35' Sandro sticks his studs in on Trippier and that's another sore one on the ankle. He gets booked.

34'   Kane on the left with an ambitious shot. Curls wide but a second there where it might have gone in! Well wide in the end really.

Chiellini in tears during that. Really powerful and so sad. 

A minutes's silence respected for Davide Astori at Wembley. 

The players make their way onto the field and there it is, the Champions League anthem!

This could be Gigi Buffon's last game in the Champions League. The retirement is fairly certain, unless they win the Champions League, but it still needs the seal of approval from the president: "I don't have to make any more reflections because they've already been made -- we just need to agree them with the president, but his are pretty much the same thoughts that I have," he said. "It's not the right time to talk about an individual now, though, even if that individual is me.

A reminder of the line-ups: 

We are just ten minutes away from action now at Wembley. 

Here is some of the praise that has been heaped on him. Rio Ferdinand says he should be at Real Madrid with Gareth Bale. Also, Pochettino said, "I have told you - and some people use my word to describe him - he is a genius of football. He is this type of player I put next to Ronaldinho, Maradona, [Jay-Jay] Okocha – players that I was lucky to play with. For me, he is one of the unbelievable talents in the history of football.

Moussa Dembele has been the talk of the town since his performance against Juventus tonight. He says, "It's a good feeling. Everybody likes to be appreciated. It's a good feeling, but there's so much to play for still."

Juventus heading out on the hallowed Wembley turf. 

Serge Aurier is suspended for tonight's game and Kieran Trippier starts in his place while Heung-Min Son starts in place of Erik Lamela. The Argentine was excellent in that first leg and was vital to how Spurs pressed but Son is in good form, scoring two against Huddersfield at the weekend. He also says: "It's a Champions League game against a difficult opponent. We play at home but we are not scared. We need to play our game, be confident and play forward like we play at Wembley. That's the most important thing."

Spurs could take a massive step towards European respectability tonight by knocking out a club who have won it twice. Is tonight the night they announce themselves on the scene in Europe? The 2-2 means Juve have to score and that makes things very interesting with Dybala and Higuain starting in attack for the Old Lady.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane.

Juventus XI: Buffon, Barzagli, Benatia, Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi, Douglas Costa, Higuain, Dybala
