FT: Anzhi Makhachkala 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
90+1' There will be three minutes of time added.
90' Eriksen dances into meaningful space but Abdeleye stands his ground and turns play the other direction. He's been excellent tonight, Abdeleye.
87' Solomatin breaks downfield again. Traore controls the layoff and Anzhi begin a spell of possession. Jucilei looks for Gadzhibekov but there's too much weight on the pass.
85' Lloris! Solomatin, who has been impressive since the restart, tests the Spurs goalkeeper again. The Frenchman denies the Anzhi forward at full stretch. Was rather a chance that came from nothing.
79.5% - Erik Lamela's passing accuracy against Anzhi, the lowest of all Tottenham's outfield players. Hauled.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 3, 2013
83' Defoe with his first chance of the second period but his shot from just outside the 18-yard box goes well over the bar.
80' Ten minutes remaining at Saturn Stadium. Anzhi have improved since the introductions of Traore and Eshchenko, but while they did manage at least two good scoring chances they continue to trail by a pair of goals with the clock ticking.
78' Tottenham make their final change, bringing on Eriksen for Holtby. Meanwhile Anzhi replace Angbwa with Gadzhibekov.
76' Defoe has barely had a sniff since the break. Spurs now trying to slow things down before this threatens to get away from them.
75' Spurs now operating a bit higher up, but they lose the ball and Traore breaks. Tottenham haven't been all that impressive since the restart, and they're having one hell of a time trying to contain Traore.
71' Double change for Spurs. Kaboul has picked up a slight knock and is replaced by Dawson; Sigursson replaces Lamela.
69' Solomatin went to ground feeling Kaboul's breath on his neck, but the referee wasn't moved despite Anzhi's shout for a penalty.
67 - Pressure from Anji. Traore forced Chiriches into couple of clearances, Kaboul hacked away Ahmedov's cross.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 3, 2013
67' Spurs' rate of possession in this match was once 75%. A rejuvinated Anzhi have cut that number to 68%.
65' Traore absolutely bowls over Walker as he chases down a high pass. The big man has given Anzhi a shot in the arm.
Jucilei looking good today against Spurs.— Nazareth da Gama (@Nazdagama) October 3, 2013
61' Traore proving a handful for the Spurs defense, and Eshchenko continuing to fly down that left flank as well. Ahmedov gets by Fryers but Kaboul intervenes.
59' Lloris! The Spurs goalkeeper called into another good stop after Solomatin unleashed one following Sandro's give-away. Much better from the hosts.
57' And straight away Eshchenko makes a nuissance of himself, running downfield and laying the ball off to Traore. Lloris forced into making the save.
56' Eshchenko has replaced Tagirbekov at left-back for Anzhi.
51' Chadli! He puts his shot just wide following Lamela's pass on the counter-attack.
50' Little spell of possession here from Anzhi. Traore dropping deep to involve himself but Spurs not really letting their opponents a foothold in the attacking third.
48' Holtby goes down in a heap under Adeleye's challenge. Should be fine.
