Wow. A breath-taking second-half display.
Spurs win 3-0, and will take that mighty lead with them to Germany for the second leg.
Almost a cat amongst the pigeons, but Guerreiro curls one just wide.
Just two minutes added on...

There goes Son. What a performance.
- GoalFernando LlorenteTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! SPURS ARE IN DREAMLAND!
Eriksen crosses, Llorente heads in - have Spurs just taken the tie away from Dortmund? Stunning.
- GoalJan VertonghenTottenham Hotspur
GOAL FOR SPURS!
Vertonghen gets the goal his performance deserves.... Can you believe it, the left-back is the furthest Spurs player forward as he meets Aurier's deep cross to volley it in first-time. Wow.
Dortmund have just not turned up this half. 1-0 a funny old scoreline but sets it up nicely for the second leg - still 10 minutes to change that.
- OffDan-Axel ZagadouBorussia Dortmund
- OnMarcel SchmelzerBorussia Dortmund
First sub of the evening - Schmelzer on.
CHANCE! A Spurs corner bounces all the way through for Moura but his fierce effort deflects over for another corner...
A VERY quick VAR check to see if Delaney handled it when blocking - but it's a swift dismissal.
Still no subs at Wembley. Can only imagine Dortmund will twist in search of an away goal.
Lapse in concentration from Pulisic as Dortmund look to break. Spurs let-off after they had been playing it around comfortably.
SAVE! Simple save for Lloris from Dahoud, whose attempt from 20 yards out skims along the turf towards the goalkeeper.
Meanwhile in the Netherlands, the deadlock has been broken...
Spurs looking dangerous with each attack at the moment, and it's Toprak who vitally intercepts an Aurier cross with Moura ready to pounce.
Spurs turn defence into attack in the blink of an eye and Vertonghen whips in another terrific ball, but it's turned away for a corner...
Eriksen crosses and it finds Foyth beyond the back post, but there is Delaney to clear away.
BIG CHANCE! Spurs take a quick free-kick and a ball over the top picks out Eriksen, who simply has to cross it for Son but the connection isn't good enough and Zagadou heads it out for a corner....
SAVE! From the resulting corner, Alderweireld heads straight at Burki.
Dortmund yet to fashion a chance this half and they're just looking second-best at the minute. Their fans doing their utmost to spur them back on, mind.
OVER! Vertonghen cuts in from the left, carries it and carries it, and then fires a shot over from 25 yards out. Worth a try.
Straight into the wall from Eriksen - disappointing.
Free-kick for Spurs some 25 yards out... Eriksen the only man standing over it.
This is a completely different Spurs this half. They caught Dortmund unawares, and now the Germans need to respond.
Spurs' man of the moment.
Heung-min Son has scored more goals against Borussia Dortmund in his senior club career than he has against any other opponent.
That's now nine goals in 11 games.
- GoalHeung-Min SonTottenham Hotspur
GOAL FOR SPURS!
What a start to the second half. Vertonghen whips in a beautiful ball for Son, who is unmarked eight yards out to volley in their opener.

There is the whistle - second half under way.
- End of 1st Half
And that's the half at Wembley. Close affair!
BIG SAVE! Dortmund play a short corner and Sancho's cross then finds Zagadou, whose header deflects off Foyth and heads towards the far corner, but Lloris does brilliantly to palm it away.
No such drama here in the past few minutes. Meandering towards half-time.
OR NOT!! VAR has intervened at Ajax - as you were...
Over in Amsterdam, Ajax have taken a lead their performance so far deserves against Real Madrid...
Sissoko appears to bring down Sancho on the edge of the box but the referee waves play on...
"REF!!!" shouts Sancho. Would be interesting to see that one again.
Replay time - Sissoko clips Sancho. Spurs lucky, would have been a free-kick 20 yards out.
CLOSE! Son's cross from the left almost finds Moura but Burki manages to stick out a leg to steer the ball away.
OVER! More like it from Spurs as Foyth plays a one-two with Aurier before picking out Eriksen in the box, but the Dane's first-time effort flies over.
SAVE! Down the other end Delaney tries his luck from 20 yards out and Lloris can only parry it back into danger, but Sanchez gets there first to clear.
Patient play from Spurs, which is not making it the cracker we had hoped for. Their build-up play almost brings about an opportunity, but Son is crowded out just as he's about to wind one up on the edge of the area.
A sarcastic clap from Vertonghen as Hakimi barges him over but somehow escapes without giving away a foul. Was practically on the corner spot, and the Spurs defender can't quite believe how his side don't have a free-kick.
Sancho impressing so far.
The Spurs fans just trying to rally their players - they've weathered the storm, and are just enjoying a period of possession.
Dortmund on top at the mo... but the battle is long.
Spurs are not looking comfortable in defence. Sancho twists and turns and Sanchez can't handle it, but the English winger can't pick out a team-mate in yellow as Spurs just about clear the danger.
Dortmund upping the ante here, and Spurs continue to sit back and wait for the break.
You can hear Hakimi as he goes down under a tackle from Sissoko. Dortmund will look to cross one in some 10 yards in from the corner flag...
Pulisic takes, Vertonghen heads clear.... but it's with Witsel on the edge of the area and his low strike is saved easily by Lloris.
Foyth gives the ball away again and Dortmund look to break, but it's a heavy touch from Sancho which allows Alderweireld to track back and make a vital interception.
SAVE! Foyth is caught out on the corner of his own area and Pulisic advances before cutting onto his left foot and forcing a save from Lloris, who uses his knees to keep it out.
A chance from nothing - so close.
- Yellow cardSerge AurierTottenham Hotspur
Wow, that's an early yellow. Aurier pulls Pulisic back cynically and goes in the book... Based on last night's Man Utd vs PSG game - in which there were far too many yellows and the referee lost control of the game (in my opinion) - perhaps a warning for Aurier would have been best.
Winks tries to play it through for Son, who arches his run in a bid to beat the offisde trap, but there's too much on the pass and it's with Burki.
JUST WIDE! What a beauty that would have been from Moura... Sanchez heads a ball back into the box and Moura cushions it with his knee before volleying wide of the far post. A matter of inches, that.
Dortmund enjoying plenty of the ball so far. Spurs with their five at the back are inviting the visitors to attack, really. Can only wait to see if Poch's ploy pays off.
Quiet start at Wembley on the pitch, both teams just finding their feet.
Great noise around the stadium, mind.
- 1st Half
First: A minute's silence, and then applause, to remember England's World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gordon Banks, as well as the late Emiliano Sala, who was tragically killed in a plane crash on his way to Cardiff from Nantes.
And away we go at Wembley. This should be a cracker.
Reminder, VAR has snuck in halfway through the show that is the Champions League and features in the last 16!
Out they come at Wembley – tough one to call this, but if you forced me… 2-1 Spurs.
(Tut tut biased English media, I just fancy them at home, okay?)
Tick, tock, 10 minutes to go...
Dortmund may be leading the way in Germany, but they threw away a 3-0 lead at home to Hoffenheim on the weekend to draw 3-3.
Spurs, meanwhile, have won four Premier League games on the spin…
Welcome home, Jadon
Elsewhere in Europe, Real Madrid head to the Netherlands for their last-16 first leg against Ajax.
Can soon-to-be Barcalona star Frenkie de Jong help Ajax spring an upset on the European champions? You can follow that one below…
How did they get here? Well…
Bundesliga leaders Dortmund pipped Atletico to top their group before Christmas, while Spurs did some pipping of their own, finishing second ahead of Inter after beating the Italians on head-to-head away goals, having come away with eight points and -1 goal difference apiece.
Lucas Moura proved to be Spurs’ hero in their final group game at Barcelona, scoring an 85th-minute equaliser to help them squeeze through.
It’s five at the back for Spurs as Pochettino calls on Foyth to slot in alongside Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, and Aurier, who is perhaps a surprise starter tonight.
Dortmund meanwhile have Sancho, Gotze and Pulisic up front with Reus out due to injury.
Tottenham XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Foyth, Vertonghen, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lucas, Son
Subs: Gazzaniga, Trippier, Rose, Skipp, Wanyama, Lamela, Llorente
Dortmund XI: Burki, Hakimi, Zagadou, Diallo, Schmelzer, Witsel, Delaney, Dahoud, Sancho, Pulisic, Gotze.

Ah, it’s good to have you back, Champions League.
The big ties keep coming, and here we’re concerned with all things Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund in a mouth-watering last-16 first leg encounter at Wembley.
An 8pm kick-off this one. Now let’s have a look at those teams…
