Just ONE minute of added time
87'—Dinamo pressing late, but it's getting desperate. Rather than work it forward as a team they're going on solo runs, and Spurs are pretty comfortable stamping those out when they reach the box.
81'—That's close from both sides!
A mixup in the defence sees Dinamo with a chance inside the six-yard box. Lloris produces a ridiculous save low down, then Kane hits the woodwork as he tries to make it 6-0 on the counter!
Goga on, Dzaria off.
78'—It's slowed right down here, as Spurs know it's won and Dinamo know it's lost.
The visitors simply holding possession and killing the tempo, with AVB already thinking about Swansea at home on Sunday.
Tom Carroll and Harry Kane ON! The kids get some playing time.
So, this is a mauling and there's still 20 minutes left. The Dinamo defence have checked out, and Spurs are bringing on some youngsters to see out the job.
