Spurs Keen to Hold Off Lyon

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are setting themselves up for a difficult second leg battle in Europa League as they travel to Lyon and try to maintain the 2-1 aggregate lead Andre Villas-Boas’ men had in the first leg.

Speaking to the media ahead of the match, Villas-Boas admitted that it will be difficult to face Lyon on Thursday as the French side will be having a high motivation as the chance to qualify is still wide open.

The Portuguese manager will try their best to keep their opponent away from scoring in that match, and getting through into the next stages of Europa League.
