90+3' PEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEP! SPURS GO THROUGH TO THE KNOCKOUT ROUNDS!

They've outclasses the European champions. On a night when Madrid's defensive vulnerabilities were pushed to the forefront, Pochettino's attackers took full advantage and got back to their winning ways following two back to back defeats. 

Zinedine Zidane has a lot on his plate right now. He has world-class players in almost every position but their balloon's been popped and there are no winds strong enough in England to propel them into the knockout stages. But only for tonight. 

A second defeat in a row for Madrid. Their supporters are not used to this and will not take to this with calmness. That much I can tell you.

But all in all, wonderful display from Tottenham. 

This is me, Shambhu Ajith, signing off. I'm a tired man. But this has been a great watch and for all the Premier League fans out there, it has been an absolute treat. I'm gleaming right now. 

I'll sod off, my lads. Hope you had fun following the game here. You can take me to the cleaners for my shortcomings on Twitter- @goddamnhunter

Until next time,

Arrivederci! 
...
90+2' Real Madrid have a corner in the dying embers of the game. Kroos takes it. It is headed clear and Marcelo tries to go for it from outside the box but it's a poor, poor shot and it flies into the stands.
...
90+1 '3 minutes' of stoppage time. But Madrid are still at it. 
Ramos brings down Llorente in the centre of the park. He sarcastically applauds the ref. Gets a yellow card. Well, who could've seen that coming?
...
89' Llorente almost gets to the end of a clever little ball into the box but Casilla keeps his concentration and gathers the ball before Llorente can dink it over him.
...
88' Dembele gets a yellow card. Well deserved. Almost as cynical as they come. He swipes at Ramos' feet rather criminally. Could so easily have been a red card.
...
87' Trippier's freekick is overhit and it goes out for a goalkick.
...
87' Dele Alli is brought down by Ramos. Ramos crashes into him from behind. Freekick for Spurs.
...
86' Battle of the bullies here as Ramos and Dembele are in each other's faces after a coming together.
...
85' Dier clears a cross from the left side before Ronaldo can get to it. Threatening stuff from Madrid. You can't write them off.
...
84' Ronaldo from 30 yards out! Lloris saves!
Asensio pokes one into the path of Mayoral from the right wing. Mayoral finds Ronaldo in space down the middle. He doesn't think twice and strikes it from 30 yards out but it doesn't really test Lloris though Ronaldo met it well.
...
83' Casemiro tries to whip one into the box from the right flank but it's overhit and goes out on the other flank for a throw-in.
...
82' You can't write them off. Madrid trying to conjure up something out of nothing and are almost successful but Casemiro's final shot is weak and is easily gobbled up by Lloris. 
...
80' RONALDO SCORES!
Achraf crosses it in but it's overhit but Marcelo sprints ahead and saves it from going out for a goalkick and he puts into the box. Modric misses the header and Mayoral stops the ball and Ronaldo latches on to it from 6 yards out. His shot takes a slight deflection. It was going in anyway. Consolation for Madrid.
...
78' Substitution for Spurs!
Llorente in, Harry Kane out!

Though he couldn't get himself on the scoresheet, he has been absolutely menacing and deserves every bit of the ovation he gets.
...
77' OH DELE ALLI! He wouldn't get a better chance to score a hattrick. He was free in the middle of the box as Trippier found him with great precision. But his header is awful and it slides wide of the post and Alli goes and embraces the netting in disappointment.
...
77' Eriksen surges ahead after Kane heads it into his path after the ball is cleared. But Nacho clears it before Eriksen makes something out of it.
...
75' Modric finds Marcelo on the left flank but his delivery is poor once again and it goes over everybody in the box and rolls out for a goalkick. Madrid's passing has been poor today, especially in the final third.
...
74' Mayoral tries to break past the defensive block but he is flagged offside.
...
73' Substitutions for Real Madrid!

Borja Mayoral and Asensio have come in for Karim Benzema and Isco!
...
72' Trippier has been excellent today. And he finds Eriksen with a lovely diagonal ball to the left flank. Nothing comes from it however. 
...
71' Lovely passing game from Spurs as they keep Madrid off the ball with some neat exchanges. Madrid are chasing quite literally now.
...
70' Spurs on the ball now. Dele Alli frees up Davies on the left flank. He drives one in and Eriksen gets to it but his touch is too heavy and Madrid clear their lines. 
...
69' Madrid are not looking like a team that's 3-0 down. They're playing some high-risk football here. Ronaldo can't quite get to the end of a lofted ball into the box as another attack fizzles out.
...
67' Eriksen tries to go for it from outside the box but he sends it into the stands.
...
67' Corner for Real Madrid after Vertonghen and Lloris experience a communication error. Rubbish again from the corner from Madrid.
