Tottenham Hotspur vs. Dinamo Tbilisi, 2013 UEFA Europa League: Lineups and match thread

This tie is all but over, but we don't care. Come chat with Cartilage Free Captain as Tottenham Hotspur take on Dinamo Tbilisi.

Scott Heavey

Tottenham Hotspur lead Dinamo Tbilisi 5-0 on aggregate after the first leg of their Europa League playoff tie, so it's safe to say that we'll be seeing Spurs in the group stage of the competition. Because this tie is all wrapped up and a North London Derby is looming, Andre Villas-Boas is taking this opportunity to play some young players, as well as those who need to work their way back to fitness after injuries.

It's good to see Sandro, Lewis Holtby and Younes Kaboul out there. I like that we're finding starts for Brad Friedel and Jermain Defoe as well. And of course, yay Tom Carroll! I would have liked to see Zeki Fryers out there instead of Jan Vertonghen, who I really don't want to risk ahead of the derby, but we can't get everything we want.

Kickoff is at 8:05 p.m. local time, 3:05 p.m. ET from White Hart Lane. You can catch the game on ITV 4 in the UK and ESPN3 in the United States.
