90'+5
And that's that. The final whistle goes and Spurs are through to the last 16 of the Europa League . A remarkable second half with that blitz of Spurs goals in 13 minutes, and they become the first - and conceivably only - English side to advance in this first knockout stage in Europe. Thanks for joining us.
90'+4
Adebayor counters through the middle for Spurs, his pass to Kane is a little strong but the youngster shrewdly uses that to run down a bit of time in the corner.
90'+3
Konoplyanka whips the free-kick towards goal and Lloris does well to get down and palm the ball away.
90'+2
 
Ooof. Dawson goes into the book for completely wiping Konoplyanka out when running towards goal. He has a chance from the free-kick now.
90'+1
A fairly quiet start to added time so far. Spurs still holding on a little.
90'
Five minutes of added time, which is slightly surprising. Spurs have to hold on now.
89'
 
Rotan goes into the book for a rugby takcle on Dembele in midfield.
Tottenham Hotspur Substitution
88'
Spurs still look very slighty nervous - they almost put Lloris in trouble with a suspect backpass.
87'
 
Final sub for Spurs - Soldado is off, Harry Kane is on.
86'
Konoplyanka breaks inside from the left and fires a terrific shot at goal, but Lloris does well to get down and claw it away.
Tottenham Hotspur Substitution
85'
 
And a chance for Spurs - Aaron Lennon comes on for Townsend.
FC Dnipro Substitution
84'
 
Another sub for Dnipro. Fedetskiy is replaced by Denys Kulakov.
83'
Dnipro haven't given anything up yet. Seleznyev gets the ball at the far post, but his right-footed shot from a tight angle is straight at Lloris.
82'
Nice play by Bentaleb down the left exploits some of the space left by Dnipro lacking in numbers, but his low cross aiming for Soldado in the middle is cleared by the first man.
81'
Townsend does brilliantly on the right, goes down the outside and whips a great low cross, but Soldado can't control a tough effort and it bounces over the bar.
80'
Spurs knocking the ball around with something approaching arrogance now. Eriksen tries a cross from the left but it's blocked at the near post.
79'
Dnipro still look dangerous here. Matheus attacks down the right, but is just about ushered away from danger by Fryers.
78'
Rotan tries to get Dnipro back into things down the left, but he's felled by Townsend.
77'
Boyko nearly gets into some trouble with a bobbling backpass and Townsend closing him down, but he just manages to get it clear.
Tottenham Hotspur Substitution
76'
 
Sub for Spurs - Sandro is replaced by youngster Nabil Bentaleb.
75'
Fryers and Eriksen combine well on the left of the box, they feed Soldado but a fine block tackle prevents his shot from going anywhere.
74'
Spurs counter down the left and Soldado picks it up on the corner of the box, but dithers so much that the attack fizzles out. That might be his last involvement.
73'
Close for Dnipro. Matheus gets into the area far too easily, makes it to the byline and cuts back where Fedetskiy is waiting, but he can't quite get there and Dawson clears.
72'
Adebayor is all over te place now. He chases out to the left and takcles Fedetskiy brilliantly.
71'
13 minutes between Spurs' first and third goals. An extraordinary turnaround and no mistake.
70'
 
Change for Dnipro - Kankava comes off, and is replaced by striker Yevhen Seleznyov.
FC Dnipro Substitution
69'
 
GOAL! ADEBAYOR PUTS SPURS AHEAD! Incredible scenes! Fryers plays a long pass from deep on the left, it finds Adebayor who does superbly to head down for himself, past Mazuch and he flicks it beyond the keeper and into the corner of the net. Remarkable.
68'
Slack play from Townsend sets up a counter from Konoplyanka, but Naughton does well to recover it on the left.
67'
Konoplyanka is down receiving treatment, but he looks like he'll be OK to continue.
66'
What a turnaround this has been. Dnipro might feel aggrieved about the sending off, but Spurs have been relentless since the first goal.
65'
 
GOAL - ADEBAYOR MAKES IT 2-1! Well, well, well. Eriksen whips a fantastic cross over from the left and Adebayor, played onside by a lingering defender at the far post, just prods it home from the edge of the six-yard box. Game. On.
63'
Eriksen swings the free-kick over, but it's too deep and goes out.
62'
Zozulya was absolutley fuming, and had to be restrained by Adebayor before eventually going off.
61'
 
ZOZULYA IS OFF! He's not happy, and rightly so. The Dnipro man was jostling with Vertonghen in the area, there was a the faintest touch of heads between the two and the Belgian fell to the ground as if hit with a house brick.
60'
Spurs attack with some vim, and win another free-kick. Chance to deliver now.
59'
 
Well, this has very much livened up. The free-kick is squared to Konoplyanka just outside the box, and he hits a first-time shot that beats Lloris but crashes into the base of the post. Very, very close.
58'
 
Vetonghen goes into the book for dragging back Konoplyanka as he attack down the right.
57'
Sherwood isn't happy about Dnipro's time-wasting - they did seem rather leisurely in restarting the game. The Spurs boss has a chat with the ref, and gets his views across rather forcefully.
56'
 
GOAL! ERIKSEN PULLS ONE BACK! The Dane curls the ball over the wall and just inside the near post, with Boyko just getting a hand to it. The comeback begins...
54'
Chance for Eriksen to create something with a free-kick on the left corner of the area.
53'
 
Oh, Roberto Soldado. Poor guy. Eriksen slips a nice pass through the middle and Soldado sweeps the ball home with a decisive finish, but the linesman's flag goes up. A tight call, but just offside.
52'
Close from Dembele! Eriksen puts the corner over and it breaks to the Belgian, and he manages to direct a very awkward effort in the direction of the goal, but it bounces over the bar.
51'
Townsend dances down the right and does well to win a corner off Fedetskiy.
50'
Townsend and Naughton exchange passes on the right, but the latter's cross from the touchline is far too deep and flies over everyone.
49'
Spurs' comeback doesn't start well as Fryers plays the very simplest of five-yard passes out of play.
48'
Worst start to the second half possible for Spurs. Surely Sherwood will have to make a change now.
47'
 
GOAL! ZOZULYA GIVES DNIPRO THE LEAD! Well, that's bad news for Spurs. They need three goals to go through now as a wonderful whipped free-kick is chucked into the box by Rotan, and Zozulya gets there to flick the header home, via Lloris's hand.
46'
No changes at half-time for Spurs, and they get us underway again for the second period.
45'+1
And that's half-time, with the referee blowing the whistle as Townsend attacked down the right. It hasn't been a great game, but Dnipro are doing everything they can to prevent Spurs from playing, and doing it very well. Tim Sherwood's men will have to buck up a little after the break.
45'
Just the one minute of added time. Adebayor is penalised for holding off Mazuch as they go up for a header.
44'
 
Booking for Sandro, and rightly so. He goes for the ball with Rotan, but his foot is very high and nearly takes the Dnipro skipper's head off.
43'
Giuliano breaks towards goal down the middle, but again he seems to trip over his own feet. Seems to be plenty of that.
42'
Dawson, under no real pressure, again tries a big booming diagonal pass, and again it's easily cleared. He should really stop doing that.
41'
Another disappointing delivery from Eriksen, whose ball into the box is headed clear by the first man. This game has been basically defined by poor set-piece delivery.
40'
Yet another free-kick, this time won by Adebayor. Another one in a dangerous position for Spurs.
39'
Matheus tries a few tricks and a run down the right, trips over his own feet then berates the linesman for not giving a free-kick. Funny stuff.
38'
Eriksen takes the free-kick quickly, shifting inside to Sandro, who is encouraged to shoot by the crowd. He obliges, but badly, and it goes well wide.
37'
Now it's Dnipro's turn to give away a free-kick, with Kankava taking Dembele down on the left.
36'
The free-kick is shifted for Matheus to try the shot, but he slices it well, well wide.
35'
Zozulya goes down under a challenge from Vertonghen, and wins the free-kick, but it actually looked like he was holding the Belgian, rather than the other way around. Vertonghen isn't happy, but Dnipro have the free-kick.
34'
Spurs knock the ball around midfield, looking for a way through, but the Ukrainian side are tight defensively and they can't breach the defence.
33'
Konkava tries to create something on the right for Dnipro, but his pass down the line looking for Matheus is overhit.
32'
Townsend plays a ball inside from the right, but Soldado can't take it under control. Not much is going right for the Spaniard at the moment.
31'
Dnipro counter and Matheus is through on goal, latching onto a long pass from Zozulya, but he goes down under a challenge from Dawson. Nothing given, and rightly so.
30'
Neatish play from Soldado and Eriksen on the edge of the area, but the former's flick just fails to reach Adebayor. That was unlucky.
29'
Those of you who followed the first game will be relieved to learn that Matheus is indeed wearing his odd boots - one black, one white - again.
28'
Matheus is the latest Dnipro player to fall to the turn with an injury. Looked like he landed badly when going up for a header with Fryers.
27'
First real proper shot on goal, as Eriksen hits a swerving and dipping free-kick that Boyko does well to get down and save, then claim at the second attempt.
26'
Vertonghen tries to advance from defence, but he's pulled back and Spurs have a free-kick in a dangerous place.
25'
Eriksen breaks into the box on the left, but his cut-back is to nobody and it's easily cleared.
24'
Fedetskiy goes down in a heap under a challenge from Soldado, and it actually looks like the Spurs man was lucky to get away with that. He appeared to raise an elbow, there. Hmmm.
23'
Mazuch claims handball against Soldado as they both go for a ball on the Spurs left, but it looked more like a high foot from the Dnipro man than hands.
22'
Nothing Soldado tries is working out at the moment. He tries to backheel Fryers in on the left side of the area, but it's too strong and goes out for a goal kick.
21'
Fairly even stuff so far. Neither team have really created anything much yet, with Dnipro obviously happy to sit back and hit Spurs on the counter with Konoplyanka et al.
20'
Neat play between Dembele and Eriksen on the edge of the area, but it's very tight and Eriksen's attempt at a defence-splitting through-ball is too strong, and it goes out.
19'
Konoplyanka opens his legs for the first time and runs down the left, but Dembele does well to shepherd the ball away.
18'
Quite update from the pre-game speculation; Sandro has indeed plaited his beard.
17'
Eriksen breaks through the middle, sees a gap in the Dnipro defence and very nearly makes it, but a heavy touch allows Rotan to take the ball off him.
16'
The replays suggest Vertonghen did catch his opponent in the side of the head with a flailing arm, but it was unintentional.
15'
Zozulya goes down with his head in his hands under a challenge from Vertonghen, but nothing is given and Spurs quite rightly play on.
14'
Townsend dances around Rotan on the right, but his pass inside is wayward, and Adebayor can't gather it.
13'
Sandro wins the ball back in midfield with a meaty challenge, on Rotan, and the crowd roars 'Beeeeeaaaassssstttttt' in approval.
12'
Townsend tries to create something down the right, but twists, turns then twists again, but is dispossessed with relative ease.
11'
Spurs haven't really been able to create anything of much note so far. They look a tiny bit nervous, oddly.
10'
Dnipro get a free kick deep on the left, which Konoplyanka swings over at some pace, but Lloris comes out and gathers with relative ease.
9'
Dawson tries another long pass from the back, but Adebayor is either penalised for offside or a push on Strinic. Possibly both.
8'
Eriksen tries a shot from the edge of the area, but it takes a hefty deflection and it loops high and wide.
7'
A Tottenham attack peters out and Dnipro counter down the right, but Zozylya's run ends with a wayward cross, and the ball eventually finds its way back to Lloris.
6'
Tim Sherwood appears to have already got himself into a disagreement with the officials on the touchline. Perhaps not especially wise.
5'
Michael Dawson tries one of his 'trademark' long passes, but it's headed straight back to him by a Dnipro defender.
4'
Konoplyanka cuts in from the left and tries to break through the defence, but he's forced back and Dnipro spend about 30 seconds just knocking the ball harmlessly around midfield.
3'
Hugo Lloris hits a sloppy clearance straight to a Dnipro attacker, but luckily for him they give the ball straight back.
2'
Tottenham have most of the earliest exchanges, with a cross from the left by Fryers blocked at the near post.
1'
And we are underway, with Dnipro kicking off.
20:01
The teams are in the tunnel, and the excitement is quite literally growing. Sort of.
19:53
Remarkable news from White Hart Lane - Sandro appears to have plaited his beard. More as we get it.
19.50
Alas, over in Naples, Swansea are out, beaten 3-1 (on the night and on aggregate) by Rafa Benitez's side.
19:40
The last goal Soldado scored from open play was the second in his hat-trick against Anzhi, back in December. He's got two penalties since then.
19:35
Kyle Naughton isn't using this competition as an excuse for their failings in the league: "We can't make excuses about playing in the Europa League. That's what we are in, we should have a big enough squad to deal with that and the Premier League. The stats don't lie, it does seem that way, it's something that is happening and we're not sure why. The games are running out but we have got to keep fighting, we can't let that go. We have to aim for the top four."
19:28
So a strong team put out by Tim Sherwood, and an attacking one too. After all, they do have to claw back a deficit after the first leg. Will Roberto Soldado finally retrieve some of his confidence?
19:19
