Tottenham Hotspur vs. FC Basel: Lineups and match thread

Christopher Lee

Come chat with CFC as Spurs take on Basel in Europa League.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on FC Basel in the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tie. Below, you can find lineups. Surprise, Lewis Holtby! We've got Everton on the weekend so we're doing a bit of rotating (Friedel and Gallas have their usual cup roles), but it's a first team for the most part.

Lewis Holtby's inclusion is a slight surprise to me, but it's a welcome one. I assume he'll start wide left instead of in the center. He's probably not as good at that inside-out, central winger thing as Gylfi Sigurdsson, but I'm down with rotating.

Kickoff is at 8 p.m. local, 3 p.m. ET from White Hart Lane.
