Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will field an inexperienced side in the group stage match.

Kyle Walker is the only player who started against Wolves to make the trip, leaving most of the senior squad, including the likes of Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Scott Parker, to rest up ahead of Sunday's game against Liverpool.

Injuries to the likes of Rafael van der Vaart (hamstring), Michael Dawson (Achilles) and Sandro (knee) mean that fringe players Giovani Dos Santos, Sebastien Bassong and Andros Townsend will start.

Tottenham (from): Gomes, Cudicini, Archer, Bassong, Corluka, Walker, Waller-Lassen, Livermore, Townsend, Fredericks, Carroll, Nicholson, Parrett, Pavlyuchenko, Dos Santos, Falque, Kane, Lancaster, Pritchard.
