Comfortably leading their Europa League group with perfect winning results up till now, Tottenham Hotspur are keen on ensuring their passage into the knock out stage of the competition, which could very well happen should they bagged another three points on Thursday, November 7 when they face up against FC Sherrif. Already beating the same opponent on match day 3, Andre Villas-Boas' men are surely expecting similar outcome will arrive this midweek, especially since that upcoming encounter is being held at White Hart Lane.
In the end it was another victory for Spurs as they ensured their passage into Europa Leauge knock out stage, thanks to goals from Eric Lamela on 60 minutes along with Jermaine Defoe decisive spot kick seven minutes later. Sheriff themselves only managed to pull one back through Ismail Isa on 72 minutes, making the final score line at White Hart Lane, 2-1 for the home side.
On paper, it's difficult to expect Sheriff to pull off a shock result, but should Spurs didn't take things seriously they might suffered disappointment in front of their home crowd. Villas-Boas will be sure not to let any minor result occurring this midweek as immediately ensuring their qualification, could help the Lilywhites' push in Premier League.
