25
Game turned a little scrappy. Sigurdsson this time committing a foul. Spurs defend the free-kick well.

13
Perfect start for AVB. It's the early goal we talked about. Can they get another quickly?

11
Grigalashvili with a great run into the box and it's a corner. Spurs defend it well though.

10
Tbilisi defending very deep. Appear happy for Spurs to have the majority of the ball.

9
AVB saying before the game that his business in the transfer market is not necessarily over. Will be interesting. In the meantime Capoue again with a couple of nice flicks.

8
Capoue and Paulinho link well but the Brazilian fires over from distance. High and wide.

7
Confusion in the home sides ranks and Soldado nearly finds an opening. Warning signs already.

Tbilisi win a free-kick but it's taken quickly and Xisco it is who is offside this time

5
Decent start by Spurs. Plenty of the ball. AVB will be happy. An early goal and he'll be delighted.

5
Rose again trying to get forward down the left and wins his side a throw.

4
Dvali thought he was clean through then but the flag is up for offside.

3
Dembele playing slightly further forward.He will be looking to link up with Soldado whenever he can.

2
That's Loria and not Lloris. He's in goal for Spurs of course.

2
Rose with a cross from the left but it's relatively comfortable for Loria.

1
Kaboul with a few early touches of the ball and then he elects to hit it long towards Soldado.

1
And we're off. Spurs get us started...

First start for Kaboul in over a year. Big night for him. Here come the teams...

The teams are in the tunnel. Kaboul appears incredibly focused.

Stadium is relatively empty. Capacity is 55,000. Spurs will want the job done before the return leg in London.

All the talk pre-match is about Gareth Bale. But, surely Andre Villas-Boas' side have a squad big enough to challenge on all fronts this year.

Spurs made a winning start on Sunday against Crystal Palace. Will Soldado be the hero again or will it be one of the other new faces?

You can let me know your thoughts on the game via Twitter @FootballMcD and I will try to post as many as I can.

If you fancy a bet on the game why not head over to our friends at Sky Bet for all the markets before and during the action.

Spurs starting XI: Lloris, Naughton, Dawson, Kaboul, Rose, Capoue, Paulinho, Townsend, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Soldado.

Dinamo Tbilisi starting XI: Loria, Khurtsilava, Gvelesiani, Kvaratskhelia, Glisic, Grigalashvili, Dzaria, Kvirkvelia, Merebashvilli, Xisco, Dvali.
