Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 6pm GMT. Live coverage of the game will be available on ITV 4.


Juande Ramos' men made it to the last-32 of the second tier of the European competition after finishing second in Group E, trailing first place Fiorentina by four points. Dnipro lost only twice in the group stages, losing twice to the Italian club in both home and away fixtures.

Ramos was in charge of the north London club in 2007-08, before the Spaniard was shown the exit door. Dnipro would be looking for nothing less than a win against Spurs and their manager will be hoping to restrict the visitors from scoring.
