Tottenham Hotspur welcome Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk to White Hart Lane in the last-32 second leg tie of the Europa League on Thursday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 8:05pm GMT. Live coverage of the game will be available on ITV 1, ITV 1 HD, ITV +1 and UTV.


Spurs' previous competitive fixture in the Premier League ended in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday.

Robert Snodgrass' goal early in the second-half was enough for the Canaries to gain three points. They currently sit fifth in the league table with 50 points, six adrift of fourth placed Liverpool after 27 matches.

Tim Sherwood's side endured a 1-0 defeat against Dnipro in the first leg at Dnipro-Arena as Yevhen Konoplyanka scored from the penalty spot after Jan Vertonghen brought down Matheus inside the 18-yard box.

Juande Ramos will be keen to knockout the north London club from the competition especially with the bitter memories he shares during his time as their manager. Dnipro have already prevented Spurs from scoring an away goal and will be keen to add that primarily on the night in an attempt to put the game beyond the home side's reach.

Dnipro are currently fourth in the Ukrainian Premier League table and their fixtures are set to resume this weekend as the winter-break comes to an end.

The team that progresses tonight will take on the winner between PAOK and Benfica in the round-of-16 of the competition.

What Managers Say

Tim Sherwood: "The personality is when you are playing at White Hart Lane, that's when you need it. It's a big stage, White Hart Lane, and it always has been and I remember that as a player. It's a big stage and it's a very demanding crowd - rightly so - and you can either play for a big club or you can't. Some of them have to still prove that they have got that character to be able to play for Tottenham."

Juande Ramos: "It is a satisfaction and joy to be the last (coach) who won a title, the last trophy won by Tottenham but I think it will not be long before they win another one because each year they invest more and have a big budget, they are spending a lot of money on players. They are changing the things that are not working and I believe it will not be long until they win another title."
