Five goals for Real Madrid and not a Cristiano Ronaldo among them. Alvaro Morata grabbed the final goal in their 5-1 win over Legia Warsaw.

There was late drama in Bruges too where Andre Silva’s stoppage time penalty gave Porto a dramatic 2-1 win.

Spurs are hanging on, making a final change as Son Heung-min is replaced by Josh Onomah in stoppage time.

What a save from Schmeichel! Andreas Cornelius looks certain to score after connecting with a low Santander cross, but the Leicester stopper dives to his right to make a crucial stop in the final minute.

Leicester are closing in on tree points as they make a second change with two minutes to play, Leonardo Ulloa coming on for Slimani. The Foxes stick with two up top despite the late Copenhagen pressure.

As Bayer ramp up the pressure on Spurs again, there’s been another big goal elsewhere in this group as Monaco have equalised at CSKA Moscow. Bernardo Silva pouncing with just three minutes left.

Chance for Copenhagen! A cross in the box finds Santander but he ca not keep his header down as he nods over the crossbar.

Five minutes left at the King Power Stadium as Claudio Ranieri makes his first change with Jamie Vardy going off to a loud ovation as he is replaced by Shinji Okazaki.

It is been an open game this, certainly better value than the damp squib on show at Anfield last night. Spurs have found an attacking edge having weathered that attacking Bayer storm, but it is still an even game and both sides will still be keen to find a winner.

My money is still on the home side though as Kiessling clumsily bundles a near post cross from Kevin Kampl wide.

Copenhagen are finding a second wind against Leicester who are still yet to make a substitution. In truth this game should already be as good as over with Slimani having had a strike controversially ruled out. But heading into the final 10 minutes the Danish side sniff an equaliser…

Bruno Cesar has pulled a goal back for Sporting Lisbon as they trail Borussia Dortmund 2-1, while Lucas Vazquez has made it 4-1 to Real Madrid against Legia Warsaw. Miguel Layun has equalised for Porto at Club Bruges.

Juan Cuadrado has given Juventus the lead at Lyon after firing home at the near post from a very tight angle.

It”s hard to keep up with the volume of Bayer chances in this half. Omer Toprak has already had a free header directed straight at Lloris, and now the Bayer star fires a half-volley wide following another failed Tottenham attempt to clear a corner.

Spurs are very fortunate to still be level as Stefan Kiessling fires wide of the near post from inside the box.

The German side wo not keep missing as Moussa Sissoko comes on for Erik Lamela.

‘Madrid police say they detained seven Legia Warsaw fans after disturbances outside of the Santiago Bernabeu in the build-up to tonight’s game.

‘The Polish club have already been told to play their next Champions League game against Real Madrid behind closed doors after crowd trouble marred their last Champions League home game against Borussia Dortmund in September.

‘On the pitch Madrid still lead 3-1 although it’s not Ronaldo’s night so far and he has just been booked.’

Leicester City have the ball in the Copenhagen net as Islam Slimani converts Jamie Vardy’s low cross, but the strike is ruled out for offside – replays show that is quite a harsh decision.

In an attempt to weather this Bayer storm, Mauricio Pochettino throws on Mousa Dembele in place of Janssen.

Here is how Lloris has kept Spurs level in Germany:

At least Leicester City found their feet in this second period. Riyad Mahrez’s fine along the penalty box results with the forward shooting across goal, only for a defender to make a crucial interception.

Spurs really ca not complain if they fall behind now – it is all Bayer! Admir Mehmedi’s low 20-yard strike forces Lloris to once again leap low to his right to push the ball behind.

Backs to the wall for Spurs, it is been a terrific opening to the second half from Leverkusen. Lloris is again to the rescue as he pushes a 25-yard free-kick from Charles Aranguiz wide, before the Spurs defence clear off the line and divert a shot over the crossbar following a corner.

It seems both the Premier League sides are struggling at the start of the second half. As Bayer put the pressure on Tottenham, Copenhagen are too pressing for an equaliser at the King Power Stadium.

Bayer are inches away from taking the lead – maybe even millimeters… it may even be over the line!

Hernandez gets on the end of a low cross into the Tottenham box, but Lloris scampers across his line to JUST keep the ball out.

Now it is Bayer Leverkusen’s turn to have a goal ruled out following Vincent Janssen’s earlier effort, but despite the home side rolling the ball into an empty net, Javier Hernandez had been penalised for tripping Hugo Lloris.

Julian Baumgartlinger has replaced Hakan Calhanoglu at the break for Bayer Leverkusen.

A couple of goal updates to bring you. Samir Nasri has opened the scoring for Sevilla at Dinamo Zagreb while Julian Weigl has doubled Borussia Dortmund’s lead at Sporting Lisbon.

It is not been all Spurs though, Javier Hernandez firing wide with a low effort that Hugo Lloris always had covered.

It is not been a livly night for the former Manchester United striker so far.

So close to an equaliser! A corner finds Andreas Cornelius, but the Cardiff City flop powers a header across goal and narrowly wide across the post.

Forget Leicester’s domestic struggles, they are flying in Europe! Riyad Mahrez gives the Foxes the lead five minutes before the break after his clever flicked finish from close range comes following a knock on from Slimani.

Close from Spurs! Vincent Janssen hits the bar with a header, while Erik Lamela’s volleyed rebound is well tipped over by Bernd Leno.

From Sportsmail’s Pete Jenson:

‘Football for fun in Madrid. Real look like scoring every time they attack and Legia have already hit a post and scored a penalty. And now Asensio puts the home team 3-1 up.’

A big goal elsewhere in this group as CSKA Moscow have taken the lead against Monaco though Lacina Tarore – who is on loan from Monaco.

Meanwhile in France Alexandre Lacazette has seen a penalty saved by Juventus stopper Gianluigi Buffon.

Leicester are not finding it easy to create chances at the King Power. Jamie Vardy manages to get to the left byline to put in a cross, but he fails to pick out Islam Slimani inside the box as Olsen takes comfortably.

Great chance for Spurs! Good play picks out Kieran Trippier on the right, whose quality cross into the centre is powerfully headed wide by Dele Alli.

The Spurs midfielder perhaps could have done better, and judging by Mauricio Pochettino’s frustrated reaction on the touchline, he knows it too.

Leicester City are also starting to display authority over Copenhagen, where rain is also falling heavily.

It should make any player more cautious on the sliding challenge but that does not stop Santander from clattering into Danny Drinkwater.

Tottenham still have more of the ball and are now starting to find gaps in the Bayer Leverkusen defence as they take control of this first period. Only a poor Delle Alli pass fails to release Janssen in goal.

Make that 2-0 to Real Madrid, as Karim Benzema’s cut-back for Marcelo results in his low strike deflecting in at the near post. That’s game over at the Bernabeu then…

…except Legia Warsaw win a penalty moments later and Miroslav Radovic pulls a goal back from the spot.

Gareth Bale has fired Real Madrid ahead against Legia Warsaw after cutting inside from the right and firing low across goal.

Meanwhile Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has fired Borussia Dortmund ahead at Sporting Lisbon while a Jelle Vossen effort has put Club Bruges ahead against Porto.

Vincent Janssen has the ball in the net! Too good to be true, Spurs fans? You are damn right it is. It is correctly ruled out for offside and it denies the Dutch striker his first Tottenham goal against major opposition – no disrespect to Gillingham.

‘The relentless rain has driven Mauricio Pochettino from the touchline and into the shelter of the dug-out. Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt is toughing it out in his suit and trainers.’

Spurs are seeing plenty of the ball but it is all inside their own half. They are being heavily pressed by Bayer Leverkusen who force an error as Hugo Lloris’s pass out falls short of Danny Rose, but the resulting cross is taken by the French keeper.

Curiously, Leicester City break and in trademark fashion try to pick out Jamie Vardy with a long ball over the top. Copenhagen have done their homework though, and Robin Olsen is quickly out his goal to make the interception.

Kasper Schmeichel is called into action in the Leicester City goal, blocking a shot at the near post from Federico Santander. You could always bank on the Foxes keeper keeping that out though… I will get my coat.

Someone has smuggled a few flares in at Leicester City among the away fans in the corner It is a packed house at the King Power Stadium – a fabulous atmosphere too.

‘Bayer Leverkusen fans boo Son Heung-min’s name when it is read out before kick-off. Son left under a cloud for Spurs last year but was hoping for a warm welcome and has promised not to celebrate if he scores.’

‘Teams out warming up at the rainy BayArena in Leverkusen, Spurs in their orange training tops, appropriate for Dutch striker Vincent Janssen who is back in the team.

‘Eric Dier starts in central defence as expected, with teenage defender Cameron Carter-Vickers on the bench.

‘Kevin Wimmer has travelled to Germany but is not even among the substitutes. Wimmer’s only appearance this season was in the EFL Cup against Gillingham.

‘Hopefully he’s enjoyed a trip back to the region where he used to play down the road, for Cologne.’

While Tottenham face a fight in the second half of this Champions League group stage, Leicester could play their remaining three games with their feet up.

After a surprise home defeat by Monaco to open up their Champions League campaign, Tottenham hit back with a win in CSKA Moscow and results elsewhere have left this group wide open.

A draw in Germany and victory for CSKA this evening would leave just one point separating all four sides at the halfway point.

Having been thumped 3-0 at Chelsea on Saturday, Claudio Ranieri makes four changes to his side for their clash with Copenhagen.

Riyad Mahrez returns to the team along with Andy King, Islam Slimani and Danny Simpson as Ahmed Musa, Daniel Amartey, Jeff Schlupp and Luis Hernandez drop out the team.

Schmeichel, Fuchs, Huth, Morgan, Simpson, Albrighton, Drinkwater, King, Mahrez, Slimani, Vardy.

Legia, Navas, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo, Danilo, Kroos, James, Asensio, Bale, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Mauricio Pochettino makes four alterations to the Tottenham team that grabbed a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in the Premier League.

Toby Alderweireld’s injury means he is replaced in defence by Eric Dier, while full-backs Kyle Walker and Ben Davies drop out the team in favour of Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier.

Son Heung-min comes back into the team against his former side as Moussa Sissoko drops out.

ADAM SHERGOLD: Walk through any town or city in Mexico and the face of Javier Hernandez is never too far away. He gazes down from billboards advertising telephone companies, banks, soft drinks, even bread.

The striker’s nickname – ‘Chicharito’ or ‘little pea’ – is emblazoned on the reverse of the green shirts of the Mexico team and, in what is a slightly bizarre sight, the red and black of Bayer Leverkusen.

It is solely because of the country’s young poster boy that Leverkusen have overnight become the second team of many Mexicans.
