I have been Aaron Hindhaugh and thanks for joining me tonight 

That is all from me tonight I hope you have enjoyed Vavel's coverage of the Champions League tonight and remember to check back this week for more live coverage and match reports 

Kane's early second-half goal was crucial as it let them have an easier second half as Dortmund never looked like scoring after they went a goal down

Tottenham's defenders put their bodies on the line tonight and they kept Spurs comfortably ahead on the night going into half time

The Lillywhites were excellent and superbly organised in both games but especially tonight 

Full time 

Spurs are into the last eight of the Champions League


Been a slow and poor second half from Dortmund but a professional one from Spurs as they have played 180 minutes against Dortmund and not conceded


Sissoko has a chance to score but falls over his own feet in the box which would have been only his second goal for the club


Pulisic is unmarked in the box and could have taken a touch but decides to flick his header over the bar and not troubling Lloris


Not much has happened of late as Dortmund are just passing the ball without going anywhere and Spurs are happy for the home side to have the ball


A wasted free kick from Reus which sums up Dortmund's night, good opportunities but no cutting edge 


That Spurs goal has knocked the stuffing out of Dortmund and seem lost of ideas now


Spurs have been excellent defensively this evening but Dortmund's failure to take any of their first-half chances has cost them severely 

Dortmund now require five goals to progress which seems impossible and that goal makes Kane Spurs' top scorer in Europe

Kane was left unmarked with so much space as Sissoko played in the Englishman and finished confidently into the top corner 

48' GOAL

Kane puts the tie to bed and sends Spurs into the next round 

The second half is underway 

However, Spurs have been resolute at the back and look very solid compared to their last few games in the Premier League 

Half time in Germany and Dortmund will be thinking how they have not scored at least one probably two


Yet another chance, this time as Alcacer tries to curl one into the corner but once again Lloris is equal to the effort and holds onto the shot


Another chance and another Spurs block they are putting their bodies on the line in this game

The home side should have at least one goal in this game and Spurs may look back on those saves and blocks if the progress

32' Chance

Dortmund have three corners in a row and each one brought a chance for the home side with Reus, Gotze and Weigl all going close


You would probably think Dortmund need a goal before half time to have a chance of progressing

30' Chance

Son should have put this game to bed as he ran through and just had to slot it beyond Burki but he poked it wide 


Spurs are doing a good job of closing Dortmund down in midfield and forcing them out wide 


Another heart in mouth moment for Spurs as Reus' shot deflects and looks like it may lob over Lloris who needs two attempts at holding onto the ball


Another chance as Dortmund look in on goal but Sanchez gets back just in time to clear the ball out for a corner

11' Chance

Reus looks certain to score as he is one-on-one with Lloris but somehow Vertonghen gets back in time to slide in an black the German's shot


Spurs not finding much space in the midfield and struggling to get out their own half in the early exchanges


Spurs trying to play out from the back is not working at the moment as Dortmund's front three are pressing really high and effectively 


It is a superb atmosphere at the Signal Iduna Park and Spurs will have to be solid at the back to whether an early Dortmund storm 

Kick off

We are underway in Dortmund

Spurs XI: Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Winks, Sissoko; Eriksen, Son; Kane

Dortmund XI: Burki; Wolf, Akanji, Weigl, Diallo; Gotze, Witsel, Sancho, Reus, Guerreiro; Alcacer

Team news is out 

A Spurs goal could effectively end the tie as the home side would need a minimum of five goals without the away side scoring again

Tottenham won 2-1 at the Signal Iduna Park last season and will be hoping for a similar result tomorrow night

Spurs will be confident of qualifying for the next round and keeping Champions League football in London

Dortmund will have to shut out Spurs and score four goals to seem themselves progress further in the Champions League

Dortmund only have one win in their last seven matches in all competitions whereas Spurs have not won in their last three league games.

Both sides come into the game off the back of a poor run of form compared to earlier in the season

Spurs faced a Dortmund side without their two top scorers in Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer who are both back for the Bundesliga leaders

The Lillywhites have Harry Kane back after he missed the first leg through injury

Spurs take a three-goal lead over to Germany as they look to progress in the Champions League
