FT: Sheriff Tiraspol 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
90+2' Tottenham just closing things down now. It was hardly a comfortable win for them, but they'll no doubt be happy to have taken the full three points having come such a long way. Now the focus shifts back to the league.
90+1' There will be a minimum of three minutes of time added.
90' Into the final minute of normal time, now. Tottenham about to rise to a perfect nine points from three matches in the group.
88' Final change for Sheriff - Paireli replaces Isa.
The Defoe goal for Tottenham:
85' Although Spurs are still at 77% possession both they and Sheriff have managed 11 shots. Spurs have hit the target four times to Sheriff's two.
84' Sheriff with another change - Fernando replaces Cadu. And more than one Spurs player won't be sorry to see the back of him.
81 - Chance - best yet for Sheriff, Isa clean through centrally, proded wide as Lloris dahsed out to meet him. 2-0.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 24, 2013
82' Isa! He really should have scored! The Bulgarian raced in to chase a loose ball and beat Lloris to it, but he just couldn't slip it into the open net!
Villas-Boas made a change shortly after the goal - Holtby for Sandro.
Chadli, who has been an instant improvement on Lamela since coming off, dished the ball to Defoe who smashed it past Tomic from all of 30 yards to double Spurs' lead with a quarter-hour to play.
75' GOAL TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR! Defoe gets it, and he equalizes Martin Chivers' European goalscoring record for the club!
73' Defoe holds the ball up for Chadli who finds Dembele. Good movement here from Spurs, but Chiriches misplaces his eventual effort.
70 - Chance for Sheriff - breakaway down the left, ball found Ricardinho, shot on target hit Dawson and out for corner.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 24, 2013
71' Luvannor, who has been outstanding, rushes down the left and dishes for Ricardinho, who forces a corner. Cadu delivers and it's cleared.
70' Frudui has replaced Moyal for Sheriff. It's their first substitution of the night.
67' Lennon! He hasn't been all that noticeable, but he just hit the upright! Sheriff put the ball out for the corner; Eriksen takes, and again the delivery is a poor one.
66' Chadli earns a corner, takes it himself but misplaces it and Naughton is required to clean up the mess as Sheriff break downfield.
61' Tottenham substitution - Chadli has replaced Lamela, who was disappointing.
58 - Cadu in space, right side, shot deflected, bobbled around, Sandro slid in to clear.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 24, 2013
59' Cadu dispossesses Eriksen and Sheriff break. Luvannor involved but the ball comes back to Cadu, who can't quite get his shot off. Meanwhile, Moyal picks up a yellow card as Spurs come back the other way.
58' Sheriff doing well to force Spurs to pass the ball around well outside their 18-yard box. Good pressure from the hosts - and there's always that threat of the counter, if only they can avoid the off-side trap that has been their nemesis this evening.
