Full-time: Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 Tottenham

All over in Germany. And despite a disappointing second-half performance, Spurs at least walk away with a potentially valuable point.

Back in the UK, it's ended Leicester 1-0 Copenhagen. Another memorable night for the Foxes.

Thanks for joining us this evening!

Josh Onomah comes on for Son for the final three minutes of the game. Can he make an impact? We're about to find out...


Bayer are pushing and pushing for a goal but time is running out quickly. This one looks destined to end in a draw.

Kampl's cross-shot hits Kiessling inside the six-yard box, but the ball then flies wide.

Leverkusen make their final sub: Chicharito off, Brandt on. The Mexican will be regretting his missed chance now.

Another good piece of play from Eriksen, who makes a zig-zagging run down the right flank - but his effort from an acute angle is saved at the second attempt. One goal will win this now.



Back at the King Power, Leicester stand on the cusp of a third win from three Champions League games.

Can they hold on?

Another sub for the hosts. Bender is replaced by Jedvaj. Around 15 minutes left in this game.

Spurs aren't posing enough of a threat for their liking. Maurcio Pochettino must be frustrated with how this contest has turned.

Leverkusen have missed to more golden chances in the space of two minutes.

First, Stefan Kiessling's powerful effort is pushed behind by Hugo Lloris, who is proving to be a one-man army this evening. Then, a goal-bound effort from a corner is easily held by the Frenchman.


Pochettino's boys are definitely holding on now. Amazing how this match has turned around, because Spurs were in control towards the end of the first half.

As a result, they're making a sub: Vincent Janssen is trotting off, Mousa Dembele replaces him.

Hugo Lloris to the rescue again for Spurs, as he paws a low, right-footed effort from Mehmedi around the post. And Tottenham survive the subsequent corner.

I wonder if Maurcio Pochettino would take a point now...?

Hernandez goes close again!

The little Mexican hits a left-footed effort towards the top corner, but Danny Rose just gets his forehead on the ball to send it over the top. The momentum of the game has definitely changed, though.

Hernandez is fouled in the centre of the BayArena. And Spurs are now starting to show their frustrations.

I fancy Mauricio Pochettino will be considering a substitution.

Back in Leicester, the Foxes are poised to end the evening with more points in the Champions League than they have in the Premier League. Some thought, that.

Well, that was a HUGE warning for Spurs, who have largely dominated this game.

Javier Hernandez has spurned the opportunity of the game!

The ex-Manchester United man, sliding in at the back post, has a tap-in to give the hosts the lead ... but, but has it gone over the line? No, Hugo Lloris made an incredible last-ditch save! Confirmed by the goal-line technology, too.

I've no idea how Leverkusen have not scored there. It seemed to be inevitable.


Javier Hernandez tries to get in behind the Spurs defence early on, but can only hack down Hugo Lloris with a late tackle in an effort to win the ball.


Leverkusen have made a change at the break. Baumgartlinger on, Calhanoglu off.

Anyway, we're back under way in Germany - will anybody be able to find the net in the next 45 minutes?

Half-time: Leicester City 1-0 FC Copenhagen

So far, it's a good-ish night for English teams in the Champions League. The Foxes probably wish they could play European competition every weekend given how their season is panning out.

Half-time: Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 Tottenham

Spurs could and perhaps should be 1-0 up, but we're still waiting for the all-important first goal of the game.

Tottenham have been the better side. Just. But they need to make their marginal superiority count.


Son is getting a bit of grief from the home supporters. He had a few things thrown his way as he prepared to take a setpiece just now.

We've almost reached half-time across Europe.


Back in Germany, Kampl stabs an effort wide from the edge of the area, although Hugo Lloris appeared to be beaten in the Spurs goal. He was relieved to see that pass harmlessly past the post.


GOAL: Leicester 1-0 Copenhagen (Mahrez)

Lift off at the King Power! And it's that man again, Riyad Mahrez with the goal. He meets Islam Slimani's knock-down to put the hosts 1-0 up.
