chance for the hosts and again it falls to Mkhitaryan who is denied by Casillas. He could have had a hat-trick on another night.
Real Madrid Yellow card

68'
 
Real booking: Carvajal.
67'
Mkhitaryan attempts to lead another charge but Carvajal brings him down. It's got to be a yellow card...
66'
Reus showing just why he is one of Europe's hottest properties. He's been sensational so far tonight.
65'
OFF THE POST! A wonderful break from Dortmund sees Reus rip Real to pieces before playing in Mkhitaryan, who rounds the keeper and crashes his shot against the post. Agonisingly close for the hosts.
64'
A clash of heads leads to a break in play. Grosskreutz and Carvajal receiving treatment.
63'
It's a long time since Madrid failed to score on their CL travels. In fact, they have scored in all 22 away fixtures since the 2009/10 round of 16.
62'
It looks like this winning streak is going to come to an end: STAT - Real Madrid have won their last five Champions League games; the longest current run in the competition.
61'
Another chance for Real. Benzema races onto a pinpoint pass and skips beyond the keeper but can't quite get the shot away and Hummels gets back to deny him.
60'
CLOSE! Bale bursts into life and squeezes between two defenders on the right before curling a yard or so wide of the far post. A warning for the home team.
59'
Isco eventually curls a cross to the far post from the left but it's easy for the keeper. No white shirts in sight in the that Dortmund penalty area.
58'
This is a good spell for Ancelotti's men. They aren't going anywhere fast but it's keeping Dortmund at arm's length.
57'
The visitors win it back and try to slow things down a bit. The high tempo period in the first half blew Real away. They need to avoid that happening again.
56'
Huge roars as Coentrao allows the ball to roll under his foot and out for a throw to the home team. Has the 12th man got into the Real players' heads?
55'
All eyes turning to the Real Madrid bench. Is it Ronaldo time yet?
54'
It's gone a bit scrappy out there. The next goal is obviously very key.
53'
Dortmund attack down the right once more, but this time Pepe manages to untangle his own feet and clip the ball down field.
52'
Alonso somehow gets away with it. That should have been a second yellow. Huge boos ringing out around the stadium after the referee opted to keep his cards in his pocket.
51'
Alonso brings down Mkhitaryan. The Spaniard has already been booked...
50'
The Real attack continues and Di Maria cuts in from the right but drills his shot just over the top.
49'
Chance for Bale who fizzes in a shot... good save Weidenfeller.
48'
Are German stoppers the masters at penalties? Opta Jose thinks so and history wouldn't argue.

13 - Roman Weidenfeller is the 13th goalkeeper to save a penalty in CL this season, the 3rd from Germany. Specialist. http://t.co/BSWydnObYa

47'
 
REAL sub: Isco on for Asier Illarramendi.
46'
KICK OFF! Dortmund restart the game with their dream of pulling off a minor miracle very much alive. One more goal will level it on aggregate - but if Real score, the hosts would need five!
Real Madrid Substitution
45+2'
HT: Dortmund 2-0 Real. A double from Reus has given the hosts real hope here. It promises to be a fantastic second half (2-3 on agg).
45+1'
One minute added. The hosts will have one last attack...
45'
Dortmund continue to attack as the half edges to a close.
44'
A WARNING STAT FOR THE HOSTS: It’s been nearly three years since Real Madrid failed to score in a Champions League game (27/04/2011 v Barcelona) and they have scored in 34 successive CL matches since.
43'
Bale has barely touched the ball in this half. If Ronaldo is fit, then Real are going to need him at this rate.
42'
The corner is cleared but there is no respite for Madrid who are desperate for that half-time whistle.
41'
Dortmund turning the screw and Piszczek's low cross is just about cleared with Lewandowski lurking. Corner ball.
40'
The crowd have been right up for this from the off but it's hit new heights now.
39'
Ancelotti has been on the receiving end of some famous CL comebacks, notably Deportivo against Milan and of course Liverpool in Istanbul. Is it going to be a hat-trick he doesn't want here?
38'
STAT: Polish striker Lewandowski has scored or assisted 21 of Borussia Dortmund’s 42 goals in the Champions League since the start of last season.
37'
 
GOAL! It's well and truly on now! Dortmund 2-0 Madrid. The visitors give the ball away cheaply once again, allowing Reus to race towards goal. He lays it into the path of Lewandowski who hits the post, but Reus follows up to smash the ball high into the net.
Borussia Dortmund Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Center

36'
Lewandwski surges in on goal... great challenge by Ramos. Real are struggling to keep Dortmund out. Another one before the break would really set the cat among the pigeons!
35'

Reus over a free kick 30 yards out...

Alonso commits another foul. Surely he's going in the book this time?
29'
Almost half an hour gone as Alonso gets away with another niggly foul. We definitely have a match on our hands here.
28'
 
Ramos booked for Real. Strange as the free kick has gone his way.
27'
Lewandowksi goes up against Ramos in the area and the Madrid man's arm comes across the striker. The ref says no penalty but looks like he is about to dish out a card.

Real looking rocky at the back as Piszczek almost breaks free following another mistake. But his touch is too heavy and the visitors survive.
25'
Reus has now netted four goals in nine CL matches this term.
24'
 
GOAL! Dortmund 1-0 Real. Pepe commits a howler as his header back lands in the path of Reus who makes no mistake with a low finish. Game on?
Borussia Dortmund Goal

Right Footed - Bottom Center

23'
Looking at replays of the spot kick, Piszczek's arm is miles away from his body. Imagine it will divide opinion that one.
22'
Kirch brings down Bale and Real have a free kick in their own half. A chance to compose themselves after a hectic couple of minutes.
21'
STAT: Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in the Champions League this season (in eight games), equalling the record over a single European Cup/CL campaign alongside José Altafini (14 goals with AC Milan in 1962/63) and Lionel Messi (14 with Barcelona in 2011/12). Ronaldo has scored 49 goals and assisted 11 more in 48 Champions League appearances for Real Madrid.
20'
The game has suddenly burst into life. Both sides could have opened the scoring. Real no doubt ruing the fact Ronaldo is on the bench.
19'
DORTMUND CHANCE! Lewandowski wins the ball on the far left and plays it into Reus. The midfielder shimmies beyond his man and tees up Mkhitaryan who somehow drills wide. He should have scored.
18'
Klopp simply laughed in disbelief when he saw the referee point to the spot. Perhaps justice was served? Di Maria seemed to miscue as he stepped up.
17'
PENALTY SAVED! Di Maria strikes his spot kick low to the keeper's left, but Roman Weidenfeller gets down well to beat it away.
17'
Coentrao crosses from the left and Lukasz Piszczek is penalised for a harsh hand ball.
16'
PENALTY to REAL!
15'
Nice feet and a clever reverse pass towards Lewandowksi by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Daniel Carvajal mops up the danger.
14'
It's been a low-key opening. Dortmund need to crank it up a gear to have any hope.
13'
STAT: Real Madrid come in to this match on the back of a 10-game unbeaten run in the Champions League (W9 D1). The last CL game they lost was the SF first leg in Dortmund last April.
12'
Madrid work it short but it comes to nothing.
11'
Bale breaks down the right with a lightning charge but sees his low cross deflected for a corner.
10'
The free kick comes to nothing but Dortmund are beginning to win the ball back easily and the wave of yellow and black attacks are growing in regularity. Can they get that early breakthrough to ignite some belief?
9'
Free kick to Dortmund as Xabi Alonso tugs back the marauding Reus. Could easily have been a yellow for the former Liverpool man.
8'
A loose ball by Modric gifts the ball to Reus but he can't control it and there aren't enough Dortmund shirts in support to make something of it.
7'
Pepe gets away with one as he upends Reus after being bamboozled by the Borussia playmaker on the edge of the area. The referee got that wrong.
6'
Kevin Grosskreutz fires a cross in from the left but it's food and drink for Iker Casillas.
5'
Modric teases a pass in behind the full back but Fabio Coentrao can't get there.
4'
Real with some good early possession. The visitors looking to take the sting out of Dortmund's early enthusiasm. It's on old cliche, but the key to so many Euro triumphs over the years.
3'
Bale with an early burst down the left but his outside of the foot pass to Di Maria is easily cut out.
2'
Tonight's referee is Damir Skomina of Slovenia.
1'
KICK OFF! Real get us underway with one foot in the last four. But Dortmund are hoping to take that foot from underneath them. Expect the hosts to attack from the start.
19.40
The ground is rocking. Those home supporters still believe despite the steep mountain their team need to climb. The players are entering the arena - let battle commence!

19.25
History suggests Dortmund could triumph on the night - but it also looks like it will be Madrid who prevail unless they can pull off the shock of the competition so far.

STAT: @BVB have won 8 of 13 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the first leg away from home. Biggest margin overturned is 2-0. #UCL

19.20
How do you see this one going? Dortmund to win, but Madrid to progress? Or will Real ease through with home and away succcesses? The German side look a decent bet at 5/2 for a victory on the night, while the draw is good value at 14/5. Madrid are a narrow 6/5.
19.15
STAT: Real Madrid have a 100 per cent record of progressing to the next round of European competition after winning the first-leg 3-0. They are eight for eight at present. Hard to see beyond them making it nine out of nine tonight, but Klopp and co are refusing to give up! Could be an interesting night.
19.10
Carlo Ancelotti: "With Lewandowski returning this is a different game. His presence lifts his fellow players. We will have to keep the balance between attacking and defending but we are best at attacking and we should show that."
19.05
Juergen Klopp: "Last year, we 'went out' in the final. This year it looks like the quarter-finals. But it is not over yet. Real Madrid are one of the favourites to win the Champions League but we want to defend better and use our chances better than in Madrid. I do believe my team showed 'cojones' in the first leg. We made mistakes in defence but we gave them a game. We are specialists for the second half and this is the second half of the quarter-final. We want to win it."
